Inspired Valentine's Ideas

Editor

Valentine's Day can be a perplexing holiday—and not just for guys. Is it a real holiday, designed to celebrate your love? Or a fabricated fest invented by a profit-hungry greeting card company? Ahem. Here at Tango we think it's actually a golden opportunity to tell someone how much you appreciate them.

 And we're not saying to do it with roses. In fact, we've polled our staff for their best out-of-the-heart-shaped-box gift suggestions. Plus, we dreamed up five quick (and sensual) getaways guaranteed to put the va-va-voom back in Valentine's. 

So if you are playing cupid, originality is key – leave the teddy bears and candy hearts to middle schoolers; here’s a taste of that what we consider innovative alternatives to the yawn-worthy usual.

“What I’d really want: Doing a Babeland or Good Vibrations workshop either alone or with a partner to spice up your sack sessions.”

“Sneak away his iPod and load a playlist on it – it’s the 2008 version of a romantic mix tape.”

“He gave me a gift certificate for a flying lesson last year and told me that he wanted me to feel the adrenaline rush I give him on a daily basis.”

 Now, we just have one question: What does Valentine’s Day mean to you? Take our quiz and pour your heart out--we promise to report back with all the juicy results.

Xo,
Tango
