5 Dinner Ideas for You and Your Sweetie


Valentine’s Day is right around the corner.

Guys are rushing to stores grabbing the biggest box of chocolates they can find, girls are gabbing about dinner plans, and florists are making a killing on red roses.

In all its frills, sometimes we overlook why we celebrate Valentine’s Day (and no, we’re not going to lecture you on the folklore). Our point here is that you can show that special someone you care without slicing your wallet in half.

In fact, the majority of people enjoy something a bit more personalized. So get our your “kiss the cook" apron and fire up the stovetop, it’s time to spoil your loved one with a cozy night in.

Here are 5 dinner dates themes (and menus) to try that are sure to make the evening a success!
