Valentine's Day 2014: 8 Romantic Ideas for What Couples Can Do

Couples everywhere are wondering what to do this Valentine's Day, and fortunately, we have come up with eight unique and sweet celebration ideas this year.

1. Make A Heart-Shaped Breakfast

A Hearty Recipe!

Valentine's Day may be associated with candle-lit dinners, but this year, offer your partner a romantic meal at the very start of the day this Friday, Feb. 14. Breakfast options include shaping cinnamon rolls into a heart or even arranging bacon strips into the same symbolic shape. See more ideas here.

2. Offer a Heart-Felt Compliment

On Valentine's Day, be sure to surprise the one you love with a compliment from the heart. This could come in the form of an unexpected email, text message, or even on a note hidden to be discovered at a later time.

3. Take a "Stay-Cation"

Very few couples are fortunate enough to celebrate Valentine's Day with a vacation each year, but you and your loved one can certainly be tourists in your own city on a "stay-cation." Instead of going away, look up any art exhibits, historical landmarks or new restaurants in your own neighborhood to explore this Friday.

4. Arrange A Custom Bouquet

For the flower enthusiast in your life, visit a local florist instead of ordering flowers online this year. Incorporate your loved one's favorite colors and hand-select pieces for a more personal, meaningful Valentine's Day gift.

5. Chocolate
