A Procrastinator’s Guide to A Super Last-Minute Valentine’s Day: Gift a Belize Vacation

by Carolee Chanona

Tell us you’re an extreme procrastinator without actually saying you’re an extreme procrastinator. I’ll go first: you still haven’t decided on what to gift your significant other for the 14th this year. Somehow, it’s almost Valentine’s Day—and you still haven’t decided on your present this year. It’s OK, you’re not alone. Might we suggest gifting a Belize vacation? Surprising someone with a trip can be the ultimate present. A memorable travel adventure is almost guaranteed to deliver more long-term happiness than an appliance or gadget wrapped up in a bow.

Surprise trips have the rare power to elevate vacations to already amazing destinations with the pleasures of heightened anticipation and receipt of a meaningful, memorable and once-in-a-lifetime present. Gifting travel may be riskier than giving a cozy blanket or a shirt, but it can also be significantly more rewarding for everyone involved. And if you feel that your planning skills for a surprise trip don’t quite stack up, don’t worry. You can always reach out to a planning professional to take care of everything. You’ve got two options: gifting a plane ticket to Belize, or gifting a vacation stay at a Belize resort. These days, the flexibility allows you to book your stay without actually choosing the dates yet.
