But don't let that stop you from spending some much needed quality time to let your mate know they matter and mean the world to you.

Grab a coffee and a walk. Sometimes you just need to recharge and walking is great way to do that. How often do you get to exercise with your love? So grab warm drink and take a stroll.
If that's not exciting enough find a place to snow shoe or hike. The groundhog may have seen his shadow but last we checked there's still snow in much of the country. Snow showing and winter sporting is at times even more fun because there is lots of cuddling needed after to warm back up. Think of how great that hot toddy will be then!
*Speaking of which here's a hot toddy recipe !
1½ ounce brown liquor such as brandy, whiskey or rum1 tablespoon honey½ ounce lemon juice1 cup hot waterLemon wedge, cinnamon stick and star anise, for garnish (optional)
2) Heart Shaped Pizza and a Fancy Drink at home in front of fire.
Cost of date about $20 -30, depending on bottle of wine.
Yes papa Murphy's still has those! and they are perfect for date night in. Not greasy and set up a cozy romantic spot on the carpet and enjoy. Even if you have kiddos its extra fun. But don't forget the champagne or vino!
3) Tour a Brewery/ Winery

Much of yoga is very useful in the bedroom and sensual. What better way to get juices flowing than in a low lit yoga room. Many specialty yoga places have guest passes for first timers or a discounted rate for the holiday. Grab some dinner or make it together when you get home.
