Tomorrow is February 14, and we all know what that means; the celebration of love to put pressure on all those with a special someone to plan a perfect day and find a perfect little something, or to inevitably feel bad for being without a special someone on Valentines Day. But worry not, for both of these scenarios we have a plan! A very sweet one for that matter. And also, you are never alone, you can always go solo and treat yourself in Qatar (it’s the perfect place for treating oneself) or go out with your special some ones A.K.A your family and friends. In Finland for example Valentines Day is celebrated with your friends, the theme being treats for everyone!

Thus, here are our proposals for a sweet Sunday whether it is with your friendly Valentines or your one and only Valentine!

 

1. The Elixir of Love

Angelina is still somewhat of an insider tip. The French café is located in the Gate Mall and is absolute decadence. Macaroons, French pastries and cakes baked to perfection served with the finest teas straight from Paris this will make for an amazingly sweet Valentines Day. Angelina leaves no room for disappointment when it comes to sweetness!
