Valentine's Day is always a toughie. Whether you're just starting out on your journey towards coupledom or you've been together for years, planning the perfect holiday is very important. Fail, and you could send her running for the door, but succeed and you'll be running for the bedroom.
You can always go the traditional route with flowers. But instead of sending them, hand-deliver a beautiful bouquet to her at work. She'll appreciate the thoughtfulness and the extra effort.
Surprise her with a special romantic get-a-way, even if its a hotel around the corner. It's always nice to get out of the house and more importantly--be alone! Here's a few spots in the city that are running Valentine's Day specials.
