Are you looking for a last-minute item for your Valentine? It can be hard to decide what to get.

There is a lot of pressure to get a piece of jewelry but that can be expensive and may also send the wrong message. Candy can be good but also predictable the same can be said about dinner out.

Unusual Hudson Valley Valentine Gifts

Those ideas are great but why not also throw in something spontaneous and unexpected? Have you ever considered getting your tarot cards read with your Valentine? A dual reading could be fun.

Another out-of-the-box idea is planning an experience that might seem less traditional. Of course, there are things you can do when the weather gets warmer that might seem romantic but what about volunteering now for a day or even once a month at an animal shelter?

If you are a fan of dogs and cats there are plenty of places that would love you to help out. Pets Alive in Middletown comes to mind. You can even find places that have larger animals like horses, pigs, and goats.

13 Hands Equine Rescue in Clinton Corners even has Zebras. If you are looking for something wilder there is always the Friends of the Feathered and Furry Wildlife Center which is well known for its wildlife rehab efforts.

I guess what I am getting at is yes get flowers, yes get chocolate and if you want even to get a piece of jewelry don't be afraid to give your Valentine something they might not expect that is sure to add to the memory book.
