5 Valentines Day Gifts You Might Never Think Of


Every year that dreaded day rolls around, the one where countless expectations go unmet and many a relationship wither away...you know it: Valentine's Day. Possibly one of the most ingenious marketing ploys ever created, V-day serves as a reminder that we are expected to romance and woo our significant other while the whole world watches. Even if you are lucky enough to have a girlfriend or husband who really doesn't care about this blessed event, she or he is surrounded by co-workers, if not friends, the very next day, all eager to hear what incredible gift they received or date the enjoyed.

You know what? You don't have to play that game. You're not here to please the masses or your wife's friends. Your job is to show her that you love her. Or, if you're a female, to show him that you love him. There are a variety of ways to do this, none of which has to be embarrassing or exorbitantly expensive. The best gift you can give is that of knowledge- of showing him/her how well you know them and how much you love them.

5 V-Day Gifts You've Never Thought Of

  • Flowers. I know it's almost a cliche, but if you're just starting off, flowers are a sure bet, especially if you know her faves. An alternative is a different flower every month- you buy 1 flower the 14th of the each month and hand deliver it yourself. The trick here is to not look cheap- make sure you have a card that tells her this is a plan, and not a cop-out.
  • A massage. Man and woman alike appreciate a good massage. A dark room, total relaxation, and some nature sounds are sure to deliver one of the best gifts ever. Plus, if you buy a half-hour massage or a head massage, you can still give an extravagant gift that has a smaller price tag.
  • Recreate your first date as best you can. It's hard not to charm with a good memory and fondness for your shared experience.
  • Do something he or she has asked and you've always said no. Maybe it's a chick flick, or a weekend away, or even time friends. Whether it's with you or not (though it is V-day, being together is kind of the point), give your honey what they've always wanted. It may be as simple as fixing the garbage disposal- just do it in love.
  • Your guy or gal not the romantic type? Try an ergonomic gift- the practical ones love a useful gift that serves a purpose. Why not warm their hearts and their hands?

The main idea in giving a great Valentine's Day gift is to be thoughtful enough to show your significant other that you love them enough to know exactly what they want, be it a different flower every month or a practical ergonomic gift. Give the wrong thing and you've sent the wrong message.
