"[He likes] surprising me and ending up at a restaurant and having the place cleared out and rose petals and stuff like that," the actress, 24, said at Monday's Self magazine New York screening of her new movie Safe Haven. The gestures, she added, make her feel "so cute and special."
"Every year is really wonderful. The first two years were super romantic and like, over the top, because it was new," she said.
So, how will the Idol host, 38, who spent a romantic getaway with Hough in St. Barts earlier this year, make this Valentine's Day even more special?
"This year I think it will be more understated, like [celebrating] real joy of what we truly have. I have no idea, but I know there are plans. He likes to do Valentine's Day," she said.
Finally, asked if there will be a ring anytime soon, she responded, "Not yet."
