Best Valentine’s Day Gifts And Activities For the Love of Your Life That Aren’t Just A Dinner

It’s okay to admit that you take your partner for granted. We often forget how love began simply because it’s been so long. This Valentine’s Day shows your partner that you do truly love them by giving them more than a heart-shaped box of chocolates or flowers. Because while all of that is nice, doing something extra such as giving them a unique gift that not only says “I love you” but rather “I love you more today than the first day we met.” We’ve featured some really special gifts that will make your partner feel loved like never before.

A group Valentine’s Day party.

Who says Valentine’s Day has to be just between two people? Instead of having a dreadful dinner for two at an overcrowded restaurant, host a party with other couples and celebrate love with a real bash. It’ll be a lot more fun, we can assure you.

A scavenger hunt.

YouTube

If you’ve seen the movie “Amelie,” you’ll know there’s lovely scavenger hunt seen in which the protagonist leaves a trail of clues for the man she desires. Think about that kind of concept for your partner. Leave notes and questions with clues to the next location that will lead them back to you.

Personalized book for couples.

Do you always get asked, “so how did you two meet?” Instead of retelling the story, show them the actual story through LoveBook — a printed book with your personalized story. Go to lovebookonline.com to submit your story and get a published book with the story of how you met.

Recreate the day you met (or your first date).

For those that have been together for a while, have you ever gone back to that one restaurant where you two had your first date? This Valentine’s Day goes back to that city, that bar, or wherever your first date was to remember how it all started.

Personalized mixtape pillow.

uncommongoods.com

No one makes mixtapes anymore, which sucks so bad because that was one of the way’s you could tell your crush that you liked them. For $58 you can lay your pretty little head on a soft mixtape made just for you and your love. Bonus points for listening to your favorite tunes while using the pillow.

The Lovebox Spinning Heart Messenger Box.

instagram/@lovebox_love

This personalized “love box” is basically like a regular text message only it’s more special and saved in a special love box. Get it? You buy the love box, send a message via the app, and your person will get an indication (via a spinning heart) that they have a message. They open it, and bam. Love delivered, just go to en.lovebox.love. 

A personalized map that shows your two worlds coming together.

Etsy

These days, it kind of rare that two people fall in love who happen to be from the same area. Thanks to social media, people from all over the world are coming together all in the name of love. Commemorate these two worlds coming by framing your individual cities, or hoods, or countries in one picture. You can purchase them on Etsy for $45.

“Ay, ay, ay, ay/ Canta y no llores,” imagine hearing those words from a mariachi that is hired to sing just for you. That is the ultimate gift that no one would expect.

Give them the moon.

Amazon

The next time your loved one says “I love you to the moon and back” respond by saying “Oh yeah? Prove it!” Now you can. For $20 you can get a 3D LED dual color light in the shape of the moon that will light up any room. And more importantly your lover’s heart.

Go on a long weekend getaway staycation.

Instagram/@curiocollection

If you truly can’t get away for a trip somewhere abroad, why not just take a break for a couple of days without getting on a plane. Don’t you deserve at least a night away at a grand hotel? We suggest visiting a Curio Collection hotel (they have 74 beautiful hotels all over the world and probably near you) where it will feel like you’re in a world far far away.

Play the Fog of Love.

Facebook/Fogoflove

Love is magical, sometimes even not of this world. Fog of Love — a board game — that tells a “powerful, cinematic love story that will leave a lasting impression and the best way to experience any great movie is to not know how it will end, so we won’t give any spoilers away.” Now that’s a game we can get into, especially on Valentine’s Day.

One book for all of your special meals.

Amazon

One of the things couples do more than anything is else is go out to eat. But are their certain meal experiences that stick out more than others? Certianly! That’s why this book — Menus: A Book for Your Meals and Memories — is a perfect gift. You will be able to keep forever those special meals and recipes that you can pass down your children, and be remembered forever. The book is available for $14 on Amazon.

Forget tattooing your lover’s name, get a personalized ring instead.

Amazon

A rain shower head will change your life.

There’s a reason why we people love going to hotels, one of them being the bathroom. Bring a little piece of heaven with you and present your partner with this incredible gift that will transform both of your lives.

Talk to each other.

Amazon

We know it’s hard to talk to your partner after years of being together, but TableTopics can change that. They have a TableTopic for all kinds of situations including for family and friends, but for Valentine’s Day, we suggest you get the one for couples. It’s just $25 on Amazon.

