Gift Ideas for the Busy Man and Woman
There’s nothing like a hardworking and busy Valentine. Every moment you spend with him or her is a gift, but don’t stop there. Why not give your busy Valentine something he or she actually needs: relaxation.
First things first; how does your Valentine relax?
Some men relax by playing sports such as golfing or basketball or even video games while other men like to relax at the fishing hole with a couple of beers. Women relax in many different ways from a day at the spa to a lazy day at home watching Lifetime or Criminal Mind reruns.
Once you have the answers; create a Worry Free Relaxation Valentine Package for your mate.
The objective of this package is to give your busy Valentine a day or a few hours to relax and/or have fun doing what he or she loves.
Here’s an example of a Worry Free Relaxation Valentine Package for a guy that likes to golf;
Check your Valentine’s golf clubs and equipment. Does anything need to be repaired or replaced? If so, replace or have it repaired.
Next, if you live in a warm state, plan a Golf day during Valentine week. If you are not one of the fortunate few, and live in a state where blustery winters are the norm this time of year, schedule your Worry Free Relaxation package when the weather is perfect for golfing. Download a blank gift certificate from the internet and fill it out with your lover’s information and the gift details. Some clubs offer gift certificates to purchase if your lover’s club does, buy one and give it to him. Make sure you dress it up nicely and put it inside of a personalized Valentine’s Day card. He’ll love it.
When it’s time to golf, this week or sometime in the near future, be prepared to accompany your Valentine on his day unless he enjoys going it alone. Even if you don’t know how to golf, go anyway and ask your Beloved to show you the rules of the game. It might feel uncomfortable to the novice in the beginning, but trust me; you both will love the comedy.
End the day with a hot steamy shower accompanied with the music he loves to listen to and the sexy fruits he loves to eat. Bathe him. Feed him. Love him. After all, he is your Valentine.

Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Young Lovers
This section is for young lovers. Remember youth is not age. It’s a state of mind. For practical purpose Young Love is for lovers that are newly involved. They have typically been in a relationship for under a year. If this is you, create a Worry Free Fun in the Sun Romance Package for your Valentine.
Young love is new and definitely different. It’s a time for exploration. The best way to explore is to go out and do something together. Couples that spend time together create memories that last a lifetime. Those relationships usually last longer than couples that opt to live separate lives.
Here are a few examples of things to do together;
- Find a common interest and learn a new skill together
- Create an “our place” by going somewhere you both have never been
- Find a secluded beach – if you live in a warm city-skinny dip
- Get your laugh on – book great seats a comedy club
- Solve a difficult problem or puzzle together – this will create a bond within your relationship and you’ll know whether or not you can work together
- Volunteer together at a cause you believe in
- Fight for something you both believe in
Do you get the picture?
I hope the examples I’ve shared ignite a flame that fuels your creative juices. If not, reread them until you end up with something as unique and beautiful as your love.
It’s Valentine’s Day, and your Valentine deserves a gift that his or her own, not someone else’s opinion, but a gift that comes from the heart and mind of the one they love –you!
