How to Choose a Valentine’s Gift
Though the process of choosing a Valentine’s Day gift might seem like a daunting task in some situations, it is easier than you might think. Do not be afraid to utilize age-old classics such as flower bouquets and baskets of roses. Just don't forget to bring a new concept into the mix. These tried and true ideas have stood the test of time for a reason. A vital aspect of your decision making is to choose something that is original and relevant to your own individual relationship. It doesn’t have to be about how much you spend or how extravagant you can be. It’s all about the emotion and energy that you put into the gift because that is what will be felt by your loved one. Take the time to stimulate your creativity and bring entirely new and unique ideas into the world with a cute and romantic twist.
Tips on How to Pick the Right Valentine's Gift
Think About What They LikeTake a moment to try and remember what they have been talking about or admiring lately. Maybe they have been looking at pictures online or getting into a certain show lately. If they aren’t thinking or talking about Valentine’s Day then the element of surprise will be even easier to attain. Just a little bit of research could create a big difference in what you choose.
Speak to friends and familyThere is no better way to get inside information about your Valentine than to talk to your loved one’s closest confidants. When you tell them you are trying to plan the best Valentine’s Day gift ever, they will likely be very compliant to your goals. This way you can acquire completely new information and ideas that will be sure to absolutely shock your dear giftee. Make your Valentine ask, “How did you know!”
Make it PersonalWhile a traditional Valentine’s Day gift is always powerful, it is essential to add an individualized touch. If you give a bouquet of roses, make sure that you add something distinctive into the package. Hide their favorite chocolate bar in the bouquet or at the bottom of a basket to add another layer of discovery that they will not be expecting.
Be CreativeBring a homemade and DIY(Do It Yourself) element to your Valentine’s Day surprise by thinking outside the box. If you open up your mind, this can actually be very fun. Draw your own picture inside of your card to charm him or her with extra cuteness or make a small origami swan or heart. Even if you consider yourself to be a poor drawer there is no excuse because that will make it even more adorable and authentic! The possibilities are endless. Think of this as your time to enjoy yourself and build something from your heart in an innocent and spontaneous way.
Connect to your HeartTo truly create beauty, we must act from a heart centered space. The first step to connect with someone else’s heart is to establish ourselves within our own heart. Take this moment to pause and reflect on what makes your heart throb when you have loving, intimate and romantic moments. Feel this love and you will naturally come up with an incredible way to make this Valentine’s Day special and unforgettable.
Presentation is ParamountEven if you do all of the above, do not overlook the importance of a beautiful presentation. This is the icing on top of the Valentine’s cake that will tie all of these concepts together into the final masterpiece. Make a neat and tidy display of all that you have lovingly put together to create the ultimate Valentine’s moment to remember forever.
