Giving gifts on Valentine’s Day can be tricky. Everyone’s different, and maybe your significant other isn’t a fan of the usual gifts celebrations. Here are some fun and unique ways to show your love this Valentine’s Day.

Go for a classic

Some people are all about the pink hearts and teddy bears, so if your beloved is one of them, sticking to the classics can be just the thing. Go all out with flowers, chocolates, a stuffed animal—the whole nine yards. If you’re looking for a little something extra, stop by Fredericks of Hollywood to find that perfect outfit for a night to remember.

Plan a romantic evening

If your loved one isn’t a fan of things, take them on a memorable outing. Book a couple’s spa day, or a meal at a fancy restaurant (or both!). Sometimes doing things and making memories together as a couple can be more meaningful than an object you can give, so check out some fun and romantic places to go in your city and treat them to it. Make sure to have a plan and book tickets, parking and have all necessary provisions to make sure the night runs smoothly.

Give a joke gift

If your partner isn’t that into Valentine’s Day or just has an out-there sense of humor, a gag gift is just the thing to lighten the mood and have a laugh together. Check out sites like Spencer’s for silly and fun gifts that show you care without being too serious or cheesy.

Find fun, free events

Another potential problem with Valentine’s Day is the budget—how to afford everything you want to give them? A fun alternative is finding or creating something free that the two of you can do together. Take a picnic with some candles and wine or cook dinner together and watch a romantic movie.
