9 Thoughtful Valentines Day Gift Ideas

Flowers & Chocolate

You may think this is too obvious of a choice to include but you'd be wrong. Guys, if you’re reading this, when she says “Let’s not do anything big for valentines day this year”, this does not mean you don't still have to get her flowers and chocolate. Flowers and chocolate are the minimum.

A Handwritten Letter

In the age of technology, text messages, and 140 character tweets, take the time to hand write your loved one a letter about all the reasons you care for them. They’ll appreciate the sentiment.

Adopt a Zoo Animal in Their Name

At Potter Park Zoo, you can adopt an animal by making a special donation to an individual animal which will pay for their care and enrichment. You will also receive an 8" x 10" color adoption certificate, a fact sheet about your animal, a candid color photo of your newly adopted friend, and have your name listed on the Zoo Adoption Honor Roll. You can choose from any animal in the park like lions, penguins, or red pandas!

Garden Seeds

Let love grow! Seeds to plant a garden come springtime are the gift that will keep on giving. First, you’ll spend time planting and tending to the seeds, and then you can make delicious meals with the vegetables or fruits that you’ve grown!

A Book/Audio Book Membership

Books are never the wrong gift to give! Your Valentine will love the fact that you took the time to find a story for them to enjoy. Consult the New York Times Best Sellers list for ideas or if your Valentine is on the go a lot, consider getting them an audio book subscription so they can listen in their car!

Take A Trip

Visit a sleepy up north town on Lake Michigan like Charlevoix or Petoskey, or take a trip to a museum like the MSU Museum or the Broad Art Museum. Shaking things up and changing your surroundings can be healthy for a relationship and feel like a mini vacation!

See a Show/Play

See what's playing at the Wharton Center at MSU, the Williamston Theatre, or at one of the many theaters in Detroit. An evening of live entertainment is always fun!

A Succulent Plant

A perfect little piece of nature to brighten up your loved one’s work desk. Plus, they don’t require a green thumb to keep alive thankfully. You can find planted succulents at most grocery stores in the flowers/plants section.
