5) Time…

Time together to share love is ultimately what Valentine’s is about. Take a walk on the beach, swing in a hammock. If you’ve got nowhere to go, sometimes there’s no place like home. Take the time to set the stage – put a photo of the two of you on the table, a candle in front, a rose on the dinner plate. Time is sometimes the greatest gift.

  • Highlight: Careful attention to detail – candles, soft music…
  • When: February 14
  • Where: Your home, hotel room, etc.
  • Cost: Time and imagination!
