Best Romantic Clearwater Restaurants for Valentine’s Day

Last year on Feb. 13th, I entered a store and noticed a lot of men clustered like a herd of sheep in the greeting card aisle. Okay, maybe I should describe them as a herd of elk so they seem more manly. I moved closer and discovered they were choosing greeting cards for Valentine’s Day.

Most grabbed the first or cheapest ones they saw; a few meticulously read through several choices and carefully made selections. No doubt even on V-Day itself you will see men again crowding the same aisles.

Men, please read this: We love you, but it’s never a good idea to pick out a romantic card or gift on THE DAY itself or even the day before. Beat the procrastinators and show her you really care. Last-minute shopping leaves only the dregs no one else wanted, meaning boring cards, yucky boxes of chocolates and flowers arranged by an employee from the loading dock.

Which led me to wonder, what ARE the most popular gifts to give for Valentine’s Day? I Googled that and unsurprisingly in the site I checked, chocolates, flowers and cards indeed rated as the top three. In fact the average consumer spends $175 on Valentine’s Day. Hmm…either that’s a lot of chocolates or a really nice dinner.

Luckily, Clearwater offers some really special romantic dining choices for Valentine’s Day … or any day. Because romance shouldn’t be limited to only one day a year.
