Valentine's Day Gifts for Her - Be Unique

Valentine's Day Gifts for Her - Be Unique

Tags: Gift Experiences for Her

Valentine’s Day is coming up. And before your blood pressure starts to rise, relax. Take a deep breath. Here at Classbento, we want to help you choose the best Valentine’s Day gift that is going to surprise and delight her.

But before we do, we have to talk about two of the most common mistakes that partners make when it comes to Valentine’s Day. One mistake is the generic gift - chocolates, flowers, breakfast in bed, a card, etc. We don’t want to say you should completely steer clear of these gifts, but they definitely shouldn’t be main event.

The other common mistake is the overly extravagant gift. It might seem thoughtful to spend a month’s savings on a really nice necklace or pair of earrings, and hey, if that’s what she asked for, go with that. But the majority of women don’t actually want a piece of jewellery that they didn’t pick out themselves and is so flashy that they can’t wear it day-to-day. Instead, it ends up collecting dust in the box on her dresser.

You know what the really simple solution is? Think about what she actually likes. Does she paint? Does she read? Does she love coffee? Does she like trying new foods or hobbies? Everyone has something that brings her joy, and you should highlight that. 

Classbento offers a ton of courses that you can do with your girlfriend or wife that will make her so happy to be spending her Valentine’s with you. Although you can find a variety of options on our website, here are our top five recommendations:

1.      Latte Art

This course is any coffee lover’s dream. You’ll spend three and a half hours honing your foam art skills, creating your own designs, and having a great time with your partner. Plus, you’ll also learn how to make a great cup of coffee and enjoy a light meal.

The class even includes a certificate of achievement, which means that you can continue as her personal barista at home from now on. She’ll love that.

2.      Make a Ring in a Day

Buying jewellery for your girlfriend or wife is a tricky endeavor. Everyone has her own style and taste, and it can be hard to know she’s going to love. So, why not scratch that whole idea and invite her to a jewelry-making workshop, instead? In this three hour class, you’ll learn how to make a ring, pendant, or earrings using various metals. She is definitely going to feel more attached to a jewelry set that you had fun making together than one that you picked up from a jeweler.

3.      Night Photography

Valentine’s Day is always a crowded mess when you’re trying to have a conventional romantic night out. But with this course on night photography, you can spend February 14th capturing the beauty of Sydney after sunset. That is so much more romantic than fighting for a table at an overpriced restaurant. You should keep in mind that this class is offered the weekend before Valentine’s Day, which means that you can learn everything you need to know before going out on your own on the night of the 14th.

For this class, you’ll need a tripod and a digital camera with manual settings. If you don’t have one, don’t fret. The instructor, Alfonso, also offers a Smartphone Photography Class that you can opt for instead.

4.      Basics for Latin Rhythms Dance Class

If you’ve never danced in your life, your first reaction to this suggestion might be, there’s no way. But, hear us out. Giving the gift of a dance class is not only unique, but it’s fun and incredibly romantic. And this doesn’t have to be a public class. Fanny, the instructor, is willing to do private, hour and a half classes at home. You’ll be surprised at how much you’ll enjoy this experience with your girlfriend or wife.

5.      Flower Crown Workshop

Flower Crowns are a wonderful way to relax and get your creativity flowing. All the beautiful fragrances of flowers will make your special someone very happy and take all her cares away just for one day.

Five options is a pretty good start for your Valentine’s Day gift list, but remember - the list of Classbento courses is much, much longer! If you want to give her a class that she can go to alone or with friends, you might consider an Essential Oil Blending Workshop or Matcha Lovers High Tea Workshop. The important thing is, she’ll love that you took the time to pick an activity that she is actually going to enjoy and remember for years to come.
