What better time can there be than Valentine’s Day, to show your loved one what they mean to you. This is the time when you need to think out-of-the-box and come up with gestures and gifts that reflect the deep love you have for this person. Here are my top 10 creative ideas for valentine’s day gifts to help you find the perfect unique gift for your loved one. Most of these ideas are not things you can buy at the store, so they require a little extra work! However, it will be worth it to make your Valentine’s Day together one of the best and most romantic ones yet.
10 Creative Valentine’s Day Gifts:
Recreate your first date
Take your partner out to the same place where you had first met or had your first date. Order the same food, wear the same clothes and let them know that nothing has changed from then to now, except for the fact that your bond has just become stronger. This will be the perfect gift to show your love.
If you are a lover of smaller things, you could buy a bunch of small gifts and hide them around their house with short love letters. Leave a scavenger hunt clue here and there and watch your Valentine discover happiness in installments. Their beaming face as they discover each gift will be priceless.
A couple activity
Another one of my creative ideas for Valentine’s Day gifts is to find a fun activity in your area. Get yourself enrolled for some couple activity – dancing classes, cooking classes, or simply morning walks in the park. This will help you schedule quality time together while doing something both of you will enjoy. Spending time together doing a fun activity is always a great idea. This could even take the form or a gift card for a couple’s massage. That is sure to earn you some bonus points.
Making time for some love
Making love is an important part of being in love. So this V-Day, make sure that you let your partner know that they still light your fire of desire. Show them some special love and let your moves blow their minds away! This just may be the most popular of my Valentine’s Day ideas among men.
Make them a card
Making your own Valentine’s Day heart shape card is a great way to show you care. You can write from the heart and include a love quote as well. Use wood scraps wrapping paper, and/or ribbons to decorate. Reach into your crafting supply box and express yourself in a way that shows your love with a traditional card or wall art they can enjoy year round.
Do not underestimate the value of cute valentine’s day gifts like these. They seem little but they can say a lot. In the times of e-cards, your partner will surely appreciate if you make time to create a thoughtful card for them. A heartfelt message and a nice piece of art will make their day. You can even take the “What I Love About You” Challenge and decorate a whole wall!
Cook a meal together
The way to your partner’s heart is through their tummies and so is yours! So, one of the best ways to spend your Valentines Day is to get into the kitchen and cook a meal and dessert together. Don’t go for perfection. Go for fun and then relish it together. If neither of you are chefs, there is a good news. They have services like Blue Apron that will make it a breeze. This makes a fun and tasty date night.
Gift them a spa day
Relaxing and unwinding is the best form of pampering, so go ahead and book a spa day for your better half and soak in the happiness of gifting them a day where they will get pampered and spoiled! Or you can try your hand at DIY spa gifts such as these heart bath fizzies. What better way to say, I notice how hard you work at making at the office or at home to make our life better. It feels so good to be seen for what we do.
While chocolates may not immediately strike you as one of the most creative ideas for Valentine’s Day gifts, it can be. Sinfully good and an instant mood elevator, chocolates will never go out of fashion. Treat their sweet tooth with creative artisan chocolate bars or a fancy box of chocolates, and you can let them thank you later. A may be a little biased but, new valentine, or old, this will never backfire!
Do up their room
You can decorate their room to give them a surprise, or if they are the sorts who live in a cluttered environment, clean it up for them. Organize their stuff and leave sticky notes everywhere to show them how much you care! This could apply to the bedroom, living room, office, or garage work space as you know what they would enjoy the most. You are sure to have a good time spreading signs of your love around the room and they will love all the tangible signs of your love. Balloons, flowers, candles, cupcakes, cozy slippers, a love note, or other Valentine decorations make wonderful thoughtful gifts.
Relationship goal calendar
Pick quotes, memes, pictures, and everything adorable and compile it in the form of a goal calendar. This will reflect your goals in terms of the relationship, and will also set your expectations straight so that there is no lack of clarity between you and your loved one. You can add Valentine’s Day games, a restaurant reservation, and romantic movies to the calendar to show that your love is about more than just the holiday of love itself.
(Bonus) Plan a trip
Last but not least of my creative valentine ideas is a getaway. What better Valentine gift than getting to reconnect with each other on a relaxing trip? Plan a weekend getaway with your valentine and explore beautiful places while being with the one who matters the most. This is a great way to bond and a great way to be romantic all at the same time! The gift of time devoted to the person you love is always special.
With these creative Valentine’s Day ideas, you should be able to enjoy a really meaningful day centered around love! The best Valentine’s Day gifts don’t always fit in boxes so be creative. The more we can see that you put effort into the gift, the more will love it. This V-Day, I wish you love, happiness, and oodles of romance! What is the most romantic gift you have ever received?
