Creative Valentine’s Day Gifts

In a word: don’t be afraid to get lovely and creative this Valentine’s Day.

Going out to eat isn’t always worth the time. In our era of GrubHub and Postmates, chances are that you spend as much money on going out to eat as you do on your rent in a month. While fancy restaurants have typically been the craze for Valentine’s Day, reservations are hard to come by. Cooking at home can be an amazing treat for you and the one you love, especially if you decide to take an adventure in the kitchen and cook something out of the ordinary. Plus, if the meal turns out terribly, you’ll have a great story of the time you tried so hard to make Valentine’s Day special, and it ended with takeout Chinese food.

Think about relaxing… together. An underrated and also extremely fun thing to do as a couple is a couples massage. If you want to really show the love, you may even swing for a couple’s spa day. While it might not sound like the most fun to be wrapped in seaweed and lying next to each other on spa tables, it can actually be a relaxing and fun experience that you both will enjoy.

On horseback or bicycles-taking a ride can be extremely fun. If you and your significant other enjoy the great outdoors, scheduling a bike tour can be a really fun way to see your city or town. Or, is there is a place accessible to you, scheduling a meandering horseback ride followed by a nice dinner can be a great way to say, “I love you.” The best part about being in love is getting to spend time together. This Valentine’s Day, try to find an activity (like biking or horseback riding) that will allow the two of you to make memories and enjoy being together.

Pull all your memories together. Whether you have been married for years, or dating for a few months, chances are that you and your significant other have made a substantial amount of memories together. If you create a slideshow of photos, or even take the time to make a few pages of a scrapbook for your partner, the two of you can spend an evening reminiscing about all the fun you’ve had together in your relationship. This is also a great gift idea for friends or family members that you want to express love to on Valentine’s Day. Making something for the people you care about shows that you care about the details of your relationship and that you care.

Take on a new adventure. There are a thousand ways to pass the time in big and small towns and cities across the country. Take your significant other to play an escape style game, or to do a high ropes course for the day. Maybe you’re both daredevilish enough to try skydiving together, or you want to take a long walk a local park or greenway. Whatever you decide, going on a new and fun adventure together can be a great way to show your person the love and have a lot of fun doing it.

No matter how you choose to spend your Valentine’s Day, we hope you have a safe and happy one. And, if you already show love in creative ways and don’t need Valentine’s Day gift ideas, nothing really beats a night at home, cuddled up on the couch.
