When the more traditional presents of chocolates and roses won’t do the trick, there are some amazing gift ideas to consider giving your partner. But be prepared to pay a pretty price for love.
Whether you’re new in the relationship or decades in, there are times you must take that extra step to spice things up. While it doesn’t require going deep into debt to make it happen, be prepared to spend a few thousand dollars for that special gift. The memories will be worth it. And besides, can you really put a price on the returns you’ll see once your partner shows how much they appreciate the gesture?
Here are a few out-of-the-ordinary gift ideas to consider for that special someone in your life.
A love boat
It may seem like something reserved for the rich and famous, but you can live the same glamourous and romantic life for a few hours with a yacht rental. Depending on your location and the length of your romantic date, you can spend a few thousand dollars to rent a beautiful yacht and the captain needed to navigate you through the waters. You could splurge a bit more and have a catered meal with drinks overlooking the open water with your mate. But if the yacht rental took too much out of your wallet, just pack a picnic basket with food and drinks and you’ll be ready to make the most of an unforgettable romantic voyage for two.
A forever gift
Nothing screams romance to most women more than diamonds. Not just one, but a strip of them wrapped around her finger. And that can go a long way beyond some silver pendant that might be considered appropriate under normal circumstances. Consider a 14 karat chain-link ring with sparkling diamonds roped around it. For a few thousand dollars, she will remember the day you gave it to her and how the two of you celebrated every time she looks down at it.
A game gift
It’s not just women who deserve the nicer things in life. Men enjoy those special gifts, too. So imagine what he’ll say when he comes home to find a wooden foosball table sitting in the den. But this is no ordinary foosball table found banged up and tattered at the corner ball. This Spanish-made table made of wood with hand-painted players will run just over $5,000. But it will forever remind him of the love you share every time he plays a game with friends. On the other hand, take up the challenge yourself and be his most reliable playmate so you can both enjoy the sport of it.
A tasty gift
An easy way to your partner’s heart is through their stomach. Consider hiring a private chef to not only prepare a meal for the two of you at your home but to also teach you how to do it together once they’re gone. Depending on your location and who you hire, the cost could range from under $1,000 to more than $2,000 for the meal and the cooking class performed in your kitchen. But the two of you could spend more time together in and out of the kitchen as a result, with that special meal that will always remind you of that gift when you prepare it together in the years to come.
