Valentine's Day in itself comes from a mixture of various convoluted sources. From Christian martyrdom to dark Roman rituals to saints and the advent of spring. Thankfully today’s Valentine's Day celebrations are a bit less complicated! Today, Valentine Day is used to celebrate love with gift-giving and romance. Let's take a look at some of the most romantic gifts to give today.
What Gifts are the Most Romantic for Valentine's Day?
With all the consumerist ideals polluting popular holidays, it’s hard to look beyond simple trending gift ideas. Valentine's Day directly identifies as a time to make lavish and luxurious purchases. Men are practically expected to buy expensive gold and diamond jewelry and make fancy reservations at high-end, fine dining restaurants.
The good news is that it’s perfectly acceptable to protest these traditional principles. You don’t have to break the bank to say, “I love you!” The latest coffee makers, earbuds and perfumes might be 2020’s most popular gift ideas, but there are many more romantic gift ideas out there - such as gift baskets in Toronto!
Make Your Valentine's Day Cozy!
For those of you looking to take a step away from high-end consumerism but still enjoy an excuse to be romantic and share some love and intimacy this Valentine's Day, there are many fun and interesting gift ideas available!
Instead of focusing on making the most loving impression with your purchase, focus on how to make a purchase that encourages and facilitates spending time together.
Not only can you save some money staying on this Valentine's Day, but it can make for a much more intimate holiday!
Instead of making reservations at a fancy restaurant, spend time cooking your favourite meal together and enjoy a romantic, candle-lit meal for two at home! Or forget about a night out in fancy clothing and stay at home in your pyjamas with a bottle of wine and your favourite snacks and Netflix!
Why not add flowers to your Valentine's Day gift basket? (Click here to learn more about the history of flowers and Valentine's Day). It's best of both worlds!
