A Trip to the Candy Store
Valentine's is all about sweetness. Get your sweets on by going to a boutique candy store. Buy treats for each other, trying new flavors and candies you haven't tried before. Not candy lover? Choose ice cream sundaes at your favorite local place instead.

Anticipation is Half the Fun
At the start of the day, give your sweetheart a love note detailing all the things you will do to them when they get home. Throughout send them text messages counting down the hours until sexy time. It would be best if you tried to keep the messages safe for work! No need to get anyone fired.
Head to an Escape Room
Escape rooms have made it to a city near you! You can do one that's silly and light, or challenge yourselves with an escape room that will keep you guessing with twists and turns. The important thing is that you tackle it together.
