Last minute Valentine's Day tips!

OK – so we told you to remember that Valentine’s Day is coming, but I know that some of you didn’t listen. So here you are, without any plans.

Your palms are sweating, restaurants are laughing at you for trying to book a reso on Feb 14th, and the countdown until V-hour is rapidly approaching.

Fear not, Mogo-ites. Here are 4 quick tips that could save your last minute Valentine’s Day:

  1. Cook at home

Nothing says “I love you” (or, “I like you”) like a nice home cooked meal. Hit the grocery store, make your go-to recipe and wow that loved one with your culinary ninja tactics.

  1. Hit a restaurant that doesn’t take reservations

In Vancouver, a ton of the hottest restaurants don’t even take reservations — I’m looking at you, Vij’s — so pretend like you planned it like that. Go grab a coffee and get ready to line up with the other hungry lovers that are braving the winter lineups to eat at a non-reserved dinner.

  1. Hit the town

While places might be booked up across the city, Valentine’s Day can always be a fun day for some people watching. Whether you catch a bus-stop domestic, or see some adorable grandparents holding hands, you could definitely catch some V-day action out in the real world.

  1. Reschedule!

It’s not too late! Were you able to make a reso or some fun plans… that just so happens to fall on a different day than February 14th? Go with it! Make a special day for your loved one, on another day. Trust us, it can definitely work.

There you have it. 4 things you can do in the next few hours that could save your Valentine’s. Happy loving!