A personalized liquor bottle.

Amazon

If your partner likes a fine glass of liquor, this personalized gift on Amazon for $45 is perfect for them.

Hire a cleaning crew for a month.

Salice Rose’s Ex Is On YouTube Right Now Attacking The Social Media Star Just Days After Announcing Her New Girlfriend

Salice Rose’s Ex Is On YouTube Right Now Attacking The Social Media Star Just Days After Announcing Her New Girlfriend

YouTuber Salice Rose has been notoriously private about her love life… up until last week when she introduced us all to her new bae. The Rose Family has erupted with joy for Salice in finding, if not love, then at least baeship with Brilynn. We’ve never seen another face that Salice has dated.

Then, one of Salice’s exes launched a YouTube channel of her own to explicitly talk about her relationship with Salice. In the video, Chas vents all her frustrations with the relationship and publicly airs out her side of the story. According to Chas, Salice was verbally and emotionally abusive, didn’t want her to have friends, and even donated her father’s ashes to Goodwill after one day’s notice to remove her stuff from Salice’s apartment.

Chas F’s channel already has 47k subscribers, and all her videos are about Salice Rose.

She created the channel about a week ago, just after Salice introduced her followers to her new girlfriend, Brilynn. According to Chas, it was hard to watch the video because just two weeks prior, they were “in each other’s phones” and talking about marriage, but Salice wanted to focus on her music.

Salice Rose has responded with a nearly hour and a half long retaliation video.

“A message to my ex: I hope lying on my name all over social media made you happy,” Salice tweeted. “I hope you got all the fame you wanted. Because of YOU I’m in waves of depression. You spoke, my turn.”

In the video, she goes point by point to respond to each of Chas’s allegations.

Salice actually made the point of writing down each point that Chas made and tells her fans that the video would be the first and the last time she talks about that relationship again. 

Chas’ story is that Salice didn’t let her have any other jobs because she didn’t want her to be too far from her. Salice’s side, corroborated by her friends commenting in the background, is that Chas quit all her jobs of her own volition. According to Salice, she would absolutely tell her to “come home,” but didn’t expect her to actually quit her jobs.

According to Chas, Salice had the idea to hire her and their relationship started to fall apart from there.

Chas shared that she had a feeling that taking the job would take away time from their relationship. They were spending all day together, and Salice takes her job very seriously. According to Chas, that made it difficult to spend time together without tension. Chas also said that she wasn’t getting paid enough to support anything other than her car bills. They started fighting, and Chas says that she didn’t have the opportunity to make any new friends.

The Rose Family is largely very sus of Chas’ accusations.

Chas said that she asked Salice to take on more responsibilities because she felt degraded by being paid to pick up dog poop. Salice had two dogs and Chas also had two dogs. According to Chas, the moment that she talked about getting other jobs, Salice started to treat her with disrespect and gaslit her.

Salice Rose opened her retaliation video by calling several Goodwills to ask if they accept human remains. They all said ‘no.’

Chas says that Salice was going to mail her stuff out to Florida after they separated. Chas said she was calling and leaving voicemails to a mutual friend to arrange for Chas’s dad’s stuff to be mailed back to Florida. Through tears, Chas shares that two months after she moved out, she received an email with the subject line, “Notice of Right to Reclaim Abandoned Property” on June 7th.

One fan did some deep diving on Chas’ Instagram back to the day after that email, June 8th.

“I saw your ex’s vids and for a sec she made me think that you were the bad guy here,” tweeted @nvmexme. “But i mean everyone make mistakes yk? Anyways i kinda stalked her ig account and noticed that the same day say said that her things were going to be ‘donated’ Which was on june 8.”

Salice shared the email with her fans which clearly states that she gave Chas a month and a day from the receipt of the email to reclaim her property, which had already been in her apartment for two months.

There has been an outpour of support for Salice Rose after she responded to her ex-girlfriend’s video.

Credit: @salice_roseee / Twitter

Salice laid out her counterargument in an hour and twenty-minute video and went point by point off of Chas F’s video. She made a real point of taking on Chas F’s statement that Salice didn’t want her to have friends. As Salice lays out, she values friendships and argues that it is better for the relationship if both people have friends to hang out with outside of the relationship.

In other news, Salice’s debut R&B track became an overnight bop.

Salice has been teasing an entrance into a music career, and fans are shooketh that it’s actually here. Salice’s new bae, Brilynn commented, “Congratulations babe.”

