Valentine's Day Gift Ideas 2019

You got two weeks.

Sure, it’s an overly commercialized holiday but it’s still important to show that you care. This is your chance to make Valentine’s Day an opportunity instead of an obligation. Here are some ideas to help you this year.

Anything personalized

It’s an easy way to turn a good gift into a great gift. You can get their name, initials, or a personal message that means something to the both of you.

Something for their Pet

Let’s face it, you’re number 2 in your partner’s life. How are you supposed to compete with something so cute? Bond with your partner in your shared craziness over their fur baby. There are many great retailers on Etsy for unique collars, leashes, dog tags, and apparel. Look for high end boutique pet stores as well.

Plan a trip for two

Ah yes, the grand gesture of saying I can totally spend an extended amount of time with you outside of the comfort of my own home. This gift idea has such great flexibility for your interests, budget, and time. You can go anywhere from a weekend getaway to a bed and breakfast, a road trip, a ski lodge, an all inclusive tropical vacation, or an extravagant Euro trip.

Make something

On a budget or just wasting your creative potential? Making a gift can really show that you care about someone. You watch enough of those DIY videos on Facebook anyways, it’s time time to try one out! Make something that your partner can use like an organizer or picture display. Even something as simple as making a great meal means a lot. Cook their favourite dish or do some research and try something daring.

Learn something together

You can show your partner that you want to spend time and grow as people together by learning a new skill. It really depends on your interests but you can learn dance, cooking, photography, painting, martial arts, wood working, and any other skill you’ve ever though would be cool to know. A good relationship develops and grows over time and improving yourself alongside your partner is a great way to do that.

I hope I inspired some ideas. Happy Valentine’s Day.
