Non-Material Christmas Gift Ideas That Will Make Your S.O. Feel Loved!

Go on a Refreshing Drive
A reprieve from hustling at work day-to-day will surely be such a pleasant surprise! Take your S.O. out on a drive along the more scenic roads of the city or even go a little farther out of town for a change in environment. Something simple as a drive can do wonders to uplift your mood.

Surprise Them with a Beach Vacation
As domestic travel is opening up once again, take this opportunity to plan a beach vacation. Wouldn’t a stroll on the sand while hearing the soothing waves of the ocean just be so romantic? A short vacation in one of the Philippines’ amazing islands is a great way to rest and relax.

Treat Yourselves to a Staycation with a View
Another idea is to go on a staycation somewhere surrounded by the beauty of nature. There’s something so comforting about seeing a view of mountains and trees. Spend a few days cozying up together in a comfy vacation house and bask in the serenity of the highlands.

Join a Pottery Class
Trying out a new hobby is an exciting gift! If you love working with your hands, then express your creativity through a pottery class. You might be able to use the pieces you make as home décor, too. If there’s a skill your partner has always wanted to learn or an interest they’ve been longing to pursue, then now is the time to do so. With your help, too!

Take a Trip Outdoors
Pitch a tent or prepare a picnic outdoors and enjoy the fresh air while being in each other’s company. Bring a basket of your favorite food and beverages, and take a moment to unplug from the rest of the world. This will be such a meaningful gift, don’t you think?

Try Doing a Dance or Fitness Class Together
If your partner is taking steps towards their fitness goals, your support will mean the world to them! There are many classes you can join whether live (if it’s permitted and safe enough) or virtually, like yoga, pilates, cardio dance, and Zumba. Working out is much better when done together!

Sail Away on a Yacht
If you’re thinking of a grand, romantic gesture, how about surprising your S.O. with a yacht ride? Give yourselves an excuse to dress up in your fanciest attire. Complete the experience with champagne and have a toast to spending more years together in love.

Compose a Love Song
If you’re a musician or have the talent for composition, writing a song dedicated to the love of your life would be a priceless gift. If not a song, then how about a poem or a handwritten letter about how much you appreciate your journey together so far? Finding a way to express your feelings will be so heartwarming.

Bake Their Favorite Dessert
Try your hand with an oven and bake your S.O.’s favorite desserts!  The smell of baked goods wafting in the air and a warm tray of sweets greeting you will certainly put a smile on anyone’s face. The best part is that it’s made with your love and effort!
