We've been talking about perfect pairings all month on Instagram (What? You don't follow us on Instagram? Get on it!). So naturally, we're thinking about the perfect pairs that exchange gifts with each other this season. Looking for that special something that isn't a thing?
1. Tandem Skydiving
Nothing says "we're in this together" like strapping yourself to another person and jumping out of an airplane. Of course, if you're both first-timers, you're actually each going to strap yourself to a stranger and then jump out of the plane. For the adrenaline-junkies, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better date.
2. Dance lessons
Salsa, ballroom, swing. If you want to polish your moves or pick up a new style, you and your S.O. should check out a dance class. Not sure where to go? Get on Groupon and you're bound to find something that suits you.
3. Cooking class
Shakespeare may have written that music was the food of love but you know what else is the food of love? Food. Every chef de cuisine needs a sous chef. There can be no sweeter or more savory way to enjoy each other's company than by creating and sharing a meal. (Like with the dance classes, hop on Groupon to find the perfect culinary experience near you.)
4. Wine / beer tasting
Wineries and craft beer breweries are everywhere these days. Sure, you could equip your basement to distill some hooch of your own, but why not let the experts do that while you enjoy the fermented fruits of their labor? Don't settle for a single bottle. Pick a brewery or vintner near you and head out for a flight.
5. Photography adventure
Don't discount the romance behind a shared adventure that doesn't involve any of the above. Setting out on an adventure together to create something or see something new is a great way to grow closer. An awesome way to do this is with a photography tour. It can be a day outing or a dedicated vacation. Let us Google that for you.
