ProFlowers.com listed this suggestion, and we have to agree: You can’t go wrong with a beach date.
The best part is that you can wait until almost the very last hour and still have a fantastic memorable experience.
First, don’t forget the lei or roses as a Valentine’s Day flower gift for your love. Second, set up the beach blanket with flickering candles beforehand. Third, get some good bottles of wine, and grab some hoity-toity fancy cheese and crackers. Don’t forget the grapes and strawberries to pair with the wine and cheese.
Fourth, find the perfect romantic beach picnic spot, add in a nighttime swim or a couples massage in the sand. Many hotels and spas in Waikiki offer beach side spa services.
