Valentine’s Day has gotten a bad reputation as of late, and I think it might be due in large part of the industry trying to capitalize on it!! I like to remember Valentine’s Day for the fun time in elementary school where you’d get to share a cute card with your secret crush.  Long gone are the days of writing a sweet “Roses are Red” poem to your love, but now we worry about finding the perfect Hallmark card and over the top gift to say it for us (not that there’s anything wrong with that!), instead of writing it in our own words.

I’m hoping to bring back those early years with a little simplicity this year and make some good memories with your loved one instead of waiting for someone else to make the memory for you! There are so many fun ways to enjoy the day and night without having to break the bank or worry about fancy gifts for one another! Plus, you’re going to need some important time away from wedding planning together in the coming months. Below are some fun Valentine’s Day date ideas to keep the day new and exciting!

Part of getting married involves getting showered with gifts — whether you like it or not! Your guests not only are excited to celebrate with you, but they also want to get you something meaningful that you’ll be able to use in your marriage.

But those days are past — and it’s time to embrace unique registry gift ideas.
