Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to show that special someone how much you truly care about him or her. You could default to the cliche by surprising your loved one with chocolates or flowers, but let’s be honest, would this really be a surprise?
Chocolates and flowers are wonderful Valentine’s Day gifts, but there are other thoughtful gift ideas that will truly surprise your sweetheart and leave a more personal memory of this year’s February 14. When in doubt of a gift idea, a no-fail strategy is to make or buy something personalized. It is most definitely the thought that counts.
Guess what? February 14 happens to fall on a Saturday this year! Isn’t that wonderful? If you are looking for a genuine gift to give to a special lady, consider waking up early to make her breakfast in bed. She will surely appreciate this gesture. Actions can mean a lot more than material things, and not to mention, what a wonderful way to kick-start the weekend. For a sweet tooth, try something like these strawberry pancakes. For one who loves a savory breakfast, take a look at this adorable platter of heart-shaped eggs and bacon.
Sticking with the personalized theme here, a gift that would suit most guys is a new set of glasses or mugs for their beverage of choice. For a man that loves a beer, you could get a monogrammed beer mug to brighten his day after a long day of work. You could also design monogrammed coffee or tea mugs to remind him of you every morning before he starts his day. Alternatively, breakfast in bed is also a sure-fire way to make a special man happy on Valentine’s Day!
Gifts for all:
Nothing says ‘I love you’ like a present that fuels your partner’s or friend’s passion or hobby.
For the artist: You could personalize a favorite photo into a memorable frame. Make it tastefully modern by having it printed on glass through local business Fracture.
For the foodie: If he or she has a favorite chef, think about getting their cookbook. Also consider what type of things he or she loves to cook and tailor your gift to that. Some examples include a new knife set, pan, blender or authentic spices and sauces.
For the fitness enthusiast: To fuel your partner or friend’s healthy hobby, search for an eco-friendly water bottle like this one here.
For the fashion-forward: What are the latest new trends? Treat your best friend to a fun statement jewelry item or a gift card to their favorite retailer.
