With Valentines Day quickly approaching, there are a lot of people searching for the perfect gift to get their special someone. Look no further! Whether you’re looking to spend a small or large amount, we have compiled a list of ideas that your significant other is sure to love.
Valentines Day Basics
Candy/Chocolate- you can never go wrong here! Whether it’s a new relationship or you’ve been married for years, this gift is a great way to let someone know that they are loved. After all, Charles M. Shulz did say, “All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.”
Teddy Bears- this gift needs to make a comeback. Getting a teddy bear can be so special. After all, this is a gift most people never get to receive as an adult!
Flowers- there is no better gift for Valentine’s Day! Every woman (and I’m sure men too) love receiving flowers. AND there are so many different options: roses, sunflowers, daisy’s, tulips, the list goes on and on. If you don’t know which ones are her favorite, we promise you can’t go wrong with a bouquet of red roses on this holiday 🙂
Candles- yet another item where there are a lot of choices. Candles are a great gift to give because they can be used year round and are great for stimulating the senses and creating a positive mood!
A Tie (for him)- If you man likes to get dressed up, why not get him something that personalizes his look? Tie’s are not usually something that men buy for themselves- that is why this makes the perfect Valentine’s Day gift!
Go Above and Beyond for your Significant Other’s Valentine’s Day Gift
If you are someone who likes to go above and beyond the basics on Valentine’s Day, then this list is for you! Here are some more extravagant gift ideas that you could get your loved one:
Spa Day- what better way to tell someone you love them than by giving them something that allows them to unwind and relax?
Name a star after them- this is a gift that is so meaningful in many ways. How sweet would it be to look up in the sky and know that one of those stars was named just for you?
Jewelry- rings, bracelets, necklaces, and earrings are all great gifts! They do say that diamonds are a girl’s best friend.. but if you’re buying for the man in your life, consider purchasing a nice watch.
Event Tickets- take your favorite person to see one of their favorite things. This also allows you to create more memories with your spouse doing something they love.
A Trip out of Town- because everybody loves a spontaneous getaway!
A pet- If you know your significant other has been wanting a dog or cat, this might be the perfect time to surprise them with a new furry friend.
The Gift of a NEW SMILE- bring your special someone to Cardinal Orthodontics and give them the greatest gift of all! The confidence of a new smile can be achieved through braces or Invisalign, and is a gift that will last them a lifetime.
A Thoughtful Valentines Day Gift
Maybe you’re not looking to spend a lot of money, and just want to give your person something special this Valentine’s Day. There are plenty of thoughtful gifts to consider:
Hand Written Note- one of the best ways to let someone know how you feel about them is to actually tell them. Make it more meaningful and write it down on paper and give it to them this Valentine’s Day.
A Year of Dates- plan something to do once a month for a year and give your significant other certificates that say what each month entails. Some examples could be: a movie night, dinner date, ice skating, etc.)
Photo Album- make them an album full of all your memories together! This is something he/she will always be able to go back and look at.
Cook Dinner- Surprise your spouse and cook them their favorite meal.
