For most of us, the thought of Valentine's Day sends shivers up the spine. There is a lot of pressure to buy the right gift, say the right thing and pick the right restaurant. If you do a great job, you look like a "hero" and your significant other will remember the night for years to come. If you blow it, it could send your relationship in the wrong direction. After all, can't you express your love the right way on just one day?

People malign Valentine's Day as a greeting card created holiday. They may be right but it is what it is. Neglect it and use the argument that it is "just another day," and you may find yourself looking for a new love. The right mindset is to have a little fun with his romantic holiday. You don't have to spend a fortune, but you do need to put in the time to offer a creative, thoughtful and unique gift that your loved one will truly treasure.

Here are a few ideas for a fantastic Valentine's Day:

- Prepare a gourmet dinner at home (their favorite foods). Add a nicely decorated table (linens, champagne glasses, flowers), candlelight and some soft music to help set the mood. Offer a gift at the table as an added surprise. - Show up at their job with flowers in hand and a romantic poem (anyone can call a florist and have flowers delivered -- do the job yourself). - Decorate your bedroom at home so that when they come home you can have your own little romantic getaway. Use candles, rose petals, chocolate kisses, and romantic music. With Valentine's Day on a Wednesday this year, this is the best bet for a getaway (and also less expensive than a hotel room). - If you can, surprise them with a little getaway at a local hotel for a romantic rendesvous.

No matter how much your gift cost, the most important thing is to put some time and effort into Valentine's Day. After all, it is a celebration of your love.
