It’s time to start thinking about Valentine’s Day. Instead of running to the store after work on February 14 – plan ahead and WOW your Valentine this year.

Read these top 5 tips to be a Valentine hero.

No more chocolate.

It’s hard to resist those heart-shaped boxes of chocolate and cinnamon hearts. Help your Valentine keep their New Year’s resolutionSkip the candy and go for something different – like a coffee date or a trip to a smoothie-shop.

Vday tulips

Roses are red, tulips are..

All flowers are great, so why not show some love to daisies, tulips, or lilies.

WU Cupid Tip:  For the younger crowd, send the flowers to work or school – everyone will love to see them! For the over 30 crowd, have the flowers sent home a day ahead – the early surprise will be much appreciated.

Vday little girl

 Valentine’s family party.

Get your red on, and organize a family party at home. Ask the kids to decorate and have everyone dress in red. An easy spaghetti dinner and sundaes with strawberries will make a memorable Feb. 14.

Friday gym date.

How many of us are paying for the gym, but not going as often as we like? Avoid the Valentine Day’s restaurant crowd, and hit the gym (or bike ride, or walk in the park), with your Valentine.

Your single friends.

Remember your single friends, Aunt Susan, or Grandma.  Send money with Western Union and treat them to dinner and a movie. This thoughtful gift will make someone’s day – especially on Valentine’s Day.

WU Cupid Tip: Send a special surprise to any of your friends – everyone loves a free meal (and no dishes)!

Valentine’s Day is Friday, February 14, so take a few minutes to start thinking of how you can make this year great.
