Valentine’s Day is coming up quickly. To avoid getting caught at the last minute without a gift for your sweetheart, it’s time to start shopping now! Really good Valentine’s Day gifts, the kind that he or she will remember for years to come, are the ones that go beyond chocolates or flowers. Here are a few memorable gift ideas for both men and women.
- A necklace – One traditional Valentine’s Day gift for your wife or girlfriend is a diamond pendant, often in the shape of a heart. This is a fairly common gift, since many jewelry stores advertise sales on heart pendants around Valentine’s Day, but many women love getting diamond necklaces as gifts.
- A tennis bracelet – You can’t go wrong with jewelry! Another great gift for Valentine’s Day is a diamond tennis bracelet. This classic gift is fun enough for a minor holiday such as Valentine’s Day, but demonstrates your feelings on a day that is surely important to her.
- A wristwatch – Although watches aren’t as often worn as they used to be, thanks to cell phones (which tell the time just as well), they are still an important fashion accessory for many women. There are many beautiful diamond ladies’ watches available that are sure to delight the special girl in your life. With ladies’ watches, fashion is often more important than functionality, so look for a style that you know will please her!
- A wristwatch – A lot of men these days are in need of a good watch, not just to tell the time (we have cell phones for that now) but also for the way it looks. A nice watch can look classy, stylish, professional, or all of the above, depending on what kind of watch you get. Make your gift extra special by engraving a short personal message on the back of the watch.
- Diamond cufflinks – If your man likes to dress up, or has to get dressed up often for work or special functions, get him a pair of diamond cufflinks. Nothing says class like cufflinks — putting on cufflinks is the man’s equivalent to putting on a string of pearls, or putting your hair up in a French twist. Cufflinks are sure to be a treasured gift!
- A money clip – A wallet is kind of like a tie: an almost clichéd gift that many women think of first when purchasing a gift for the man in their lives. A money clip, on the other hand, suggests class and good taste, and is an entirely different sort of gift than a wallet. Money clips range from simple taste to more elaborate styles, and enable you to add a personal touch by engraving a short message on one side.
It may seem like Christmas just ended, but now is not the time to give up on giving gifts! Start planning now for Valentine’s Day, and you will have plenty of time to pick out the perfect gift.
