The report recommends a little bit of originality, foresight and planning can help make February 14 extra special.

Myth No. 1: It's fine to skip Valentine's Day

Why this is false:

The secretitive heart of a girl will never spell out her expectations on such special day, she would want you to take the first step. At the same time most girls don't expect a movie like celebration, they respect simplicity.

You can keep Valentine's Day low-key and celebrate it in your own way. Take up an activity that both of you will enjoy and let that be your way of celebration. Any activity that you are sure she will enjoy leave back fond memories.

Why this is false:

Dinner is an all time favorite and best Valentine's Day plan. It never looses it's charm as a Valentine's Day special dinner is always different.

Make the dinner interesting, that will show your effort in making the evening special. A romantic place and a beautiful dinner table studded with all her favorite dishes, will give a unmatched pleasure. Cherish the happiness on her face as she rilishes the dinner.

Myth No. 3: Chocolates or flowers are good Valentine's Day gifts

Why this is false: The surprise factor is waht works wonders on the girl. Chocolates and flowers are much expected. It might get a smile on her face but not excietment.

What to do instead:

Originality is worth a million on Valentine's Day, especially when all of her friends will be getting the usual flowers and chocolates. Be a bit different by gifting her what she has been really craving for. Maybe a trip to a beautiful place, a music album etc.

Myth No. 4: You need to spend loads of money on her gift

Why this is false: A beautiful romantic day is all that matters on Valentine's Day.

A gift which spells out your emotions for her will be cherished the most. A gift which will remind her of you all the time.

Myth No.5: The gift has to be cheesy

Why this is false:

What to do instead:

Just stick to getting her a fun gift and even better is to take her shopping. It is girls major weakness.
