Go the Extra Mile for Your Valentine

Want to know the key to a successful Valentine's Day? Don't wait until the last minute! Sure, we've all done it; we waited until mere hours before meeting up with our sweeties to pick up Valentine's Day flowers. It takes little thought to pick up a bouquet on the way to see her, but how romantic is a gesture that you put no thought into? And just because you can get away with it doesn't make it any more romantic!

If you really want to prove to that lady how special she is to you, start planning your Valentine's Day at least a week before (2 weeks to be safe). Make reservations at a fantastic restaurant and order a spectacular flower arrangement—she's worth the effort. If you really want to sweep her off her feet, start your Valentine's Day gift giving a week ahead of time. Buy 6 little romantic gifts and leave her a little something every day leading up to the 14th. Here are some great ideas:

  • Write her a poem and leave it in her mailbox or sing a love song on her voicemail
  • Place some candles and some luxurious bath crystals next to her tub
  • Bring over a nice bottle of wine and some to-go food from a great restaurant
  • Make her a mixed CD of love songs and leave it in her car
  • Buy her a gift certificate to get her nails or hair done
  • Bring her to that show or movie that she's been dying to see
