Valentine’s Day is just over a week away, and whether you are celebrating with a partner, or family and friends, here are some fun, out of the ordinary ideas for things to do, and gifts you can get your loved ones for this special day.

Go & Do-

Picnic- If the weather is nice, grab your favorite snacks, some yummy drinks, and a big blanket and g have a snack at your favorite local park.

Axe Throwing- In downtown Bend, there is Axe Throwing place called Unofficial Logging Co. where you can grab some food and drinks, and throw an axe at a big wood target.

Ride Go Karts- Also in Bend is K1 Speed, which is an indoor go kart business- fun for the whole family!

Take a Trip- Even if it’s just an overnight trip, grab a friend, a member of your family, or your partner and hit the road. Some ideas are: Portland, Crane Hot Springs, somewhere along the coast, or even just get a house in a nearby town.

Stargazing- You can either set up some comfy chairs or blankets to lay on in your yard, or go to The Sunriver Observatory to see the stars and planets up close.


Baskets- You can put together a basket with all of your loved one’s favorite things. Some basket ideas are: self-care/ spa, craft beer, movie night, meats & cheese, candy, hot cocoa stuff, books, candles, craft items, and so much more.

Personalized- With websites like Pinterest and Etsy, there are so many people can create personalized: jewelry, keychains, home decor, and even fun little books.

Take a Class- Another fun, personal, out-of-the ordinary gift is to buy a class for you and a loved one to take. It can be anything from a pottery class, to a cooking class.

DIY- People love getting handmade gifts, so some fun ideas we love are: sugar body scrub, jar cake, candy bouquet, or just a batch of yummy heart-shaped baked goods or chocolate covered strawberries.

Get out there and plan to spend the day or evening with your loved ones!

Happy Valentine’s Day,
