Like all holidays for the past year, this Valentine’s Day is going to look different because of the pandemic. For many a romantic dinner, out is off the table, forcing couples to get creative in their celebrations and gift-giving. Here are our top five luxurious gift ideas couples can enjoy together this Valentine’s Day.

Netflix and Chill
For a whole new way to “Netflix and Chill” give each other a subscription to a luxury adult entertainment site: Vixen Media Group. This streaming service is changing adult content by creating content that celebrates the art, beauty, and strength of women – a nice change of pace from other sites. As the premier online destination for exclusive and luxury adult content, viewers need to subscribe to a membership to Vixen’s award-winning platform in order to access the exclusive content (monthly access rate – $14.95 or yearly access rate – $99.95) but benefit from access to 4K Ultra HD content, movie-quality scenes, hi-res photo updates, bonus content, mobile and tablet compatibility and more. Additionally, studies have found that watching adult videos together is linked to better sex and can actually help foster emotional and sexual intimacy. It can be a useful tool for couples that leads to positive effects, such as better sexual communication, more sexual experimentation, and more comfort with sex.
After a year of being grounded, plan for future 2021 travel with an assortment of travel gift cards. Thanks to a plethora of options, you can literally lay out an entire vacation without needing to book it yet. Combine a Southwest airline gift card with ones from Hotels.com or Airbnb, restaurants.com, and Uber and you have all the major components of your trip covered. On Valentine’s Day surf the Internet or browse through travel magazines and decide on the perfect destination.

The last year has been stressful! It’s the perfect time to gift a spa gift card for a couple’s spa day. Spend the day connecting with each other, while letting the therapists pamper you while working out all the knots caused by Zoom meetings and at-home learning.
This Valentine’s Day might be different, but if the last year has shed light on anything, it’s that the people and relationships in our life are what matter. Give any of the experiential gifts on our list and it’s sure to be a Valentine’s Day to remember.
