Finding the right gift for your loved one on Valentine's Day (or our favorite alternate holiday, #GalentinesDay), can be tough! These days, buying her jewelry, gifts, or chocolate can feel almost passé. Well... except chocolate. ANY woman would happily celebrate with chocolate!! Even so, we encourage you to update your #Valentinesgame and give her an EXPERIENCE. Memories of a special event or experience last much longer than the short-lived thrill of getting a new coffee mug or necklace! We know that changing things up is hard, so we've got a few suggestions for fun ways to celebrate the special lady in your life:
Foodie: If you have a food connoisseur in your life, you are lucky that Breckenridge is absolutely packed full of high-end dining options! Valentine's Day is busy, so book a table early for your special night out. Even better, try a dining tour of town and book tables at different restaurants for appetizers, dinner, and dessert! A few of our favorite options are Ember, Twist, Briar Rose Chophouse, Hearthstone, and Modis.
Adventurista: If you have someone in your life who loves to ski or snowshoe, and spends all their time obsessing over the latest gear, nothing says "I Love You," like an adventure! Rent a cabin or a yurt at State Forest State Park through Never Summer Nordic, or plan a hut trip with the Summit County Hut Association. Surprise your special someone with the trip itinerary and you'll have one happy adventurer! Book a massage as a special bonus, for her post-adventure recovery.
DIY Diva: Combine crafting and pampering for your craftsy gal pal. Buy some ingredients for DIY Bath Bombs or a DIY Body Scrub, and have a night of crafting by candlelight, paired with her favorite wine!
Glam Squad: Buy some tickets to walk the Red Carpet and watch the Oscars at Breck Film Fest's Hollywood & Wine Fundraiser. Don't forget to book her an appointment at BCB Salon, to get her glammed up for the party!
Flies-By-The-Seat-Of-Her-Pants: If you have a woman in your life who loves spontaneity, book a condo or hotel out of town for the weekend with Air BnB or VRBO. Pack up her suitcase for her, pick her up after work, and hit the road! No time to leave town? Book a night at local bed & breakfast, the Fireside Inn, for a romantic change-of-pace.
Super Mom: Regardless of their stay-at-home vs. working-woman status, moms just can't catch a break. They just want some peace and quiet, so plan a solo day for the mom in your life. Take the kids to Denver for the day and let her enjoy some mental relaxation. Book her a massage, stock the freezer with a pint of Ben & Jerry's, her favorite bottle of wine, a new romance novel or movie, and leave her alone to enjoy a quiet, peaceful house.
Hopeless Romantic: Nothing speaks to a hopeless romantic like a traditional bouquet of roses, some chocolate, and a night out at the theater. Book tickets at the Breckenridge Backstage Theater for a live performance of one of the February performances: "Almost, Maine," or "Boeing, Boeing." Be sure to book a date night hair appointment at BCB!
Dancing Queen: Take your best gal pal out for a night on the town! Treat her to a manicure/pedicure (for two!) and then head straight out for drinks. We recommend starting with martinis at the Blue River Bistro, or craft cocktails at Aurum. Head to Napper Tandy’s to dance the night away, or boogie down with the party crowd at Cecelia's Cocktail Bar and Nightclub. Bar-hop to your heart's content... just be sure to catch an Uber or ride the free Summit Stage home!
