V-Day Special: 3 easy steps to turn the day of romantic expectations into a one-of-a-kind romantic interlude

With Valentine's Day fast approaching you can already feel the presence of the RED wave on our streets as florists are stocking up on all those red roses. Chocolate parlors are bringing out their best packaging and heart candies.

Many will be searching for new, creative date ideas and gifts to surprise their special someone, but what do you do when the choices are so many and the options so overwhelming? Here are a few tips on how to make the memory of this V-Day especially unique.

According to Elitsa Manolo, a recognized expert on romance and owner of The Perfect Date, one of the most important parts of your V-Night is the element of surprise. "Stay away from red colors, cinnamon heart candies and teddy bears as they’re completely overrated and played out,” she says.

Select white flowers with a hint of purple instead; or light purple/pink macaroons; and if you really want to add a cute toy, pick something corky and make it your V-Day mascot—like a cute penguin, or piglet from "Winnie the Pooh."

Flowers are a great introductory gift, but no matter how beautiful a bouquet is they always end up dying. How about a beautiful orchid or "anturium" plant (also known as flamingo flower) with a note that says "our love is meant to grow." May be a bit too sweet for some people’s tastes, but nevertheless, it’s interesting and unique.

If dinner at a restaurant is on your list of V-Day activities it might be worthwhile to do some research on all the new, cool and unique places in the city. Picking out a place that is trendy, funky, and different translates into fun, and will guarantee you a memorable experience.

Valentine's Day is a day you make an extra effort to show your love and gratitude for the time you’ve had together. So go ahead and treat each other to a nice time at a spa, go to a wine tasting, share a laughter at a comedy club.

If your schedule doesn’t permit enough time to plan a fun and romantic itinerary, confide in a romantic event planner. Visit The Perfect for more details. No matter what, don't be afraid to put on your creative hats and turn this Valentine's Day into a memory that will be treasured for years to come.
