Time for Romance
February 4, 2009   
Article's tools:

Legend has it that St. Valentine was a Christian priest who officiated at secret weddings in defiance of a ban by Roman emperor Claudius II. The emperor had issued an edict forbidding people to get married to increase the pool of young men available for military service. For this, Valentine was sentenced to death. He went on to become the patron saint of people in love, while Feb. 14 became a day when love and romance is celebrated, a tradition that appeared for the first time in 14th-century England. Together with English immigrants, St. Valentine's day reached America and from there it spread all over the world.

Slinky gifts

As a present, lingerie signifies intimacy in a relationship. Exclusive lingerie makes a woman feel special and provocative lingerie can awaken fantasies, but either way, it has to be of the best quality possible. The Lanoro chain sells exclusive lingerie from well-known brands such as Barbara, Victoria's Secret, Elixir, Feraud, Lejaby, Rasurel and Skiny. You can find Lanoro stores at several shopping malls in Warsaw, but the largest one is situated on 5 Konstytucji Sq.

Flower Power

Valentine's Day would not be Valentine's Day without flowers. A flower delivery is a perfect idea for a surprise gift. You can have a glorious bouquet delivered to a different different part of Warsaw or Poland in just two hours of placing your order.

Expres Kwiatowy (Flower Express) is a nationwide network bringing together select flower shops (1,100 stores) and florists across Poland. Every bouquet from Expres Kwiatowy is a unique composition arranged like a work of art and comprising a fine selection of fresh flowers. All you need to do is call Customer Service to talk to people who will answer all your questions, assist you in the choice of the best arrangement and take any unusual, customized orders to suit your recommendations and requirements. There is another reason that makes Expres Kwiatowy special. Since 2008, it has taken part in the Pajacyk campaign, which means that a part of the proceeds from every bouquet you buy from Expres Kwiatowy is donated to the Polish Humanitarian Action charity organization. Over the past six months Expres Kwiatowy has given financial support to 4,400 children from the poorest families in Poland. This company that has a big heart not only on Valentine's Day.

Magic of massage

Looking for something really special as your Valentine's present? Something that your beloved can use for many years to come? How about a "living" piece of furniture with therapeutic properties which can also give you a lot of pleasure? Here's the deal: You sink into a soft armchair that has a remote control or small display in one of the armrests. This is your control center.

Suddenly you feel the footrest wrap around your feet and calves, your legs bend and the hand of an invisible masseur starts rubbing your back. The chair vibrates and pulsates at a variable rate and intensity, with a computer calculating your muscle tone and other parameters to adjust the massage to your individual needs. A quarter of an hour later you feel warm and relaxed like you have been working out intensively. "What happens is this: the chair fits an hour's worth of a masseur's work into just 15 minutes," says Maciej Marcifczak, the owner of the Fotele Masujace (Massage Chairs) store at the Blue City shopping mall. "These chairs offer several dozen kinds of massage each. The chairs have therapeutic properties, they leave you relaxed, alleviate pains and help your body get firm and slim. We sell office chairs, lounge chairs featuring both classic and modern designs and special mats for whirlpool tubs. The prices start from zl.3,500."

Specially for Valentine's Day, the Fotele Masujace store (179 Jerozolimskie Ave.) invites couples to receive a free massage at the store and on Feb. 13 and 14, selected chair models will be available at a 5-percent discount.

Endless Love

Nothing is nicer than giving endless love at Valentine's Day. Love comes in the form of a magical collection made by Frey Wille to make those that are closest to our heart happy.

All of its collections - for instance Hundertwasser or Contemporary Art include a diverse array of popular designs.

Taste of romance

The respected Carlo Rossi brand has recently unveiled its new sparkling wine in Poland: Carlo Rossi Red Sparkling. The ruby color, its invigorating flavor of grapes and refined flavor of ripe fruits appearing when the wine is chilled are a perfect accompaniment to an evening for two. Wine producer Carlo Rossi is a proud sponsor of a series of events designed to promote the album Sygnowano Fabryka Trzciny vol. 3.

The Warsaw Voice is a media partner of the project, which combines two dimensions of excellence: music and taste. Both the album and Carlo Rossi will put you in a fabulous mood- and not just on Valentine's Day.
