By Maria Darbenzio

The holiday of romance is right around the corner, so now is the time to start making plans (that is, if you haven’t done so already). Don’t catch yourself off-guard with a last-minute dash for reservations. Whether you’ll be spending the day with a special someone or going out for a single girls’ night on the town, check out these great articles from our partners for some fun tips:

1. Giving gifts: Buying a gift for someone can be difficult no matter the holiday. Although your feelings should be expressed every day of the year, Valentine’s Day is perfect for sharing new and exciting components of your relationship. If you’re still having trouble thinking up the perfect present, try browsing through some of these ideas.

2. Being prepared: As you ladies know, nothing’s worse than smearing your makeup without having anything in your purse to fix the problem. Don’t be caught unprepared! Keep your lipstick close by and freshen up when it begins to fade. Check out what else you should keep with you so you can stay radiant all night long.

3. Choosing an outfit: Sometimes, there’s simply not enough hours in the day for a wardrobe change. If you need to rush from the office to the restaurant on Valentine’s Day and have no time to stop home in between, find some transitional styles that can take you from that daytime outfit to the perfect date night look. You can find some fabulous pieces that will make you look glam in no time.

4. Sorting your schedules: Both you and your partner lead very busy lives. Make sure that your plans have been made at a time that works for both of you. The last thing you want is to have to postpone — or even cancel — your Valentine’s Day date.

5. Embracing singledom: There’s nothing wrong with spending Valentine’s Day on your own. In fact, there are plenty of ways to enjoy this holiday by yourself. Use this day to treat yourself and discover new things to be passionate about. Take a look at this article for some awesome ideas!
