Version 1.0 (Lame) The Easy Upgrade
Boring Bouquet Name Those FlowersTailor a bouquet with flowers that each have a meaning, and write the meaning in the accompanying card.

Heart-Shaped Box of Chocolates Gourmet ChocolateSend hand-picked chocolates to her office for her AND her female coworkers. If you have children, include hand-made Valentine’s Day cards from them with the delivery.
The Bland Invitation Evite to RomanceCreate a customized, romantic invite on Evite, a la an invite to an exclusive event… your exclusive event.
Your Usual Dressed-Up Attire Detail Your LookDress in a new suit or outfit she’s never seen, and show up dressed in something she’s always wanted you to wear. At worst, you only have to wear it for one night.  Also try a haircut and a new cologne.  Tiny details can make a huge difference.
Her Usual Dressed-Up Attire Pamper Her Surprise her with a gift certificate to her favorite clothing store and a day of shopping while you tend to the house and/or kids. Throw in a manicure, pedicure and facial, and make the appointment for her to take place on the day of your upgraded V-Day date.
Same Old Vehicle Chauffeur in StyleSurprise her with a chauffeured car for the evening, to keep the ambiance and romance going.  Limos.com can find you the perfect ride at an affordable cost.  Sprinkle rose petals on the seat, play romantic music and leave the hassles of parking, watching your limit and dealing with traffic to your driver.  This simple luxury can make all the difference.
The Usual Restaurant Romantic Food TourResearch and make reservations at OpenTable for a restaurant based on her taste.  Surprise her with reservations at multiple destinations – one for appetizers and drinks, one for the main meal, and one for dessert.  And order dessert despite her objections!
The After-Dinner Place You Always Go Jazz it UpRomance doesn’t stop with the dinner check. Use Citysearch to find a stylish, upscale hotel lounge with live jazz, or take her dancing at a place designed for romance.
Ho Hum Home (or Hotel) Concierge or Driver CupidIf staying in a hotel for the night, introduce yourself to the concierge and have him stock your room with special treats, champagne and strawberries, candlelight and wine, her favorite tunes… Or do the same for the ride home by making friends with your driver – soft music, candles and champagne can turn a simple ride home into a night to remember.
The Usual Gift Follow the above upgrades, and any gift will leave a memorable impression if chosen thoughtfully. A night filled with extravagance and a simple gift from the heart can be the most meaningful of all.
