How do you make your Valentine’s Day extra special? Think outside the box. Flowers and chocolate are a safe bet but if you really want to impress your significant other, think about what makes them smile.
Valentine’s Day is all about celebrating the love you have for a special someone. It’s the one day of the year we remember how cupid’s arrow brought us together. But finding the best gifts to express that love is a challenge. Of course, there are traditional favourites like roses and chocolate but for something extra special it’s better to think outside the box; to consider what makes your significant other really happy.
Make the Traditional Unique
It’s the thought that counts. Making the effort to buy a gift for your loved one is part of the way you can show what they mean to you. But instead of sticking to the tried and trust “safe bet” of roses and a box of chocolate, make traditional gifts unique and personalised.
For example, Eternity Rose produces a range of romantic keepsakes that revolutionise the gifting of flowers. Perfect for Valentine’s Day as well as other occasions such as anniversaries and birthdays, these single roses – available in a range of styles via the website – are beautifully presented in personalise gift boxes and feature a blossoming flower dipped to preserve its natural beauty.
A popular item is a rose that has been dipped in 24 karat gold, combing the splendour of a single rose with the decadence and beauty of gold. The roses each come with an authenticity certificate as well as a stylish presentation case made of leather. So instead of giving your loved one flowers for Valentine’s Day, you’re giving them “a” flower they’ll never forget and can keep forever.
Turning traditional gifts into more personalised ones is one way to make Valentine’s Day special. There are lots of ways to do this: have a chocolatier right your loved ones name in their favourite confectionary, or try his and her jewellery or get a name engraved in a ring or necklace. You could get an intimate message written in tiles, get him or her a message in a bottle, or personalise a champagne glass.
But if you want to be truly different, consider some less traditional gift ideas. Do an experience day, book a weekend away, or try a leisure activity you’ve never done before. Instead of booking a spa day, why not give glamping a go, sign up for a cooking glass, or map out a “wine crawl”.
Part of getting the right gift for your loved one is understanding where you’re at in your relationship. Are you a new couple or one that’s been together for a long time, for instance. Being “different” means understanding how to be different in respect of your loved one to have the best chance of impressing them.
So how do you make your Valentine’s Day extra special? Think outside the box. Flowers and chocolate are a safe bet but if you really want to impress your significant other, think about what makes them smile. Also consider what might surprise them or, because you’ll know them better than most, what will really make them happy.
