Valentines Day is right around the corner. Along with this holiday comes the panic of making sure you find the perfect gift to represent the love you have for your significant other. The problem is that gift is nearly impossible to find.
What does a box of chocolates and a teddy bear say? That you’re not original!
It feels like we just got out of the big holiday season and shouldn’t have to worry about gifting anymore, but somehow this holiday sneaks up on us each year.
Instead of panicking about what type of meaningless gift to find for one another this year, why not make it simple and plan something you’ll both enjoy? Here are 5 gift ideas that can make this year the best Valentine’s Day yet for both of you.
Go on a Weekend Adventure
Nothing says “I love you” better than a romantic weekend getaway where you can forge memories that will last a lifetime. It doesn’t have to be far, or even extravagant! Take a trip to a nearby town and immersing yourself in a new locale will be enough to get you away from the everyday routine and have some special time.
Search for places within an hour drive that you could explore. Whether it’s a large city, cozy small town, or picture-perfect mountainesque view, you’ll be able to try new things and have a great time. Don’t forget your camera so you can capture all your memories!
Do a Date Night In Box
If you haven’t jumped on the train of date night boxes yet where have you been? This is an awesome service that packages a date night all in a box and delivers it to your door. How cool is that?! Customize yours based on you and your partner’s preferences and you won’t even need to leave the house for Valentine’s Day!
Get Tickets to An Event
This is one of the easiest ways to get out of buying a generic present you slap a bow on. Think about your common interests and pick out a fun event to go to. You may consider a local convention, a concert, a comedy show, or any other shows going on at a nearby venue. This will give you the chance to sit back together and relax. Plus, it provides easy dinner conversation afterwards!
Pick Out Some New Home Decor
Take your house to the next level with a fun upgrade you’ll both enjoy! It could be something more on the practical side like getting a nicer bed that fits your sleeping style or a larger couch to accommodate more guests. You could also through practicality out the window and splurge on something a little more fun like adding a sound system to your living room or really splurging on a hot tub. Want something that creates more of a project? Create a game room or build a mini bar to entertain guests in your home.
Take a Fun Class
A lot can be said for the value of learning a new skill. Trying something new with your partner makes it even better. You have the chance to bond, make memories, and laugh at each other’s amateur talents. If you want something easy, try a cooking class. Looking for more of a challenge? Try something on the artistic side like glass blowing or a pottery class. You most likely won’t walk away as an expert, but it gives you a fun memory to laugh over for years to come.
