Valentine’s Day cherishes love and romance and is a day to celebrate your partner – those you love, and yourself ! Below are a few handy hints and ideas from GLAD to help make your Valentine’s Day sweeter.

A romantic picnic?

  • Pack a picnic basket using snacky foods that you can enjoy under the sun or stars; use GLAD Zip Seal Snack Bags to store them, and to keep out any ants and to keep the food germ-free. Plus, you can wash and reuse them.
  • Wrap plates of food in Cling Wrap to keep everything from spilling or messing.
  • Keep salad dressing or sauces in a small GLAD Zip Seal Snack Bags. To serve, simply snip the corner of the bag and pour!
  • Take a GLAD Refuse Bag with you to clean up after the picnic.
  • Make yummy heart shaped cookies which you can share with friends and family too.

A romantic dinner?

  • Use GLAD Bake & Cooking Paper to wrap meat, chicken or fish in individual ‘parcels’ to bake or steam – be creative and use different herbs and spices!
  • A heathy, low-fat way to cook is to use GLAD Bake & Cooking Paper over the pan, between the food and the pan. It has a special non-stick coating that eliminates the need for fats and oils. It also saves you pan-scrubbing time.
  • And for dessert… dip strawberries and berries into melted chocolate and refrigerate on a baking tray lined with GLAD Bake & Cooking Paper to stop them from sticking.
