This February 14, think outside the box of chocolates and treat him or her to a creative surprise. Here are six unexpected ideas to help you set those sparks flying. Go on, we can keep a secret.

And once you’re full of Valentine’s Day inspiration, scroll to the bottom for your chance to win movie tickets!

1. RELIVE THE FIRST DATE FIREWORKS

These days you’re a match made in heaven, but once upon a time you were strangers getting to know each other. Take your Valentine on a romantic walk down memory lane, re-enacting all the magical moments from your first date along the way. If it was a summer picnic, throw a packed lunch into the back of your Hyundai and drive to where it all began. If it was a casual evening at a small bar, reserve a table in the corner and order a bottle of bubbly. Let the honeymoon phase roll on.

2. SING IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT

Everybody has a favourite song, but not everybody has the chance to enjoy their loved one performing it live and exclusive in the living room! Create your very own stage, seat your biggest fan in the front row, and sing your heart out. If you need a little help channeling your inner Beatles, Beyoncé, or Bruce ‘The Boss’ Springsteen, you’ll find a karaoke version of most well-known tunes on YouTube.

3. TRY THE ART OF SEDUCTION

Remember Leo DiCaprio seductively drawing Kate Winslet in Titanic? That could be you – minus the sinking ship of course. Create a modern masterpiece of your muse on canvas, or direct a stylish photography session to make them feel like a star. Not exactly Rembrandt? Don't worry, by this stage your beau is probably aware of your artistic limitations. And besides, it’s always the thought that counts.

4. GO BACK TO THE FUCHSIA

It’s true that a red rose symbolises love and desire, but as a romantic gesture it’s grown old and weary. Mix things up with some dynamic floral arrangements, like freesias’ graceful yellows or an elegant white orchid, to brighten your loved one’s day. Beautifully potted plants also make a great present for the gorgeous gardener in your life.

5. FOLLOW THE RECIPE FOR LOVE

It’s hard to resist the temptation of food, glorious food. Well, imagine your partner’s delight when you serve a delicious homemade meal featuring their favourite dish. It’s not as scary as it sounds. Many restaurants have made life easier by sharing their culinary secrets in cookbooks, so all you have to do is buy the ingredients and follow the recipe. With a bit of sneaky practice, you’ll be ready to cook up a storm.

6. LEAP OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE

Since you probably don’t share all your partner’s interests, daring to try something different just might be the best gift of all. Whether it’s dance lessons, skydiving or a spa retreat that tickles their fancy, treat the two of you to a new experience together. Who knows, you might realise you have even more in common than you thought.
