Surprising someone you love is fun.
What better time than Valentine’s Day?
Any gift, big or small, will be appreciated by your loved one.
Here are some ideas for surprising your special someone this Valentine’s Day.
Homemade gifts are meaningful.
Put together a photo album, make a “mix” of favorite songs, or make a special meal from scratch, including a decadent dessert.
Frame a favorite photo of the two of you and write a love letter to go with it, or buy his or her favorite movie and put it with a soft blanket and some microwave popcorn.
Don’t be afraid to share your crafty side!
Give an experience
Instead of going for a stuffed animal or a box of chocolates, give your significant other tickets to an event they’ll love.
Have fun together at a concert, musical, movie, or festival that he or she would like to attend.
Sometimes it’s hard to spend money on those extras for yourself. They mean much more when someone buys them for you.
Update a room
Unless you send your loved one on a trip, surprising them with the finished product of renovated bathroom may not be feasible.
But you can talk to your contractor and set things in motion. When Valentine’s Day arrives, you can reveal your plan in a creative way.
Imagine the delight of your special someone when they find out that you’ve planned for a new kitchen or bathroom!
Have professional photos taken
Has it been a long time since you’ve updated pictures of the kids?
Or maybe your loved one has a special attachment to their pet and would enjoy some sweet pictures of their furry friend.
Try to think outside the box!
Hidden love notes
The sweetness of Valentine’s Day isn’t reserved just for those who can spend a lot of money.
Anyone would love a day filled with love notes, right?
Think through your significant other’s daily routine.
Hide a note in strategic places for them to find throughout the day.
The extra effort is worth much more than a store-bought gift.
Personalized video card
Surprise your special gal or guy with a video card.
Check out Animoto, which allows you to take your own pictures and create a slideshow that’s set to music.
When it comes right down to it, anything personalized is going to be a huge hit.
It’s a great way to give a gift that the two of you can look at together, over and over.
Give the gift of time
Plan a full day of all your favorite things to do together.
Start with breakfast in bed, of course!
Spend the day doing all the things you love, even if it’s just watching movies and eating take-out on the couch.
The most important thing is that you’re taking the time to enjoy each other’s company.
You can always score points with some of the more “normal” Valentine’s Gifts.
Who wouldn’t like to be surprised at work with roses?
A box of candy is more yummy than cliche, right?
Don’t put too much pressure on yourself!
The most important thing is that you’re showing your special someone that they’re thought about and loved.
