Valentines Presents / January 11, 2019 / Mara Beasley
But poor St. Valentine as is usually the case with secret clauses was caught and sentenced to death. Legend Two Another legend claims that Valentine was a prisoner who fell in love with a young woman who came to visit him regularly. Legend has it that this visitor was his jailors daughter. On the day of his death on February 14th 269 A.D. Valentine wrote her a love letter signed with: "Your Valentine." And that ladies and gentlemen is how the phrase "Be my Valentine" came into being and of course why we exchange Valentines Day presents. Legend Three Whats more the pagan Romans had a fertility celebration in the middle of February called Lupercalia. Many folks believed that spring brought the renewal of life in the middle of February therefore a "love lottery" was held.
Canvas Prints Pick a single photo and have it printed on canvas. You can even write a short text message or caption that is included around the edge of the photo on the front of the canvas or have the message printed on the back of the frame. The choice of photo is down to you and you can choose between pictures of people places or objects. One of the simplest but most effective ideas is to use a picture of the two of you together. Photo Montages Why choose a single photo when you can use many different pictures instead? Publishing applications like Microsofts Publisher can be used to great effective montages that consist of a number of pictures but if youre not confident in creating your own photo montage you can let a professional design team do the work for you.
And love shouldnt be about the price tag. Find the perfect present Finding the perfect present takes quite a bit of thought - there are a lucky few who have a partner with a job or hobby that are easy to buy for but for most of us Valentines presents take a lot of thought - especially if your partner has almost everything he or she already wants. Some great fall back options are computer games or other consumer products that theyve expressed an interest in but havent bought yet (though be careful that they havent already bought it and its not already on its way!). This is a solid way to show that youve been paying attention to them without needing to ask them if theres anything they want and allows you to pick a Valentines present that will surprise them.
