Oh, Valentine's Day. Some love it, some loathe it. We can understand the loathing: trying to make Valentine's Day dinner reservations is a nightmare, it's easy to stress out over finding the perfect Valentine's Day gift for him or for her, and the whole day can feel a bit commercialized and insincere. But Valentine's Day doesn't have to be about some big, romantic, expensive gesture reserved for a girlfriend/boyfriend/wife/husband!
We see Valentine's Day as an opportunity to get creative and show the people you love that you care about them.
Here's our list of 4 unique ideas for presents this Valentine's Day:
Want to Give the Gift of Fitness?
Fitbit Activity Tracker
Did your significant other/partner/parent/friend set a new year's resolution to be healthier in 2017? We're one month down and 11 months to go, so now is the best time to help the special someone in your life stay on track to make their resolution a reality.
A FitBit is a thoughtful and original Valentine's Day present that shows that you care about your significant other's health, wellbeing, and goals. Even if your loved one already has an activity tracker, FitBit's newly released 2.0 trackers and watches are a great excuse to upgrade!
Want to Give The Gift of Safety?
Papago Dash Cam
The people closest to you rely on driving every day to get where they need to go. It’s unlikely that every time your loved ones get behind the wheel they get in a car accident, but they still wear their seatbelt every time they drive… right? Think of driving with a dash cam just like wearing a seatbelt; it’s there to protect your loved ones when it matters the most.
If the important people in your life have a dash cam in their vehicles and they witness a car accident or they are in an accident themselves, they will have the peace of mind that they have the evidence they need to protect themselves. Giving a vehicle camera as a gift this Valentine’s Day is a powerful way to show that you care!
There are a lot of dash cams out there, but a Papago dash cam is one of the best introductory car camera brands that is cheap in price but not cheap in quality, making it a perfect gift option.
Want to Give to a Cause?
Donate in your Valentine’s Name
Whether it be animals, conservation, supporting our veterans, or supporting the shooting sports, there’s an issue that your significant other is passionate about. Show your valentine (or your parents, friends, or co-workers) that you care by supporting their cause through a charitable donation in their name.
Want to Give Experiences, Not Things?
National Park Service Annual Pass
Did you know that the National Park Service offers an annual pass? An $80 pass will grant your loved one entrance to over 2,000 federal parks around the U.S. all year long. The National Park service offers several pass options that you can purchase online, including a $10 lifetime pass for seniors and a free access pass for individuals with disabilities.
How original would it be to give an annual pass to your parent or to a friend with a park map and an invitation to take a road trip? How romantic would it be to give your partner an annual pass with a bucket list of the top 10 National Parks you want to visit together that year? Our work here is done.
We hope these 4 unique gift ideas inspire you to think outside the box to find an original and meaningful present for your special someone this Valentine’s Day.
