|Get a date!|
Ok, we assume you have already done this, but if you have NOT, you'd better get to asking! Yes, NOW!
|Start by planning dinner.|
If you are making dinner then plan your menu. If you are planning to go out to dinner then choose the restaurant and make the reservations. Wait to the last minute and you'll be eating you romantic dinner at the local fast food joint.
|Choose a wine.|
If you are making dinner then this is imperative. (Hint: Check out our wine guide) If you are dining out then at least read up on ordering wine in a restaurant. You want to impress your date don't you?
|Plan your after dinner activities.|
Dinner is great but what next? If you really want to make it special you might consider planning more than just heading home for some nookie. The evening is still young and there will plenty of time for that later!
|If you have kids, arrange for a sitter.|
Kids are great but do you really want to take them with you? We thought not...
|Get a gift.|
And a card. And flowers would be nice, too. No last minute junk. Put some thought into it!
|Plan your outfit|
If you are planning on purchasing something new, start shopping. If not, make sure that dress or suit gets to the cleaners. Make sure you have all necessary accessories as well.
|Get some sexy skivvies!|
Perhaps the best part of valentines day, lingerie can definitely spice up the occasion. You can wear it too, guys. Trade in thosecotton briefs for a sexy pair of silk boxers.
There's nothing worse than showing up for dinner and the restaurant has lost your reservation. While it is rare,accidents can happen. It never hurts to call and make sure everything's in order for your special evening.
