Love is in the air, and with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we bring you our top romantic movie and music favorites to cuddle up with your special one. Of course, we have romantic picks for the single ones too!

Love Actually 

Love Actually tracks the lives of eight very unusual couples who are dealing with their romantic issues in various moving and hilarious interconnected tales, all set during the frantic month before Christmas in London, England. Well-known actors such as Hugh Grant, Colin Firth, Kiera Knightley and Liam Neeson make this film a heart-warming must-watch for this week.

Ever After

This movie is a must see for every girl who is still dreaming for her prince charming. Who could resist this Cinderella story complete with Anjelica Huston as the evil stepmother and Dougray Scott as the handsome prince?

This movie's Cinderella isn't a shrinking violet. Drew's Danielle comes across as a strong, opinionated, and fiercely proud young woman. Her longing for love, and her loyalty to her father's memory and the family's farm, necessitate other acts of disobedience or deception. Danielle wins over the love of the prince, not by wile or physical beauty, but through her intelligence and charm. You go girl!

The Notebook

The well-known film The Notebook is a 2004 romantic drama film directed by Nick Cassavetes. The script, written by Jeremy Leven and Jan Sardi, is based on the novel of the same name by Nicholas Sparks. This film is one of the best-known dramatic heartbreakers – probably by far the most moving out of all the romantic movies. The incredibly talented Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams make this film heart-wrenching but beautiful.
