Valentine’s Day Ideas for Him and Her: Something Special for That Special Someone

February 14th is quickly approaching. Be original this year. Whether you’re looking for Valentine’s gifts for him or her, these ideas will help you create a present your partner will love.

Valentine Gift Ideas for Him and Her

Valentine’s Day is upon us. This is your chance to show your loved one how much he or she means to you. So, what do you give that person who knows you better than you know yourself? Consider these thoughtful Valentine gift ideas for him or her, along with a few variations on some old standbys.

No matter what you choose, there are plenty of creative ways to enhance your gift with an American Express® Gift Card. Let your loved one pick out what he or she wants online or in person, virtually anywhere American Express is accepted.

American Express Gift Cards: The Gifts that Stand Out
  • Can be used virtually anywhere in the U.S. where American Express Cards are accepted
  • Safer than cash because the funds can be replaced if lost or stolen*
  • Choose from a variety of designs appropriate for Valentine’s Day

It’s in the Cards

Why sift through Valentine’s Day cards that other people have written when only you know what you want to say? Craft your own card, include your favorite picture and tell your loved one exactly how you feel. You don’t have to be artistic to make a lasting impression, especially when you include an American Express Gift Card and a few thoughtful suggestions for how your partner can use it.

Flower Power

Most people (men included) enjoy getting flowers, but there’s nothing that says you have to give a dozen roses. If you’re looking for innovative Valentine’s Day ideas for him or her, suspend tradition and work with your local florist to create an original bouquet. Feature your loved one’s favorite varietal, include a flower for every year (or month) you’ve been together and display an American Express Gift Card among the flowers. Now that’s a beautiful arrangement.

Picture This

You’ve taken some great photos together, but most of them are hiding on your hard drive. Here’s your chance to tell the story of your relationship in pictures. Photo books make great Valentine’s gifts. And it’s easy to slip an American Express Gift Card inside the front cover.

That’s the Ticket

She loves her team and desperately wants to go to a game this season. His favorite band is coming to town. Or maybe there’s a show you both really want to see. Need more Valentine gift ideas for him or her? Great seats, along with a gift card for concessions at the game or dinner before the show, might be just the ticket.

All in One Basket

Gift baskets make great Valentine’s gifts for him or her, especially when you assemble them yourself. Pick up a bottle of your loved one’s favorite wine or spirit. Include chocolate and other sinful snacks, a framed picture, candles, incense, massage oil and anything else your partner might enjoy. Running out of room? Tuck in a gift card and let your loved one pick out something that won’t fit in the basket.

Gift cards come in various designs appropriate for Valentine’s Day, can feature a personal message right on the card and offer the flexibility for your loved one to get what he or she loves.
