Valentines Presents / January 11, 2019 / Cindy Navarro.
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.
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.
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.
Add a few simple words which could be your names or a short love message and have these printed on a stunning love heart design. The Valentines cushion is not just great looking and romantic; it is also comfortable and practical as well as being great quality and long lasting. The Book Of Love Photo books and albums are a good way to show off a large number of pictures. The Book of Love is a unique design that offers the gift giver the chance to include messages of love or captions on every page and is available as either a photo album or photo book variation. This can be a great way to update old romantic photos and you can even use the opportunity to update some of your partners favourite wedding photos. Valentines Puzzles Wooden jigsaw puzzles can also be converted into personalised gift ideas for any event.
Again sometimes less is more - though your primary concern should always be what the person in question would like - dont get an overly soppy card for a person that might like something more elegant for example - and try to match it to the gift wherever possible. Chocolates too can be confusing - but a good rule of thumb is to pay attention to where they like to get their favourites from and grab a box of them for them. Thorntons and other bespoke chocolate brands are usually hard to go wrong with. When picking jewelery for a valentine the most important thing to consider is whether and when theyll wear it. Most valentines gift sets are designed to be understated but pretty so consider what set would suit the style of your beloved the best. These valentiness presents are often easiest to keep secret because you can buy them in most cases without needing to know what size required. A good tip for buying a ring or sized piece is to take a similar one that you know fits with you to compare and ask for the size. Be aware too though that resizing can take up to a week so you may need to order in advance.
