Valentines Day is just around the corner and if you still cannot figure out what gift to give her an advice would be to give her perfume. This is a classic and one of the best Valentines presents be it for men or for women. Women love to smell nice every time and no gift can make her feel sexy and fresh other than perfume. This is a must-have for every woman so you cannot go wrong with this choice. The next thing you have to think about is how to get her the fragrance that she wants. Know the Different Types of Perfume This will guide you on what perfume to buy for her. Perfumes come with different concentrations and here is a classification of perfumes according to their concentrations: Eau de Parfum Eau de Toilette Eau de Cologne and Eau de Fraiche. The first one has the strongest scent while the last has the weakest scent.
But the main reason behind buying valentines gifts for men and women was in fact a kindly cleric named Valentine who died over a thousand years ago... As history would have it Valentines Day derived from the Roman pagan fertility celebration known as Lupercalia which was held on February 15th. During this ritual a young man would draw the name of a young woman in a lottery and would then keep the woman as a sexual companion for the year to promote fertility and deflect disasters. Then in 496 A.D. Pope Gelasius wanted to add a Christian slant to the pagan celebration a day earlier. He made the conscious decision to pay tribute to a young soldier who lived in Rome who was put to death for his Christian beliefs on February 14th 269 A.D. This young soldier then became dubbed Saint Valentine.
Of course choosing the right Valentines presents for him and her is important. But if you want a night of romance its just as important to get the movie right on this night of love. Because if you dont you can bet your bottom dollar you wont be getting that "loving feeling." Snuggling up with your sweetheart eating chocolates and sipping wine wont be part of the programme. Anyone can run out and rent a romantic film starring Julia Roberts for Valentines Day. Anyone can stream the latest passion-infused offering from Kate Hudson - or Jennifer Aniston or Drew Barrymore. Anyone can immerse themselves in Pretty Woman Bridget Joness Diary or Romeo and Juliet. But it requires real bottle to sit down with that special lady or gent in your life and take one of these hugely unpleasant choices.
