How good are you at Valentine’s Day? If you’re like a lot of people, you probably wait until the last minute, then scramble to find something that probably has little meaning to the one you love.
You might decide to go with the cliche flowers and chocolates, or a stuffed animal off the Walmart shelf. Hey, at least it’s an effort, right?
This year, it’s time to take it up a notch. Give them a gift that will truly make an impact.
Let’s take a look at three romantic Valentine’s Day gifts that will sweep them off their feet.
1. A Long, Detailed Handwritten Love Letter
When’s the last time you wrote a handwritten letter? It’s truly a lost art. With texting, instant messaging, email and social media, people have forgotten how powerful handwritten letters are.
For this gift, start early. Unless you’re a highly-skilled writer, don’t try to pound it out at the last minute. Take time to consider why your partner means so much to you. Jot down ideas and thoughts you have as you prepare to write a long letter expressing your deep love.
Consider the following topics:
- How you felt the day you met
- The first time you knew you were in love
- What your partner means to you and why
- A song or songs that remind you of your partner and why
- Reasons you’d never want to be with anyone else
- How you feel when you look at them
Put your personality into the letter. If you’re a jokester, work humor into it. Just be yourself. It doesn’t have to be perfectly written.
When Valentine’s Day comes, make sure the letter is wrapped in a box and slip a rose and a piece of jewelry inside as well.
2. You Can Never Go Wrong with Jewelry
What woman doesn’t love receiving jewelry as a gift? The answer is, not a single one!
A carefully selected piece of jewelry that speaks to her heart will set the stage for the best Valentine’s Day ever.
As Valentine’s Day approaches, pay close attention to her collection and the pieces she wears the most. Don’t mimic the pieces she already has, but rather get a general feel for her style and figure out what you can buy that will accentuate her individuality.
Also consider her hobbies and the things she considers beautiful in the world. Does she love butterflies? A simple, yet elegant butterfly necklace is a great way to go. If she’s really into music, there are many options for earrings or rings that are gorgeous and speak to her passion.
Don’t just go out and pick a random piece that says nothing. Although she’ll surely appreciate it, it won’t touch her heart the way a well thought out piece of jewelry by Nano Jewelry will.
3. A Weekend Trip to the Place of Her Choice
For this gift, avoid the temptation of pre-planning the trip for her. Instead, present her a voucher for a two or three-day weekend trip to anywhere she wants to go. She may have ideas that she’s never told you. Ideas that you wouldn’t think of.
Maybe it’ll be a trip to a spa or bed and breakfast a hundred miles from your home. Maybe a weekend at an AirBnB right on the ocean is where she’d like to go. If possible, be as flexible with your budget as you can be. Let her know that she doesn’t have to skimp on the details. It’s all covered.
Even if her choice isn’t at the top of your list of things to do, go with it without complaint. After all, this is about her!
Any one of these three ideas will sweep her off her feet. Pick one (or more) and she’ll fall in love with you all over again.
Have an amazing Valentine’s Day with the love of your life!
