A night out, a dozen roses, , a —these are all expected of you on this special holiday, men.
Spice things up a bit this year and make a special playlist to play in the background of a dinner at home or the drive to the restaurant.
Go old school, burn the playlist to a CD and wrap it up as a gift so your special someone has something she can pop in while she's driving to work the next day.
Sure, it's a great idea you say, but what songs are going to win the heart of your Valentine?
Take a moment and think, guys. What songs have a special meaning to your relationship?
Does she have brown eyes (yes, you should know the answer to this question), then "Brown Eyed Girl," by Van Morrison is a no-brainer.
If your loved one is a Michael Buble fan, add "Everything."
"I Swear," by All 4 One is also guaranteed to bring back some memories for your sweetie.
