And plan a …

Casino night!

If you’re willing to take a gamble on a fun, sexy evening with your partner, make plans to create your own Sin City for a night. Check in to a casino for the evening and let the establishment spoil you, or take a chance on love at home. Dress up in your finest, sip champagne and partake in whatever games you like to play.

Claiming the Cowboy’s Heart (Match Made in Haven) by Brenda Harlen

And make plans for …

A family Valentine’s date!

Three (or four or six) isn’t a crowd when you have a family—it’s a crew! Celebrate the day with a date the whole crew will enjoy, whether an afternoon of bowling followed by a big, messy pizza party or dinner and a movie, family-style. What else is Valentine’s Day for if not to spend it with the people you love most?

Galentine’s Day!

Who needs a mate when you’ve got your squad? Plan a day with your besties and make it a perfect Galentine’s Day. Put together a wine and cheese party, go out for manis/pedis or spend the day watching rom-coms and eating take-out. Whatever you plan, plan for a day of fun and laughs with your gals.

Appetites & Vices (The Truitts) by Felicia Grossman

And enjoy an evening of …

High society pleasures!

This date idea is all about culture and sophistication, so start your evening with a tour of the latest exhibit at an art gallery, then proceed to a wine-tasting demonstration and from there, a late dinner at a fantastic restaurant. Feel free to go home for a liaison with your date afterwards—but beware of a little talk in the next day’s society pages.

If February 14 is supposed to be all about affairs of the heart, we promise yours will swell to bursting on a date like this.
