GIFT HER A CHOCOLATE-MAKING EXPERIENCE INSTEAD OF CHOCOLATE
A half-eaten box of chocolates hardly spells romance. Instead, indulge your loved one's passion for chocolate by letting her be a chocolatier for day.
GIFT HER A FLOWER ARRANGING PARTY INSTEAD OF FLOWERS
Flowers are a nice gesture, but take it one step further to show her how much you care. Let your loved one put her petal power to work with a flower arranging party for her and seven friends.
LET HER CREATE A SIGNATURE FRAGRANCE INSTEAD OF GIFTING PERFUME
The woman at the fragrance counter told you Britney Spears' perfume was as enchanting as her new album. Only later did you learn this was not a compliment. Forgo the perfume roulette and let her create a one-of-a-kind fragrance that captures her essence, style and personality.
GIFT HER A ROMANTIC CHAMPAGNE TASTING INSTEAD OF BATH BUBBLES
Bath bubbles are nice, but sipping bubbly with your loved one is even more romantic. With a champagne tasting experience for two, learn about champagnes while you sample distinctive bottles and food at an elegant champagne bar.

GIFT HIM A STOCK CAR RIDE-ALONG INSTEAD OF NEW WATCH

GIFT HIM PRIVATE BALLPARK TOUR INSTEAD OF TEAM JERSEY
