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
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.
One word says it all: chocolate. Say "I Love You" with chocolate-covered strawberries, chocolate cake or chocolate ice cream - anything goes on Valentine's Day!
6. Score Deals at Krispy Kreme
Many stores offer special deals on Valentine's Day, including Krispy Kreme. When you buy a dozen Krispy Kreme doughnuts, you'll receive 12 doughnut valentines to give away - each one is worth one free doughnut. Redeem the valentine for a doughnut of your choice.
7. Get A Free Latte at Starbucks
Starbucks is celebrating the romantic holiday by offering customers a buy one, get one free deal on any two espressos or tea lattes from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. local time on Friday.
8. Watch "House of Cards" Together
Valentine's Day is especially unique this year since Netflix's hit series "House of Cards" premieres its Season 2 on Feb. 14. Use this opportunity to spend time with your partner at home while watching the next bold move by Frank Underwood (portrayed by Kevin Spacey).
