The charm of Valentine’s Day is in the air. There is a sense of urgency in couples to buy gifts for their beloved and I am being used as a sounding board to bounce Valentine’s Day gift ideas for a lot of my friends. I know things will reach a feverish pitch as THE day approaches. There will be last moment cancellations and flipping of ideas. Amidst all this chaos, the one thing that popped up in my mind is to try and figure out what you should keep in mind while choosing a Valentine’s Day gift.
Choosing a Valentine’s Day gift is not going to a shop at the last minute and picking up something up on an instinct. It requires planning and carefully understanding the tastes and preferences of your sweetheart. If she’s not into music, there’s no point giving her an ipod, no matter what the cool quotient is. And when you get a Valentine’s Day gift, try not to let your money talk. It’ll earn you more brownie points if you get something that has emotional value rather than something that costs a bomb, but looks awful. If you have to get something golden, get a golden watch and not a golden football!
Artistic value is always appreciated, no matter what the occasion. Especially so on Valentine’s Day. Do you agree with me? What factors will you be keeping in mind while choosing your Valentine’s Day gift? Chime in!
