Valentines Presents / January 10, 2019 / Francisca Mccarty
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.
If youre determined to buy something then make sure you visit a dedicated online store such as DotComGiftShop which will have special sections for every occasion. This will save you a lot of time because you wont have to sift through thousands of things to find what youre looking for. Instead of buying one big thing maybe try picking up a few little gifts and putting together a nice package. This shows youve gone that extra mile and really put the effort in. Theres a lot to be said for Valentines Day but one of the few things that many people think is that its very expensive to find a perfect present for their partner. While its important to find something that says I love you effectively its equally important to find something thats within budget and isnt too expensive as budgets are tight for most people at the moment.
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.
