It’s the Thought – and the Gift – that Counts!
Valentine’s Day is fast approaching! People are wondering what gift to give their partner and how to give their partners the most romantic day possible. With many couples, Valentine’s Day puts huge pressure on both partners to choose the right gift, because the value of a gift, of course, varies from person to person – what the giver sees as thoughtful could seem cheap in the eyes of the receiver, or an extravagant gift could seem over the top. It’s all relative!
When it comes to love, it’s our company and undivided attention that are the biggest gifts. Valentine’s is not about how much money you spend or how ‘romantic’ the gift is – it’s about the thought and love that goes into it.
So don’t scramble your brains as you plan what to buy your partner. Read on for a list of suggestions!
i) A V-Day Getaway!
Surprise your loved one with a romantic getaway on Valentine’s Day. It doesn’t have to be an exotic destination far away (though if you can plan it, why not). It can be a simple location outside the city (or even within it) where you have peace, quiet, comfort and a great view.
One of the best ways to treat your significant other is with an unexpected trip to a romantic destination. What better way to spend V-Day than alone together, far away from the hustle and bustle of the city?
ii) Spa Relaxation
An ideal treat for your loved one is a spa day. It’s one of the most comforting and relaxing ways to unwind, and the near-medicinal treatment of a spa helps refresh body, mind and soul.
Spending your V-Day with a clear conscience will help bring up both of your moods even more, and it’ll help you unwind from the hectic daily urban routine that you probably undergo.
iii) Polaroid Camera
Have you used a Polaroid camera? Ubiquitous in the 90s and 2000s, they now only appear in movies? Sure, it may be outdated by today’s camera quality standards, but it has a certain old-school charm about it that no digital advancement can recreate. Snap photos and capture the moment immediately with an instant physical copy.
Use the camera to capture some of the best moments with your partner – and perhaps next year’s gift could be a beautiful collage of all the Polaroid snaps!
iv) ‘His & Hers’ Coffee Mugs
“This morning, with her, having coffee.”Johnny Cash’s description of paradise sounds pretty close to perfect, doesn’t it?
People often underestimate how romantic it is to share a simple cup of coffee with their significant other. Purchase a pair of ‘His & Hers’ to make a soft commitment… say, “I look forward to waking up with you every day.” A great way to get even closer with your morning coffee! You could also purchase a custom-designed mug to suit your partner.
v) Long Distance Lamp
We’re not always in close physical proximity to the ones we love, but long distance relationships have become even more common over the last decade or two. With the rise in technology, messaging apps and social media, couples find themselves able to go the distance (pun intended) a little better.
The long distance lamp is a pair of lamps. One glows when the other is switched on. Stay connected to your partner, even when they’re not there.
There are a plethora of gift options to buy your partner on Valentine’s Day, and we must include the classics in this list – chocolates, wine, perfumes, clothes, or flowers. However, it doesn’t really matter what you give. The most important thing is to put thought in it and make sure that the gift carries all your emotion and love behind it. If it’s a ‘shallow’ gift, trust us – your partner can most definitely sense it.
