This Valentine’s Day more than 35 million heart-shaped boxes of chocolate and $14.7 billion in flowers will be gifted, but is it all for naught? What loved ones around the world really want, says TIME Magazine, is to celebrate by experiencing something special. A whopping 82% of people surveyed would rather receive an experience as a gift than something in a box.
For lovestruck Casanovas hoping to make an impression this holiday, charity auction site Charitybuzz.com has hundreds of over-the-top experiences to sweep that special someone off their feet. It’s all part of the “Lots to Love” Valentine’s Day Charity Auction. The best part is that every winning bid supports a remarkable charity making a difference.
Here are some incredible ways to gift the perfect experience this Valentine’s Day:
Spice lunch up with a celeb: Who says third wheels are a drag? Jon Hamm, Kerri Russell, Paul Rudd, Rosario Dawson, John Slattery, Bill Hader and many more stars are auctioning off the chance to bring them along on your next lunch date!
Make your next concert a night to remember: Meet legendary musicians like Paul McCartney, Tony Bennett, Katy Perry, Sting, Paul Simon, Celine Dion, KISS and many more backstage at their upcoming shows.
Have a star-studded adventure: Treat your one-and-only to a surprise they’ll never forget. Become an extra in the last season of Boardwalk Empire, hang out with Bryan Cranston backstage on Broadway, or play backgammon with Woody Harrelson. There’s even the chance to go paddle boarding with Alanis Morisette!
You can bid on these and other charity auctions here.
And Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone from Celebrities Do Good!
