Alternative Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

valentines-daySalzburg, the 4th largest city in Austria, is just as romantic as any other destination.

The big day is fast approaching and if you’re tired of doing the same generic thing every year try out our alternative Valentine’s Day gift ideas to liven things up!


Bespoke Fragrances

Floris have been in the perfumery business since 1730. So you know your getting the best of the best with them

Rather than buying any old fragrance for that special someone why not book a trip to a perfumer?  (yes those actually still exist!) You could go on your own beforehand  or surprise your date with a trip for both of you. It’s very thoughtful way to show your other half how much you care about them plus they’ll now have the most exclusive bottle of perfume to ever exist!


Experience Days 

For the more adrenaline seeking couples out there you can book days on a car race track, paint balling, or even a romantic sunrise hot air ballon ride. 


Short Courses/Classes


Is your other half always harping on about wanting to take some kind of class or short course but never getting around to actually doing it? Well this Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to show them that you have indeed been listening to their ramblings. Whether it be cookery, dance or
languages there are dozens of classes that should tickle their fancy.


A Weekend Away

Salzburg, the 4th largest city in Austria, is just as romantic as any other destination.

This is a bit more traditional but instead of going to the usual destination of Paris how about somewhere different like Salzburg, Prague, Berlin or Budapest? Or you could even minimise travelling and explore a beautiful place closer to home like Ireland.
