Special Gift Idea: Breakfast in Bed Photo Tray

My girlfriend and I love to eat in bed and just lye down right after we eat and watch TV. For Valentines day, I got her (us) a couple of these photo frames which are really bed trays so we could eat in bed (for whatever meal) and not have to worry about accidents. This made things much easier.
I put some photos I had picked out in the windows of our most happiest times together. She loved it. Now, every time we eat, she is reminded of how much of a sweetheart I am. Pretty awesome idea, right?!

The photo tray I got is from Bed Bath and Beyond

Groupon: Good Deals on Food & Activities

Groupon is a great way to get ideas for new places to eat and activities to do in your respective area. I am always trying to find new places to eat or visit or try out... and Groupon makes it easier on the wallet when doing so. Everyone could afford to save a few bucks (or $40) depending on the Groupon, and if you are the one reponsible for paying for most of the date, you can't afford not to use it!

So far, I have used it on The Farm @ The Grove, Famous Dave's, Go Karting, Bowling and a couple of hotels.

Romantic Date in Los Angeles: The Farm of Bevery Hills (The Grove)

I found this place via Groupon. I thought, "a 3 course meal in Beverly Hills for $40, why not?" Turned out to be a good deal. We had $80 worth of food, so I saved $40 or 50%.

The Grove is a nice place in itself to take your date during the daytime, but it is even more romantic at night. The crisp air and nigh sky filled with light from the surrounding stores makes a nice romantic environment. It can be a little crowded sometimes because it is an outdoor mall, but that is to be expected, especially in Beverly Hills.
After reading some tips on yelp, I decided to take my girlfriend on a nice little dinner. We sat by the fountain which was very romantic. The dancing water added some liveliness and excitement to the dinner. I had the salmon and my lady had the steak. The salmon was a 7/10 nothing to complain about, but nothing to rave about. The steak wasn't bad either, I would give it a 7.5/10.

The service was cool, nothing to complain about there. It's really about the setting that makes this a recommended place to go. You definitely want to make a reservation if you want to sit by the fountain (which is what makes The Farm special).
