Whether you love getting in the romantic spirit or despite the “Hallmark holiday”, February 14th is just around the corner. There’s nothing wrong with giving flowers, chocolate, or jewelry to your sweetheart for Valentine’s Day. But why not give the gift of an experience that you can do together to bring you closer together?

At FunSherpa, we have a variety of romantic gifts that are perfect for Valentine’s Day, or any time of year to show your loved one that you care. These are a few of the creatively romantic Valentine’s Day gift ideas that we’re most excited about this year:

Relaxing and Romantic Boat Cruises

What better way to kick back and relax with the one you love than from the comfort of a luxury boat with crashing waves setting the mood for romance? Kick Valentine’s Day off right with a morning skyline cruise to feel the fresh morning breeze on your skin and marvel at the beauty of the skyline and a colorful sunrise. If your sweetheart isn’t a morning person, try an afternoon delight cruise to watch fishermen reel in their catches and let the tranquil water relieve your daily stresses.

Food and Wine Tastings

Treat your sweetheart’s palate to the luxurious and gourmet with a food and wine tasting. Purchase a wine tasting and food pairing experiential gift and learn about chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, pinor noir,cabernet sauvignon, and other fine wines. These fun and informative tasting sessions pair wines with cheese, beets, fruits, chocolates, and other delicious foods that complement the flavors of wine. To add a little culture and exercise to your tasting experience, try a food and cultural walking tour. You and your better half can eat your way through the city’s most celebrated culinary landmarks and go behind the scenes to sample some of the city’s lesser-known cuisine.

Horseback Riding Lessons

If your valentine loves to try new activities, consider taking a horseback riding lesson together. Horseback riding has a certain old world charm to it that brings you back to a simpler time and place. Escape the hectic hustle of city life and feel the serenity of a well-groomed trail and nature at its finest. If this is your first time riding a horse, you’ll probably want to sign up for a guided lesson to ensure the safety of you and your horse.

The best gifts are those that inspire you to be the best version of yourself. Don’t settle for generic, tried-and-true gifts this Valentine’s Day. Carriage rides, kayak tours, chocolate tastings, and dance lessons are also great ideas for any occasion. Give the gift of experience and build memories with your loved one that will last a lifetime.
