Valentine's Gift Ideas For Pilot - Wingman
love note

If your pilot is away for Valentine's Day, you can still leave them a trail of love letters to find.

Love Letters

When your pilot is working on Valentine's Day it can be difficult to come up with a way to show them you love them.

Little love letters hidden in their luggage and flight bag can remind them how much you love them.

Tuck one in their headphone case, another with their sunglasses, maybe "I'm 'shaving' myself for you" in his toiletry bag. You get the idea.

Gift Basket

Another idea if your pilot isn't home on Valentine's Day is to arrange to have a gift basket or their favourite food delivered to their hotel.

Hotel food can be expensive and is often not great quality so your pilot is sure to appreciate a special treat.

You may wish to check with the company if they can make alternative arrangements in case the plane doesn't end up at its intended destination (as is known to happen at times!!).

Send your pilot a gift basket or hamper of their favourite goodies to enjoy on their layover.

Passport Cover - since their passport gets a lot of use, it's a great idea for them to put it in a cover. What better cover than one which reminds them how much you love them every time they look at it?
