#1: Flowers

We know, we know.  It’s a little cliché.  But the truth is, most people do actually enjoy getting flowers.  Don’t be afraid to think outside of the red-rose box, though.  Does your Valentine have a favorite color?  Choose a flower that matches.  Want to say something specific?  Use this guide to pick flowers with the perfect meaning.

#2: Ice Cream

A heart-shaped box of chocolates may be traditional, but how about thinking outside the box this Valentine’s Day with your love’s favorite frozen treat?  Whether you buy a pint of your Valentine’s favorite ice cream or take him or her to one of the best ice cream shops in Kansas City , your Valentine is sure to enjoy the braces-friendly treat — as well as your thoughtfulness!

#3: Choose Your Own Adventure

If you really want to make an impression, let your Valentine choose!  Take several envelopes and put different options for activities and/or meals, and tell your Valentine to pick an envelope for each!  The best part is you can save the envelopes not chosen for a different date night — Valentine’s Day Part Two!
