Valentines Presents / January 11, 2019 / Chris Burris
Sound nice? No. Not nice. Just truly truly terrible. Unless youve been buried underground youve probably been inundated with Valentines present ideas via spam emails and TV adverts constantly advising you not to forget your sweetheart; imploring for romantic getaways... weekend theatre tickets... restaurant deals...... Valentines day presents for men... Valentines presents for her... the list goes on. Whether Valentines Day is a delight or fills you with fright when and why did this event turn into such a big deal? Does anyone actually remember the origin of February 14th and what its original meaning was? And what on earth happened to the good old days of cards sealed with red wax left secretly at a lovers doorstep... cutting out paper hearts... gobbling down a couple of powdery sweets embossed with Be Mine and being done with it? As we know it Valentines Day is a time of year when theoretically the lovely lady or gent in your life flatters you with Valentines presents usually in the form of chocolates...sweets... roses... clothes... hats or stuffed animals.
However if you do not want to take the risk the safest way to buy her Valentines presents is to know the kind that she uses and buy one for her. Perfume Bottle Though the scent is the first thing to consider you should not forget the perfume container because women also pay attention to the perfume container. They like it when their perfume bottle is elegant and unique. There was a time when a Valentine card or gift was purchased for only a lover or someone we felt we would like to be a lover! Now Valentines presents and cards are purchased for friends and family and some of the most valued are the anonymous offerings that might or might not be from that special someone! Valentines gifts range from party balloons to perfume to woolly socks with funny slogans embroidered on the sides; fluffy teddy bears and cuddly devils with bright red horns with the legend I Want to Be Your Little Devil printed over their hearts; sexy underwear and not-so-sexy pom-pom hats with Love Muffin tattooed over both ears! For that special Valentine however that person you really cannot live without a gift can be an agonising choice and one you want to mean something lasting and enduring.
Again sometimes less is more - though your primary concern should always be what the person in question would like - dont get an overly soppy card for a person that might like something more elegant for example - and try to match it to the gift wherever possible. Chocolates too can be confusing - but a good rule of thumb is to pay attention to where they like to get their favourites from and grab a box of them for them. Thorntons and other bespoke chocolate brands are usually hard to go wrong with. When picking jewelery for a valentine the most important thing to consider is whether and when theyll wear it. Most valentines gift sets are designed to be understated but pretty so consider what set would suit the style of your beloved the best. These valentiness presents are often easiest to keep secret because you can buy them in most cases without needing to know what size required. A good tip for buying a ring or sized piece is to take a similar one that you know fits with you to compare and ask for the size. Be aware too though that resizing can take up to a week so you may need to order in advance.
