To many, the month of February is a highlight of the entire year because of only one day that is dedicated for the celebration of love: Valentines day! Now that we are in February, and many of us are planning a very special day on the 14th I decided to put together a Valentines day special containing my thoughts on the celebration and gift ideas that I would personally recommend for your special half. 

Firstly, let me express my own opinion and thoughts on the highly anticipated Valentines day! I personally feel like it is a nice virtue to have one day dedicated for love, however that does not give us an excuse to neglect it in the other 364 days of the year. Valentines day should also not only focus on your husband/wife/boyfriend/girlfriend/crush/etc but it must also include showcasing the love you have for the many people who show support and love to you on your daily life, which includes close friends, siblings and parents for example. To many, valentines day might in fact be a driving force for depression, as it ignites thoughts of solitude and being undesired by the opposite sex: however, I'd like to stress the fact that this is not the purpose of such a celebration.

Anyhow, now that I have expressed my personal thought on Valentines day, I should go ahead and share my personal recommendations for gifts that I find suitable for such event. I will be sharing 2 distinct gift ideas you could give to your significant other in the case of females who are into fashion - since this is a fashion focused blog, and 2 gifts for males:

For a fashion conscious female:

  • Cute, fun and romantic accessory
  • Love Ring in 18K Rose Gold, Solange Azagury-Partridge, $1,300;
    Love Ring in 18K Rose Gold, Solange Azagury-Partridge, $1,300;
  • A good quality leather jacket - You can never go wrong with a good quality leather jacket for your fashion girl! leather jackets are a must have in every fashionista's closet. Surprise her with one, and she will be thankful - even if she already owns one!

For a male:

I find it extremely difficult to shop gifts for the guys - simply because the things that are available for them on the market are quite ... boring.

However, I do think that a good cologne can never go wrong! it will remind him of you, and whats better than having your man smell exactly like you want him to? ;)

I would suggest an electronic oriented gift if your man is not into all the fragrant items. A speaker, head phones or a musical instrument can be a perfect fit for such a day.

As for the greetings, I do think that simple words that come from the heart are very important to be expressed on such an occasion. Although actions do speak louder than words, one may find it difficult to express their thought and opinion towards a specific person with action and thus words come in handy. With the help of words and cute cards and envelopes, one can  give their significant other some fabulous cards with the most heart warming words.

I personally really like the following envelopes specified for valentines  offered by http://www.worldofenvelopes.com/
