Valentine’s Day dates back to the 5th Century after a Christian martyr, St. Valentine, during his imprisonment signed a letter “Your Valentine”. There is much more to the story and details get sketchy, but a fascinating read.
The point of Valentines Day, that has held true over the years, is it’s association to the various emotions of love and romance.
Modern Valentine’s Day typically means giving cards, flowers or presents to your spouse, partner or loved one. You might plan a romantic meal or a night away. Not all Valentine’s Day gifts are for everyone though. If you are wanting to break the stereotype and think outside the box, let’s think about this. Chocolates, flowers, wine and expensive motel stays are just that – expensive….and guess what, they are gone in a blink of an eye.
How about this Valentines Day, pick out your special loved one the gift of furniture – that perfect comfy chair he’s been needing – that accent chest that will set the tone for the room – or that pair of lamps she has had her eyes on.
