Looking to make this Valentine’s Day unique and memorable for you and your significant other? Don’t reach for the flowers and chocolates; instead opt for these ten original suggestions that will make her swoon.
Track down a photo that means a lot to the both of you. Go to a website or local shop that makes prints from photos and get a nice-quality, glossy print. Put it in a nice frame. Write a romantic message on the back of the frame along with the date.
Does she love the outdoors? Pack a picnic and take her out for a day of hiking. Is her favorite band coming to town? Grab two tickets. When you get her something thoughtful that she didn’t specifically ask for, it shows that you are considerate and know her interests well.
Do you play an instrument? Guitar, trumpet, kazoo, triangle? Put some thought and time into a simple song for her; it doesn’t matter if it’s poetic or silly, she will be absolutely wooed by the fact that you put so much effort into her gift.
If your sweetie is more about thought than material (and especially if you don’t have extra spending money this Valentine’s Day), nothing beats a well-written letter. Pour your heart out onto the page. Tell her how much you adore her, how beautiful she is, and all the wonderful things she makes you feel.
Whether it’s breakfast, lunch, or dinner, there’s no beating a well-made, well-planned meal. Look into some creative and unique recipes that utilize her favorite foods, or go with an old standby that you know she loves. Whatever your choice (or cooking skill level), she’ll appreciate having a meal made just for her.
This one is ambitious, but it’s definitely been done successfully. Flash mobs are groups of choreographed dancers that meet up to surprise someone in a public place. Organizing a flash mob takes a bit of time, but it will be so worth it to watch her face light up when her favorite song comes on and dozens of strangers come together to put on a show for her.
If your partner loves jewelry, don’t just go for a run-of-the-mill necklace or bracelet. There are many companies that offer personalized jewelry, so give her something with a sweet message.
If you and your girl are serious, consider gifting her something that’s been in your family for a while, such as your grandmother’s necklace. The personal significance it holds for you, and the fact that she means enough to you that you would pass it on to her, will melt her heart.
That’s right, you can create your own personalized M&M’s online. Just type in your message and order however many candies you want. If she’s a chocolate lover, she’ll go nuts for this gift.
There are more stars in our galaxy than there are people on earth, plenty of which are unnamed. You can buy a certificate which officially names one of those stars after your sweetie.
There are plenty of unique and memorable gift options out there for your special lady. No matter your budget, any gift that you put thought and care into will be much appreciated. With a little consideration and lots of heart, you can absolutely make this a Valentine’s Day that will sweep her off of her feet.
