Still stuck on what to do to surprise your sweetie on Valentine’s Day? KFBB offers up some traditional ideas – flowers, jewelry, and such. If you’d prefer something a bit more creative and perhaps less expensive, the folks over at Get Rich Slowly have some simpler ideas, including the private rituals that all couples share (and be sure to read the comments – some good ideas there, too!):
When Kris and I were first dating in college, for example, I picked up a horse-chestnut from the quad. It was smooth and strong and beautiful. I liked it. On a whim, I gave it to Kris. “This is a love nugget,” I told her. “It’s a reminder of how much you mean to me.” For almost twenty years now, horse-chestnuts have been a sort of secret code between us. I know it’s silly, but I’d rather have Kris give me a “love nugget” than have her buy me something new.
Any tips or tricks from you on V-Day? Something unique or creative that you’d like to share with everyone? And if you’re taking your valentine to dinner tonight, where is the special destination?
