Wine Tasting

Drinking some new kinds of wine together is the perfect Valentine's Day date. You just have to find a nice winery out in the country near your house where you can go tasting together.

It's the perfect day and nothing is more romantic than a walk around a vineyard out in the countryside.

Take a lesson together

It's thoughtful, sweet and it shows that you really listen to what your partner wants.

      Date at home is sweet for us. He gives me roses, and I give him a heart shaped tin, of his favorite, dark chocolate covered cherries. We exchange Valentine cards, sweetheart sentiments, then get on our computers. 25 years of Valentine Cards, and we still have every one.

      The couple massage is a great idea. Maybe we could try that some other time.

      You have such wonderful ideas for making Valentine's Day special and you sure are up my alley with the camping trip. Your hot balloon idea is something I wouldn't have thought of but what a memory to create. A massage is always the perfect gift!
