Inexpensive Experience Gifts to Surprise Him on Valentine’s Day
- Make him a gift. Sometimes the perfect gift just doesn’t exist out on the internet marketplace. Making a thoughtful DIY gift is a great way to say “I love you" without having to pay a premium for custom goods.
- Catch a drive-in movie. Sure, you could stream at home, but you can do that anytime. If you've got a drive-in close to you, pack up your favorite car-friendly snacks and capture the movie-going experience for much cheaper than an indoor theater.
- Cook a meal at home. If you feel confident in your food skills, consider skipping the reservations and eating a nice meal at home. It’s sure to be a memorable experience for you both.
- Game night. If you aren’t much of a gamer, create the surprise of the century by joining your guy in a board/video game night this year. They’ll love and appreciate that you’re joining them in something they like to do, and who knows? You might surprise yourself and have some fun in the process!
- Scavenger hunt. Take a trip down memory lane by compiling a list of clues leading to objects, locations, or even phrases that mark some of your favorite moments in your relationship. For some extra fun, don’t run off in separate directions – have both partners add to the list and complete it together.
