Are you tired of the same old Valentine’s Day gifts like chocolate and flowers? You aren’t alone, and you don’t have to depend on the same boring gifts for your honey pie. We brewed up a batch of healthy, unique gift ideas for your special Valentine. Try one of these and you are sure to make your health conscious partner smile.
1. Forever Plants
Instead of spending too much money on a dozen roses that will die in a week, how about buying your sweetie a rose bush or a tree you can plant in your backyard? This way you aren’t killing anything to show your love and you are also giving them a gift that they can watch grow as they nurture and care for it. A plant is also a great symbol of what it takes to keep a happy, healthy couple blossoming.
2. Dance Lesson
Don’t make reservations at a fancy restaurant like everyone else. Choose something fun and different this year and sign up for a couple’s dance lesson. You may find that the two of you are as compatible on the dance floor as you are in life. If both of you end up with two left feet, then you’ll at least get a good laugh. Who can beat that? You are sure to be a hit with this gift idea.
3. Make Dinner
Opt for staying in this Valentine’s Day. You will save money and get a chance to tap into your creative side, which will really make your Valentine feel special. Find your partner’s favorite healthy meal on Pinterest and make a healthy dinner in. Decorate the house and light some candles set the mood. Or find a recipe you both love and prepare a romantic meal together.
4. Fitness Class
Spend some time looking for a fun fitness class the two of you can attend, like yoga, kickboxing, Zumba or even a spin class. Make a little invitation and give it to your honey. You can even buy them a workout outfit that they can wear to the class. Taking a fitness class together will help you burn calories and have fun together. For even more of an adventure, buy your love a fitted membership and try out all types of different gyms and workouts!
5. Give Back
Give your Valentine the gift of a heart that’s too big to fit their bed at night. Volunteering your time to help those less fortunate than you increases feel-good chemicals, gives you a sense of pride and blesses others. Set up a time when the two of you can volunteer together this Valentine’s Day. There are plenty of places looking for volunteers such as a retirement home who would love a thoughtful, loving visit from you and your sweetie.
The best gifts for any season are ones that are well thought out. Be creative this Valentine’s Day and offer your Valentine a healthy gift that will show you really care.
