Whether you and your significant other have been together for a lifetime or just a little while, make  Valentine's Day  absolutely unforgettable with one of these  fun activities . No matter what you and your beau decide to do, you'll both have the best time—because you're spending the day with each other.   1. Cook dinner together   A  special home-cooked meal  can be so much more romantic than going out to eat at a super busy restaurant. Even if one of you doesn't have chef-worthy skills, you can still make a  memorable dinner  you'll both enjoy.   2. Have a romantic movie marathon   Grab the popcorn and settle in on the couch for an evening filled with your favorite rom-coms. Need help choosing which flick to start with? We have a complete list of  Valentine's Day movies  ready to stream ASAP!   3. Exchange heartfelt gifts   No, February 14 doesn't have to be all about presents, but it is nice to give—and receive—a little token of affection. Consider  purchasing an item your loved one has always wanted ,  DIYing something special , or even just gifting a  homemade card .   4. Make heart-shaped food   Pizza,  strawberry pie ,  eggs in a basket ,  cupcakes ... your imagination's the limit on this one. Up the romance factor by making finger foods ( heart-shaped mini quiches , anyone?) and feeding them to each other.   5. Play hooky   Take the day off from work and enjoy some R&R. Have breakfast in bed, do a crossword together, and go see a matinee movie. Reminisce about how and why you two first fell in love.   6. Get to know each other better over a bottle of wine   Once the booze is flowing, ask each other these  36 questions scientifically proven to break intimacy barriers . Some you may already know the answer to ("How's your relationship with your mother?") while others are hypotheticals you've likely never posed ("If you could wake up tomorrow having gained one quality or ability, what would it be?").   7. Write love letters to each other   If you've never done it before, now's the time to put in writing why your partner is so special to you. Tell them which of their qualities you most admire, how they make you feel, and why you fell in love with them. Get inspired by these  famous love letters throughout history .   8. Recreate one of your favorite dates   Maybe it's the  drive-in  where you first kissed or the  restaurant  where you celebrated becoming homeowners—pick a place that's special to your history as a couple and go back.   9. Take a class together   Is there a skill you both want to brush up on? Learning something new together is a great way to bond. Try a cooking class, dance lesson, or golf clinic, or visit  CourseHorse.com  for more ideas.   10. Send your partner on a treasure hunt   If gift-giving is your love language, send your significant other on a scavenger hunt dotted with trails of rose petals and handwritten clues to find their  Valentine's Day present . For ideas, check out  Pinterest .
