Enchanting Gift Ideas
Valentine’s Day is the one special day of the year when tokens of affection are given to family members, close friends and specific loved ones. February 14th is a day set apart for the display of emotion, devotion, passion and sincerity. It is not only a day for sweethearts, but a day filled with sentiment and feeling for anyone sharing a special bond. Since the 19th century, Valentine’s Day has been celebrated with flowers, candy and of course, the everlasting gift of fine jewelry.
Traditional gifts include heart shaped designs, as the heart is thought to be the center of all human emotions, and since love is a strong emotion, heart shaped jewelry is a classic gift of love. Other popular Valentine’s gift ideas include love knots, friendship bracelets, cuff links, message and personalized jewelry.
There are also certain colors associated with Valentine’s Day. Orange represents a possibility of love, pink is a promise of love, red is believed to be true love, and white represents fidelity and the pledge of undying love. Whether a walk in the park, candlelit dinner, or a gift of fine jewelry, thoughtful offerings from the heart are always appreciated on the day devoted to celebrating love.
