Get Creative on February 14th

Valentine’s Day is less than a month away. February 14th has become a 19.7 billion high pressure holiday of gift giving. Typical gifts include: jewelry, candy, flowers, food & beverage, clothing and more. But just how important is Valentine’s Day? According to, 53% of women say they would end their relationship if they didn’t get a gift on Valentine’s Day.

Cancel out the Valentine’s Day consumerism and noise and do something a little different this year. Gifts also come in the form of experiences:

  1. Be a tourist in your own home – Many days we are all so busy that we don’t get the chance to appreciate our local neighborhoods and cities. Spend Valentine’s Day experiencing something new at home.
  2. Get active. Try something a little more laid back with a round of bowling or a game of golf.
  3. Enjoy the outdoors. – Take a ride to the beach or to the park and enjoy hot tea or a bottle of wine and watch the sunrise or sunset.
  4. Stay in. – Find a new recipe, grab a nice bottle of wine, pop a movie in or turn on some music and enjoy a relaxing night at home.
  5. Try something new. – Do something you’ve never done before; horseback riding, yoga, camping. You may just find your next hobby!

Who says Valentine’s Day is only for couples? Even if you are single, grab a group of friends and creative!
