Valentine’s Day is the most romantic night of the year and Clinton’s here to make sure you don’t make any small blunders that could ruin the evening. Get a New Gift
Sure, chocolate and flowers are nice, but they don't exactly say you've put a ton of thought into your gift. To really make an impact, think of something that symbolizes your relationship.
For example, if she’s always wanted to amp up her baking skills, surprise her with a gift certificate to a baking class. Or download a cookie recipe and buy her all the ingredients to get started.
If money's tight, put your crafting skills to work. Even a small homemade card says more than a big box of drugstore chocolate. Or even write a heartfelt haiku! You remember those: 5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables. Bigger Isn't Always Better
Don’t go overboard with someone you’ve been seeing for just a short time. The best way to scare away someone great is to throw overly romantic gifts at them. If you've been seeing someone for 6 months or less, play it cool.
Gifts don’t even need to be exchanged early in a relationship. You're better off making a fun memory together than awkwardly exchanging presents. See a movie or a comedy show. Go bowling. Grab a burger.
And if anyone you barely know tells you they can't live without you ... Run, forrest, run!Dress Cute!
This tip goes for every holiday literal dressing is not so chic. The idea is to look cute, not like an actual valentine.
Head-to-toe bling rarely works, unless you're performing at the Grammys. The key to great style is moderation. Also, the color red always makes a big impact, so choose one pop of red per outfit – a red clutch, red belt, or red lip will do the trick. Not all three.Get an Appropriate Gift
Lingerie is a great gift, but opening it in the middle of a crowded restaurant isn’t comfortable for anyone. Save the naughty stuff for behind closed doors. Give her a g-rated gift at the table.
Also, just because it’s Valentine’s Day, doesn’t mean you have to get her sexy lingerie. Think of other things that’ll make her feel sexy, like perfume or a bottle of her favorite champagne.No Valentine? No Big Deal!
So, you don't have a valentine this year. Who cares! Don't wallow in self-pity alone -- do it with your other single friends. There's nothing more fun than an impromptu “I hate Valentine’s Day” party. Have a few drinks, some apps, and talk about how miserable all your coupled friends probably are!
