Roses are Red. Violets are blue. Boy, have we got the perfect Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for YOU.
But First, Who is St. Valentine?
The story of St. Valentine and the history of this sweet sweet day has been deemed a mystery; one that we have all seemed to fall in love with. What we do know, is that February has forever been a month of love, romance, and a time to celebrate those who hold a special part of our hearts. But, who is Saint Valentine, and how did he become so embedded in our lives and soooooo crucial to the way we celebrate love?
The Catholic Church recognizes THREE different saints named Valentine. Some stories even suggest that Valentine was killed for attempting to help Christians escape Roman prisons. And one contends that Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome. According to one myth (and our favorite), an imprisoned Valentine sent his first love letter himself after he fell in love with a young girl – possibly a jailers daughter who visited him during his confinement. Before he died, it is said that he wrote her a letter signed “From your Valentine,” an endearing expression that is still used today. Although the truth behind St. Valentine is murky, the legends and stories all emphasize his aura as a heroic, sympathetic and most importantly – romantic figure.
With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching we’re sure you can smell all the love in the air. It’s that time of the year where we show our loved ones how much we care with a dozen roses, chocolates, and naturally our favorite…jewelry, jewelry and oh yes, some MORE JEWELRY! February 14th is that day where we are allowed to go a little … more “heavy” on the details: go that extra mile, you know be a littttttle more affectionate than usual, really show them (or yourself for what it’s worth) how much love there reallllllly is. So why not take in the sweet sweet aroma of love and start planning that special day and …. there’s obviously no better way than with our Valentine’s Day Gift Guide, it’s guaranteed to satisfy. Call us Bias. #whatever
Aside from all those romantic details like making sure not to forget to make a reservation at her favorite restaurant, comes the pressure of finding the right gift for the leading lady in your life. You also can’t forget about how she will pretty much be talking about this for a couple of days to her mom, friends, social network and everyone at work, so of course… no pressure. This is when you start wondering about your options of either getting her perfume and/ or her favorite red lipstick and high heels. But then you also start to wonder if it will coincide with what you just got her over the holiday season and it just ends up being the “easy” way out. Sure, chocolates and dozens of roses will bring a smile to your special lady, but diamonds will really seal the deal. Think about it; why not have her wear something that will last just as long as your love? You want this to be memorable for your significant other and better than the last.
Lucky for you, we have curated the perfect Valentine’s Day Gift Guide to make your Holiday Day stress- free … and BEYOND sparkly.
