I’m hoping you’ll find this post romantic and creative, instead of what it actually is — really, really nerdy.
I started compiling things for this post a while back and though the “New Twitter” isn’t really new anymore, I am still obsessed with the video Twitter produced to promote it. If you missed it, check it out on YouTube here.
The short commercial follows a young man throughout his day and as the clip progresses, you realize that he has been preparing for a special date. I won’t ruin the end, but the video still gives me chill bumps when I watch it — it’s just so sweet! (I can’t help it, I’m a romantic.)
Inspired by the clip, I pulled together a toolkit of everything you need to recreate the special stargazing date. Check out the list below to find out where you can snag these wares and plan a romantic date of your own!
