Five Experiences to Gift This Valentine’s Day
Tired of flowers and chocolates for Valentine’s Day? Okay, we aren’t either, but if you’re looking to step up your game for that special someone, an experience might be just what you’re looking to gift this Valentine’s Day. The beauty of gifting an experience speaks for itself. So whether it’s something you and your partner can experience together or something that person can enjoy on their own time, the gesture can go a long way.
Here are a few ideas if you’re in search of a fun gift:
1 | For the Music-Lover: Tickets to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra
Whether your partner is new to the symphony or is a seasoned concert-goer, tickets to a performance are a perfect gift. Spend the evening listening to a performance of your choice, and head over to Cindy’s Rooftop bar down the street for a night cap overlooking Millennium Park and Lake Michigan. In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, we recommend the Pink Drink cocktail.

2 | For the One Who Needs Some R&R: A Staycation
Who doesn’t love a spa day followed by a hotel stay? We recommend the Aire Ancient baths, where you and your partner can relax in the thermal baths and be treated to amazing spa treatments. Best of all, they have a variety of Valentine’s Day packages for two. Afterwards, check into a luxury hotel downtown for the ultimate staycation. The Walfdorf Astoria, Godfrey, and Langham are all within a 10-minute drive from the baths.

3 | For the One Who Loves a Good Show: A Night out at The Magic Lounge
The Magic Lounge in Andersonville pays homage to Chicago’s magic scene and has been drawing crowds of magic connoisseurs and curious newcomers since its inception in 2015. Get front row seats to watch magic that’s unique to Chicago up close or have a seat in the mezzanine and start the night off with a private show. The best part? The Magic Lounge isn’t limited to Valentine’s Day! Gift some tickets for a future date night. Tickets are available every day of the week throughout the year.

4 | For the Adventurous One: A Private Class at Aloft Circus Arts

5 | For the One Who Loves a Good Dinner Party: An Evening at The Social Table
Avid entertainers will love nothing more than a class at the Social Table. It’s more than a cooking class and more than a dinner. Together, you and your partner will create a meal from start to finish before sitting down to enjoy it as a “family-style meal” with fellow classmates. The class is also great for anyone who loves to socialize and make new friends.
