Want to make a splash this Valentine's Day? Bored with over-priced flowers and boring candle-lit dinners? This Valentine's Day falls on a Saturday, so make a day of it and woo someone special with an unforgettable experience.

1. Sydney Seaplanes Fly & Dine .The best of both worlds - still having a romantic meal in a stunning setting, but the surprise of flying there and back. Perfect if you really want to make it a special day, or have a proposal in mind.

2. Hire a boat and picnic on a secluded beach. A beautiful way to spend a relaxing, romantic day. Putter around the beautiful Sydney waterways and then stop at a little beach for a picnic.

3. Take a boat to lunch, be it the ferry to Hugo's or a day trip to Ettalong. Enjoy some stunning scenery before an intimate lunch a deux.

4. Go for an electric bike tour together. The electric part of the bike means you don't have to be that fit, and you won't get tired. See the beauty of the city on two wheels, then grab lunch in the city.

5. Wow them with an unusual sweet treat. Kakawa has a great range and the ice cream sandwiches are amazing and won't break the bank.

6. Have a night away - from the Sport & Rec Camp in Broken Bay (enjoy bush and bonfires on the beach), The YHA in Pittwater for some kayaking and bush walks at sunrise or the five star hotels in the Blue Mountains. Any escape is a delight!

7. Can't afford a night away - book in for a swim at The Langham. Feel like a star for a few hours, while you lounge by the pool.

8. Picnic in a park - no need to spend a fortune, pack a lovely lunch (or early dinner) and head to a park you've never visited before. My picks would be Fagan Park, Woolwich Dock & Parklands or Pirrama in Pyrmont.

Nothing more romantic!

9.Go for a drive or bushwalk. A day trip to Bundeena or the beautiful Grand Pacific Drive will be filled with romance, with great views along the way, even if you have to bring your kids.

10. Stay home, and make that special. The real romance is not in what you spend, but the effort you make to show you care. Remember, a sunset is always free.

Happy Valentine's Day.
