Sure diamonds are great, but you know what else lasts a lifetime? Memories. Scroll down for a few of our faves.
1. Majesty's Pleasure
A spa day is always appreciated, but Majesty’s Pleasure takes this experience to another level. Enjoy the pampering of a mani pedi while sipping on a delicious cocktail. Prosecco, anyone?
2. Movie Night
Watching a movie with your partner may be your go to activity, so why not make it special with a little intentionality? Surprise your partner by having their favourite snacks, takeout or drinks picked up and ready to go. Why not make it extra cozy and build a pillow fort in the living room?
The gift that everyone wants, but no one wants to purchase for themselves. We get it, but it’s also important to relax and recharge. A massage is exactly what they need. Trust us!
4. Gelato Tasting
Valentine’s Day should be filled with sweetness in more ways than one, so make sure you don’t skip out on dessert. Or go all out and make it the main course with a gelato tasting from the heavenly Death by Venice.
5. Flower Subscription
Brighten up their day with a fresh bouquet of flowers delivered to their door monthly. Take the guesswork out of gifting – after all, who doesn’t love a beautiful bouquet on the table? Bonus points for supporting locally grown florists.
6. Candlelight Show
Enjoy a romantic and elegant musical escape, and an excuse to get out of those sweatpants! This company offers a variety of orchestra performances revolving around themes such as film scores and tributes to musical legends. They even have a special show for Valentine’s Day!
7. Cocktail Workshop / Cooking Class
Not all of us are master chefs or cocktail connoisseurs, so cooking a new dish or creating a new drink may be daunting for you. We’ve definitely been there! Try alleviating some of the pressure with a workshop. Whether you want to just follow along with a recipe on YouTube or actually purchase tickets to a live workshop, this gift is great with an option at every price point.
8. Paint Night
Roll up your sleeves and get messy! Make it a competition to create the most realistic sunset, or try to guess what each other’s abstract vision is. No matter what, the night will be filled with laughter and you might even realize your partner is the next Picasso.
Nothing says 'I love spending time with you' more than going on a little adventure together. A change of scenery for a couple of hours or even for a night stay allows for the two of you to get away from all distractions. Quality time is truly priceless, so choose a new town a couple hours away and get a good playlist ready for an exciting drive.
10. Board Game
Dust off the old Monopoly or Catan and get your game faces on… it’s about to become a little nostalgic (and maybe competitive). Take note of bae's favourite board game when they were young, or introduce them to yours. If you or your partner don’t have any, hit up your local thrift store and pick out something neither of you have played.
