Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, and if you still don’t have an idea on what to get your sweetheart, we’re here to help. We’ve put together a Valentine’s Day gift-giving guide to help you find the perfect way to show your hunny that you care.
And single folks, don’t leave just yet. We’ve got some creative ideas for how to celebrate your singleness this Valentine’s Day too.
We aren’t going to tell you the best place in Winter Garden to get flowers, or where to pick up one of those heart-shaped chocolate boxes. Instead, we wanted to list some ideas for gifts that were creative, unique and didn’t require constant watering and sunlight.
Some men are easy. Every holiday and birthday you get him the same thing, and he loves it just as much each time. Maybe it’s car accessories, or tools, or a crate full of beef jerky and beer. If you know he loves it, go for it. Getting him something you know he loves shows that you listen to him and you know what makes him happy. (Even if you think gettin the same gift over and over is boring!) However, if he’s one of those guys who has everything or is difficult to buy for, consider giving him an experience this Valentine’s Day instead of a physical gift:
Schedule a Winter Garden food tour so you can go experience a few different restaurants in Downtown Winter Garden. This Valentine’s Day, they’re offering a His and Hers Speciality Food Tour, a 65 minute sit-down tour featuring beer and wine, chicken and donuts, Gelato, cheese and truffles! Can your Valentine’s Day get any more delicious?
Winter Garden Wheel Works is offering a special 2-for-1 special on bikes for Valentine’s Day. If your guy enjoys spending time outdoors, why not rent a few bikes, zip down the trail, and stop for a picnic lunch when you’re hungry?
Wait until the sun goes down and schedule a bio-luminescent kayaking tour for two. Glide through the water and be surrounded by light! Not quite Winter Garden, but pretty close!
Go brewery hopping, starting at The Crooked Can and visiting Sun Creek Brewery in Clermont and Dead Lizard Brewery. Just don’t forget to call an Uber!
If you’ve never stayed at The Edgewater Hotel, Valentine’s Day (or the weekend after) would be a great time. Experience Historic Downtown Winter Garden, have dinner at the new and improved Attic Door and swing by Scoops for ice cream. You don’t have to spend a lot or go far to spend quality time with your man!
Women have this unique way of making it very clear about what they want for Valentine’s Day without using any details about what they want for Valentine’s Day. Pay close attention when she makes comments like “Susie just went to this calligraphy workshop and she loved it!” She’s not just telling you a story, she’s subtly dropping hints about things she is interested in and would love to try. Lucky for you, Winter Garden has an abundance of gifts and experiences to show your lady that you’ve been listening.
Get creative and sign up for a workshop at Driftwood Market. These intimate workshops take participants step by step to create a unique gift or project that they can bring home.
For something a little more unique, register for the Winter Garden Masquerade. Held the day after Valentine’s Day at the Winter Garden Pavilion downtown, you and your sweetie an enjoy food, drinks, and music in a masquerade-style party. Black tie or creative costumes encouraged.
If your sweet thang is into everything creative and artistic, you may have to pry her out of the KitLife store in Downtown Orlando. This locally owned stationary shop is your go-to for stationary, journals, planners, adorable accessories and more. If you aren’t sure what to pick, check and see if she has an online wishlist. She probably does.
A lot of women appreciate thoughtful yet practical gifts they can use in and around their home. Personalized home decor is a favorite Valentine’s Day gift, and can be custom made to match your sweetheart’s style. Wooden signs, mom-inspired coffee mugs, and custom tote bags show you’ve put thought and effort into a gift that is meaningful to her.
While we are confident that you and your sweetie play an equal role in maintaining the cleanliness and organization of your home, a little extra help never hurt. Consider scheduling 3-6 months of detailed cleaning services to come help with the house so she can spend more time doing the things she loves.
We know that Valentine’s Day can also feel like Single’s Awareness Day, but it can be a great excuse to do something fun, pamper yourself, or just go out with your friends. Orlando has a really cool single’s scene, ranging from a Naughty or Nice Party at Howl at the Moon in Orlando to more low-key options like drinking wine and painting with your girlfriends, or a massage at a Disney Resort. If you’re ready to get back out on the dating scene, walk down Plant Street with a cute puppy and watch the magic happen.
