Valentines Presents / January 11, 2019 / Chris Burris
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.
4. Blue Valentine (2010). Do you really want to watch a film about Dean and Cindys failing marriage? This movie paints a sombre painful portrait of a toxic marriage: two young people fall in love and then they fall out of it. This definitely isnt a date movie let alone a movie for February 14th. You have been warned. 3. Irreversible (2002). How about a big helping of misery followed by a dollop of - you guessed it - more misery? Yeah "Irreversible" delivers. This film features a continuous nine-minute rape scene. The rest of the movie is on occasion just as bad. Theres really nothing more to say about it. 2. Antichrist (2009). Almost any Lars Von Trier flick could make this list but "Antichrist" tops it. Its a sure-fire relationship killer unless you consider watching private parts getting mutilated romantic.
If they value the love you feel for them above all else then a sentimental gift is by far the better choice: something of the earth perhaps; a gift that will last forever just as the love you feel will endure for eternity. A Valentines gift need not cost a fortune and no true Valentine would expect you to pay out cash you can ill afford on their behalf. A Valentines gift should be a token of everything you feel about your Valentine: a connection; a unique symbol of affection and love; that piece of love and friendship in your pocket that reminds you to stay positive because you know how much you are loved. A gift that can be shared is also a great gift - one for me and one for you. Simple. Loving. Effective. Coming up with unique or personalised Valentine gift ideas can be incredibly difficult what with all the high street stores trying to sell you the generic Valentines presents they cart out every year such as chocolates flowers or teddy bears holding a heart.
