One of my favorite Valentine's activities when I was dating my husband-to-be was to create a treasure hunt for him with clues that had him driving around places, stopping in where I had left little gifts and further clues for where he was to head next. Ultimately he would wind up at a destination where I had a nice little mini-meal, a beverage, and some romantic music playing. That was a way that we both got ourselves into the mood, particularly on a workday. This year Valentine's Day is on a Monday and many people do need to work. So making that transition from working to celebrating your relationship is an important task to manage.
Another thing you can do in a long-term relationship is alternate every other year as to who's in charge of setting the mood. That way, you don't have two sets of plans bumping into each other with good intentions, fouling up the overall outcome. So, in my family I take the odd numbered years and my husband takes the even.
