Travelling on a business trip has many perks, but being away from those you love is not one of them. Holidays can be a particularly rough time, and with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, here are a few ways you can surprise the person you care about from another city or country. Find here some original Valentine’s Day ideas!
Shower in Flowers
Sure, the idea of flowers around Valentine’s Day has been somewhat overplayed, especially considering how much the damn things cost. But being in another city entirely means you have a critical factor on your side – the element of surprise. You call in an order of flowers to your love back home, and not only won’t they expect it, it’ll blindside them with joy.
Letters To The Heart
We’re currently living in the most technologically interconnected time in history. Any information can be communicated from your brain onto someone else’s screen in seconds. But there is no substitute for a classic. In the week leading up to Valentine’s Day, send out a handwritten letter by mail to the person you’re missing back home while on your business trip. For the price of a postage stamp, you’re sending a gift that shows a level of care and foresight that is almost unmatched.
The Skype Dinner
Sure, you Facetime every other day, but on February 14th, do something special. Cook yourselves the same meal, light up some candles and… launch up Skype. This might seem silly to some, but it’s a great way to get you both on equal ground and, for a brief moment, feel like you’re in the room together. Sure, this is a trick of the mind. However, humans are social creatures, and this is a highly healthy way to combat the loneliness that comes with extended business trips.
Leave a Video Note
Similar to the written letter, this is a great way to wake your significant other on Valentine’s Day. Record a short video of yourself telling them how much you love and miss them while on your business trip. If you’re musically inclined, sing them a song; if you’re funny, tell them a joke about when you first met. The point here is to show them that even though it feels like you’re on the other side of the world, they’re the world to you.
This last one is an outlier and isn’t an option for everyone. Say you’ve been travelling on business for 3 weeks and have another 3 weeks to go. Odds are work is expensing a good portion of the trip. Save the money you would have spent on food, drinks, and rent, and repurchase a last-minute round-trip ticket home. Surprise your significant other; it will make this Valentine’s Day one to remember. It also sets the bar pretty high, so start brainstorming ideas on following up with something even better next year!
