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!

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. Think about it this way: a gift that is created specifically for an individual is more likely to be retained over time. It has more meaning to the recipient and shows extra effort in buying the gift itself. You didn’t just grab something off a department store shelf, you put thought into it.

The next thing you’re probably wondering is what personalized gifts to buy? To give you some ideas, I have included my favorites below:

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

I hope this article has been helpful and good luck with your gift buying journey.

Secret Cupid – A Unique Idea for Valentine’s Day

It’s cold. It’s rainy. What could be worse than sitting around ordering chow mein alone on the national day of love? Valentine’s Day can be a bit of a downer when you don’t have anyone to spend it with, right? Wrong. Don’t fret—you’re not the least bit alone. According to the 2005 Census, 41% of Americans over the age of 18 are unmarried and single. That means that this February 14th is a great day to get together with friends and family who are also single to enjoy each other’s company.

Further, it is an excellent opportunity to go ahead with some creative planning ideas. Might I recommend a game of Secret Cupid? This is a fun and exciting thing to do on a very gift-giving type of holiday. It’s just a Valentine’s Day version of Secret Santa, but it’s the perfect way for single friends and family to give and get Valentine’s Day Gifts.

Gone are the days when singles watched their “attached” friends and family pick out romantic gifts for loved ones on Valentine’s Day. With a simple and fun activity like Secret Cupid, Valentine’s presents are for everyone.

As far as great gift ideas for a game of Secret Cupid, think simple but useful. Picture frames and photo albums are perfect. As are business card holders, clocks, pens and pencils, book ends, flasks, and the like. With these little Valentine’s Day gift ideas, your game of Secret Cupid will be fun and exciting.

Two Tips for Giving the Best Valentine’s Day Gifts

Have a special someone in your life? It’s the perfect time of year to express your feelings to someone. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, there isn’t a better time to do something special to show them that you care.

The most difficult part is figuring out what to do if you want to make them feel special. Specifically at this time of year it can be very difficult to stand out amongst all the lovey-dovey greeting cards and pink and white chocolate boxes. By following these two guidelines, you will be sure to get a perfect Valentine’s Day Gift that will represent your affection and make them know you always have them on your mind.

1.   Make sure to let them know you have done your homework. Anyone can stop by the local florist and pick up a dozen roses (not that you shouldn’t as well—chivalry is not dead), but everyone appreciates knowing that they are admired on a more personal level. Try to find a gift that is related to a hobby that they like. Maybe he’s an avid cigar smoker—perhaps you should get him some cigar accessories. Is she a fan of storing all of her keepsakes? Giving her a keepsake box might just be the romantic gesture you’re looking for. Remember: for this tip, creativity is key.

2.   Tie it into another special occasion. If you’re buying a gift for your spouse or partner, is your wedding anniversary nearby? Perhaps this is a great opportunity to pick up some wedding anniversary gifts along with those roses. Sometimes the best gifts for Valentine’s Day are also the best gifts for another occasion.

During this time of year, it’s a great time to get a gift for that special someone you love. If you remember to get them a gift that has to do with something they care about or one that ties into another part of your lives together, you’ll be sure to be as pleased as they will.

 

Sincerely,
