How to surprise your special someone this Valentine’s Day
Are you on a last-minute search for that perfect something for that special someone? Search no further. Here are a few ideas that you might find helpful in the decision of what to buy for your significant other this Valentine’s Day.
1. BOX OF CHOCOLATES
A classic box of chocolates is always an excellent choice for a Valentine’s Day gift. Cute, easy, and delicious -what could be better? All you have to do is venture out to a chocolate store near you, be it Bissinger’s at Plaza Frontenac or Godiva at the Galleria, and you’ll be sure to find exactly what you’re looking for. And one of the extreme perks of giving chocolates? Your significant other will be sure to share at least a few yummy truffles with you! Simple, sweet and scrumptious, a box of chocolates is definitely a wonderful option.
2. PERSONALIZED GIFT
Your gift can be completely personalized with the help of your very own creative mind! Just hop on over to Creve Coeur Camera, Schillings, or some other camera/printing store, or navigate your way to the Shutterfly website, and the gifts to choose from are unbelievably adorable! Do you and your special someone have an obsession with mugs? Water bottles? Blankets? Phone cases? Personalizing one of these gifts by adding a photo or monogram is sure to be a big hit this Valentine’s Day. Pick your favorite picture of the two of you, choose a special gift to put it on, and the final product will be ready for you in only a few days! Your partner is 100% guaranteed to fall in love with something so personal, thoughtful and creative.
3. DINNER DATE
Can’t decide what to buy for your Valentine? Take them out to dinner! A dinner date at a nice, cozy, romantic restaurant will surely result in plenty of memories and lots of fun. Or, perhaps you could give your Valentine a gift card or coupon to a special restaurant that means a lot to the two of you. That way you can go out whenever you feel like it, and not just on Valentine’s Day. Taking your Valentine out to dinner is a great choice for a romantic night to remember.
4. PHOTO COLLAGE AND LETTER
Feeling nostalgic? Take a look back at all the photos and memories you and your Valentine have together. Print some pictures, cut them out with cute, silly shapes, and paste them to a poster board! Add some hand-drawn designs and your partner will be wowed. If you’re feeling extra nice, go for the gold and write a deep, heartfelt message to go with your photo collage (or you could go for the sweet, funny tone. That always works too). Your Valentine will definitely treasure this simple, heartfelt present for a long time to come.
5. TEDDY BEAR AND BALLOONS
Do you feel like announcing to the world that you love your Valentine? Like a huge banner flying across the sky is the perfect way to express your feelings? Well, that may be, but it’s pretty expensive too. Instead of breaking your bank on a huge romantic gesture, you can deliver your Valentine a gigantic teddy bear and a bunch of balloons. That’s right: Take it straight to their house, or even to school if you’re bold enough! A big, happy present like a humongous stuffed animal and a bundle of fun balloons will result in your Valentine hugging you, grinning, and probably even blushing – out of pure happiness, that is, not embarrassment…well, maybe a little. Go big, or go home! #