Relationships are messy, but “Lullaby” is as smooth as can be.

Fans already can’t get enough of her new song.

Some are calling it the new summer bop. It does seem like fans have long been waiting for something like this from Salice Rose and they are letting everyone know that they need to check out this new song.

Watch Salice Rose’s response to her ex-girlfriend’s videos below!

This Woman Shared A Picture Of Her Abuelos Celebrating 51 Years Of Marriage And Twitter Can’t Stop Crying

@@AzulSamantha ? Twitter
If you grew up in a Latino household, you know more than most just how generous love can be. Maybe you saw your older hermanos perfecting their game or you took to heart the example that your parents’ love for each other had to show. Either way, you know well that Latino didn’t get the reputation of being a bunch of Don Juans for no reason. If you happened to have grown up with your abuelitos, you probably already know that love only gets better with age. If you won’t take our word for it, take a peek at these totally romantic tweets that remind us that love doesn’t grow old, it just grows stronger.

1. Celebrating 51 years of wedded bliss.

Twitter / @AzulSamantha

Twitter user @AzulSamantha recently shared a few simply adorable pictures of her grandparents on the social media site. Married 51 years, her abuelo was sure to remember the big occasion and treat his wife like the reyna she is. We can only hope to find this kind of love in our own lives.

2. It isn’t just our abuelitos who are teaching us about love.

Twitter / @RocioAndujo

Back in April 2019, this Twitter user shared a really romantic discovery. Her mom kept and pressed nearly every flower her dad gave her while they were dating. In the end, she wound up with a sentimental scrapbook that reflects the love the two of them have shared over the past 27 years.

3. A moment that will make you believe in love.

Sometimes it’s the little things in life that make us believe in love. This Twitter user shared a sweet, little anecdote of a time when her grandfather made her feel that same way. When he peeped a picture of his wife on his granddaughter’s phone, this grandpop was quick to ask, “Well, who is that good looking chick.” We’re kinda swooning over here and we have to admit that grandpa’s got game.

4. We’re trying to be loved like this.

Twitter / @briiicope

Love means taking care of the person most special to you. This tweet showed us just what sort of love we should be looking for. If something so small can be made so significant, it has to be true love. Do you have someone willing to do something like this for you? If you do, hold on to them because that’s hard to find.

5. Love is its own language.

Twitter / @itsbiankahaha

Do you want to hear a fairytale? Twitter user @itsbiankahaha tweeted this lovely story earlier this month. According to the tweet, her mom and dad met when they were teenagers. Her mom, a 15-year-old, had migrated to the US and only spoke Spanish. Her dad, a 17-year-old, was from the States and only spoke English. Despite the difference in language, the two were able to fall in love and have been together for 21 years. Now that’s what we call a love story.

6. Love is the memories we have of each other.

Twitter / @samille_otis

This Twitter user shared a scrapbook that her mother kept when she was dating her father. Mementos like pictures, receipts and letters make up the album and remain a reminder of how much the two have loved each other ever since the very beginning of their story.

7. Daily reminder that “Aloha” also means “love.”

Twitter / @melkmat_

Love only grows with time and this throwback pic is proof of that commitment. Ten years separate the first and second picture but these parents look every bit as in love now as they did in the first pic. As mom says in the tweet, their love has only gotten stronger.

8. We celebrate more than just wedding anniversaries in this house.

Twitter / @marialuna_

Anyone can remember a wedding anniversary but if you’re truly in love, you remember ALL of the anniversaries. This tweet introduced us to a couple who is celebrating 28 years since the dad first asked the mom to be his girlfriend. That’s some tooth-rotting fluff right there and we love it.

9. We celebrate a couple that can tease each other and laugh together.

Twitter / @samanthaaa_eli

Twitter user @samanthaaa_eli showed off the kind of playful love that her parents have. After her mom joked that her next husband will be a gringo so she can boss him around, her dad responded, “Cállate vieja, I’m trying to watch TV.” We can tell that the two play around with each other like this all the time. After all, a strong sense of humor is always important in a loving relationship. 

10. The meaning of one true love.

  Twitter / @Shermeen_here

Sometimes life gives us more than one love and we are given multiple chances to find the person we’re meant for. Still, some of us only have one true love. This tweet reminds us of that possibility and we’re definitely crying bittersweet tears over this one. Like the tweet says, once you’ve had the best, what’s the point of looking for better.
