Unique Romantic Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas They’ll Love
The date is standard – the gift shouldn’t be.
Don’t get me wrong, flowers are lovely (I already have some in my garden). But the ratio between effort and expense should not be the end goal to show how much love you’ve invested in your relationship.
Chocolates are wonderful, too. Particularly the ones with hard-to-pronounce names and exotic labels. But let that be the mutual present you both nosh on while watching your favorite late-night tv show together. Better yet, melt them down and dip some — no, not strawberries (again, way too easy). Try fondue.
Okay, where was I?
Yes, romantic Valentine’s Day gift ideas.
Idea One: Give your heart. It is, after all, the most iconic symbol of devotion and lasting affection. Since we went over the silver-foil-wrapped chocolate variety, try something literally out-of-the-box. How about a beautiful gemstone heart? One that is as solid as the foundation of the relationship you thought you had before you brought home the identical 12 long-stemmed roses you did last year.
There are so many beautiful varieties of gemstones to choose from. Look, let me help you.
Better still, add a little ingenuity and pair it up with something really novel and different. You know, something you can both wear when you’re curled up on the couch watching whatever it is you can both agree on.
Idea Two: A designer top you can wear indoors with whatever else you want to match it with, or even when you’re out and about. You know when you pretend to be unflattered when someone compliments you on your taste and hits you with the “Wow – where’d you get that?” question.
Dress it up, dress it down, but be different. That is, after all, what the day should be about. Showing and telling your special girl/guy/love mate/main squeeze/wife/husband that the relationship is still as fresh as it ever was. And as bright as the great idea that drove you to the web browser to get one of these…
Yeah, I threw a necklace in there, too. What are you going to do? I like it. It’s cute.
