Did you personify the typical male stereotype and wait until the last minute to shop for your lady? Fear not. Take advantage of these amazing Denver gift ideas, most of which can be purchased online, and she'll be none the wiser to your procrastinator ways.
Day at the Spa - can purchase online!
Let your lady relax and unwind with a day of pampering at the ultra-chic Woodhouse Day Spa. With two convenient locations to suit your needs (Uptown and Lone Tree), the recommended treatment is the tandem (or four-handed) massage. Your lady will love this unique service, and will be refreshed and grateful when she returns to you.
Date Night - can purchase online!
Has it been awhile since you've had a real date night? Does your lady miss getting dressed up and hitting the town? There's nothing wrong with date nights that entail D.P. Dough delivery and Netflix, but let's face it, it's good for relationships to keep things fresh. A little night on the town never hurt anyone (that is, unless you're Steve Carell in the movie Date Night).
Impress her by taking her out for cocktails or dinner at The Edge, inside the new Four Seasons Hotel. Follow that up with a show at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, a movie at the Denver Film Center, or a show at Comedy Works.
Adventure - can purchase online or by phone!
Give her a taste of adventure this holiday with a gift of adventure. Options include, but certainly aren't limited to: jumping out of a plane with Mile-Hi Skydiving, taking a scenic helicopter tour with Colorado Vertical, or paragliding through the foothills with Colorado Paragliding.
Weekend Getaway - can purchase online!
Book a weekend away without the hefty flight expense by keeping it closer to home. Be it the culture-rich epicenter we know as Santa Fe, a western slope wine excursion in Palisade/Grand Junction, or a resort town rendezvous on the slopes of Steamboat or Telluride, the two of you are bound to have a great time escaping your normal routine for a couple days.
The bonus with this gift is that it also benefits you!
Learn a New Skill - most can be purchased online!
Has your lady been talking about picking up a new skill or hobby? Consider paying for her to take a class to accomodate her wish. Great ideas include cooking schools, amateur massage (alone or with you as a couple), jewelry-making, pottery, or a session making your own beer or wine.
Check into The Seasoned Chef, Generous Servings, or the new Stir cooking schools for culinary and mixology classes. Check Colorado Free University (don't be fooled by the name, unfortunately it's not free) for a current listing of courses on various topics, such as those mentioned above.
Once again, most of these gifts are win-wins; you will benefit from her newfound knowledge, and she will love your thoughtfulness.
Last Minute Advice
Although these gifts might cost a bit more than say, the latest Taylor Swift album she wants, your efforts will go a lot further and you will win bonus points with her friends and family (especially important if it is somewhat early on in a steady relationship) for your gift-giving prowess.
Just don't set the bar too high, remember Valentine's Day is a mere 7 weeks away.
