#2: On-the-Go Airport Valentine’s Day Date Ideas
Airports are not generally thought of as romantic spots, unless you’re a 90’s rom-com in which case that’s where ALL the romance happens:
Doing what you do, I’m willing to bet you could suggest a list of the most romantic airports or the romantic spots in a particular airport.
For example, I’m lucky to live in Portland, OR where our airport is more like a trip down iconic Hawthorne Boulevard than a travel hub:
Because I am familiar with it, I know that I could easily craft a list of hot spots to spend Valentine’s Day in the PDX airport, and I’m sure you will have no trouble coming up with a spellbinding list of your own!

Gathering a list of Valentine’s Day gifts for jetsetters is a shoe-in for any travel blog. Diversify the list by presenting both romantic and practical gifts, so the list can be used for significant others and friends alike.
In addition to helping your readers find the perfect gift for their loved ones, you could also tailor the list to items that you know your readers would enjoy owning as well.
That way they can pick a little something up for themselves while shopping for others.
Check out Amazon’s extensive offering of gifts for travelers which includes everything from travel journals to a TSA approved carry-on cocktail kit (I kinda want one even though I’m not going anywhere)!
