A box of chocolates and a rose is nice, but sometimes, you need a little more to make this Valentine’s Day truly special. The problem is figuring out what you could do to create that moment when your partner’s eyes light up. The following are five gift ideas that should make this day as unique as you want it to be.
1. Heart Song
The idea of singing might scare some people, and that’s okay. You don’t have to be a great singer to do this because that’s not the point. Sure, it will help if you could sing, but this is not necessary. You will need to spend some time getting this together, though.
You’ll want to write a song or hire someone to help you write a song that feels personal and real to your relationship with this person. If you don’t know how to play an instrument, then learn to do so, or hire a band who can help you sing your song to your partner. The more work you put into this, the better. It might be a good idea to record this gift, so let someone help you do that because this is something you both want to remember.
2. Truly Unique
If you can’t see yourself singing a song for your loved one, then maybe you should get something unique. You shouldn’t limit yourself to a regular big box store or the mall to accomplish this task. These places make their money by selling the same products to everyone.
If you want something special, you’ll want to think outside the box. For example, you could purchase a handcrafted cuckoo clock. These types of clocks have everything you would imagine an old clock would have, from their elaborate design to their unique mechanics. This is the perfect gift for a partner who loves to stand out.
3. Photo Shoot
Another fantastic gift to give is a photoshoot. Yes, a professional photoshoot could be a wonderful and sweet gift. You’ll have to hire a professional who can help ensure that your partner is shot in a flattering way. Most of the time, these folks have a wardrobe to offer your partner, but you should still ask just in case.
Go all out, and you won’t regret it. The right photographer will make your partner look like a Hollywood star, and that’s going to make you both feel good. The pictures can be shared on social media or could be kept confidential if you want. Consider placing a few images around your home. Be sure to hire a photographer that will do the style you wish to, from artistic to traditional.
4. Black Tie
It’s easy to see that going out to dinner is not as formal as it once was. This is not the case everywhere. You can still find restaurants that require you to wear a jacket or a stunning dress. Seek these restaurants out even if they are miles away from you.
Since people don’t get many chances to wear formal wear, why not give yourself a reason to dress like a million bucks? High-end restaurants employ the best chefs in the world, so you’ll be able to eat well and look great. If you don’t have formal wear, this will give you a chance to buy a nice suit or dress.
5. Memory Lane
A walk down memory lane could also be a great gift. Showing that you remember some of the places that made your relationship special is a great gift. Go to the place where you both had your first date or the place where you two met. Talk about the stuff you used to talk about back then and the wishes you had.
You’ll be surprised how special something like this could be. If you don’t live in the area, you two met, take a flight out there. Planning a big trip like that might even make this gift feel much more special. Be sure to add a few stops like places where you two used to eat or things like that.
Hopefully, you can find the perfect gift on this list, but try to follow your heart. Be sure to take your time with this gift. You need to plan it out as much as possible so that everything goes smoothly.
