As pink and red hues start permeating through restaurants and malls, and the scent of freshly cut roses hangs in the air, we realize that it’s that time of year again. A time when a boy finally musters up the courage to ask a girl to be his for the day, a father buys bouquets for his daughter, and love triumphs. To be a part of this hallmark card celebration here are 10 fun things to do on Valentines Day:
1. Have a baking session:
One of the best things about Valentine’s Day is the mouth watering desserts that are created to fill everyone’s mouth (and hearts) with “sweetness” for the day. Here’s a recipe on how to bake the perfectly delicious Red Velvet Cupcakes:

-1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
-1 teaspoon baking soda

With dinner prices skyrocketing during Valentine’s day, one great alternative is to cuddle in front of the TV with a steaming mug of swiss miss hot chocolate and watch one chick-flick after another. The hot chocolate warms the body and the romantic movies warm the heart.
A billion people give a bouquet of flowers during Valentine’s day. Who wants to be the same as everyone else? This Valentine’s, be unique and make a balloon bouquet instead! It’s bigger, cheaper and lasts much longer than real flowers!
Today is the day everyone is allowed to eat their hearts out with chocolate! Whether it’s pancakes with lots of chocolate drizzle for breakfast, a choco cupcake for dessert after lunch, a chocolate frappuccino as an afternoon delight, a chocolate sundae after dinner, a nice hot chocolate for a nightcap, or all the above, you know what they say- forget love, I’d rather fall in love with chocolate.
Huggable stuffed animals are the best and its even better when its made just for you! Add that personal touch by choosing the toy’s clothes, props and most important of all, the special Birth Certificate!
