Whether you and your significant other have been together for a lifetime or just a little while, make Valentine's Day absolutely unforgettable with one of these fun activities. No matter what you and your beau decide to do, you'll both have the best time—because you're spending the day with each other.

A special home-cooked meal can be so much more romantic than going out to eat at a super busy restaurant. Even if one of you doesn't have chef-worthy skills, you can still make a memorable dinner you'll both enjoy.

2Have a romantic movie marathon.things to do on valentines day movieGETTY IMAGESCAIAIMAGE/PAUL BRADBURY

No, February 14 doesn't have to be all about presents, but it is nice to give—and receive—a little token of affection. Consider purchasing an item your loved one has always wanted, DIYing something special, or even just gifting a homemade card.

Pizza, strawberry pie, eggs in a basket, cupcakes... your imagination's the limit on this one. Up the romance factor by making finger foods (heart-shaped mini quiches, anyone?) and feeding them to each other.

5Play hooky.imageGETTY IMAGES

Take the day off from work and enjoy some R&R. Have breakfast in bed, do a crossword together, and go see a matinee movie. Reminisce about how and why you two first fell in love.

6Get to know each other better over a bottle of wine.imageGETTY IMAGES

Once the booze is flowing, ask each other these 36 questions scientifically proven to break intimacy barriers. Some you may already know the answer to ("How's your relationship with your mother?") while others are hypotheticals you've likely never posed ("If you could wake up tomorrow having gained one quality or ability, what would it be?").

If you've never done it before, now's the time to put in writing why your partner is so special to you. Tell them which of their qualities you most admire, how they make you feel, and why you fell in love with them. Get inspired by these famous love letters throughout history.

8Recreate one of your favorite dates.imageGETTY IMAGES

Maybe it's the drive-in where you first kissed or the restaurant where you celebrated becoming homeowners—pick a place that's special to your history as a couple and go back.

9Give each other a massage.imageGETTY IMAGES

Grab a bottle of body oil, set the mood with candles and soft background music (try Spotify's Spanish Guitar playlist), and give your partner at least 30 minutes of massage therapy. They can thank you by returning the favor.

11Send your partner on a treasure hunt.imageGETTY IMAGES

If gift-giving is your love language, send your significant other on a scavenger hunt dotted with trails of rose petals and handwritten clues to find their Valentine's Day present. For ideas, check out Pinterest.

12Take a bath together.imageGETTY IMAGES

For a bubble bath worthy of a honeymoon suite, surround the tub with candles, sprinkle rose petals in the water, and set a tray of chocolate-covered strawberries and a bottle of champagne within arm's reach.

No worries if overtly romantic gestures aren't your thing. Book a room at your local karaoke bar and have fun singing duets like Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers' "Islands in the Stream," Gwyneth Paltrow and Huey Lewis's "Cruisin'," and "You're the One That I Want" from Grease.
