Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to set aside some special time with your love, just the two of you. Gift giving is nice, but you should definitely plan on some quality time together to draw you closer to one another. There are a number of different things you can do, either traditional or non-traditional, depending on your interests. It can be as simple as a romantic dinner out, or a romantic evening in. It doesn’t have to cost you a fortune, either!

Go for a walk in the park.  If you want an accompanying gift, how about a delicious gift basket for a picnic while you are enjoying the outdoors.
