2. Class Pass Membership

Raise your hand high if you or someone you know is paying for a gym membership that you/they never use. Okay, now put your hand down because you’re in a coffee shop and you’re embarrassing us. Help a pal out by letting them get their exercise money’s worth while also trying out new gyms + workout studios in their city. Such a great way to diversify your workout + have fun in the process!

Some of our fave items to include: favorite snack, favorite candle, fun bath bomb, favorite lotion, favorite beverage, favorite movie, gift card to favorite store, plant, face mask, book, wine and/or kitchen utensils.

4. Customized Pet Book

Petlandia’s children’s book is the purr-fect gift for anyone with a dog, cat or rabbit. Design a custom book about your pal + their pal by entering basic information like pet’s name, owner’s name and where they live. From there, you can design a cartoon that looks just like their pet! Petlandia writers will create a story line around your valentine + their pet and mail you the personalized book.

5. Cooking Class or Hello Fresh

Now this is a Valentine’s gift we can really get behind because who are we kidding, we love food. However, it’s not often that we take the time to prepare a meal that doesn’t involve speed-dialing Papa John’s or throwing handfuls of whatever is currently in the fridge into the crock pot. Enter cooking date night. Opt for a night out and find a cooking class to take in your city or opt for a night in and try a meal subscription program like Hello Fresh. A fun way to spend time together + learn something new + eat (of course)!

Give the gift of travel! Send a friend some miles for them to use to book a trip or plan a vacay for you + your boo! Explore a magical new place together + try new foods all the while learning more about a new culture and more about each other. Not sure where to go?

8. Scavenger Hunt

You don’t have to leave the state or country to have a travel experience! Be a tourist in your own city by putting together a scavenger hunt. Not sure where to start? Check out Clue Town for pre-made scavenger hunt experiences (currently in Atlanta only).

9. Graze

Yes, yes another food box subscription, but what can we say, we love food! Especially snacks + this food box is specifically for snack-lovers! Healthy + nom-worthy snack boxes delivered right to your door. Know someone with sweet tooth? Give them the gift of candy with Candy Club! Same idea, but with a little less nut and a little more nougat.

Try a sampler box of Graze for free!

10. Concert Tickets

One thing we firmly believe is that you can never go wrong with gifting great experiences. Take a look at local ticketing agencies and check out the artists coming to your town. See a new band + fall in love with some new music together or see your favorite band + jam out to your favorite songs!

11. Vineyard Wine Tasting

You had us at wine. If you’re local to Atlanta, we highly recommend attending a wine tasting at Chateau Elan. Sample the wine made on their property while eating light bites + learning more about the wine making process. You’ll also get a tour of their beautiful facilities. No grape stomping this time of year unfortunately, but hey, you get wine!!!

12. Spa Day

Treat your valentine + yo’ self to the gift of relaxation and book a spa day! Massages are a great go-to, or you could also try something new like a mud bath or a chocolate bath.

13. A Puppy

I mean this one really speaks for itself.

14. Act of Kindness

By far our favorite gift option (yes, over the wine, the snacks + the puppies), get out + do something good! Volunteer together, donate to your valentine’s favorite charity, clean the house, do chores that your valentine would normally do. The smallest gestures can go a long way and really that’s what Valentine’s Day is all about! Showing the people you love most how much you care.

We hope you find these suggestions helpful! And remember, whilst Valentine’s Day is just one day, love should be spread year round. It’s the one thing in life that costs us nothing to give freely, but is worth so, so much. 🙂

Happy Gifting!
