Care to venture a Valentine's Day done differently? Or maybe you're just V-curious. Then follow me into a V-Day Wonderland...
1. V-Day breakfast might seem like a great idea the night before but pre-brunch plans hurt sleep-ins. It's true. In Australia, we're lucky that V-Day falls on a Sunday this year (I just looked it up). To love yourself is to stay in bed longer than you can on a work day.
If you're a couple and have kids at home a) e.g. get the grandparents to take the kids the night before and keep them for the day or b) Haven't got sitters on hand? This is the perfect opportunity for whoever's forgotten it's V-Day to keep the kids out of the bedroom and let your Valentine sleep in (cost-free). This will also get you laid later.
2. Spend a day at the beach (after you sleep in).
Get a hot stone massage. Get your partner one. Get a couples one. It doesn't matter which one it is.
Play with a kitten. Obviously this applies to puppies and other furry pets.
