If you are stumped for what to get your Yakima Valley wife, girlfriend, or sidepiece for Valentine's Day, grab a pen and some paper and WRITE THIS STUFF DOWN! The dirty work has already been done for you because I asked a bunch of ladies what they actually want their special person to get them for the holiday! Go ahead and get the candy and flowers, but you need to get her SOMETHING ELSE besides that!

There are so many spa experiences that please us! Hot Rocks, Cupping, Swedish (Deep Tissue) Massage, and even Reiki massages would soothe away our troubles and leave us content for Valentine's Day! Up the ante by her a FLOAT SPA experience and if you want to do the MOST, book the two of you a COUPLES MASSAGE package!

2. Louis Vuitton something, Louis Vuitton anything Gift for Valentine's Day

Black Louis Vuitton Monogram Purse

There's something about having a Louis Vuitton bag on your arm that makes you feel sexy, luxurious, and LOVED by the person who bought it for you. Sure, we can buy the purse on our own but who wants to do all that when our LOVER can do it for us! Spoil that lady with some LV!

Other bags that bring us joy on Valentine's Day include:

  • Telfar
  • Birkin
  • Brandon Blackwood
  • Chanel

3. Day of Sleep Gift for Valentine's Day

Just to have some time to sleep in or take a delicious nap without worrying about anybody else is a gift worth giving, especially to busy moms and single people over 30! The gift of a fresh nap is sometimes worth more than chocolates and gorgeous flowers, not saying you should skip out on giving those two, but in addition to! You can heighten the romance by taking a nap with her. Cuddle, make out, whatever you like!

TIP: Be a doll and make sure your lover has a great memory foam mattress. My favorite is the iComfort series memory foam mattress with an adjustable bed base! (I got it from Mattress Firm a few years back.)

If you don't want to do the laundry, fold up the clothes, and then put them all away, imagine how much your lover doesn't want to do any of that either! Hire someone to come over and provide a laundry service as a great Valentine's Day gift! This is a great tip, thank me later!

The only time that I ever like washing dishes is when I am doing them after someone else has cooked me a delicious meal. There are quite a few home cleaning agencies in town that will come over and wash the dishes for you. I'm not sure of where they are but I keep hearing about them. Please LET ME KNOW who they are because I want to give that gift to MYSELF!
