I don’t know about you, but when I’m trying to think of Valentine’s Day gifts, I always come up short. It isn’t exactly appropriate to give elaborate electronic gifts nor is it the time to give furniture or other practical gifts. While chocolate, lingerie, and any variety of passion inducing items are good, sometimes it’s more fun to think outside the box and bring something new to the relationship table.
For the most part, every major city is represented on this site. Whether you live in Oregon, California, New York, or any state in between, you can find unique experiences to give to your loved one this Valentine’s Day. What I enjoy the most looking through this site is that the prices are very reasonable. For a two person experience gift, you can spend less than $100, and that matters a lot to me. Not to mention, you get to see real, honest reviews of people who have purchased the gift, so you know exactly what you are getting involved in.
While this site doesn’t have every city to choose from, if you happen to be in any of the major cities that they do offer experience gifts in, you are in for a treat. This site stands out from the rest in the amount that they offer – they can offer the inexpensive gifts to the extravagant and you are still getting a wonderful time no matter which one you choose.
This is another website that doesn’t have a wide variety of choices, but just like Excitations, if you happen to see your city listed on this site, you are in luck. What I appreciated the most through this site is once you do select your city, you can browse the experience according the type of experience you want to have. Want a romantic experience? Something under $100? Want to be creative? They’ll have it!
This is yet another buy an experience for a great deal site. The reason this one stands apart is that nearly (nearly) every state is represented. And for the most part, in each state, some of the smaller suburb cities that may be a bit further away from that major central city can be found here as well. Also, this is another one that has a lot of cheaper experiences to buy, so you don’t have to break the bank to have a good time.
This site seems to represent the upper east coast, primarily the New England area, but for those of you who live in the area, you are in for a treat. This site really caters to each specific neighborhood in that area, so if you happen to get cheated out of purchasing one of the usual experience gifts, you will want to check out this site.
As the title of the site seems to suggest, this is more for the gift giver that is willing to spend just a little more for their gift. The majority of the gifts you will find on this site lean towards the $200 range. Although they do have some gifts that are less, more than likely, the better gifts are in the higher prices. But if you are willing to pay a little extra, you have some pretty amazing choices to choose from.
This is another site that seems to be very selective with which cities it decides to show, but you may be interested in this site if you happen to be in the international areas of the world. Sites like Berlin, Paris, or Buenos Aires have gift choices you can purchase, so if you happen to be in that part of the world anyways on Valentine’s Day, this is a site worth checking out.
Okay, so the aspect of this website is that you are truly giving a person a unique gift to them. This can also mean you don’t have to go along, For example, you can give them the money for a tattoo they’ve always been wanting, or a store they’ve been meaning to go to. The website simply sends the gift, and they receive the cash and can spend the money.
While every state may not be represented, the wonderful thing about this site is how much variety they have to offer with the gifts they suggest. Also, more international locations are represented here. This is one site that I’ve seen the most variety of experiences on too. This goes far beyond the usual wine tours that I tend to see everywhere.
I’m sure you’ve heard of this site, but you’ve probably forgotten about it by now. Groupon has not gone away, it is still alive and well. What I like about the Groupon getaway gifts is that it is truly a getaway. You can buy a full on trip with Groupon and somehow that ease of stress makes me just as happy as the loved on I’m planning for.
