Another February 14th is rolling around and you've done the candle-lit dinner routine about a thousand times. You can't just jet off to Rome while the kids are in bed upstairs, but there are a few things you can do to spice up your Valentine's Day.

1. Make a carpet picnic: If you're still burried in two feet of snow like most of the country, an outdoor picnic is out of the question. So, move it inside!
  • Spread out on a blanket and surround it with lots of candles.
  • Make a heart-shaped pizza or choose another heart-shaped treat.
  • Select a recipe from a cookbook that you have never tried. Shop for the ingredients and prepare together.
  • Don't forget the wine!
2. Play truth or dare: Challenge your spouse to a game of truth or dare. Use this online truth or dare tool to find exciting ideas ranging from G to X rated!

3. Lock lips: Try to set your own kissing record and see if you can beat it next year. The longest recorded kiss was 33 hours, set by two men! If you get tired, feed each other some chocolates.

4. Get romantic: Make a playlist of all the loves songs that remind you of each other and listen to it while relaxing in front of a fire. Go through this list together and see how many you know. Or, take turns reading the best Valentine's Day poems to each other.

If you planned ahead, register to have a star named after your partner and try to locate it together. Cliche? Maybe. Romantic anyway? Definitely.

5. Taste test: Gather samples from this list of aphrodisiac foods. Take turns blindfolding each other, feeding each other, and guessing what you're being fed. If the kids wake up and walk in on you, just tell them you were playing hide-and-go-seek!
