Valentine’s Day | Flowers vs Presents

The battle is on — flowers or actual presents on Valentine’s Day? This is a heated debate and I hope to clarify it once and for all.

Personally, I’m one to go all out and opt for a combination of flowers, food (classy restaurant) and a gift. But, when looking at the question of flowers versus presents I have to say presents. There is just something about giving a gift that can be kept for many years to come. As with anything though, there’s a catch.

Giving any gift, just something you see in a store window, won’t cut it. If you choose to buy a gift for your loved one as opposed to flowers, you better be sure the gift has some meaning behind it.

I do have to admit I may be a tad bit biased. I have had bad experiences with transporting flowers and it almost always leads to one of the following:

  • Wet carpets that smell like the gardener mowed the interior of my car. I seem to spill the prepared vases, so I stray away from those now.
  • Fingers that are mad at me. I go out, buy this gorgeous bouquet of flowers, then I feel like I must cherish it on the ride home or to my destination. In doing so, given the traffic in Los Angeles, I find myself consistently reaching over and bracing the flowers, which sometimes, unfortunately, poke my fingers.
  • Flowers that look like a right angle ruler. Yes, you heard that right, I was driving and my briefcase fell on the flowers, which snapped the middle in half. The good thing — they still stood up straight (when I held them horizontally).

The solution? Buy a memorable, unique, personalized gift for Valentine’s Day that is useful and will outlast flowers by tenfold.

Valentine’s Day is Coming Up – Where Will You Be?

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching (only 14 days away) and many of us are wondering what we will be doing on the holiday. Some have plans, but many are still trying to finalize things. In this article I will offer a few ideas for things to do on Valentine’s Day.

1) Restaurant

Yes, I know, going to a restaurant on Valentine’s Day is a little cliche, but it does work. As long as the restaurant is classy and quiet you will be able to engage each other in conversation and have a good time. Sometimes a good conversation and spending time together is all a couple needs.

2) Beach

For everyone that lives near a beach, why not take your loved one on a nice stroll or picnic? I have done this before and loved it.

3) Hiking

Though going on a hike may sound a little unconventional, and possibly unattractive at times, it can truly be romantic. As long as the hike is to a gorgeous location, and more importantly is kept at a slow pace, it can be very fun. Remember — this is not the time to train for the Olympics or have Rocky flashbacks, so relax and take it easy.

I hope this article has been helpful and be sure to have a good Valentine’s Day!

Sincerely,

Buying Small Presents for Strangers | Why?

After reading the title of this blog post you are problem wondering why anyone would buy a gift for a stranger. But, in all reality, there are many occasions that call for such. Small, thoughtful presents are sure to leave a good first impression.

When would someone buy a gift for a stranger?

1) For new home buyers, meeting and greeting the neighbors with a small present is an excellent way to become part of the community.

2) If you happen to be hosting a party, why not include party favors? These will ultimately go to friends or family, but also some strangers.

3) Many businesses purchase small gifts as a token of appreciation to clients or potential clients. If they have not worked with the client, a small gift may be sent during the holiday season to help jump start a business relationship.

4) For all of the people that believe in love at first sight, I suggest you surprise your future companion with a unique, personalized present.

I hope this article has been helpful and good luck turning strangers into friends.

Buying a Personalized Gift for Your Girlfriend

So you’ve been searching far and distant lands, throughout the internet, and have been thinking for hours — what can you buy your girlfriend that’s memorable, thoughtful and will be kept for years to come? Well, this is truly a tough question, but there is a solution, so you should not fear.

What is the ideal present for your girlfriend? Simply said, a personalized or engraved gift. It really doesn’t get much better.

  1. Silver Photo Keychain 
  2. Jewelry Box with Rhinestones
  3. Engraved Picture Frame

Northern California Personalized Business Gifts

I lived in Northern California for a short period of my life—by short I mean about half a decade, but there are so many fond memories. Between surfing the hook in Santa Cruz, wine tasting in Napa Valley, and camping in Big Sur, you really can’t ask for more, but Northern California delivers more. Surreal camping, stellar surfing, and the best wine in the world (sorry France) would be plenty, but the long coastal drives along Highway 1, booming metropolises such as Silicon Valley (and the nearby areas: Menlo Park, Sunnyvale, Cupertino, San Jose, Palo Alto, and Mountain View), and the internationally acclaimed style and passion of San Francisco make Northern California one of the greatest and most diverse places in the world.

While living in Northern California, above all else, I learned that appreciative people give gifts. At that, I learned how to give great gifts. From the businessmen in the industrious Silicon Valley, the most prevalent tip is this: for executive gifts, try to be personal yet retain business professionalism. An excellent gift idea for such an occasion is a personalized executive gift. Something such as a personalized leather desk set or a personalized clock is just right. Further from the wine folk in Napa, Saratoga, and Sonoma, the consensus is that a great gift involves an activity. A perfect gift as such would be a wine or beer accessory, with which you and the recipient can sit and enjoy some time together. Lastly, from just about everyone, the typical perspective is that giving gifts for birthdays, anniversaries, Valentine’s Day, christenings, baptisms, and the like is super important and can also be a fun experience.

Have fun, and enjoy the rewarding act of giving gifts.

Sincerely,
