A bouquet of red roses on Valentine’s Day could set you back hundreds of dollars. They’re lovely to have and will earn you major points for romance, but sadly, they last only a few days. This Valentine’s Day, why not give your other half gifts that will last longer than a week? Here are some great ideas:
Aromatherapy candles are a nice gift for those who enjoy a little R and R. They are quite romantic and sure last longer than a dozen red roses.
There are scented candles that mimic the smell of roses; buy a set as a V-Day gift and earn some major points for thoughtfulness.
Jewelry is also a popular alternative to roses during Valentine’s Day. Elegant gold bangles and statement necklaces are great options for jewelry gifts. But if you’ve decided to pop the question on V-day, go for a Moissanite ring. It’s cheaper and actually looks better than a diamond ring.
A staycation in a luxurious hotel can double as a romantic getaway for busy working professionals during Valentine’s season. But if you want to get out of the city, you can surprise your partner with tickets to your favorite overseas destination for Valentine’s Day.
For book lovers, a new book is like a new world waiting to be discovered. If your significant other is a bibliophile, a boxed set of their favorite books in hardcover will surely make their year. If they’re the romantic or old soul type, a book about love poems is perfect for the occasion.
People have great admiration for men who pick out lingerie for their ladies. If you haven’t done so, Valentine’s Day is a great occasion to surprise your lady with a boxed set of nice lingerie. Perhaps buy a matching perfume as well.
This particular time in February can be very stressful for the non-single, like you. But it is also your chance to set the bar high when it comes to sweet nothings. Use the tips outlined above to improve your gift-giving game this Valentine’s Day.
