ONE WEEK until Valentine's Day! Feel like the walls are closing in and you're coming up short with ideas? Fret not! We've got the lowkey V-Day tips* that go above and beyond the classic traditions that you're used to.
*Not just Valentine's Day tips! (Especially number 1!)
1. SHE COMES FIRST.
Yes, when it comes to holding the door open.
Yes, when it comes to ordering your food at a restaurant.
Yes, when it comes to basically whatever comes to mind.
Most importantly, when it comes to actually COMING.*
That is all.

2. Don't ask her what she wants to do for Valentine's Day. Take initiative and find a divey local spot to go to. Google is your friend! Yelp is your friend! -Or- something unconventional, like:
-Horror movie marathon
-Spiked root beer floats at home
3. Things to do if you're staying in:
-Take a free Love Languages test!
-Research your Erotic Blueprint
4. F%ck flowers! Valentine's Day is all about what's in your heart, not in the gift bag! We are betting that any partner in a relationship would prefer a card with a genuine love note than flowers that don't last. Check out these tips on how to write a non-sappy love letter.
5. If you DO insist on a gift, give the gift of pleasure. And by that, we mean give her something that she has to open in the bedroom. Our first-time sex toy blog for couples has ideas for every level of experience.
