How to Have a Great Valentine's Day

In case you missed it - Valentine's Day is coming. Whether you're single or married or getting ready to propose, Valentine's Day can be a fun day with the right planning. Here are some ideas to make it a memorable one.

Flowers and Cards
Are flowers and cards a Valentine's Day cliché? Yes! So, should you skip them? No, because they can be really nice when done right. Instead of bringing her flowers for the Valentine's Day date, have flowers delivered at her work. You get bonus points if the flowers are a surprise!
Planning Tip: Since this is a busy day, beat the rush (and last-minute prices) by placing an advance order.

There's something so special about getting a card. But, don't pick up those generic ones that are everywhere. Online craft stores or gifting stores are your best bets for finding a card that is heartfelt and worth receiving on Valentine's Day. If you love DIY-ing, make a card.
Planning Tip: If you're ordering a card, take into account the time it will take for shipping.

Going out vs. Staying In
Does Valentine's Day have to mean going out to a fancy restaurant? No, it does not! Change things up this year and stay in on Valentine's Day. It doesn't have to be boring. All you need is two things food and decor. Let's talk food first. If you can put together a nice meal yourself, do that. But if it's too much, there are plenty of other options. Besides your favorite takeout, you can have a personal chef make a special meal for the two of you. Do you have a friend who happens to be a food blogger/great cook? Ask a favor!

About the decor, we have one word for you - candles. They make everything magical and you probably have some at home right now. If you're worried about the mess at home, you don't have to clean your whole house, just the place where you'll have dinner. If you have a backyard, a balcony, or any outdoor space, it is perfect for setting up a romantic Valentine's Day dinner.

Planning Tip: If you're cooking, plan the menu a week before and go grocery shopping at least 2 days before. For a catered meal, fix the details at least 2 weeks in advance. As for the decor, depending on your housekeeping skills, you may want to start the weekend before Valentine's Day.

Single on Valentine's Day
There's nothing wrong being single on Valentine's Day. Celebrate not having to celebrate Valentine's Day! Round up all your single friends and have a great time. Do something that you haven't done before like going to a new live music venue or go on a tour of a vineyard. Valentine's Day can be hard for some people. If you have a friend who is going through a difficult time, cheer them up! Trying to make a friend happy, is a great way to be happy yourself.     

Have a fun Valentine's Day with these ideas.
