It’s that time of the year again; Valentine’s Day. It’s not all about cute couples and gifts for someone special, though. It’s important to remember that on this day, there is no harm in treating yourself and giving yourself a gift to make yourself feel special.
So, whether you’re in a long-term relationship, have just started seeing someone or you’re happy and single and need a little pick-me-up, we have some special gift ideas that are simple and easy and sure to please anyone.
A Dinner Date
One of the easiest “gift” ideas around. Take yourself or a loved one to that new restaurant in town you’ve been dying to try out! Try a new venue and avoid going somewhere you always go to. Make the night a bit different and exciting!
Ever tried Ethiopian food? Maybe now is a great time to try it out! This will be a perfect night if coupled with good conversation and attention to your loved one. You can have a chat about goals, how you’ve really been feeling and what you enjoy most about your time together.
One thing to note; Don’t spend the night on your phones. Use this time together to connect. Avoid the usual schedule talk, chatting about the kids or work. Immerse yourself in each other and enjoy a distraction-free, relaxing dinner together.
Head To The Movies
A good way to finish the night off after a lovely meal is to head to the movies. A relaxing night out is a great gift for any person. The movie doesn’t even have to be the best thing you’ve ever seen. Depending on your partner and their love language, it may even just be nice to watch the movie and hold hands and just feel the togetherness of the date. A classic dinner date and movie night is always a winner.
Candles are a beautiful addition to any home or office. But, you make them even better if they are aromatherapy candles. These candles utilise essential oils to infuse the candle with scents to help you to unwind or uplift your senses.
If you or your partner is always working and they could do with a candle to help them relax, this candle will be a real hit. Or, if you want a candle to help spice things up, this candle is the one to choose.
If you want to make it special, run a bath for your loved one with their favourite bubble bath or salts, light the candle in the bathroom and treat them to a glass of wine as they relax.
Skin Care Products
If you know what you’re partner needs for their skin or whether you’re looking to treat your skin, an organic skincare set may be just the key. Organic skincare is great for all skin types. If you’re not sure what to choose, a mini set of an everyday serum and facial oil like this one is a good choice. These products aim to help your skin repair, feel soothed, moisturised and protected.
Organic Skincare Workshop
If you or your partner loves looking after their skin, give them a unique gift of participating in a make-your-own organic skincare workshop. Held on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, you can experience a one-on-one workshop with Aly who will go through the whole process of basic natural skincare formulation. You can even work on discovering the best ingredients for your skin type.
This workshop offers an interesting and fun experience for you or your partner and you also get to take your creations home with you. This is the perfect gift for that person who seems to have everything!
Valentine’s Day is all about showing the people in your life that you care. It’s also a great day to make sure you’re treating yourself right and are giving yourself enough self-care. Whatever you decide to do this Valentine’s Day, choosing a different and interesting gift that is thoughtful and caring will always go a long way. Happy Valentine’s Day!
