Share the Love (Songs)

The power of music to evoke a feeling or memory is truly unparalleled. In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, team Wishlist has compiled a love inspired playlist chalked full of songs that give us the feels.

We’ve asked our team (as well as our friends at ThrivePass) to send over some of their favorite love songs.  Submissions span all musical genres and generations; and being that both love and music are universal languages, you’ll also see contributions from as far as India & Guatemala!

Valentine’s Day the Right Way

Calendars have flipped to February and love has started to fill the air. You may be fearing that moment when you have to hand over a totally thoughtful, personal gift to your significant other. Thankfully, we’ve got you covered. We’re going to make sure that this year you and your loved ones celebrate Valentine’s Day the right way by supplying you with a foolproof list of last minute gifts.

 

Couples Massage

So maybe this isn’t the most original gift, perhaps its already even crossed your mind, but there’s a reason couples massages top all the Valentine’s Day gift guides. Valentine’s Day should be a timeout from your day-to-day. You should do something different, enjoy time together, and relax from the stress of the week. Couples massages offer the perfect atmosphere to relax, rest, and unwind while enjoying something special, together.

 

Wine and Cheese Tasting

It can be hard to decide between a romantic home cooked meal, or the bustling excitement of a restaurant on Valentine’s Day. With a wine and cheese tasting you get the best of both. Start your evening sipping a selection of the state’s finest wines. You’ll get a behind the scenes tour, a taste of artisan cheese, and a romantic outing for two. Then return home for a fantastic home cooked meal like this or this. Even if all you can cook is grilled cheese and tomato soup, a personal touch is always appreciated.

 

A Scenic Flight For Two

Love is in the air quite literally with this experience. Take to the skies for a romantic outing for you and your loved one. Soar through breathtaking blue, drift over scenic landscapes, and enjoy each other’s company. A scenic flight, up to the highest heights, will surely be something you both remember.

 

Getaway From It All

What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than skipping town, and exploring a new city? This year Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday, so take off the weekend before to a quaint lodge, or a luxurious hotel. Spend the days exploring the outdoors, touring local favorites, and enjoying time with your significant other.

 

Take the Leap

When it comes to Valentine’s Day the best is always the most memorable. Don’t worry about romance, that comes naturally when you’re with the one you love, instead find an activity that lets you experience something new, together. A skydiving experience will make this your most memorable Valentine’s Day yet. Take the leap and soar through clear skies for a breathtaking holiday.
