Valentine's Day

My son’s first Valentine’s Day at school in Germany left me scrambling at the last minute. I’d made it to the base Exchange too late — the traditional boxes of themed sign-and-tear cards I remember giving away to my classmates when I was a little girl had long-since been sold out.
This Valentine’s Day, skip the chocolates and flowers to splurge on a gastronomic experience at exceptional restaurants close to home.

Flowers and chocolates are always fun to give and receive on Valentine’s Day, but if you are looking to shake things up with your gift-giving, there are plenty of ways to tell someone you love them.
Here are unique gift ideas to really wow that special someone.
Valentine’s Day is the perfect holiday to showcase your dessert-making skills with a variety of delicious ingredients. Chocolate, of course, is the most widely used ingredient in any dessert and is easily paired with fresh fruits, nuts and coconut.
Whether you're a new couple or you've been married for decades, celebrate with your sweetheart at one of 25 local events for valentines this week at a duty station near you.
