First Valentine’s Day is always special for spouses and thus must be celebrated by making it more memorable for each other. The best way to do this is by spoiling one another with gifts. If you’re confused about what to buy as a present for your husband or wife on your first Valentine’s Day together, here are some romantic gift ideas to your rescue:
Couple Tees/ Couple Rings
Couple tees are all the rage these days and will make for a perfect Valentine’s gift for your wife, especially if she loves the public display of affection. Wear them on a holiday or even on the next trip to the mall and you’re sure to grab eyeballs and be showered with attention. That aside, you’d be shelling out some serious #couplegoals on social media by flaunting these t-shirts. You can simply buy these tees off the internet or even get them custom made for your loved one. Another way to spice up Valentine’s Day is by getting a couple rings, which are a mark of commitment and loyalty.
Writing a Love Note
Writing poetry or a love note is the most romantic way to get your husband or wife swooning over you. If rhyming words do not come naturally to you like most people, worry not. Pour your heart out in a letter instead to confess your love to your spouse. This letter could shed light on the things you love about him or her, or what he or she means to you. You could also pen a letter describing your first date together. Needless to say, your partner will keep it close to their heart and cherish it forever.
Take a cue from the song, “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend” if you’re truly looking to indulge your wife and put an instant smile on her face. Whether a diamond ring or a necklace or a delicate bracelet, you cannot go wrong with diamond jewellery. Just apply one basic fact before you buy jewellery for her- your wife’s happiness is directly proportional to the carats in the diamond!
Pillows bearing a lovey-dovey photograph of you and your husband or you and your wife, or a mug with a special message addressed to your Valentine will add a personal touch to your gift and make it even more precious. LED lamps, cushions and bottles are also a great way to light up the day for your Valentine, making it unforgettable.
The next best thing to gift your wife after diamonds is make up. Based on the makeup preferences of your wife, you could either keep everything in hues of pink or red since these two colours not just predominantly appeal to women but also go well with the mush associated with Valentine’s Day. Make sure to keep all the make up in a vanity box and make it appear more romantic by wrapping it up in glossy paper, lace and pearls. This is the time to let your creative juices flow!
Flowers and Greeting Card
If you would like to keep it conventional, you could take the traditional route by springing a sweet surprise on your Valentine on Valentine’s Day eve by bringing him or her bouquet of red roses (which are synonymous with Valentine’s Day itself!) These days, chocolate bouquets have also caught the fancy of people, so you could gift one too to your husband or wife as everyone likes them! You could make the day more special by adding a romantic greeting card and a red velvet cake to complement the red roses!
Romeo-Juliet Decorative Showpiece
The tales of Romeo and Juliet are sung over the world for their undying love and so, what could be a better way to seal the day than to gift the Romeo-Juliet decorative showpiece to your Valentine on the day of love! Supposed to be a good luck charm for love, the showpiece should adorn a couple’s bedroom as per tradition.
Basket of Goodies
One of the best ways to express your love to your spouse is by getting a basket full of goodies for your husband or wife. Of course, it should have all the things your valentine loves. Perfumes, scented candles, aroma gels, champagne- these are a few things that could embellish the basket.
Put your baking skills to good use by baking a pie or a cake on the day. You could also whip up a meal and lay it out romantically on a table. After all, can the night get more romantic than a candle-lit dinner that is cooked and served by you yourself?!
Decorate the Room
Ribbons, balloons, photographs, candles- go out of your way to decorate the room for your Valentine and the reward will be worth every ounce of effort invested in the initiative!
