A day to show the people we love just how much we love them, Valentine’s Day is definitely special. It’s one of those days where you don’t really want to spend a ton on a gift, but you want to get the right gift. And that’s really what it’s all about – knowing your lover well enough to get them the right gift.
And what do I mean by the right gift? I like to think of the right gift as whatever will make the recipient’s heart smile. The right gift is important because giving a gift is a chance to show someone that you love and appreciate them and all that they do for you. The best gifts can be anything from a piece of jewelry to an experience together. It’s not about how much money you spend, but rather it’s about how much time you spend selecting a gift that will make the one you love happy.
Here are a few Valentine’s Day gift ideas that I think do a great job of expressing true love and appreciation. Obviously you can make your final decision based on what you know about the love in your life, but I think at least one thing on this list is guaranteed to bring a smile to their face and make your Valentine’s Day one to remember.
1. Romantic Movie Night
Fellas, this is a chance for you to make her happy. Get two of her favorite chick flicks, some popcorn, chocolate, and her favorite beverage (maybe some bubbly). Then, sit back and actually try to enjoy the movies with her. She will appreciate the gesture more than you know.
2. Hot Air Balloon Ride
Hot Air Balloon
This is definitely on the pricey side. But if you are in a position to splurge, not many things are more romantic than a hot air balloon ride with your boo. You just can’t go wrong
3. Scratch Map
This is a cute gift if you both are into traveling, or you have big plans to travel together in the coming years. This scratch map is a fun way to keep track of the places you’ll go… together.
4. A Love Letter
Sometimes, the best gifts are free! In today’s age of technology, there is something so special about getting a love letter. You really can’t go wrong with this. And if writing a long letter isn’t your thing, take a shot at poetry. It’s just as romantic. And, be sure to deliver the letter creatively to add to the romance.
5. Spa at Home
Have you ever thought about replicating the spa experience in the comfort of your home? Candles, soothing music, and massage oil can get you started, but I would also add some wine, and a few unexpected spa treatments, like a pedicure. This is a great gift for him or her.
6. Dinner and Dancing
Cook your honey a special dinner. And after you enjoy it, just dance the night away. And be sure to dance the night away to a few old school tunes because the feelings brought on by those songs just can be brought on by today’s music.
