There is always a place that you want to visit. Walk through its lanes, discover the art, and watch the sunset at the end of the trip. So what are you waiting for?

Renew Your Vows
This one Valentine's Day idea is specifically meant for the married couples. Renew those vows you made to each other this 14th of February. If you were in love with him/her to get married then, in that case now is the time to fall in love all over again. Renew your vows on a cruise ship or at a top-of-line hotel, with your children, friends, and relatives. If you are not married, don't be dismayed. Propose to the love of your love now. What could be a better time than this to say 'I love you'.
This is my favorite. Cook him the most romantic dinner with an abundance of aphrodisiacs. Open a bottle of fine wine and savor it over a candlelit dinner, beneath the starry sky. Enjoy every bit of the meal in each others company, which is priceless. Do I really need to tell you, what happens after dinner under the effects of wine??!!?? Go get some passionate action, people!
Take Things A Step Forward
If you are in a stage where things are not exactly casual anymore and yet the time is not right to propose marriage right away, then you can do this as a couple. Get yourselves a pet. Share the custody of the cat or dog as a couple. This step will indicate that things are definitely moving steadily ahead, but there is no pressure to rush into lifelong commitments just yet. Taking care of an animal will let the two of you know how good you guys are at sharing responsibilities and instill trust and faith in each other. However, please understand that adopting pets is a matter of seriousness and not something to be done out a day's passionate whimsy. Do not do this if you are not sure whether you really want something serious and for keeps with this particular person.
A Day of Pure Romance
Since you are a couple, demanding lives leave little room for romance. Take a day off your busy lives and spend the day with each other. Wake up with your love by your side. Sip the early morning tea in the garden, while you are cuddled up in a warm fuzzy blanket. Let some passionate romance heat up between you two. Cook some exotic lunch together, as the noon gets dirty every minute. As the dawn turns to dusk, make most of every breathing moment on this Valentine's Day.
I hope these ideas for Valentine's Day reignite the romance in your life and make your bond stronger and forever! Happy Valentine's Day!
