Do something extra to make it look even nicer, such as adding paint protection, tinting the windows, or getting windshield protection.

8. Candlelit Dinner


Tell your hubby you are going to make Valentine’s Day reservations at a diner, but instead of doing that, set up a candlelit dinner at home. Line the way from your door to the dining table with flower petals, preferably rose petals. Light tall, red candlesticks on the table and dim the lights. Arrange for some bubbly with dinner. If you don’t feel like cooking, there’s no shame in ordering a nice dinner. You can still spend some quality time with him and make it special.
