Want to be romantic? Then you better get planning!

So you've just about gotten over the sleepless nights over the dilemma of what to get your loved one for Christmas when all of a sudden you're back to square one.

That's right... it's that time of year when you have to start looking for the perfect gift for your partner... all over again! Except this time it has not only to be a great gift, but it has to uber romantic too! As if present buying wasn't hard enough! So unless your partner is very easy to please and likes everything (highly unlikely!), then you are go ing to be trawling through the shops on February 13th looking for that perfect Valentine's Day gift.  

Here at Hostels.com we know that last minute present buying is no fun so we thought we'd give you the heads-up on getting organised for St. Valentine's Day, and also to give you an idea of a great gift you could get that would be fun for all tastes... A romantic getaway! Why not surprise your loved one this year with the gift of travel and organise a romantic weekend for two over St. Valentine's weekend?

There are lots of perfect places to visit all over the world be it for a few days or a week's long vacation. And you don't have to break the bank either as there is so much cheap accommodation out there and don't forget that many hostels offer private en-suite rooms from rock bottom prices. Leaving you with loads of extra cash to wine and dine your loved one!

Our website blog reckons New York City is perfect for a romantic getaway and you can find out more on that here. Then there's the city of romance - Paris; and not forgetting Rome, Venice and Vienna to name but a few! There are also smaller spots like Cape Cod and Niagara Falls, or a mountain escape in Interlaken, Switzerland. The options for a romantic getaway are endless so all it takes is a little bit of planning and you've got yourself the ideal Valentine's Day gift!
