The season of love often inspires the all-important question – what to get for a Valentine’s Day gift?
Every relationship is different, and the types of gifts that are right for you will differ as well. Whether you’re shopping for your boyfriend or girlfriend, husband or wife, the Costco Photo Centre has Valentine’s Day gift ideas to help spread the love this year.
1. A Valentine’s Day Adventure
The key to a great Valentine’s Day is spending quality time together. Plan a unique adventure for the two of you – like a cozy winter picnic at a quiet spot with a great view, or a date at the theatre that plays vintage romance flicks. Share the plans in your card and include a few cute photo prints and favourite snacks for a special touch.
2. Gift a Piece of Personalized Art
One of the greatest gifts you can give your significant other is one that celebrates your relationship. Track down one of your favourite photos together or the best shot from your recent getaway and turn it into art for your place. Choose to create canvas prints for a classic winner, or opt for custom metal prints for a true showstopper.
3. Something Sweet for Valentine's Day
Everyone loves a treat, but that doesn’t have to be a heart-shaped box of chocolates. How about a delicious breakfast in bed or a homemade dessert – paired with a meaningful photo gift that’s even sweeter.
- Photo puzzles: Piece together a special memory with a custom jigsaw puzzle
- Photo mugs: Share some warmth on Valentine’s Day morning by pouring them a cup of coffee in a personalized mug
- Water bottle: Turn a cute photo of you two into a personalized water bottle they can bring anywhere
4. Commemorate Your Relationship
Been together for a while? Compile photos that mark the milestones of your relationship into a custom photo book. Fill it with heartfelt captions that describe what each moment meant to you, and keep a few tissues on hand.
Valentine’s Day isn’t just about tangible gifts. Even if just for the day, what can you do to make your partner’s life easier. Offer to be their door-to-door chauffer as they take on a list of errands, treat them to a massage or pedicure, wrangle the kids while they sleep in, or surprise them by hand-washing the car.
The secret to Valentine’s Day isn’t extravagant. It’s about determining the gesture that will mean the most to the person you love.
