Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas (That Aren’t Jewelry Or Chocolate)

Updated: Apr 22

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner so it’s time to start thinking about the perfect gift! Sure Valentine’s Day was invented by greeting card companies, but it’s still a nice opportunity to reflect on the love you share and do something nice for your special someone. Whether you’ve been dating for a few months or you’ve been married for a few decades, here are some ideas that will let them know you care.

Cooking Class Date Night

Do you and your sweetheart enjoy trying new recipes and cooking together? Then this is the perfect gift! (Plus you get to enjoy it too!) A professional chef walks you through a recipe while you follow along at your own cooking workstation. They share tips and techniques on how to properly prepare the foods that you can use for future meal preparation. Then you get to enjoy the meal you created! Some classes even let you bring your own bottle of wine to pair with your food. Plus giving an experience as a gift means they’ll get to cherish the memories forever.

Relationship Retrospective Video

What better way to sum up your relationship than a collection of video memories? Piece together a collection of footage from the time you’ve shared. Concerts you’ve attended together, trips you’ve taken, funny moments captured on your phone, and relationship milestones. Then record yourself speaking to your partner, reflecting on your memories and letting them know what they mean to you.

Walking Food Tour

Be a tourist in your own city and get to enjoy local cuisine! A walking tour features curated samples from a lineup of local spots. Walk from restaurant to restaurant enjoying a taste from a variety of backgrounds, while getting to do a little sightseeing. It’s a fun way to meet people from around the world and learn some new things about your own neighbourhood. Plus you can go back to your favourite spots and enjoy the foods over and over again!

Thought-Provoking Question Games

These card games are a fun way to learn more about each other and dive into new discussion topics. Each card has a different question like “What is your first childhood memory?” or “Would you ever go to space?” There are also more couple specific games that ask questions like “What was your first impression of me?” or “Where do you want to go on our next date night?”

Some examples of these types of card games are The Hygge Game, Family Time Together, Our Moments and Let’s Get Closer. But just search conversation-starting card games and see which one best fits you and your partner!

Or home-make your own cards like Maya and Matt! Come up with questions specific to your relationship to give it a personal touch.



You can never go wrong with tickets to a favourite band, artist, theatre production, sports team or performer. They get to see someone they love and it gives you both something to look forward to. It also shows you care about their interests and want to share those with them. It gives you an opportunity to make new memories and enjoy each other’s company.

Thinking of giving the gift of a video retrospective and want a professional touch? We would love to help edit the video, film new components, and tell the beautiful story of your relationship! Contact DMS Video Productions today to learn more.
