Valentine's Day Gift Guide

Acts of Service

11 Ways To Make Your Love’s Life A Little Easier

Gift your Valentine acts of service by making plans and taking care of business.

As Valentine’s Day approaches, we’re looking to Gary Chapman’s New York Times bestselling The Five Love Languages as a guide for gifting. According to Chapman’s widely adopted theory, we all express and experience love in different ways, and when our loved ones speak our love language—through words, touch, service or gifts—we feel adored and understood. So, this Valentine’s Day, our gift to you is a female founder guide for using the love languages to give better, more meaningful gifts.

For the person who appreciates acts of service as a way to the heart, ask yourself what you can do to make his or her life a little easier—or a little more decadent. That could mean drawing a CBD-infused bath or taking over a project that they’ve been meaning to do, like organizing all those old photos. Perhaps it’s a surprise photoshoot. When in doubt, give your partner an afternoon to themselves with a certificate to recharge with a really great message at Chill House.
