Looking for the perfect gift for your significant other? I’ve got you covered! Giving gifts is one of my favorite things to do. A thoughtful gift goes a long way in creating love and positivity in your relationship, especially if your partner’s love language is receiving gifts.
I know, I know, a lot of you probably think Valentine’s Day is a commercial holiday created by flower shops around the nation to sell more roses. While that is a very valid concern, put away your “fight corporate America” badge for a moment and think about how happy your significant other will be when he/she receives a thoughtful gift from you that shows him/her that you put time and effort into making him/her feel special.
If you’re really dead set on rebelling against the pressure to be romantic on a random day in February, do something on the 10th to prove your point. But, do something please =)
Here are some ideas for gifts based on your partner’s specific love language. If you don’t know your partner’s love language (or your own), check out this blog post first.
Give The Gift of Quality Time
To someone whose love language is Quality Time, experiences are more meaningful than things. When you look back on your life, are you going to remember all the gadgets and fun stuff your significant other bought you over the years or are you going to remember the vacations you took and the new things you tried together? Most people say they remember the latter so here are a few suggestions for fun experiences to give your significant other.
- Tickets to a favorite sporting event
- Tickets to a play, the opera, a symphony, a musical, Cirque du Soleil show, etc.
- A weekend (or longer) getaway. Check out Groupon Getaways and LivingSocial Escapes for great travel deals.
- A cruise – these can be super cheap and easy to plan because they are all inclusive.
- Lessons to learn something new together – gift a flying lesson, a pottery class, a sip and paint class, a session with a boxing coach…the possibilities are endless!
- ClassPass – If you and your significant other like to try new workouts or want to get more into fitness, this is a great gift! Click here to get $$ off your 1st month.
- Gift certificate to a local spa for a couples massage and/or a facial
- Gift certificate to a favorite restaurant
- A couples photo shoot – this is a great experience to share together and it leaves you with memories that last a lifetime!
- Sessions for the 2 of you with a personal trainer, private yoga lessons, etc.
Words of Affirmation
- Write your partner a love letter
- Make a list of all the things you love about them
- Make a sweet social media post about how much you appreciate their presence in your life
- Give your partner a jar filled with 365 small pieces of paper, each with 1 thing you love about them written on it. One for each day of the year.
Acts of Service
- Clean the entire house (or hire a cleaning service). If you don’t live together, sneak in and clean his/her entire house
- Give him/her certificates to redeem for various household chores (e.g. this certificate entitles the holder to request the giver to do the dishes/take out the trash/rake the yard any time it is redeemed)
- Make his/her favorite meal AND do the dishes
- You could make this a week of giving by doing many acts of service such as grocery shopping, putting gas in his/her car, washing the car, doing the laundry, etc. The key here is to do these things without being asked
- Give your significant other a candlelit massage
- Give your significant other gift certificates for sexual acts (redeemable at any time)
- Blindfold your partner and kiss/lick/touch every part of their body from head to toe
This love language isn’t about how much you can spend, it’s about giving something thoughtful that you know matches your partner’s personality or has special meaning to him/her. Many of the gifts below will satisfy other love languages as well. For instance, many of the couples gifts will lead to spending quality time together or physical touch. Check out the gifts below – you are sure to find something for everyone on these lists.
