Thanksgiving isn’t the first holiday that comes to mind when you think of romance. Valentine’s Day or New Year’s Eve have that reputation locked down, while Thanksgiving seems more likely to involve eating too much and falling asleep on the couch. However, Thanksgiving involves a meal, which is one of the most basic kinds of date anyway. So, whether you’re far from family and friends or just want to spend some time alone with your significant other this Thanksgiving, there are plenty of ways to plan a romantic meal for two.
From going out of town and dining by candlelight to creating a special menu (think Cornish hens and Champagne), there are plenty of little touches that can help make Thanksgiving a romantic, intimate affair to rival any anniversary.
Here’s how to start planning your romantic Thanksgiving dinner for just the two of you: We guarantee it will be a success.
