Long gone are the days when Valentine’s Day breaks the bank and is riddled with the utmost corny and over-priced gifts…. it’s time to mix things up! From DIY-ing gourmet treats to taking a walk in the park, here are some one-of-a-kind ways to celebrate with that special person (or yourself of course!):

Sweets for ya Sweet

Forget the basic Valentine’s day treats and sweets pumped with fillers and artificial sweeteners. If your partner enjoys chocolate, impress them this holiday with a personalized chocolate bar. With just five ingredients, you can whip up a gourmet candy bar that can totally be enjoyed guilt-free, courtesy of Minimalist Baker.

Picnic

Mid February might just be the best or worst time to embark on an outdoor picnic. For those who enjoy year-round sunshine and warm weather (aka: Southern California), take your lover (or yourself) for a walk through the park accompanied with a picnic including their favorite foods. If this time of year is not optimal for exploring the outdoors in your town, set up a cozy picnic indoors!

Staycation

Roadtrip to a new destination in your area or explore the next town over.  If you really want to take it the extra mile, book one night in an airbnb to give yourself that getaway feeling. 

Ditch the flowers for flour

Ditch the reservations and create your own fancy dinner. Make your own memories by preparing a special recipe you’ve been dying to recreate. Check out this piadina recipe form Gozney for a great all-in-one, delicious meal that’s sure to impress.

Get sentimental

Nothing is quite more sentimental than recreating your first date. Relive the special day while reminiscing on sweet memories and simpler times.
