Talk-To-Me Tuesday: Vistaprint Calendars

Valentine ’s Day gift ideas! Get your other half something they’ll love.

Valentine’s Day is the day of the year all couples look forward to. A romantic dinner is almost compulsory, as is the exchange of heartfelt gifts. But what gift should you give? Flowers? Too cliché. Chocolates? Even more so! Balancing originality with sentimentality is a tricky task, but hopefully some of these suggestions will help:

Chocolate flowers:

Cliché plus cliché it seems, somehow equals a quirky and original gift. Handmade chocolate from a local chocolatier presented in an unusual shape (something romantic, preferably!) will be well received by even the most reluctant partner.

Personalised calendar:

This may sound like a strange suggestion, but a personalised calendar with photographs from special days you and your partner have shared combines sentimentality with practicality. This gift will keep on giving, as well, as it will be seen on a daily basis by you and your partner. Important occasions like birthdays, Valentine’s Day, and (you guessed it) anniversaries can also be included on the calendar.

A weekend retreat:

Sometimes escaping the hustle and bustle of life with your partner is exactly what the doctor ordered. With the costs of travel falling, a weekend away around Valentine’s Day can be the perfect gift. Why not consider something unusual like a white water rafting weekend, or a wine-tasting weekend spent at a vineyard?

Even with gifts, it’s important to remember that the main purpose of Valentine’s Day is to show your partner what they mean to you, so don’t worry too much if you can’t find the perfect gift! A heartfelt hug will send the message just as well :)
