Love is in the air. You and your sweetie have just had a fairytale Valentine’s day, with breakfast in bed, a romantic candle lit dinner, and now it’s time to exchange gifts. Whether there’s a happy ending to this story is up to you. Looking for the perfect gift on any holiday can be tough but Valentine’s Day poses a unique challenge to most. Do you go the traditional route or opt for something a little sexy? Is it a time for cutesy romance or is this your second shot at Christmas? Some feel a mix of both traditional and personal gifts works best. Just remember: it’s not the gift that matters as much as the thought behind it.
Nothing says “I Love You” like a bouquet of fresh roses. Don’t limit yourself to just roses though–incorporating their favorite flowers into the mix is especially thoughtful. A heart-shaped vase will make the gift more special.
Whether they enjoy sweet caramels or savory truffles, they’re sure to appreciate a box of gourmet goodies. If they’re really adventurous, try a bacon chocolate toffee. Or try a gift basket, including some cheese and wine for more demanding palates.
Be sure to know what your significant other likes before buying any jewelry. If she’s a ring person, don’t get her a pair of chandelier earrings. And if he’s never worn a pair of cuff links before, maybe you’d be better off getting him a pocket watch
