Creative Ways To Show You Care This Valentine’s Day

By Deirdre Flanagan Ward

Valentine's Day Monmouth County NJ

“Life is like a box of chocolates.” However, love can be shared in many ways to make life that much sweeter. Here are some creative ways to channel your inner Cupid if you are looking to spoil your spouse, share an experience with a friend or significant other, treat the family to some fun, or shower attention on your four-legged friends.


Luxury Transportation

Love is a two-way street, but true romance is enjoying a glass of bubbly in a luxury limo. Whether you are stepping out for a night on the town, getting away for a romantic occasion, or partying with a group of friends, smart and sophisticated transportation is the way to go. After all, the journey should be as much fun as the destination.


Golf Lessons

Putter up! A perfect way to share some quality time while improving your game is a golf lesson for two. Many courses in Monmouth County offer private lessons specifically tailored to experience. And most clubs offer individual half-hour and full-hour sessions as well as discounted lesson packages. This is a sure-fire hole in one if you want to win big with your sports-minded valentine.


Pet Retreat

Pamper your four-legged friend with a day or weekend at a local pet retreat. Drop your pet off at one of the many luxury pet resorts in the area to be spoiled with private suites, doggie pools and nightly bedtime stories. While the pooch is away, why not take advantage and plan a getaway for yourself?


Luxury Weekend Getaway

Pack up the family or round up a group of friends for a fun time at one of the high-end luxury hotels in the area. Enjoy featured amenities such as gourmet dining, live entertainment, and indoor pool activities. A weekend away is a gift everyone will love.


Portrait Session

Capture the look of love with a professional portrait of your betrothed, spouse or entire family. A professional portrait is a gift that will keep on giving for years to come and bring back fond family memories. Hang your framed work of art over the mantle, in the foyer or your home office – wherever you choose is sure to bring a smile to any room.


Love is in the Detailing

True love is the act of performing a thorough cleaning, restoration and finishing of a motor vehicle to produce a buffed and polished end result for your favorite auto enthusiast. Add a scented air freshener and your Valentine’s gift is showroom-ready and good to go.
