Date night ideas – Possibly the most popular way to commemorate this holiday is to go out on a date, whether with your partner or one of your single BFFs. Get creative and make suggestions that your readers can use, from Groupon vouchers for fun activities to romantic road trip itineraries, inspire your readers to try something different on this special day.
DIY Valentine’s gifts – Not everyone can afford to splurge on jewelry or fancy dinners so why not show your readers ways to create gifts from the heart. If crafting really isn’t your cup of tea, you can always turn to places like Etsy to recommend one-of-a-kind gifts that you can pretend you made 😉
Anti-Valentine’s Day content – Yep you read that right. Some people simply don’t enjoy the lovey dovey nature of the day. Maybe you’re one of them!
