Come February 14th each year, couples wonder if their other half is planning everything, singles loudly express their distaste for the "Hallmark Holliday" and let's not even get started on people who just started dating and now have to navigate a relationship land mine with more precision than a bomb disposal squad.
But it doesn't have to be that stressful! Just do whatever makes you and your partner happy - and if you're single, celebrate yourself! Whether you want to go nuts with a hot air balloon ride and wine or just want to spend the night in with pizza (and probably still wine), Valentine's Day can be whatever you damn well, please.
Valentine's Day date ideas in your city
Valentine's Day Flowers
What would Valentine's Day be without flowers? No, seriously. Without flowers, the whole holiday might cease to exist.
You might be a traditionalist at heart and be looking to send your lucky lover a dozen red roses. Or maybe you want to break tradition and send sunflowers. Or peonies. Or a cactus. Whatever floats your boat, you can order it online and ensure it's delivered by Valentine's Day.

How to choose a Valentine's Day gift
How long have you been dating for?
Only been dating for a few months? Maybe skip on something overly expensive and romantic, and opt for something you can do together as a couple. Of course, if you've been dating for a few years and your budget persists, you can opt for something a little more fancy.
Personality, personality, personality.
Hopefully if you've been dating for a while, you have some idea of their personality and what makes them tick. Get all psychological on them and find the WHY of how they spend their time. Do they exercise a lot? It could be because they love getting physical in the outdoors, are a high achiever in all things (including their body), or they place a high value on image. Or it could be all three. Asking the why will help you unlock personality ticks and find the perfect gift – even if it has nothing to do with where you originally started.
Age matters. But not as much as you think.
What's more important is the life stage they're at. Are they at university? Working full time? About to welcome in their first child – or grandchild? Numerical age isn't as important as life stage.
Hobbies. Or more importantly, what do they want to do but haven't done so yet?
Hobbies are an easy and obvious place to scrape ideas from. And hey, it works for a reason! A snowboarder will never say no to a new pair of goggles and a budding MasterChef will love the gourmet ingredients you got them. But if you want to go a step further, what's the one thing they want to do but haven't yet? Recently, an article on the 37 questions to ask to fall in love with anyone went viral. One of the questions was "Is there something that you've dreamed of doing for a long time? Why haven't you done it?" Find this out and you've hit present finding gold.
