Find your favorite childhood VHS or DVD

Picking out your favorite childhood movie from Goodwill’s wide selection tells a lot about your personality and your childhood. After you have dinner in your hand picked outfits, cuddle up on the couch and watch your favorite childhood movies. Make some popcorn and enjoy each other’s company while reminiscing on old times. Goodwill has a large selection of different movies and you never know what you’ll find. With such a wide variety, it’ll be hard to pick just one! The real question, however, is are you a Disney Princess or Pokémon fan?


Pick out a gag gift

Everyone loves a good gag gift. You don’t need to limit yourself to a work or family gift exchange to partake in the giving and receiving a hilarious gift. Pick out a gag gift for your significant other for under $5. It can be anything you want it to be, as long as it makes you (and hopefully your significant other) laugh. Goodwill has some great gag gifts. This item will be a great piece of memorabilia for this special Valentine’s Day, so make it as awesome as possible.

End your trip with a walk through the board games/games section

You’ll feel nostalgic as you walk through this section and see all the games you used to play as a kid.  Pick out your favorite board games, buy them, and play them to end your Valentine’s Day date. Goodwill’s game and toy section will truly bring a sparkle to your eye. You’ll spend hours laughing while playing Hungry, Hungry Hippos and Monopoly.


Purchase all of your items (clothes, movies, games) and head out to dinner, or even better, buy some plates and utensils at Goodwill and have a home cooked meal! Enjoy your night with your significant other while reminiscing on the old, simpler times and growing up.

If you didn’t know what to do for Valentine’s Day, you certainly do now. Grab your significant other and bring them to your local Goodwill; it’s sure to be a Valentine’s Day you’ll never forget.
