Valentine's Day Gift Ideas

When it comes to buying your significant other something for Valentine's Day, finding the right gift can be tricky. Whether you would like to give them something thoughtful and heartfelt, or an experience they will never forget, check out our ideas for gifts to give this Valentine's Day!

For Him

Whiskey Tasting Session

If your guy is a whiskey aficionado, he'll love the experience of trying out different local spirits. Check out the Albany Distilling Company!

Take Advantage of the Beard Trend

No matter the reason, beards seem to be trending right now and the end does not seem to be in sight. Buy a beard grooming kit or put one together so he can feel like a rockstar everyday of the week! Beards look so much better when they're properly trimmed - a win for him, and you.

Sports Tickets

Plan a fun date night in Troy and go see the Tri-City ValleyCats play when their season starts up! Afterwards, check out one of the many bars or pubs in the Collar City.

Another option could be to hit up a Siena men's basketball team, as they have games going on around Valentine's Day.

For Her

Paint and Sip

Paint and sip classes are a fun date night idea, especially for Valentine's Day. If the painting on February 14th doesn't spark your interest, book a night where you'll both enjoy the painting that's being taught. Check out Canvas, Corks and Forks in Schenectady - they even have a complimentary mac and cheese bar!

Couples Photos

She'd definitely love a photoshoot of the two of you together! Why do great couple photos have to be for a special occasion like a wedding or engagement shoot? Skip the selfies and consider giving her a photography session in Albany with her favorite person: you.

A Romantic Trip to the Adirondacks

Or, keep it simple: consider a gift card to an Albany restaurant and enjoy a night out >>
