A decade ago, Valentine’s Day isn’t the commercialized event that it is today. During those days, more than anything else, the day was meant to be a unique opportunity for couples to spend time together. One of my aunts, who married to her love of 10 years, shared her experience of this day with me. My uncle and aunt had a love marriage, against the will of most of our family members. However, I must admit, their marriage is one of the most successful ones that I have seen, so far! |
While discussing with her, I enquired about the various romantic Valentine’s Day gifts that were exchanged during those days. The gifting options that she shared were really unique and belonged to a particular class! So, here I am; sharing these options with all of you. If you are looking for unique Valentine’s Day gifts, then you don’t have to look any further.
She mentioned a premium quality pen set! Yes, I know most of you wouldn’t be that impressed. However, there’s twist in the tale. The pen will have your partner’s name inscribed on it. Now, are we talking love, guys? Surely we are! You can get the name inscribed and turn it into a unique gift.
You can also couple it with a customized dairy. Another boring option, isn’t it? I hope all you girls out there would definitely all the important dates in your life. You can mark those days in the dairy with special messages written about the day. Interesting, isn’t it? You can also go a step ahead and add pictures to the dairy. This way, you will never miss out on any important event and can cherish the dairy for the rest of your lives!
She mentioned that for one their Valentine’s Day, my uncle had made arrangements to visit a palace in Rajasthan, India. One of the posh and antique rooms was booked for the couple. For a day, he wanted her to like a queen! Aww…. Isn’t it romantic? He had arranged for a special boat riding session on Valentine’s Day eve, and made sure they were on the banks of the pond when the clock stuck 12! At 12, they opened the champagne and cherished memories of their togetherness.
On the same day, my aunt had ordered a bottle of antique wine for my uncle. She made sure the wine was served in the antique glassware available at the palace. She wanted my uncle to enjoy the royal treatment!
Then, she narrated an amazing experience of one of their friend. The lady wasn’t keeping well for quite some time and due to this, she was hospitalized. However, destiny had its own plans. The lady started recovering, and on Valentine’s Day eve was supposed to get discharged and return home. Her husband hired a decorator and completely decorated their entire house. There was red carpet spread all over the house. Dining table was decorated with lavish food items. Help was available all over the house for the lady. She was awestruck as soon as she entered the house! I know, you will be having a small drop of tear waiting to fall! This experience in itself truly defines the meaning of this day…Celebration of love and togetherness.
So, instead of picking up any gift from the store, make sure you get something that can be cherished for a lifetime. Make the day special by making your loved one feel special as well! Hope, your mind would be flooded with lots of unique ideas by this time. Go ahead and enjoy the day…
