I know it’s a bit early, but I’ve been thinking about Valentines Day. You know, I’ve never been big on Valentines Day. Maybe it’s because I remember my grade school days when we had to distribute Valentines Day cards, and there was always some pathetic kid who only got 2 cards compared to the 176 cards the most popular kid got. I wasn’t that pathetic kid, thank god, but there but for the grace of god….
Those experiences throughout my grade school years kind of summed up Valentines Day for me: a contest to see who was the most loved (and by contrast, who wasn’t). Even when I was in a relationship I didn’t pine over Valentines Day (although I did expect a nice dinner. I hate to cook.)
I must be mellowing in my old age because I don’t detest Valentines Day nearly as much as I did when I was younger. For those of you who celebrate the big V, here are some unique gift ideas to celebrate your love.
Cards: The Wit & Whistle is an Etsy shop (of course!) that sells the greatest V-day cards ever. Here are some of my favourites:
Those are my kind of V-cards. 🙂
Jewellery: Forget those diamonds and rubies. What about something sentimental like a lovers’ knot ring from The Love Knot Shop. Made in either silver or gold, these little rings are not only comfortable, they also convey a whole lot more about your commitment than expensive jewellery from a chain store.
Naughty Stuff: This is a great time to expand your naughty inventory (as if you need an excuse.) Here one idea, just to get you started:
Does your lover travel a lot? Work nights? Watch a lot of late night television? Here’s the gift that keeps on giving. 🙂
