I am blessed to have romantic partner. One winter he decided he wanted to take me on a picnic. It was winter, it was cold. His solution was to set up a tropical island in our bedroom. There was a palm tree in a pot. The picnic basket filled with goodies and wine. Frangapani and hibiscus flowers ( the fake kind it was winter) arranged in sand buckets. He dimmed the lights and set up candles all around the picnic rug.
He told a romantic story about how he was lost on this tropical island and how the most beautiful mermaid came and swept away his loneliness. We had a wonderful time and it lifted the winter blues.
