Valentines Presents / January 10, 2019 / Imelda Chang
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.
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.
The love you feel for the person you hold dearest is no laughing matter and one most people wish to honor with a gift that will go on forever. Trawling endless shopping malls and hunting through a sea of red hearts and flowers in the run up to Valentines Day is no fun and sometimes we look for the right things in all the wrong places. Choosing a gift that has some meaning should start with knowing the right impression you want to give. You know how you feel about someone but it is not always the easiest thing to know how to express that love. Men find choosing the right Valentines gift especially difficult and tend to ask advice from department store sales staff about what to buy; not the most impartial person to ask! Take the time to think about the person you are buying for.
