Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. If you’ve been dating or married for a while now, you know that romance is different for everyone. For your significant other, they may enjoy the full package. They want a candlelit dinner, roses, chocolates, and champagne. On the other hand, they may be the person who just wants something small, like a night in with you and the kids.
Whatever your loved one wants, it’s up to you to decipher it and plan a day that they’ll enjoy. You’re not a mind reader. Sure, you’ve been with this person for a while. You know what they enjoy. However, everyone needs a special gift now and then. The following are a few gift ideas that you can give your loved one this Valentine’s Day.
1. Fresh Flowers
There’s nothing wrong with going with a classic for Valentine’s Day. A bouquet of fresh flowers may be exactly what they need to bring a smile to their face on this day dedicated to love. To put a little bit more thought in your floral section, avoid choosing selections from the grocery store or gas station. While they may be easy to get and cheaper, look into actual floral shops. If there aren’t any florists in your local area, you can get professionally arranged flowers from an online store like A Flower Shop.
As cliché as flowers may seem for Valentine’s Day, picking your loved one’s favorite flower or color can make them unique. You might also attach a personal, heartfelt note to show them how much you care.
2. Cozy Slippers
February is one of the coldest months of the year. Your significant other will greatly appreciate something that will keep them warm for the rest of winter. Besides functionality, the style of slippers you choose can really show how much you know them. Slippers come in all shapes and sizes. You can go luxurious with leather and suede exterior and faux fur lining the inside. Or, you can go with the simple yet still toasty fleece slippers. Whichever pair your valentine will love the thought you’ve put into your gift giving.
3. Espresso Machine
If you’re dating or married to a parent on the go, a new coffee maker might be just the loving gesture they need. Even if they already have one, upgrading it to a fancy espresso machine will be much appreciated. Many espresso machines have multiple settings and are easy to operate once you figure out all the features. Plus, a lot of them make beautiful accessories in the kitchen. It’s a gift they’ll appreciate long after the romantic day is over.
4. A Polaroid Camera
Making memories with your significant other is what it’s all about, so what better way to remember those moments than by capturing them on film? Polaroid cameras have made a major comeback in these past two years, and they prove to make great presents for all occasions. If your valentine loves photography, then one of these devices will be the perfect gift. With it, they can capture all the memories you to make together and print them. Your loved one can put them on your walls, in scrapbooks, or on the fridge. You’ll never forget the moments you have together with this gift.
While a gift is nice on the day that’s dedicated to love, it’s most important to spend time with the special people in your life. Whether you do something big or small, just let your valentine know that they’re loved on this day and every day of the year.
