Although it seems like the holidays were yesterday, another one is right around the corner: it’s time to start thinking about Valentine’s Day! ‘Tis the season to spoil your loved ones—and yourself—with gifts, affection and a hearty dose of relaxation. With that in mind, read on for our favorite Valentine’s treats sure to help recipients unwind—and focus on what really matters.
There’s really no way to say “I love you” like a gift that lets them enjoy an hour and a half of stress-melting bliss, sans phone or other distractions. Need more convincing? Massages are much more than just relaxing—they also improve flexibility, prevent muscle injuries, boost the immune system, and reduce the effects of long hours sitting at a desk working. We know what you’re thinking, and yes, you should absolutely book one for yourself, too.
Whatever happened to good ole mixed tapes to show your feelings? We vote for a modern revitalization of this classic romantic gesture. Make your sweetheart a playlist with songs that make you think of them—they can listen all day, and they’ll think of you the whole time. Bonus: unlike the mixed tapes of old, there’s no limit to the amount of songs you can put on your playlist, so let the good music roll.
Instagram shots are cute and fun for scrolling, but there’s nothing like real life prints you can look at everyday to remind you of all the good times you’ve had. Print out your favorites and add them to an album with heartfelt captions for a gift that will definitely make them smile every time they see it.
At the end of the day, just remember that whatever you decide to gift your other half, it’s the the thoughtfulness you put into it that really counts. Happy Valentines Day!
