A beautiful holiday of love is around the corner. Some people criticize it saying that all the Valentine’s Day gifts have made the holiday commercialized and that we should celebrate love any day we wish not just on February 14. Well, WOWnGO agrees that Valentine’s Day is not the only time when you can or should express your romantic feelings, however, it often happens that because of all the duties of daily life we tend to forget about this. Thus, we believe that it is so great to have some reminder, which in this case, is Valentine’s Day.
While most of you probably already know the history and reasons behind this day, we’d like to give some hints on how to make this holiday special. Gifts certainly aren’t the most important things in a relationship but it is one of the thoughtful ways of expressing love. We’ll give you some of the gift ideas for Valentine’s Day and some recommendations on how you can spend this day.

Valentine’s Day Gifts for Her

A romantic retreat for two is a perfect option if you want to spend this day together in an unusual way.
Makeup workshop: Is she interested in professional makeup? maybe she just wants to learn to do her perfect everyday makeup and find out more about skincare? A makeup workshop or a series of makeup classes is the kind of Valentine’s Day gift which ticks the box.
Spa to get a facial: all females would love to have healthy skin face. Giving your wife or a girlfriend a Valentine’s Day gift card for facial treatment will make her glow with happiness. A gift card can be used for skincare advice, relaxing elemental and advanced facials and some other health services like makeup, hair tinting, hair waxing and many more.

I bet, the gift will be even better if you go there together. So, you got the idea but if it happens that he literally has everything or you just ran out of ideas (after you’ve given him so many gifts), WOWnGO is here to lend a helping hand.
Food-Tasting: ever heard of the saying “A way to a man’s heart is through his stomach?”. However arguable it might be, men are never against some delicious food.

Affordable Valentine’s Day Gifts

Gift Card for Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada: explore astonishing galleries that feature the underwater world from different parts of the world. Come close and see some amazing fishes, discover new jaw-dropping species, learn more about ocean wildlife and just feel as if you were a real ocean explorer. By the way, if you feel like staying at home on the V-Day 2022, you can explore the Aquarium through the screen of your laptop.
Paint Pouring Session: if your partner is far away from being a die-hard romantic and you want him/her to pour out their feelings more often, give an experience that helps open and unwind. Paint pouring is an unconventional painting method where you just let the paint flow, mix the colors and get a unique flowing pattern at the end.
Ticket to Museum of Illusions: we’re strongly convinced that anyone who’s never been here yet, should do it! This is the place where you can pause the reality and challenge your brain because your eyes will see something your brain will not understand. As a matter of fact, the Museum of Illusions is not only a fun place but also a place where you get to know some amazing facts and learn to better understand the world around you.
Indoor Skydiving (Take-off experience): an equally great Valentine’s Day gift idea for him and for her. If your partner loves thrilling experiences, thinks that he/she was a bird in their previous life, floating in the air is the best experience gift idea.
