Whether that means planning a special outing or getting all dressed up to watch Netflix on the couch, the beauty of V-Day is that is what you make of it. Extravagant or simple, it's the thought that counts...but that doesn't mean you can't think outside the box!
Today on Zeena Uncovered, we've decided to dig a little deeper when it comes to gift giving with an inspirational post designed to give your Valentine some extra attention. If you’re in the mood for something other than traditional presents, keep scrolling for our list of 5 Valentine's Day gift ideas that will certainly steal their heart. After all, we’ve been cooped up in the house since 2020. Isn’t it time to shake things up?
#1 Surprise Them with a Couples Photo Session
Need a reason to get all dressed up? A couples photo session might just do the trick. Pick a location, such as a nearby park, monument, or your own backyard and create memorable photos of you and your special someone. Do a little research if you need a permit beforehand. If you have a favorite photographer in mind, remember to book early. Sessions might fill up quickly, so claim your spot in advance. Now, all you need is to smile for the cameras!
#2 Make a Mix Tape
Looking for a gift that is sentimental, yet totally unexpected? Why not go retro by making an original mixtape? The beauty of this gift is that no one does it anymore! Tell your own love story with one memorable song after another with a soundtrack that's truly yours. Include music from your wedding, first date or even songs you used to sing to as teenagers. This is one gift that is sure to light up their day.
#3 Deck Out the House
Sure, there's nothing suspicious about sending your partner on an errand or two for the morning, especially when it's Valentine's Day! While they’re out, secretly transform your home into a romantic oasis. Fill the room with heart balloons and light some scented candles. Order cupcakes or their favorite takeout dish. With fresh flowers, string lights and a few personal touches, you can turn your home into a one of a kind tunnel of love!
#4 Adopt a Pet
Surprise them with something else to cuddle (besides you)! Instead of purchasing a pet from a breeder or pet shop, discover your new fur baby at a local animal shelter. In the DMV alone, there are thousands of cats, rabbits, birds and puppies that need loving homes. Adoption is a surefire way you’ll do some good this Valentine’s Day, while making the one you love very happy.
#5 Dine Inside an Igloo
Feel posh and protected in your own private igloo! The Winter Igloos at the Watergate are a dream come true for your special snow bunny. Many D.C. restaurants are winterizing this season by adding special heated outdoor units so that you can social distance in style inside a yurt, tent, igloo or greenhouse.
Here’s a list of our favorite spots:
