Valentines Presents / January 8, 2019 / Laurel Hawkins
A Montage Of Love If you find it difficult to pick a single picture or you want a more unusual design a montage of love can also be created using the same high quality materials and printing processes. A professional design team works sympathetically with your pictures in order to create a stunning montage of pictures. Again you can add text to the front of the canvas if you wish or you can add a short message to the reverse. Alternatively you could create a personalised Valentines Day card and display just photos on your canvas print. Valentines Cushions Another great use for photos of the two of you together is the Valentines cushion. As well as being able to create your own unique design using photos and pictures a popular design is the Valentines love heart cushion.
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.
Legend One As one of the legends goes in the 3rd century there lived a priest named Valentine. The Roman Emperor Claudius II was ruling at this time and Valentine like many of the public under Claudius rule disliked him with a passion. Claudius wanted all men to join the army. But because men had wives and families of their own these men werent so keen on signing up. Believing a singleton soldier was a better soldier than a married young man Claudius introduced a callous new law which banned marriage ceremonies. In Claudius opinion this would mean more strong young men would join the army with no wives at his disposal. Valentine the priest thought this new law was outrageous so what did he do? He married couples in secret.
