While gift giving trends have shifted towards experiential options, nothing can replace the feeling of opening up something tangible from a loved one. Spoil and surprise your partner this Valentine’s Day with something to accompany and heighten an amazing experience.
We know gift-giving on Valentine's Day can be daunting, so we've curated this list of highly-considered gifts, which are both wonderful on their own or used to accessorize an adventure. Consider the five senses––sound, sight, taste, smell, and touch––and opt for gifts that enrich the trips and activities you’ll plan together. It’s hard to go wrong with essentials, so stick to things he’ll need now and forever.
