Of course, you cannot go to a restaurant without money, so if there are material problems, a romantic dinner can be organized at home. This option is often chosen by married couples who have small children who are left with no one for the evening.
However, you should not be upset if you try, then at home you can organize a wonderful holiday. It is only necessary to think out his script well. In addition to delicious food, there should be a "cultural" program. It is not necessary to arrange a home striptease (if there are children at home, it can be embarrassing), you can simply talk to each other not about business or household chores, but about love, and watch some good movie.
Another classic option for a gala evening is a visit to a cultural event. Depending on interests, it can be a theatrical performance, an art exhibition, a concert. Or maybe you have not been to the cinema with your wife for a long time? Buy tickets to “places for kisses” and feel like high school students who escaped from school.
If the classic tradition of organizing the celebration of Valentine's Day seems boring, you can think of other options. Here are a few ideas that can be implemented.
Relax for two
Most of us work a lot, so proper rest is a prerequisite for maintaining health. Together, visit the sauna or spa, ordering the most pleasant relaxation treatments. Such a rest, for sure, will be very pleasant and useful.
Pictures on the home “soapbox” resemble the work of a professional photographer, like heaven and earth. Therefore, it is worth planning a professional joint photo session in a romantic style for the holiday. This is interesting, and the result in the form of beautiful pictures will delight for a very long time.
Winter is the time when you need to ski, sled and ice skate. There is no opportunity to go to a ski resort or at least for a country recreation center? Nothing! Go to the city skating rink. Such a joint vacation with a husband or a beloved boyfriend will help to shake it up. And if you take a thermos with hot flavored tea and sandwiches with you, you can have a snack while relaxing after skiing.
If the holiday is on weekends, you can spend it on a trip. Of course, few people can afford to fly to Paris for the weekend, but it is quite possible to go on an interesting excursion around the neighborhood. Contact the travel agency, for sure, they will offer several options for "weekend routes". And if there is a desire to save money, you can independently develop a travel program, Fortunately, now you can book tickets to museums and book hotel rooms online.
It is cold February outside, and you want heat so much! Is it possible to go to countries where there is eternal summer? Sumptuously! But, most likely, there is no such possibility, so you should go to the water park and have fun there, riding on a water slide and swimming in a warm pool. You can go to the water park together with your loved one or organize a party there, inviting your closest friends.
Why not visit an interesting workshop with a guy and get new skills? Today there is something to choose from. For example, why not go to a culinary workshop and learn from the real chef to cook original dishes?
Sweet tooths, for sure, would prefer to go to the lessons of making handmade chocolates. And connoisseurs of good wines will be happy to attend a lesson in which a professional sommelier will talk about the art of picking drinks, especially since such a lecture will be accompanied by wine tasting.
Walking under the stars
What could be more romantic than walking under a starry sky? Of course, in our climate in mid-February, the weather does not always dispose to night walks, and low clouds may not allow to see a single star. But it's not a problem. Enough to go to the planetarium to admire the stars in all their glory, and even learn a lot of interesting information.
If there is no money for entertainment, you can just wander around the city. Parks and entertainment centers often organize entertainment programs for city residents, in which you can take part completely free of charge.
Of course, here are not all options for organizing a holiday. Each couple can spend time as interesting to them.
The main thing is not where the holiday takes place, but how the lovers relate to each other. Even a simple walk with your beloved in the snow-covered square can bring more joy than a trip to Paris with a man who is annoying with his presence.
What to do alone?
So, the options are wonderful to spend the evening of February 14 with your beloved, there are many. What do lonely people do? Sitting at home, worrying about the fact that no one loves you? Alone, it is somehow inconvenient to go to the cinema or to a cafe. What to do? First of all, learn a few simple rules:
- Do not cheat yourself! Yes, today you have no beloved, but, who knows, suddenly fate prepared you a pleasant surprise in the form of a meeting with the right person on this particular February day, filled with romance? Therefore, no need to spoil your mood, because hardly anyone wants to meet a man who is angry at himself and the whole world.
- Search positive! In any event you can find positive moments. Yes, your past relationship ended, but would it be better if you continued to be with the unloved and unloving? And now you are free and open to love and new happy relationships.
