Valentine’s should be a breath of fresh air to all your loved ones. It’s the perfect excuse to gather, to connect, to surprise. Treat it as a golden opportunity to say, "I love you," "I like you," "I appreciate you"—or at the very least, it's a chance to stock up on boatloads of discounted chocolate on February 15...that ought to tide you over until Easter.

Welcome an opportunity to be creative, active and unique. If you’re looking for more than a dinner and movie dates, cards and heart-shaped chocolate boxes, simply step outside your door. (Probably grab your coat, the car keys and a couple of bucks----ooooh, don’t forget to pack the chocolate!)
