Classic movie or horror fan? If you plan it, she will love it! By knowing what movie she knows off by heart, or what movie you'd stand in line for, whisking her away with surprise tickets to a movie will quicken the plot!

3. Active Activity!

It doesn't all have to happen indoors! Head out to a jazzercise class together, a stroll in the park or rent a segway, bicycle or find a nearby horse and buggy!! Getting out and enjoying a change of scenery will never need to be returned to the store!

4. Don't be bored!! Play a board game!

Go on a ghost hunt!! That's right....find somewhere spooky....bring a fully charged phone and head to your nearest abandoned house or cemetery....actually, maybe it's not such a good idea, I'm getting frightened just thinking about it!

8. Sing, Sing a Song!!!

If you're extroverted, head over to your nearest karaoke bar and sing, sing a song...sing out loud, sing out strong!! And if you're not inclined to exercise your lungs....go watch others (and try not to laugh too loudly!!)

9. When all else fails....jewelry!!

So, you've been there, done that and now it's time to put a ring on it!! That's OK, but you can still purchase a beautiful piece of jewelry without breaking the bank! Silver jewelry looks great, lasts forever and is more affordable than gold...so: what are you waiting for?
