Valentine Gift Trends and Tips

by Mimi & Vera LevinTastemakers in Residence

Valentine Gift Trends and Tips: Valentine’s day is simple, right? Buy some pretty red roses, a big box of chocolate, or a new piece of jewelry for your significant other and you are SET. This is easy enough if you are in a relationship. After all, what better way to demonstrate your love for someone but through sweet words on a sappy card, a beautiful presentation of sugary treats, or a delicate necklace. What if you are single? What if your boyfriend or husband or fiancé doesn’t really want a bouquet of flowers or a shiny bracelet? This year, rather than spend money on yet another Valentine’s Day gift cliché, I encourage you to make the day a bit more memorable. Maybe this year you can celebrate your relationship, a friendship, or yourself, with dinner, snowshoeing, or a fun sporting event.
