Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and don’t you dare think about getting her another box of chocolates or bouquet of a dozen red roses. Step up your romance game this year and really wow your partner with a unique and creative gift she’ll love.
The most special gifts are the ones that give you an experience you can enjoy together. Think of something your partner has mentioned they have always wanted to try. Or, if you’re feeling adventurous, give them a gift of something totally outside of the box that the two of you can do together.
We’ve rounded up five fun and romantic gift ideas so you can woo your partner this V Day. After all, the fun and romance shouldn’t end after the honeymoon.
1. Go Horseback Riding
Enjoy a scenic horseback ride in the beautiful trails of Vernon, New Jersey. Take your sweetie on an adventure through 350 acres of woods with experienced wranglers and charming horses. You’ll get the chance to be outside, be together and do something totally out of the ordinary.
2. Dance Lessons at Arthur Murray
Dance lessons are sexy, romantic and fun! Perhaps your partner has mentioned wanting to take dance lessons together before, or perhaps the idea terrifies you both a little. Either way, dance lessons can be a a great way to get physically and emotionally close and have a lot of fun while doing something active. Dance lessons are also a great way to spice up your relationship.
3. Have a Grape Escape
Get handsy with grapes (and one another) as you make your own custom wine. Different than your typical wine tasting date, couples can personalize their wine by choosing the region, grape type, barrel type, and the amount of aging it will receive. Then, they get to participate in the winemaking process by crushing, pressing, racking and bottling their own wine. You’ll get to take home your bottle with a custom label to enjoy it on another date together!
4. Get Hot in the Kitchen
Spice things up in the kitchen and in your relationship by taking a cooking class together. Le Gourmet Factory offers classes where couples can prep, season and prepare a complete dinner with an expert chef, and enjoy a sampling of the dishes afterward. Various themes are offered including sexy seafood and mardi gras night. Make sure you sneak in a few hand-fed bites to one another throughout the night to up the romance factor.
5. Paint Your Love
Attend a paint nite at one of your favorite bars or restaurants. Paint Nite travels to different venues and provides everything you need to paint your own canvas. Sip on a glass of beer or wine as an experienced artist leads you in the painting. You and your sweetie will have fun being creative together and will get to take home your paintings as a memory of the fun night you had.
There’s no shortage of ideas when it comes to taking your sweetie on an exciting and whimsical date. Choose one of the options above, or combine a few different ones to make this Valentine’s Day one to remember.
