Still not all that keen on Valentine’s Day dinner at your favorite COVID-friendly restaurant? No problem. You can fill this classic picnic bag that is designed to hold your meal, some extras, and a bottle of wine with two glasses. Find a nice quiet park where you can social distance from everyone including the office and home and indulge in a picnic just for two. It can be very romantic, and the setting can be on the beach or even your back yard under a giant shade tree. If your area is covered in snow, you can create a picnic on the floor surrounded with candles!
Training Duffel Bag
For the active partner, nothing makes a trip to the gym easier than having a large enough duffel bag to stash and carry all of your gear. The point behind a gym duffel bag is to give you a way to store and carry your belongings and gym clothes in one easy to carry vessel. Use the pockets inside or outside to hold your phone, store your glasses, your weight gloves, or whatever else needs to be at the ready with easy access. Stuff it with what you need and a wide carry strap makes hauling easy.
Breakfast Sandwich Maker
If you are thinking of surprising him or her with breakfast in bed, the Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker will tackle that chore and turn it into an easy task. All you do is stuff it with layers of what you would put in a hearty breakfast sandwich and let the maker do the rest of the work. When Valentine’s Day has passed, you can save time and money from having to hit a drive-thru on the way to the office with this handy and quick alternative. It makes great sandwiches for any time of the day including those late-night snack cravings.
Although it may not sound like the most romantic of Valentine’s Day gifts, socks are about as practical as it gets. If you have trouble finding the right gift he or she will use often, socks are near the top of that list. Everyone has a sock drawer that can use some new additions and a little bit of variety. As No Cold Feet mentions in their guide, Valentine’s socks can make a thoughtful and affordable gift. And who can’t use a new pair or two of socks?
Bond Touch Long Distance Couples Bracelet Set
Tired of social distancing? Sadly, that will continue to be with us for quite some time into the future. But if you can’t be with the one you love, if both of you are wearing these bracelets you will still be able to communicate with one another. When you touch the screen on your bracelet, it sends a vibration to the other bracelet. It’s a long-distance way of keeping in touch without the hassle of phone calls or video social media contact. And it’s a great Valentine’s Day gift idea.
