February 14 – whether you love the day or hate it, if you’ve got a special girl in your life, she’ll appreciate you taking the time to make it special for her. Here are a few ways to do just that:
1. Have a picnic in the park
She will think you’re the cutest for this. And she’ll love the effort you put into it to make it special for her.
2. Sing to her outside her window
She’s lying if she says she doesn’t think this is super adorable.
3. Take a walk along the shore, or rent bikes to ride on the beach
And bring a kite to fly in the sand.
4. Buy ingredients for her favorite dessert and bake it together
She’ll look cute in an apron, and she’ll love baking with you. Win-win.
5. Set up a photo booth
Bring silly props and take some funny photos together. Get the cute pictures framed for a gift to surprise her with later on.
6. Go to a festival
There are all kinds – hot air balloon festivals, music festivals, film festivals, cultural festivals. Give one a try.
7. Go to an amusement park
Rollercoasters and funnel cakes – what’s not to love? Make her really swoon by winner her a giant stuffed bear at one of the booths.
8. Get tickets to a concert, play or show she’d love to see
It will be a fun night out, and will let her know you care about her interests.
9. Go sledding
And then build a snowman before snuggling up with hot cocoa and cookies.
10. Go for a romantic boat ride
Star gazing on the water? She’ll be so happy.
11. Take a dance class
Again, she’ll think you’re adorable for doing this with her. And you’ll both learn some new moves you can use on future dates together.
12. Recreate your first date
(Unless this is your first date, obviously.) Go to the same restaurant or spot and show her that you remember all the cute details from that night.
Even if your girl says she doesn’t want you to make a big deal out of Valentine’s Day, this is your chance to show her what a romantic you can be. It doesn’t have to be a big deal, but choosing one of these ideas will let her know how much you care about her.
