Valentine’s Day is almost here, and whether you love it or hate it, this big day is virtually impossible to avoid. If you are still struggling with what to get your special someone, here are some outside-of-the-box, unique Valentines day gifts ideas from APG&E employees.
Unique Valentines Day Gifts
Nothing says I love you like capturing your memories. Whether it is finally downloading those vacation pictures or the dog’s birthday party, this unique Valentines day gift has been a winner for more than one team member!
These pint glasses are a great addition to any baseball fan’s collection. They were recently given as a birthday gift for a super-fan but would be perfect for Valentine’s Day as well!
Several of our team members have indicated that they would love to get these for Valentine’s Day. They have high reviews online and appear to be selling pretty fast. Let us know if they taste as good as they look.
If traditional flowers are more your style, but you are looking for something a little different, go for a beautiful hydrangea or mixed bouquet. Roses tend to increase in price in February and make up the vast majority of Valentine’s Day gifts already. Or maybe send something that they will enjoy growing themselves such as flowering bulbs.
Tickets to an Art Museum
Spending time together is one of the best gifts and what better place to be together than surrounded by beautiful and thought-provoking art. Consider dining in the museum café during your visit, as many of these serve delicious food.
Dump the wine of the month club and go for something your significant other really needs, coffee! Once your valentine receives their subscription, a brief survey will help them pick their perfect coffee. We have several people in our office who love this service and the excitement that each shipment brings. The best part – you can cancel at any time!
Set up a photoshoot with your significant other
With cameras being digital now, this is not as pricey as you might think. A team member was surprised by her husband with an entire day of fun-filled locations to celebrate their anniversary.
For the collectors in your life, how about finally splurging on that oh-so-desirable Pokémon card or rare Optimus Prime action figure they have wanted for years.
Warm chocolate chip cookies, is there really anything else that needs to be said? Tiff's Treats is not available in our entire reading area but, warm chocolate chip cookies, had to be included in the list! And for those outside of Texas, Cheryl's has delicious cookies that care also delivered straight to your door (and they have great sales!).
Don’t forget to get Valentines day gifts for friends and neighbors on Valentines as well! Sometimes the best gift is a simple card to let that special someone know you are thinking of them!
If these suggestions don’t meet your fancy, you can do what I do and wait for the candy to go on sale! Nothing says I love you for the long haul more than fiscally responsible Valentines day chocolate!
