Valentine’s Day is no longer that holiday reserved for those in relationships, determined to one-up other couples with material things and displays of love and affection on social media. Gone are the days of the cliché “I love you” teddy bears with a single red rose and box of chocolate samplers because you have no idea if your partner prefers milk or dark.

These are the 2020’s, where we care more about experiences and making memories than we do about the physical items we place a monetary value on. Besides, memories are priceless, right?

But what if you could have both?! A memory and a physical item to remind you of an experience. Not just any physical item — no trinkets from faraway lands or last-minute gifts from the local drugstore. We’re talking about physical items you (and/or your partner) create yourself.

You don’t need to spend a fortune to show your partner that you care. Spending time with them and doing something new or familiar can be just as meaningful.

So, roll up your sleeves, throw on an apron, and paint, plant, design, create and express how you feel. We have all the fun to make your Valentine’s Day as special as the love you share. Our hosts will walk you through every step of your chosen project, so being “uncreative” is not an excuse!

If you take a look at your local events calendar, you’ll see there’s a project for everyone so that you and your partner can create and connect however you choose. From customizable Paint Nites and partner paintings to Plant Nite, Candle Maker, Design a Sign and more. Our hosts are equipped with a variety of Valentine-themed decorations and hundreds of stencils to give your project a unique and personal twist.

The greatest thing about Yaymaker events is that they’re perfect gifts for any couple. The best friends reminding each other that they’ll always be inseparable. The third daters who have no idea how to handle their first Valentine’s Day together. Even the couples ready to take the next step.

No matter what type of relationship you’re celebrating this Valentine’s, Yaymaker has the experiences to make sure you have a creative adventure that will stand the test of time.
