You all know the usual Valentine's Day dates, and there's nothing wrong with traditional. Who doesn't like a nice dinner or a night out?
But, if you're looking for something a little different, we have five great ideas that are sure to mix things up a bit for you and your special someone.
Get a cool car for the night
We get it. The outdoors isn't for everyone. But if you and your significant other prefer getting out of the house and into nature, go for a hike. Find some new trail you haven't checked out and go exploring together. You'll find that doing something that you both like over what you "should" do on Valentine's Day is unquestionably the better option.
Depending on where you live, this one might not be an option. February isn't so pleasant outside for many. But, if where you live is warmer (or Cupid has sent some unseasonal warmth your way), this will be a lot of fun. Grab a thick blanket to lay on and another one to cuddle under—you have to stay warm, right? And it's that simple so you should get creative with this one. If you want to see more stars than usual, drive outside the city. Take your night of stargazing to a hilltop, and you'll see even more.Pro tip: most of us don't know our constellations and, of course, there's an app for that. Just search for stargazing on your phone.
From time to time, we all find ourselves in seasons of unusual busyness. During those times, all we want is a break. If you find yourself slammed day-in and day-in, you could always spend this year's Valentine's Day in. If you have kids, maybe a relative can take them for the night, or you can get a hotel and an overnight sitter. This doesn't mean you don't celebrate Valentine's at all. A card, maybe some flowers, chocolate, or a nice bottle of wine, and a much-needed night of relaxation will likely be a night you fondly remember for years to come.---

P.S. Guys, don't worry. Valentine's Day is next week. It's the 14th every year. That's next Thursday. You're welcome.
