Make it a Totally Awesome 80s Valentine’s Day

80s Valentine's DayIf you’re looking for ways to spend Valentine’s Day with that special red-carnation person, we at Like Totally 80s have some great ideas! The 80s are chock-full of great love songs and movies so welcome to the Love Shack and get ready as we Never Say Goodbye to love and romance 80s-style.

To help you put a retro twist on Valentine’s Day, we have compiled all the resources you need. We have gift ideas, mix tape song lists in the lovey-dovey genre (and even in the not-so-much if that is more to your liking – see our Anti-Valentine’s List), and date night 80s movie suggestions to help you create the perfect 80s-inspired Valentine’s Day for your sweetheart.

New in 2012: We’ve even designed the perfect 80s-inspired Valentine for you. Send the image to your favorite 80s gal (sentiment works better in that direction) by email or post it on her Facebook Wall. You could even print it for an old-school greeting.

Remember the 80s carnation code to love: white = friends, pink = want to get to know you better, red = L-O-V-E.
