This year, go beyond the traditional 'red rose' and take your partner for a romantic walk in a garden of beautiful flowers. Imagine walking hand-in-hand through a nursery, taking in the smell of real flowers. Also, let’s not forget the silence that comes with being in a nursery. Most nurseries today have adjacent cafes for you to sip on hot chocolate and cookies while staring into your partner’s eyes.(Unsplash)

Treat Bae to a romantic picnic: With the weather warming up, now is the perfect opportunity to grab your boo and head outside for a Pinterest-worthy picnic. What is more romantic than sitting side-by-side with your bae, laughing and enjoying the sunrise/sunset while munching on delish treats and playing board games? If going out isn't an option, turn your living room or bedroom into a picnic spot by building a tent out of bed sheets, munching on snacks and watching a movie together.(Pexels)


Jalebi Baby: Cafe dates are overdone and overcrowded on V-Day. Instead, we suggest taking your bae to your favourite sweet shop andgorging on yummy Jalebis and Samosa, just like our parents did back in the day. Ride around rickshaws through the bylanes of your galli and channel your inner Siddharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani.(Raj K Raj)

A purrfect-pawsome date: Pets sense the goodness in people better than humans do, so how about taking your pet on your date too? Switch it up with a pet-friendly restaurant/cafe or even better, a dog park - there's nothing like a bunch of unruly doggos to put your relationship through the wringer. These are also great options if you or your bae don't want to leave their furry best friend at home on V- Day. Your pet may find their furry match too. After all, why should hoomans have all the fun?(Katie Wallace on Unsplash)
