Valentine’s Day is upon us! Have you gotten a gift for your significant other yet? If you haven’t, then maybe we can help. Check out these 5 timeless gifts that are sure to have your SO falling in love with you all over again.
Do a photoshoot and make a photo album. Make a photo collage for their bedroom or a framed picture for their desk at work. Photos are always going to be a good gift and because a picture is worth a thousand words you can really say a lot with one.
Word Gifts
Word gifts, whether it is a wooden sign or a framed quote, will always be available. The beauty of this type of gift is that it is so versatile that you can find just the perfect gift to fit the personality of your significant other and match the interior design.
Check out Thoughts in Vinyl for some great gifts like this framed vinyl lettering option.  
Flowers might seem a bit cliche, but they are never going out of style! Find out what your partner’s favorite flowers are and surprise them with a delivery at work, or leave them somewhere special. Flowers will always be a great gift for Valentine’s day, especially when paired with the next item in this list.
Chocolates (or your significant other’s favorite sugary treat) are one of the best gifts you can get. Nothing says love like a box of your favorite chocolates. Slip this delicious gift into your partner’s lunchbox or hide it under their pillow for them to find in the morning.
Your Time
If you really want to show your significant other how much your care this Valentine’s Day, spend some valuable time with them. Take a night off and take them on a fancy dinner date or somewhere reminiscent of your relationship. Spend some quality time at home making a romantic dinner.
All of these gifts allow you to let out the romantic inside by tailoring each item to your significant other. Take some time and think about your relationship with them, think about the things that like, and use that to get them the perfect gift.
When the winter hits, it tends to limit a lot of some of our favorite activities. And unless you are able to travel someplace warmer, it’s not likely you’ll get to participate in them until the weather calms down again in March, April, or even May in some places. But that’s okay. As you’re reading over this list of activities that are difficult in the winter, you can make a plan. Start planning now for trips you want to take this summer or goals of places you want to go and things you want to do. Remember the things that you are missing now, and take that into the spring with you and do them!

Golfing is traditionally a summer sport, and it’s not hard to imagine why. It wouldn’t be very fun, or even possible, in the ice and snow. If you are an avid golfer in the warmer months, you are probably missing this. While you’re waiting for your time to golf again, keep on on turf trends with this turf magazine.

Maybe you didn’t get to go as often as you would have like to last summer because of limited funds or not enough time – well plan for it now. Save some money, schedule some time to do the thing you love most, and by the time spring and summer roll around you’ll have the time of your life.

Swimming in an outdoor pool or cool lake in the summer is something you don’t get much of in the winter unless you live where it’s warm year round (or you can travel someplace warm). If you miss swimming that much, see if there’s a rec center near you where you can relish in the joy that the water brings you. And take those memories that you have of swimming outdoors into this coming year and do as much of it as you can when the weather warms up again. Plan some trips to a lake, or save up for an awesome outdoor swimming pool this year.

Fishing is definitely more fun, and relaxing, in the summer when you aren’t freezing trying to do it. However, if you miss it that much, there are plenty of places to go ice fishing in the northern states. But now is the time, with the new year upon us, to plan for the best fishing excursion of your life this coming summer. Pick a place that you’ve always wanted to go, and plan for it!

Riding ATVs
Sure, there are trails that you can take an ATV on in the snow, but you might be missing your bike as the ice gets thick and it just sits in the garage all winter. While you’re waiting for the weather to warm up so you can get back on the trails, read up on new gear, reviews, and news in the ATV world at Dirt Toys Magazine, they specialize in Polaris RZR and Can AM Mavericks. See what you can get to improve your rides for an even better summer.

If you’re a country person, driving diesel trucks with a great powerstroke engine through the mud was probably something you did often in the summer. And with the ice and snow, there isn’t a lot of mud to be found. But take the time now to research and find the perfect places to take your diesel to go mudding and camping with a group of buddies.
