Do you feel pressure to do something for Valentine’s Day? I feel a mild need to participate in Valentine’s Day, but don’t necessarily do it on the 14th (no price gouging for me!) Most of my most treasured gifts center around genuine efforts and experiences. Of course I love my vintage Chanel purses (that would indeed be a fab gift!), but I love the idea of celebrating an occasion with something that can be shared by both people. My husband cooks for me for certain holidays or celebrations because he knows that I love his efforts in making the meal. I’ve been thinking about some of my other favorite gifts and wanted to share them with you as well.
Meaningful Valentine’s Day Gift ideas
Home Cooked Meal
We aren’t all meant to be chefs. But I think there’s nothing like a home cooked meal, especially when you can’t get a reservation! It can be easy as setting up a charcuterie platter and roasting some vegetables in the oven. However, you can dress it up with luxurious touches like truffle oil or add some unusual cheese and tropical fruits. You can also make a great, easy and even healthy dessert as well like chocolate date truffles. Go ahead and get inspired by your favorite chef!
Book a trip
I’m always happy to travel. My little one has been to San Francisco 4 times already! I think it’s always a good idea to explore a new place and culture together. You get to try new foods and get to unwind together. If you can’t get out of town, play tourist in your town. See a play, visit the museum, or catch some live music.
