A Valentine’s Day Guide for Stumped Love Birds


Celebrate your Sweetheart

A Valentine’s Day Guide for Stumped Love Birds

By Zaithed Cardenas   


With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, romantics everywhere are ready to celebrate with their loved one. While a basic box of chocolate, cards or roses are timeless Valentine’s gifts, why not make it extra special?


If you can’t think of a romantic gesture or you’re on a budget, I have a solution for you to get a smile or even a kiss from your boo; just keep reading.


The classic and one of the most popular date destinations is the movie theater. Lucky for you in El Paso, there’s six east side movie theaters to pick from (Cinemark East Montana, Cinemark 20, Cinemark Cielo Vista, AMC Classic East Pointe 12, Montwood Movies 7, and Premiere Cinemark IMAX at Bassett).


This year the movies that will be playing at Cinemark on Valentine’s Day are “Fifty Shades Freed,” “Maze Runner,” “Hostiles,” “Winchester,” “Peter Rabbit,” “The 15:17 to Paris,” and last but not least, the Fifty Shades triple feature. Times and prices are available on the Cinemark website or application.


Don’t fret if you’re loving on a budget because I’ve got the perfect solution for you. One cute DIY gift is “Our Love Timeline,” featuring dates that will help you and your love reminisce over your favorite memories. You could accompany this with a drive to special landmarks from your time spent together.


Another DIY idea you could try is making your date night into a scavenger hunt with a romantic meeting spot. It won’t only be romantic, but it will show your fun side.


A romantic night in never hurt either. Browse Netflix for a sweet chick flick, comedy or anything you and your boo would enjoy. Get extra brownie points by cooking a nice, hot meal for your partner or make it a team effort. If you guys aren’t exactly Gordon Ramsey-approved then you can always order pizza or chinese food.


So, no more excuses or worrying about how to celebrate your lover. Go get your movie tickets or look through Pinterest. Make this Valentine’s day one your sweetheart will never forget.
