As Valentine’s Day approaches, you want to give that special someone something different this year and need some ideas. I have 3 suggestions for unusual gifts for long running relationships or for those celebrating their 1st Valentine’s Day together. Everyone goes for the chocolates and the dozen red roses, but these gift ideas give a new twist to tell that special someone how much they mean to you.
Valentine’s Just Paper Roses
These roses are “just” paper, but they are beautiful and the presentation is excellent. They ship each order in clear long stem rose boxes with glitter, ribbons, tissue, and a personalized message. It is then packed into a brown cardboard box so as not to spoil the surprise inside. The roses come in singles for $15.95, 3 for $22.95 and 13 for $49.95. The site offers free US shipping on all orders over $50.00. These roses are a little different from the traditional roses for Valentine’s Day and they will last much longer. You can add your personal message at the website and one rose will have that message on it. This is a nice way to give a gift that is personal, romantic, and yet affordable.
“Lil’ Piece of My Heart” Pocket Keepsake
These adorable pocket tokens come in a set of 10 with wonderful little messages engraved on each. Things like, “good for one kiss”, “good for one hug” and “good for one roll in the hay” are found on each token. There is two of each saying in the set. They come in a nice keepsake pouch .The set of 10 tokens and keepsake pouch is only $16.00. Your sweetheart will be surprised by such an unusual and personally giving gift. You will both enjoy cashing them in!
His or Her Own Star
The International Star Registry can help you give your lover the Universe, or at least a piece of it. Imagine how excited your Valentine will be when you tell them you have named a star after them. It is a really simple process; visit the website, select a package and go through the steps. You will receive a certificate with the name, dedication date, and telescopic coordinates of the star. Here’s where you can make the whole thing magical and romantic. You should get a telescope, a blanket, and a nice bottle of wine. Secretly pack these items along with the star information in the car. Tell your sweetheart you want to go for a drive together. Get as far out of town as you can, away from city lights. Pick a nice place in your area. When you get there take out all the items and set up the blanket, telescope and wine. Then tell your Valentine that they mean the Universe to you and to prove it you named a piece of it after them. Then show them the certificate and spend the evening locating the star and being together. The website offers several selections, custom, deluxe, ultimate, Heirloom deluxe, and Heirloom Ultimate kits. The prices range from $54.00 to $489.00.
These are a few different suggestions for Valentine’s Day gifts for that special someone. Don’t get caught last minute shopping in some drugstore for picked over cards and candy. Do something special this year and make it a Valentine’s Day to remember.
