Top 50 Romance-Inspired Ideas in March

From VR Valentine's Day Pop-Ups to Breadstick Bouquets

— March 30, 2019 — Lifestyle
The March 2019 romance trends are full of obscure Valentine's Day gift ideas, unique wedding ceremonies, niche dating apps, themed pop-up events, and more.

In preparation for spring break, Tinder updated its app with a new feature that helps college-aged users find others who are vacationing near them. Once users select the location that they're vacationing in, they're able to swipe left or right on those who've also activated the feature. This is highlighted on a colorful badge that appears on the upper right side of their profile. While the feature is specifically intended for vacationers, those who have chosen to stay home during the break can mark themselves as on "staycation" as well.

Also highlighted are Poundland's 'Bling Rings,' where were created for those who are keen on getting engaged but can't quite afford an elaborate proposal. The low-cost rings are meant to function as stylish placeholders for the real thing. The £1 rings come in both gold and silver varieties, with plenty of options for fake diamonds and other embellishments as well.
