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.
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.
