Let's start with dinner. Make reservations early this year. Use the open table website or smartphone app. It lets you find a restaurant near you, read reviews, select a table and make a reservation. Choose your neighborhood, pick your time. Check! You've got this year covered!
If a home cooked romantic dinner is your idea of how to celebrate the day, get the Valentine's day recipes app for the iPhone. It costs 99-cents and has 140 very special dinner-for-two recipes.
You have to send flowers or chocolate. Or both. That's a given. Try the free 1800 flowers website or smartphone app or the Proflowers app.
But my last tip. A special personalized valentine card from red stamp. These are elegant designs you can customize, even add your photos. Do it now, while there's time. The iPhone app is free, it costs $1.99 to print and mailout a card.
