Valentine’s Day is coming fast! I happen to be very fond of both chocolate and flowers, but I really love personal Valentine’s gifts. What about you? Are you going for a more individual touch, or is your guy, well, too much of a guy for flowers? Fortunately, Cupid stopped in the shop recently and gave us a few Valentine’s gift ideas to help us all along!
Frame a Flower
My bridal bouquet was made of calla lilies, so when I ran across a print of a calla lily years ago, I just had to have it. It’s not a fancy piece, but it is a special piece. It has meaning. Perhaps your loved one would enjoy a framed photo of only her bridal bouquet. Or, if you are an unmarried couple, a framed image of your sweetheart’s favorite flower would make a lovely, personalized gift. Websites like allposters.com or liebermans.net have images you might consider.
Oh, as an added bonus; a picture of flowers won’t die!
Frame a Photo
Give your sweetheart a framed photo of the two of you. It could be from the night you met or a recent trip you took. My husband framed a photo of us from the evening of our 25th wedding anniversary and gave it to me as a gift. Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate your relationship and commitment to each other. This would be a way to say, “I love that we are a couple.”
Frame an Invitation
If you’ve never framed your wedding invitation, now is the time to do it. It really doesn’t matter if you’re newlyweds or have been married for years, this is a romantic gesture.
If you’re not there yet, frame a memento from your first date or special event you attended together. That might include the tickets, program, playbill, or even napkins from your special evening.
Valentine’s Day isn’t necessarily a time for fancy. It’s a time for romance and sentiment. Chocolate and roses are great. But you won’t regret opting for personal Valentine’s gifts!
