A romantic, candle-lit table for two is never a bad thing. But sometimes, a change of scenery is just what you need to celebrate your love for another. This year, try one of these unconventional Valentine’s Day dates.
Instead of sitting in front of a movie theatre screen, plan a date where you and your partner can be active. Sip hot cocoa and work on your axles at the local ice skating rink. Or, take a rock-climbing class at a local facility.
If you and your partner are a little less athletic and a little more creative, look for different classes offered in your area. You might try painting, sculpting, writing or even all three. If you both have a love for good food, a couples cooking class might even start a new Friday night tradition.
Have an Indoor Take-Out Picnic
Instead of making reservations at a busy restaurant, create your own ambient restaurant at home. Lay blankets on the floor of your living room and set up candles and your favorite romantic music. Then, order your favorite take-out and pick up a nice bottle of wine or two and have a romantic night in.
Since the holidays are a time of giving, it’s important to find the right gifts for the loved ones in your life. If your loved one happens to love cars, then we have some great gift ideas for you. Here are some perfect holiday gifts for car lovers that will work with any budget.
Speedometer cufflinks. Cufflinks are always a great gift for the men in your life, especially if they tend to wear suits. If this man also happens to love cars, then buying a pair of cufflinks that look like a car’s speedometer are a great gift idea. Allow the cufflinks to speak to the gift recipient’s love of vehicles, even when he’s in the conference room making a pitch.
GoPro. Every racer wants to get better, which is why a GoPro camera is a top-notch choice if you have a slightly larger holiday gift budget than normal. This action-ready camera can be used in a multitude of ways, including being used to film leg and hand movements while a driver is going around the track. This allows them to see how to improve their driving skills, therefore improving their time. What better gift than a better lap?
Driving school. Racetracks around the United States have a number of driving schools that will fulfill any racecar lover’s dream. No matter what type of racing your car lover enjoys, you are likely to find a school that will cater to it. These schools are expensive, though, so keep that in mind if you decide to give your car enthusiast the gift of driving.
