Valentines Presents / January 10, 2019 / Gladys Hayden
The country was under the power of the hard-hearted Roman Emperor Claudius II who at the time forbade marriage ceremonies and constantly betrothed Rome in bloody battles. He had a crazy idea. He thought if a man wasnt married he wouldnt mind joining the army. But to his horror Claudius discovered that men were reluctant to join the army because of their loyalty to their wives and families. So he sanctioned a callous order that banned engagements and marriages in Rome. But in spite of this Saint Valentine continued to perform marriage rituals. Thrown into jail it was said that Valentine fell in love with his jailors daughter and restored her sight through his Christian faith and devotion for her. Before his execution Valentine sent her a final message signed "From your Valentine" - a phrase that gets a lot of mileage and one which has become an everlasting symbol of camaraderie and warmth.
Fear not though here are a few ideas that will help you stand out from the crowd. Always try and think unique when buying a valentines gift. You want your special someone to feel special and getting them the same thing millions of other people are getting isnt particularly special. This doesnt mean you have to spend a fortune it simply requires some effort. Something like a personalised CD that has all their favourite songs on is a nice gesture and shows how well you know them. Photo albums or framed pictures of you together are always a popular choice and is fun to reminisce over with a nice bottle of wine. Cooking a meal is another great Valentine gift idea that gets easily overlooked. Sometimes a nice gesture is worth a lot more than a cheap gift that took no effort at all to pick out.
Print a picture on the lid or across the lid and all sides of the sturdy gift box. Available in a selection of sizes the photo gift box is the ideal accompaniment to any gift. You can also create unique Valentines Day cards using any photos captions or text - the only thing that limits you when designing these items is your imagination so you can go as wild or be as reserved as you like.
