With February 14 just around the corner, romantics everywhere start wondering the same thing: how can I make Valentine’s Day special this year? Of course, there’s the traditional candlelit dinner and typical chocolate gifts — but sometimes you may want to mix it up a little (or a lot) and ditch the usual “dinner and chocolates” for something a little more creative and one-of-a-kind. Luckily, we’ve rounded up some of the best things to do on Valentine’s Day, so you and your beau don’t have to settle for a typical and unmemorable date on Valentine’s. Who wouldn’t want a truly unique night full of romance that you’ll both remember for years to come?

So instead of stressing over V-Day plans this year, simply choose a fun activity from our list, and you and your sweetheart (or group of friends!) will be feeling the love in no time — without any of the pressure of an elaborate outing! And whether you decide to stay in for a movie marathon or venture into the great outdoors this February 14, you’re of course guaranteed to have a good time — because you’ll be spending the day together.
