    I voted EAT OUT! 

    My FI would much prefer to eat out and try a new restaurant than have me cook for him at home. 

    FACT: I can’t cook at all. He does all the cooking @ home.

    SO! Taking him out to a gorgeous restaurant, making reservations, and doing something cute afterwards would totally be his cup of tea!

    On the other hand, if it was MY birthday- I’d also prefer to be taken out. I like when he takes me to fancy restaurants and I like to try things I’ve never tried before!

    @braverbeating:  My SO usually takes me out to eat and then that day or that night I tell him to pick out a dessert (cake, cookies, brownies, cupcakes) that he would like to try. I make it and add some valentines spark to it. Sprinkle them with pink sugar, put some valentines themed candies on them or something like that. He loves red velvet desserts or cheese cake so I try to get him to stick to something amongst those lines of desserts. We then watch a movie while he eats the dessert I made him. Last year a made him a cheesecake and dipped strawberries in chocolate and put the strawberries on top of the cheesecake. He loved it! Hope this helps!

    I voted stay home! We do this every year with steaks, bacon-wrapped scallops, a dessert and a bottle (or 3) of wine — I find it very romantic when it’s just the two of us instead of everyone and their beau crowding a restaurant with an hour or more wait time. Not to mention Valentine’s Day is on a Friday this year, so probably restaurants will be even more crowded. It might be just me, but I hate being in a space with a lot of people!

    Also, I think for the steaks, scallops, little dessert and LOTS of wine, we maybe drop $80 — and that’s all from Whole Foods. At a restaurant, we wouldn’t be so lucky, hehe.

    Even when I celebrated the holiday, I refused to eat out on V Day.  I did it twice and both times were a disaster.  One year I made the mistake of not making reservations so we didn’t eat until after 9pm.  Another year I made the wise decision to make reservations but sitting elbow to elbow with a hundred other couples in a room is less than romantic, especially when you’re paying $100 each for it.

    If you’re going to go out be smart and make reservations for the weekend before Valentine’s and surprise him.