- This holiday is for everyone! Valentine's Day is a holiday of all people, because we all love somebody - parents, children, friends, our cat, after all! So you should definitely try to make yourself enjoyable on this festive day.
Love to yourself
Even if you are so lonely that on a festive evening there is no one to call to cry about your "heavy" share, it is worthwhile to organize a holiday for the sake of love to yourself.
Sign up for a nice beauty treatments at the beauty salon. (epilation and anti-cellulite massage causing painful sensations should be left for another day). But relaxing massage, chocolate wraps, aromatherapy, hydromassage baths - all this will be the way.
Of course, all these procedures in the cabin are quite expensive, and you need to register in advance. If you are late or simply do not have enough money, you can arrange a spa salon at home. Fill the bath with fragrant foam, place the candles and feel Aphrodite, born from the foam.
Love for friends
Why not have a fun party with friends? It is unlikely that you will not find friends who do not know with whom to spend the evening. A fun "bachelor" party is a great way to spend Valentine's Day, and one more step to get acquainted with a guy who is free from relationships.
Love for others
If you can not overcome the feeling of self-pity about their loneliness, try to help those who are much worse than you.
In most cities there are charitable organizations that provide assistance to people in difficult situations, as well as abandoned animals. Helping those who are bad now will easily feel needed and happy.
Love to best friend
If both of you were at this time without a pair, then it is worth spending the evening with your girlfriend.
Evening can be spent at home, for sure, you will find a lot of topics that can be discussed. But it is better, of course, to go "to the people." Nothing that all around couples! Just change the installation in your head, that you are not alone, but free. And two free girls can afford a wide variety of entertainment.
You can organize for you a grand shopping, because no one except the best friend can give the best advice on choosing a dress or shoes. You can go to the cinema or the theater and see a beautiful melodrama, because this evening almost all films and plays about love are shown.
Do you want to not just have fun, and come off in full? Then choose the brightest outfit and go to the club to light it on the dance floor. Be confident in your irresistible and catch admiring glances of men.
So, regardless of whether you have a loved one or you are free so far, you can have a wonderful Valentine's Day. Forget about everyday worries and plunge into the romantic atmosphere of this wonderful holiday.

Flowers on February 14
Head the wish-list of gifts, of course, flowers. And it’s not scary that winter is in the yard - snow-white tulips, passionate bright red roses, exotic orchids, at times, speak well for the donor about his tender feelings.
The list of places where you can buy a great bouquet is a great many. Flowers are sold all year round and everywhere. Creative people can purchase “components” - flowers, ribbons, wrapping paper and “construct” the composition themselves, and those who want to save time and please their beloved with an unusual bouquet will use the services of an online store.

Balloons for February 14
No less pleasant surprise - a bright heart-shaped balloon. Do not think that such a frivolous gift "to face" only young enthusiastic lovers. The older the donor, the more touching in his hands looks a quivering ball and a ball tearing into the sky. And a whole bunch, which can be launched together in the frosty sky and look at the flight under the clouds for a long time, will be a pleasant addition to the collection of memories of St. Valentine's Day.
History and holiday symbol
According to one of the versions - the most popular and considered the most faithful - the holiday got its name in honor of the early Christian martyr named Valentine. A simple priest secretly crowned lovers of boys and girls under the cover of night, because in those days Roman Emperor Claudius II issued an order - not to acquire families, so that young men who are not kept at home could better fight for the glory of Caesar.
Valentine's good deeds turned out to be a misfortune for him - he soon fell into a dungeon. In prison, the priest met and fell in love with the warden's daughter, Julia. Before the execution, which took place on February 14, he wrote her a sensual message, leaving a signature "Your Valentine".
Since then, on Valentine's Day, romantic people all over the world have presented each other with heart-shaped messages or cards decorated with images of hearts pierced by Cupid's arrows, which rightfully became a symbol of the holiday. By the way, in order to preserve anonymity (let the object of passion itself guess who sighs so desperately on it), you can sign a confession like this - "Your Valentine" ("Your Valentine", "Your Valentine").
We hope that our ideas and advice will color your holiday with bright emotions, remind two loving hearts of the miracle that happens to them every day, and those who have not yet found their soul mate will be given hope for the most important meeting.
Happy Valentine's Day - love and be loved!
