In Russia, for many years they have been celebrating February 14 — Valentine’s Day with pleasure: they arrange romantic meetings with loved ones, prepare surprises and give gifts. But the catch is that very close to Valentine’s Day on the calendar — February 23 and March 8, the days when also give gifts to our dear people. To please a loved one twice instead of once is great, but the question arises: which holiday is more important? What should be the main focus, and, accordingly, a more significant gift?
Our selection is for those who want to celebrate February 14 with something set and pleasant, but save the main resources for a men’s or women’s holiday.
Sets are a pleasant and almost always appropriate gift for a variety of occasions. In Japan, a whole tradition of gifting chocolate has developed on February 14th. To make it especially pleasant to receive your gift, choose unusual varieties and tastes: for example, our selection includes buckwheat chocolate, on its own and with coconut, and dessert with the taste of traditional Japanese tea.
An interesting analogue of a box of chocolates will be the packaging of good coffee or assorted tea. And for those who love a healthy lifestyle, it will be nice to get a jar of Urbech or a large package of protein, for example, with the taste of ice cream.
Clothes and accessories
If you want to make a romantic gift for February 14, choose mittens for walking together, a Cupid figurine or a pendant with the inscriptions “I love you” in 100 languages.
More practical natures will be pleased with a winter hat, a shopper with a panda or a motivating T‑shirt.
Cosmetics and perfumery
Perfumes with a reference to the color red will be an appropriate gift for Valentine’s Day, as ll as a set of cosmetics with a rose scent.
But in the category “under 10$” you can find many useful products: moisturizing serum, day cream and unusual nail polish.
Household items, books and nice little things
You can start a new life not only with the New Year: an undated planner will help you get things in order from any day.
Pay attention to the colors of the interior in the house of the person you are giving a gift to, so that your surprise fits organically into the new environment: a set of posters, a picture or a pillow with a smiley face can become bright accents.
But a motivating book or an aromatic candle will become quite universal gifts.
