The ultimate Valentine’s Day gift basket for your partner
February 7, 2023
Love is in the air with Valentine’s Day right around the corner. Until you realize that you have no idea what to get your significant other. If you want to be creative, however, then you need to think outside the box, or basket. These are the five essentials you need in your basket to make your partner feel the real cupid magic.
Chocolate (a classic)
Heart-shaped boxes of chocolate, to be specific, is a given. I personally love them because of the variety of chocolates that are included. It is a representation of love because it includes substances that ignite desire in your partner, which can lead them to be more open to romance. Plus, chocolate is everyone’s best friend.
If you want to really show how much you love your partner, then this is the way to go. You could either go the traditional route and write a classic love letter, or, my personal favorite: Get a jar and fill it with little love notes or the things you love about them. You’ll be named partner of the year for this.
Plan an activity
This is the perfect way to add more dates to both of your calendars. You could get tickets to their favorite sports team, favorite artist/band or a classic movie date for a new release. Get creative and have fun with it. The more activities the two of you do together, the closer you’ll be and the more memories you’ll share together.
Self care supplies
Whether it’s for hair care, skincare or a candle to make your room smell good, you really can’t go wrong. It conveys you care for them and their overall well being. If you want to take it to another level, throw in some face masks and turn it into a spa date night. There’s nothing better than getting quality time with your significant other while also treating your skin. It’s a win-win.
This should be the star of your basket as it should be something personal you and your significant other share. It could be an inside joke the two of you have, an item your partner has wanted for a while or something important to you that you want to share with them. Sentimentals can help you feel closer to your partner and deepen your connection with them.
