Hate it or love it, Valentine’s Day is upon us for another year. Surprising your partner at work is one way to create memorable moments (and be the envy of the workplace!).
If you’re looking for more creative ways to surprise your partner, you’ve come to the right place! Put those overpriced roses on hold this year and think outside the (chocolate) box – that last one was bad, I know!
Here are seven Valentine’s Day gifts to surprise your loved one at work:
1) Indulge The Sweet-Tooth
Does your partner have a sweet tooth? Getting custom-made sweets delivered will go down a treat. If you know a shop your partner loves to indulge in, use a food delivery service such as Menulog and let them take care of the rest… Or if you are a full-blown romantic -deliver a large red velvet heart cake to your loved-one in person.
Cupcakes, shortbread, biscuits, cheesecakes or donuts – the options are limitless!
2) Brighten Up Work With An Air Plant
This one will get you points for creativity on Valentine’s Day. A low-maintenance air-plant injects life to what can be an otherwise sterile environment. Add an aura of freshness to one’s surroundings at work. This plant requires very little upkeep and is a pleasant addition to any space and a dainty ornament that will lighten up your partner’s environment long after Valentine’s Day.
3) Deliver An Engraved Pen
An engraved pen is a timeless gift that will have your partner thinking about you every time they write a note (ok, well maybe not ALL the time). A quality pen can last for decades, just like your love for each other. This classic gift also shows you respect their dedication to succeeding in their professional life. A must-have for any businessman or businesswoman!
4) Book a Babysitter
We love our kids, but sometimes we need a break (even if it’s only for a few hours!). Why not send a hand-written note to your partner at work letting them the kids are being looked after? Gobi and Sittr are two companies that help bring fully-vetted babysitters to your house.
This frees up you two lovebirds to make spontaneous plans for the night.
5) Jump Out Of A Plane Together
If your partner isn’t adverse to pushing his or her comfort zone, this gift might be perfect. Send a hand-written letter to your partner at work, letting them know the sky’s the limit when it comes to your relationship. There’s no mountain too high for you both!
Plus there’s nothing quite like the exhilaration of free-falling. Your partner will never forget this experience and assuming doesn’t have a fear of heights, will help strengthen your bond. RedBalloon has a range of couples options for skydiving.
Show your special one you can bring the excitement to their life with this memorable Valentine’s Gift.
6) Massage That Work-Stress Away
Work can be chaotic at times, and sometimes we need to stop and smell the roses. Call your partner’s boss and ask if you can treat your partner to an in-office massage over lunch break. Both table or chair massages are great options that work in any workplace.
If in-office massage is not possible, why not book a couple’s massage for the both of you? This way you can turn your home into a relaxation spa.
A massage can provide an instant calming effect to combat the effects of stress by over-working. If you’re looking for a surprise your partner will love, booking a massage for Valentine’s Day is a no-brainer!
Valentine’s Day gifts don’t need to be expensive or cliché.
Decadent sweets, beautiful air plants, engraved pens, babysitting services, and adrenaline sports are all wonderful gifts. However, what matters more than the actual gifts is the thought behind them. We can’t tell you what your partner loves most, but we hope to have given you some great ideas.
