Valentine's Day

I don't usually enjoy Valentine's Day even though I have a wonderful Valentine with whom to share it. This year I am loving the simplistic approach to the holiday. Most everyone seems to be on a tight budget and it's the thought that counts...the little things. Here are some ideas to celebrate without breaking the bank.

Have a date at home. Cook your partner's favorite meal. I'm making filet mignon. Set them up a bubble bath. (L'Occitane and Bath & Body Works are having a sale on candles. B&BW is also having a sale on bubble bath, and Valentine's Day Accessories. Heart Pumice, $3).

Rent a movie. My favorites include:You've Got Mail, Moonstruck, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, Love Actually (Christmas-y, but it works), Serendipity, The Notebook, and Sweet Home Alabama. For something sexy: Don Juan de Marco, and something classic: Romeo and Juliet (1968). If you need music to set the tone of the evening, I love the music from the soundtrack of The Wedding Date.

A nice inscribed book perhaps? A new pair of pajama pants (Gap, $19.50). You don't need to go overboard to do something thoughtful.

Want a night out? Catch a movie, go roller-or ice-skating, go to a museum...

Single or attached I hope you have a Happy Valentine's Day!
