Dear Guys who waited to the last minute,
Let’s begin with a reminder: You’re not alone. Many men wait until the eleventh hour to grab a quick box of chocolates and some roses from the street corner guy by their office building. This is something women have been joking about since the inception of the holiday.
Do you want to be like the rest of the guys? Do you want to be “that guy” the comic strip is about? Are you panicked? Do you feel like there just isn’t time? Here’s the solution:
1. Pick a place she deserves to go and book it
2. Print a photo of your vacation paradise to tuck in a romantic card
3. Get a little gift that echoes the spirit of the trip.
See! You can do this!
Does your honey deserve a beach vacation? Grab a bottle of the freshest organic sun lotion, and book a trip to Aruba. Write a steamy message in the card about a beachfront back massage and include this picture.
Certainly she’ll love this view and the beachfront condo that comes with it. All the amenities of home plus resort living. This is the last minute V-Day gift that she’ll never know was last minute.
Is she the outdoorsy type? Grab a camel pack and some granola bars and attach a photo of this Mt. Rainier cabin. A little message about climbing the highest mountain for her love is totally within the realm of gooey perfection.
Spend a week exploring on foot or in a kayak then taking relaxing romantic soaks in the hot tub. If your four-legged family member can’t be left out, no worries. This is a pet-friendly option so her dog can come too. In fact, there are plenty of animal-centric activities. Horseback riding, wild animal preserves, and fishing round out the wildlife adventures of the Pacific Northwest.
The combinations of trips and trinkets are endless. Saving yourself from a boring Valentine’s Day is really that easy. You know the places she wants to go. That wine she always orders? Grab a bottle and head to Italy to see it made. Present her with a trip to Thailand over a plate of pad see ew. What goes together better than a can of surfboard wax and the waves in Belize? You two!
