But Valentine's Day requires a tiny bit more than just a trail of Post-It notes and a sandwich.
While it is still chilly out, a walk on the beach and watching the sunset is always something to behold. Just make sure to bundle up warm and keep your eyes to the horizon. And when the sun does get folded over by the waves, look to the sky and take in the pink and purple hues of the sky. It's magic.
Now, we would have suggested a beautiful dinner on the beach, but considering it is still winter, we wouldn't want anyone to get sick. But how about a romantic dinner at home, maybe by candlelight? Christmas has come and gone, but there will always come a time where twinkling lights come in handy.
Nothing says "Happy Valentine's Day" and romance like red roses, but there are hundreds of other beautiful flowers that can be used for such an occasion. Whether it's a single flower or a whole bouquet, flowers are a beautiful sentiment to give to your significant other. That or, add them to the table as a delicate decoration, or pull a Kanye and have a flower wall delivered. It's really up to you, so have fun!
Seeing as how Christmas was just a few months ago, we understand that gift-giving can seem slightly redundant, so consider putting together a DIY gift. A mixtape (CD?), maybe? Something that really maps your relationship and time together, that only you could give to each other.
