Stuck for an original Valentine's Day treat for your special someone? Think outside the square.

Candlelit Dinner? Boring.
Flowers? Ditto.
Chocolates? Great, but she'll eat them all and then hate you

So what to do? How about cooking a meal together? If you're both handy in the kitchen you'll enjoy bonding over sizzling sauces and tantalising ingredients. If only one of you knows your way around a kitchen, you might have fun overcoming the challenge. And one of you can show off.

Valentine's Day falls on a weekday this year, so many of you will be turning on the romantic vibe after work. At the end of a long week. Um, will you have any mojo left? If in doubt try a movie. A cinema date still rates well, even in the age of watching movies at home, on your phone and underwater.

And you can sit in the cinema in silence, holding hands and eating choc tops. Like you did when you were a teenager. And, no-one will know if you fall asleep.

Or you might take a more masculine view of the whole affair, making the most romantic day of the year a celebration of all things manly. Less sop and more brawn, so to speak. Think steak and beer at your local pub, pizza and beer in front of the TV or just beer.

Lastly, you might just do what you do ever other day, because every day is a celebration of your love. Walk the dog, watch The Block, read in bed or play with the kids. Just make sure you do it together.
