Choosing The Perfect Romantic Gift

by : Donaldl

If you've ever had trouble finding exciting new gift ideas for that special someone in your life, you're not alone. Giving flowers and candy are nice but flowers wilt; and once the candy is eaten it gets forgotten...or added to the hips!

Valentine's Day (February 14) is one of those days which people look forward to in a big way. Lovers express themselves by means of gifts on this day. But a lovely, thoughtful romantic gift is welcome anytime of the year!

The tradition started centuries ago with St. Valentine, who solemnized the union of many a loving young couple in bad times during the Roman regime. Valentine's Day is named in the memory of this noble soul who thought that love was the greatest.

Later, it became a time for lovers to convey their feelings and win the hearts of their beloved ones. No matter whether the love is reciprocated or not, many lovers have been persistent on making this the special day of the year' when it comes to love.

Flowers have a way of saying things without noise. Roses have been a common choice for long. So if you want to convey your feeling, roses are a great way of doing it. But you should know which rose would do it best.

Different roses signify different things. A red rose shows deep romantic love and courage. A lone red rose would be the ideal choice if what you want to do is profess your love in no uncertain terms. White rose signifies innocence and yellow rose indicates happiness and caring.

Flowers are not all. You could gift your lover with cakes, chocolates, handicrafts, poetry or almost anything that you can imagine. All that you need to do is make sure that it is appropriate for the situation. Make sure that the gift doesn't speak too much, nor too little. It has to be just right.

A judicious combination of different gifts would be a good gift idea. Your beloved might be an ace programmer, a music aficionado, a University tennis champion, and a religious person at the same time. In such a case, it would be a good idea for you to plan a gift set that is most suited for her.

In this specific case, a laptop case, a CD with her favorite music, a new tennis racquet, and a beautiful religious symbol might prove to be an ideal gift on Valentine's Day.

Valentine day is the time to celebrate the moments you spent together, the mushy feeling shared, and all the good little things you did together.
