Get creative this Feb. 14

Valentine’s Day is a very commercial holiday. If you love someone you should not just show it once a year but throughout the whole year.

On Valentine’s Day women typically expect a dozen red roses and expensive wining and dining. But what unconventional or unique things can couples as well as singles do on Valentine’s Day?

Are you having trouble coming up with those last minute Valentine’s Day ideas?

I have a few ideas that are unique. It may be something your partner might just like.

The first step is buying some large paper, crayons, charcoal and colored pencils. Then, head off to the museum. When you get back both of you can create some of your own art or try to make each other’s portrait.

Another idea can be to go to a comedy club or even a play. Pick something that you both agree on. That way the night is enjoyable for the both of you.

Listening to music at a lounge or just relaxing and having coffee if you are tight on money is not a bad idea either. And the jazz music and dim lights set the romantic mood.

Cosi is a place I went to once, roasted marshmallows, made s’mores and had coffee.

But a tip for the guys, if you are bringing a single flower, bring one for her and her mom; if you are bringing a bouquet bring a type of flower that means something to her.

The singles out there, the 80 million of us that will be on Valentine’s Day; don’t be alone! Spend it with friends that are single as well.

A popular thing now is to have a black party or an un-Valentine’s Day party.

If you are not into the parties, this is a day all about you; indulge in food, beauty and maybe even buy something new for yourself.

Don’t forget that you love your friends and your family. Try to be around the people that you love on this day. That is what Valentine’s Day is about. Just being around the people you love and it does not have to be a significant other.
