Doesn’t it seem that every year it’s the same story? As Valentine’s Day quickly approaches, the majority of us wait until the last minute to run to the store to grab a card, chocolate and “grocery store” flowers. Planning for Valentine’s Day can be tough, especially while juggling the regular day to day tasks. Now, there are those that make the rest of us look bad. The hopeless romantics that go above and beyond every year while the rest of us hold our stale chocolates, cards, and flowers. Planning for a romantic night with your special someone doesn’t have to be a daunting task. There are some simple and inexpensive ideas to make the night memorable for you and your loved one. Here are some ideas that you can incorporate.
Think outside the box...or in the box...
There are numerous subscription box companies out there that can curate a beautiful box filled with different themed items. However, you have to stick with the subscription. If you want to put together a unique box just for Valentine's Day you can take a note from those subscription box companies.
Spa Day Box
Imagine your loved one coming home to a candlelit bath and this box waiting for them. Instead of heading down the chocolate aisle of the store, head down the beauty aisle. Grab a bathbomb, a face masque, and some fancy lotion. Throw some soothing tunes on while they are taking their bath and welcome them with a nice glass of wine or champagne.
Conversation In A Box
Not going to lie, we are a little bias on this one, considering we were the ones who created Rehab-after dark. However, hear me out. We created this game for occasions like Valentine's Day. This game is and a great bottle of wine go hand and hand. Turn the tv off and put your cell phones away, take the time to reconnect as a couple.

Sushi Making Together
Cooking together can be...exhausting. Cleaning dishes, trying to figure out what to make, cooking in small quarters, sometimes it doesn't seem so romantic. However, making sushi together is something that you probably don't do often. It's unique and if neither of you has done it before, can be a fun experience. Who cares if it doesn't come out right, take the opportunity to do something different together. Open a bottle of wine, turn on some music and see where it takes you two.
These are just some ideas that you can incorporate this year to make Valentine's Day stand out from the normal chocolates, cards, and flowers. They don't take too much effort and are very affordable but the outcome will create an incredibly unique and romantic Valentine's Day.
