Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and you want to make sure it’s the perfect day. One thing that could make or break this day are the gifts you give your beloved. The following are a few romantic gift ideas you can consider.
If you and your loved one love art, then consider getting a custom portrait. This is something people don’t always think about, but it could be a thoughtful gift. You’ll want to find an artist you and your partner might like.
Check out the artist’s past work, and be sure this person’s style is perfect for both of you. It may also be a good idea to meet with this person a few times to make sure your personalities will work well together. Remember that a portrait does take some time to complete, so be patient with the artist. Get a time frame for completion so that you don’t get too impatient.
Perhaps the best idea is to give your beloved a basket with delicious treats. Sweet treats are synonymous with this day of love, but a basket takes your box of chocolates up a notch. There are a number of curated Valentine’s Day baskets filled with wines, snacks and a variety of dessert treats you both love.
Consider the day you’re going to be having, and let that guide your choice. For example, Hickory Farms offers a variety of these baskets, complete with savory snacks, wine, and sweet treats that you can take on a picnic if that’s what you’re planning to do with your partner.
Wonderful Photo Shoot
Maybe you want to give your partner an opportunity to look wonderful in a picture. We’ve all been living in comfy clothes for women and men for the last several months so an opportunity to dress up, get glam and do a photoshoot will be an extra special treat. Surely, your partner might look great in a picture, but a photographer can make your partner look like a movie star.
What’s even better is this photographer can do the same for you. The photographer will give you outfits and help you pose in ways you might not have considered without a professional. It might feel silly, but you’ll end up with wonderful pictures that you can place around your home. Be sure to consider the kind of style you want, from traditional-looking pictures to more artistic or daring ones.
One thing that could be great is a throw blanket. Now, it’ll have to be something truly special if you want your partner to love it. Consider the materials used to make the blanket. You’ll want to stay away from anything synthetic because that won’t feel special.
What you want is pure cashmere, alpaca, or even fur. You want to make sure it’s high quality. You might want something from luxury brands to make sure the quality is as special as your partner is. Throw blankets are cozy and could be perfect, especially if you’re going to be relaxing together at night while you watch a movie or drink some wine.
Gift of Style
Maybe your partner needs a day to feel beautiful and pampered. If that’s what you think your partner would enjoy, then why not give your loved one the gift of style in the form of a wardrobe consultant or a stylist. These folks live for fashion and know how to study each person’s body. They know how to highlight the best parts of a person with clothes.
If you know your partner would love a makeover, then this might be an interesting idea. You also get to give your partner an opportunity to go on a shopping spree, which is good, too.
If you know your partner has been under a lot of stress lately, and just need a little time off, then why not give your partner that time off? Find a retreat that your partner would love. Check your loved one’s schedule, or let your partner set up a date after you tell him or her what you want to do.
Retreats are great because everything is taken care of, and people get to disconnect from things that could stress them out. By the time your partner is back, they’ll feel refreshed and ready to take on the day again.
Hopefully, you find the right gift on this list, but always trust your gut when it comes to romantic gifts. Your heart knows what would make your partner’s spirit sing, so trust yourself and let these ideas inspire you.
