Here’s how to show your love with spa packages, sunset horseback rides and really, really expensive dinners.

If you’re in the market for a Valentine’s Day date that’s bordering on bougie, and sometimes beyond (and you’re financially secure enough to not worry about all of the extra digits), then you need to check out these options.
