screw the chocolate + flowers

Call me the killer of romance but flowers and chocolate do nothing for me on Valentines day (and every other day for that matter). It feels like a waste of money, so for what it would cost to get dinner, flowers delivered and chocolate, I have a few suggestions:

spa time: a massage, facial, mani/pedi, anything to just Β relax and take care of myself. This is SO much better than any kind of chocolate or flowers (to me).

personalized jewelry: I am obviously partial to stella and dot, not just because I am a stylist, but because I honestly think they are killing it in this area!

monthly wine subscription from bright cellars: the gift that keeps on giving, I like this idea because each month you are set up for a date night in to taste the wines etc. You select options through a quiz based on your taste preferences, then algorithm developed by two MIT grads determines what wines to send you + it gets better each month as you rate the wines you get. Its the pandora of wine, you can select that you want more like this or skip to the next song/bottle.
