Cisco ūmi Loves Bringing Loved Ones Together on Valentine’s Day

- February 11, 2011 - 0 Comments

Pink cut-out hearts, red roses and a box of chocolates can only mean one thing. It’s almost Valentine’s Day! What are you doing for this romantic holiday?Not everyone is lucky enough to be in the same location as their special someone, and the time and money involved in flying cross-country often keeps us from spending time with those we love the most. With Cisco ūmi*, you can see your loved ones without even leaving your living room.

Here are some ideas if you’re celebrating via Cisco ūmi this February 14:

  • Pick a delicious recipe and have each person make the same meal. You can even cook “together” by pointing your ūmi camera at the kitchen. Once it’s all ready, sit down and share your culinary creations together. Even better if you light a candle and decide on a bottle of wine to “share!”
  • Play a game of good old-fashioned Charades by turning the sound off on your TV. Act out your favorite romantic movies and song titles and have your Valentine guess. Work as a team against another couple to guess as many as you can in a set amount of time.
  • Open gifts over ūmi so that you can see the look of excitement on your partner’s face. A lot of jewelry gets exchanged on Valentine’s Day—wouldn’t it be great to see it sparkle in high definition? (You may even be the first person to propose via Cisco ūmi; now wouldn’t that be a story!)

What other ideas do you have? Will any of you use Cisco ūmi for a special Valentine’s Day date?
