TOWCESTER, England, February 9, 2011 - Stuck for what to do for your loved one this Valentine's Day? Here are a
few ideas to get both of your pulses racing, from cool driving experience
days ( to the
bestfilms to watch.

Let's face it - the usual red roses, chocolates and boring meals for two
with a million other couples just don't cut it for V-Day any more. If you
want to impress the man or woman in your life, you're going to have to think

They say music is the food of love, but it's time to throw those love
song compilations away: the perfect Valentine's Day gift is actually one that
gets the adrenaline racing.It gives you something cool to talk about down the
pub afterwards, it's memorable and so much more fun than the usual
Valentine's fluff. What's more, scientific studies have shown that when
people experience something mildly scary together, it can increase attraction
between them. You could trybungee jumping, zorbing or even skydiving together
or, if you're the social-but-single type, you could get some pals on board
for some paintball action - just make sure you're on the same team as that
hottie you've been eyeing up.

One of the most exciting ways to get the heart racing however is with a
fast and furious Ferrari driving experience
( at a racing circuit.
These aren't just gifts for men, either -women love the thrill of the ride
just as much. There's something seriously cool about driving one of the
world's most famous supercars at incredibly high speeds around a racing
track. Even with your crash helmet on, the sound alone will have you
grinning from ear to ear for days afterwards.

If you love fast cars but don't have a driving licence, don't panic - you
can still take part as a passenger, with a highly experienced professional
driver at the wheel. There are even some rookie courses available to give you
the chance to drive around the circuit without a licence.

The only tricky decision left is trying to decide whether your partner is
a classic car or rally racer type. Fortunately, lots of circuits offer
a driving experience gift voucher
( that lets the
recipient choose what to go for and some, such as Silverstone, even put
on special Valentine's Day offers.

If you're looking for more of a low key celebration, then you can always
kick back with a DVD or go to your local stand-up comedy club. Leave the
cheesy rom-coms on the shelf and opt for a scary film instead, or make sure
you sit really near the stage at the comedy gig to up the chances of being
heckled. Both will give you a little taste of the excitement you'd expect
when you climb into the driver's seat of a car with a top speed of 186mph for
the first time.
