Ski Town Love: Three Last Minute Gifts To Get Your Girl This Valentine’s Day
Ski town love. It’s a fragile and complicated thing. Balancing time on the slopes and time with your lady has always been a delicate one. Pow day or Valentine’s Day? These are hard choices gentlemen. If your love of the mountains is interfering with the love of your life, than listen up and take this girl’s advice. Here are three great last minute gift ideas to keep you in her heart and out of the dog house this Valentine’s Day.
Put that smartphone to good use and make something unique that your lady will love in the lift line. Simply submit some of your favorite Instagram photos of good times and adventures spent together to Stitchtagram, and they will do the rest. They’ll make your memories into a throw pillow, tote bag, wristlet, or coin purse. Think this is stupid? That’s because you’re a guy. Trust me. We girls love this stuff, and she’ll think you spent hours combing over pictures, memories, and picking out the perfect gift. Jerk!
Love Is In The Air Basket:
This one is perfect for the ski stud on the go. Pick your lady up a little something special between pow laps or at après. Head downstairs to the spa at Moonlight Lodge for a gift basket designed with her in mind. A 50 minute massage, aromatherapy pillow, Bissinger’s chocolates, a potted rose plant, and a cute little”With Love” book to boot. A little TLC goes a long way, fellas! We may be strong independent women who live in the mountains, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to be made to feel like a lady. Wrap up her massage session with a signature drink in front of the Jack Creek Grille‘s enormous fireplace.
Let’s face it. What your girl wants most is some QT with you. Take her on a ski date and do something you both enjoy. Yes, this may mean going at her speed, lapping her favorite runs, going in when she’s cold, snuggling up by the fire with some snacks and drink specials at Jack Creek Grille, etc. You’ll still be on the hill doing what you love with the one you love. She’ll be thrilled, and deep down so will you.
