Unexpected Valentine’s Day Gifts

This Valentine’s Day is all about unpredictability and romance. A dozen roses and a box of chocolates are a lovely sentiment, but it never hurt to spice things up a bit with some unexpected Valentine’s Day gifts. After all, a gift from the heart speaks volumes and shows how much you care. So, whether you’re giving your sweetheart a tangible gift or taking them out for a new experience, make sure you keep them on their toes. Because when it comes to love, an act of affection goes a long way.

1. Plan a Day at the Spa for Two

Surprise your valentine and reserve a get-away spa day for the two of you! With this in mind, ask them to take the day off of work or, if possible, get away for the whole weekend. Most importantly, you can spend the entire day together getting massages and facials and lounging around in one those fancy bathrobes. Ahhhh, relaxation.

2. Acts of Kindness

Skip the DIY coupons and really just focus on the small things. Coupons make it seem like a chore, and loving someone should be about putting them first. Consider taking the day or even over the entire month to show they mean the world by paying attention to the details. Sometimes the most “unromantic” things are really very romantic. Here are some ideas:

Dancing while you’re cooking? Why not. It’s romantic.
  • Get a hot bath started with candles, and relaxing music. Then leave the room and let them enjoy.
  • Help plan meals or meal prep for your partner. This is especially helpful if they are working out and working toward fitness goals.
  • Wash their car. Sometimes we forget to do the things we need to do, so it’s extra special when someone does it for us.

3. Take a Class Together

If they like cooking, schedule a cooking class.  Enjoy a hands-on cooking experience with one-on-one instruction from professional chef instructors. Or you can try dancing class together. It is a great way to stay active and have fun. Whatever it is, learning now things can be more fun with your partner by your side. So, get in the kitchen or on your feet and learn some thing new together.

4. Go on an Adventure

Do something that you wouldn’t ordinarily do on any other day of the year. To illustrate, take a ride up in a hot air balloon or sign up for a couples ballroom dance class. And, if you and your partner are adrenaline junkies, try rock climbing or indoor skydiving. If you rather keep your heart rate down, think about other adventures, like traveling to a city neither of you has been before. It could be across the seas or just out-of-town, either way it is a great way to spend time together.

5. Give Them a Spouse to Clean Their House

Not you! Us. Give them a Spouses Cleaning Houses gift card this Valentine’s Day. The most unexpected Valentine’s gift of all may be the gift of a clean home. A house cleaning offers your loved one time to relax and spend more time with friends and family. Consequently, less time cleaning means more time spent doing some of the things above.

Knock it out of the park this year with an unexpected Valentine’s Day gift. Everyone deserves to feel special.
