Forget roses, chocolates and soppy supermarket cards. Make this Valentines' Day extra special with these 'Top 10 Ways to Show You Care'.
10. Write a Poem
Roses are red,
violets are blue,
You make me happy
And I love you
9. Hide a love note
Put a small love letter in their lunch box, inside their phone cover, or in their car, as a surprise on Valentines' Day morning
8. Create a scavenger hunt
Write clues and hide them around the house for your loved one to follow - the final clue may invite them to dinner or to an evening out
7. Watch the Sun Set
Sit together on the sand, soak up the beautiful colours and watch as the sun slowly sinks below the horizon
6. Find a fireplace
There's nothing quite like sitting in front of a roaring fire, sharing a drink and catching up
5. Cook together
Spending time together in the kitchen can be super romantic, prepping and tasting the dish as you go
4. Build a fort
You may not be a child anymore, but this requires teamwork and creativity and is also great fun. Plus you have a cosy den to share when you're finished
3. Turn off the power
There's a reason the birth rate spikes during power cuts - no smart phones, no Netflix - just each other
2. Break a record
It doesn't need to be crossing the North Pole. Why not try and break the record for "Most M&Ms eaten in 1 minute, blindfolded, using chopsticks" or "Farthest distance to blow a pea"? Much more achievable.
1. Stay by the sea
Treat yourself to a stay in a luxury apartment overlooking the ocean. Get away from the chores at home, escape the to-do list and reconnect with your partner.
