We’re just a few weeks away from February 14, which can be both exciting and a little nerve-wracking as you try to decide what to do for Valentine’s Day. First of all, take a deep breath! This is a day for flirty fun, not a day to stress yourself out!
The thing is you can basically do just about anything on Valentine’s Day and have it be awesome. It’s all about just trying to have fun and bond with that special someone.
Whether you’re planning on doing something with your crush or you are part of an established duo, we’ve come up with 10 ways to celebrate the holiday in super fun style!
Cook Dinner TogetherYou can skip making reservations at a busy restaurant this year. Instead, make dinner together at home! It's a great way to see what the other person likes and to get a little creative. Plus, there's always dinner conversation to look forward to! Source: Shutterstock.com
Or Better Yet... Dessert!As much as I love dinner, I love dessert more. If both of you have a sweet tooth, bake something to celebrate the holiday. Those heart-shaped cookies are looking pretttyyyy good right about now. Source: Shutterstock.com
Play CandylandValentine's Day rules in terms of the sweetest candy (Halloween is just a little too scary!). Stay in the toasty indoors and get nostalgic by playing a round of the ultimate candy game: Candyland! Seriously, you'll remember how much you loved it, and it'll be even better playing while you're snacking on actual candy alongside your crush! Source: Flickr; user: daveparker
Be A (Kinda) Secret AdmirerYour note can be sweet or funny, but just make it clear you think your crush is awesome! Slip it in your crush's locker or bag, but be sure to 'fess up soon that you are the mystery admirer. Hey, you want to get the credit for being super sweet! Source: Shutterstock.com
Get RecordingNot into writing? Instead of giving me a card, I had a BF once make me an audio recording saying how he thought I was cool. It was super sweet, and I could keep the recording on my iPod if I ever needed a boost. You can do something more emotional like writing an original song, or you can keep it goofy with a silly lip sync video that you post on Facebook. Either way, it is something that could be a little more lasting than just a card. Source: Shutterstock.com
Decorate It UpGet a little sneaky and do a surprise decoration sesh! Whether it's putting some red streamers inside your crush's locker or leaving some fun balloons outside your crush's door, those little festive decorations are a way to show off your spontaneous and fun-loving side while celebrating the holiday.

Make A Scavenger HuntIt doesn't have to be anything too elaborate, but put together some clues and riddles for your crush that lead to somewhere special. You can tie in any inside jokes you may have or just include places that remind you of your crush. Better yet, have your crush make one for you too! To make things easier, you can agree on the ending place first, but at least you can share your adventures once you both meet up. Source: Shutterstock.com
Be A Snow CoupleIn my opinion, you should never pass up a chance for a snow-related date. Challenge each other to make a snowman version of the other person so you can have an awesome snow couple hanging out on your lawn (that's almost as cute as the two of you!). Source: Shutterstock.com
Go Ice SkatingWhile it can be an outdoor activity, most places have an indoor skating rink nearby. Ice skating lets you have plenty of time to talk while getting a little more active. Plus, hand holding! Source: Shutterstock.com
Laser TagWant to get a lot more active than just skating? Gather up some of your other couple friends for an action-packed round of laser tag. You and your crush can prove how awesome the two of your are as a team! Source: Shutterstock.com
