Valentines Presents / January 11, 2019 / Mara Beasley
Use a picture of the two of you together or create a loving message and have this printed onto board before being cut. The display tin can either show a completed version of your design for an extra element of surprise you can leave the tin blank or add a different message so that your boyfriend or girlfriend only reads the message or sees the picture once they complete the puzzle. Placemats And Coasters Many other items from bags to aprons and even chairs can be customised in a similar way through the addition of photos pictures and text. You could customise placemats and coasters to make a romantic Valentines meal that little bit extra special. Valentines Day... So youve been lavished by your lover with Valentines Day presents enjoyed a romantic meal by candlelight together and about to settle down to a romantic movie.
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.
However if you do not want to take the risk the safest way to buy her Valentines presents is to know the kind that she uses and buy one for her. Perfume Bottle Though the scent is the first thing to consider you should not forget the perfume container because women also pay attention to the perfume container. They like it when their perfume bottle is elegant and unique. There was a time when a Valentine card or gift was purchased for only a lover or someone we felt we would like to be a lover! Now Valentines presents and cards are purchased for friends and family and some of the most valued are the anonymous offerings that might or might not be from that special someone! Valentines gifts range from party balloons to perfume to woolly socks with funny slogans embroidered on the sides; fluffy teddy bears and cuddly devils with bright red horns with the legend I Want to Be Your Little Devil printed over their hearts; sexy underwear and not-so-sexy pom-pom hats with Love Muffin tattooed over both ears! For that special Valentine however that person you really cannot live without a gift can be an agonising choice and one you want to mean something lasting and enduring.
