Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas: Think Outside The Gift Box


Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Flowers are nice and chocolate is delicious, but if you really want to shine this holiday, planning an experience for your significant other is the way to go. In other words, think outside the gift box this Valentine’s Day. Start by booking a Soothe massage and add on any one of these experiences for a night to remember. 

Hire A Private Chef

Add an epicurean flair to date night at home. Have the table set, light candles, and pour two glasses of wine while a private chef prepares a meal in your own kitchen. Consider making their favorite meal or trying a cuisine that you’ve both been curious about. Dinner reservations are overrated anyway.

Take A Salsa Class

Test your chemistry with this flirtatious dance. It doesn’t matter if you’re not a dancer, let your passion fuel your fire. After all, salsa is said to be the most romantic of all dances.

Enjoy Live Music

Make memories while seeing a live performance. Surprise them with tickets to their favorite band or whisk them off to a sporadic show. Any style of music will do, it’s the experience that’s important.

Go Wine Tasting

Find a local vineyard or tasting room for a fun-filled day of wine tasting. Explore new varietals and discover a new favorite that you can enjoy together.

Unwind At Home

Order a couples massage to your home or book a luxurious hotel and make a night out of it. During a massage, your body releases a hormone called oxytocin, which is often called the ‘love hormone.’ This hormone primes your body and mind for bonding and affection, making it the perfect Valentine’s Day activity.

Jet Off On A Mystery Date

Plan a romantic getaway that will blow them away. To make the most of the surprise, don’t let them know where you’re headed somewhere until arriving at the airport. Fly private and you’ll be able to keep the secret going for longer.

Make Sushi Together

Immerse yourself in a culinary oasis with sushi making classes. Not only will this experience get you out of your comfort zone, but it’s a passion you can share together.

Follow this experiential guide for a perfect Valentine’s Day. Gifts are great, but memories last forever.  If you’re crunched for time, a Soothe Gift Card is an easy way to say be mine.
