Valentines Presents / January 11, 2019 / Lauri Cooke
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.
The board is then cut into shape according to the size of puzzle you pick and a display tin is created. While it is standard to include the image on the tin you may also go for the surprise option so that the recipient must finish the puzzle in order to read the message or see the picture that you used. Coasters And Placemats If youre planning a romantic candlelit meal then why not finish the table with customised table settings? Placemats and coasters can be customised with any photos or text in the same way as any other item. You could use a picture of the two of you together and then further personalise it with the date and a brief Valentines message. Gift Boxes And Cards Whether you choose a personalised Valentines gift or not your present can benefit from a photo gift box.
And love shouldnt be about the price tag. Find the perfect present Finding the perfect present takes quite a bit of thought - there are a lucky few who have a partner with a job or hobby that are easy to buy for but for most of us Valentines presents take a lot of thought - especially if your partner has almost everything he or she already wants. Some great fall back options are computer games or other consumer products that theyve expressed an interest in but havent bought yet (though be careful that they havent already bought it and its not already on its way!). This is a solid way to show that youve been paying attention to them without needing to ask them if theres anything they want and allows you to pick a Valentines present that will surprise them.
