As I walked down the road towards my office, I noticed shopkeepers hanging pretty little hearts on the glass doors and windows; restaurants tweaking their ambience just a little by adding a pinch of romance on the walls and a vase with red roses on tables; Valentine’s Day cards outnumbering happy birthday cards in the shelves in stationary shops – the season of love has arrived. And so has the search for things to do on Valentine’s Day to make your date quite special.
