A lot of people dread Valentine’s Day not because they don’t love celebrating their special relationships; but because they hate all the clichés that go along with this holiday.

by Paula Hines

There are preconceived notions about what Valentine’s Day should be like, and if you have any ounce of individuality, it’s enough to make you want to skip it altogether. But Valentine’s Day can be fun and romantic if you choose to celebrate in an unconventional way.

If you’re looking for creative valentine ideas, the first thing you should do is throw all the silly traditional ideas out the window. Concentrate as much as possible on the two of you and ask yourself what makes you unique as a couple. Not every couple fits into the red-hearts-and-champagne mold. If your idea of a good time is a weekend camping trip then don’t let anyone tell you that it’s not romantic. As long as you are doing what you both love, spending time alone together, it is going to be romantic.

Another creative Valentine idea is to make something with your own special skills. The jewelry industry wants you to think that the only acceptable Valentine’s gift is a pair of diamond earrings—but if you’re into wood working, why not make a beautiful one-of-a-kind gift she can keep forever? Whatever your individual talents, you are sure to delight your lover if you are able to create something especially for them.

If the insanity of going out on Valentine’s Day with all the other love zombies makes you want to tear out your hair, try celebrating the day after. Who says Valentine’s Day can only be celebrated on February 14? Love knows know rules! Go the night after and you’ll have no need for a reservation, no over-priced nonsense, and no crowds to bother you while you’re enjoying one another’s company.

Finally, some of the best creative Valentines ideas involve the great outdoors. Why go to crowded restaurants or movie theaters where there are so many other beautiful locations? If you live in the south, you can picnic outside even in February. If you live in a snowy weather, a day on the slopes or cross-country skiing followed by a bottle of wine by the fire is a great way to celebrate. Getting out in the natural world amidst the fresh air and moonlight is a wonderful, exhilarating way to spend a special day of romance with your lover.

Regardless of how you choose to spend this holiday, think outside the box when you come up with creative Valentine’s ideas; and make it a day that you’ll remember for years to come.
