Unique Romantic Valentine Gift Ideas

Some Romantic Gifts for Valentine’s Day for You! People in love often want to find a unique romantic Valentine gift for their partner, I know I do! So here I’ve got romantic gifts for him and her and gifts that work for both. Men seem to be confused by what to do for Valentine’s Day, but women even more so!

I get way more letters asking me about romantic gifts for men in general, or gifts for husbands or boyfriends than I do gifts for women. Or maybe it’s that old thing where men don’t ask for directions, I’m not sure.  I just know that romantic gifts for men are the hottest topic around Valentine’s Day, not romantic gifts for her. Go figure.

So here I’ve got gifts for boyfriends, husbands, girlfriends and wives because Valentine’s Day is my favorite holiday. Yes, I’m a hopeless romantic. I know it’s supposedly a commercialized holiday dreamed up by Hallmark to make more money from consumers; and I know all the reasons to lessen its importance as a holiday since it is not in any way related to Christ or any pagan holidays really.

But I don’t care. Any day that celebrates love is a wonderful holiday! Like a
great song says, “What the world needs now, is love, sweet love, it’s the only thing that there’s just too little of…”

So long live love! And long live romance. Celebrate it every day, and on
Valentine’s Day, celebrate it more.

All the merchants would have you thinking that it’s all about candy, flowers,
and jewelry, and while I adore all of those things, it’s also a day to celebrate your love in a way that’s unique to your relationship. So go ahead and explore your creative side when celebrating Valentine’s Day this year…and it’s okay to be mushy too.

On Valentine’s Day you get to be as creative and romantic as you want to be, and it is a day of love, so say it…and don’t stop there; show it.  Love is a rare thing, well worth celebrating!

Here are a few romantic gifts for Valentine’s Day ideas to get you started. Most of these Valentine’s Day gift ideas will work for her or for him, either one. Guys like to be surprised too!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

There is only one cure for love
and that is to love more.

Romantic Gifts: Him
Unique Romantic Gifts for Him

When it comes to romantic gifts for men, they might have a different idea of
what’s romantic than you do. Your boyfriend, or your husband might surprise you if you ask them what a romantic gift for them might be their favorite idea. Of course a Valentine gift for a boyfriend is probably going to be different than a valentine gift for a husband.

Depending on how long you have been involved with your boyfriend, their idea might be a more romantic gift, or it might be more appropriate to give a unique Valentine gift that is not quite so romantic. Take a cue from what they tell you.

Maybe your husband has a high stress job where he has to make all the decisions. A romantic gift for a husband like this might be a trip where he has zero planning to do. Make all the arrangements for him and just give him the tickets.

Maybe your boyfriend travels all the time and just wants to relax on the weekend. A romantic gift for this boyfriend might be a relaxing day with nothing to do but watch his favorite team on TV. Give him the TV, or if you have one already, give him the gift of the time off!

Some other Valentine gift ideas for him might include tickets to a sports event for a team he loves, a tool for the hobby he loves, a dinner at his fave restaurant, or a promise to decorate a man cave for him, or even, a coupon for an afternoon off to just be lazy and read in the hammock.(Give him the hammock!)

Maybe he’s a fashion guy and would love a cool accessory like a trendy watch, or a new shirt. You know your man best, so give a gift that is unique to him. There are many ideas on this page that will work for a husband or boyfriend either one. Enjoy!

Set the Stage for Romance with a Romantic Dinner
Romantic Gifts for Valentine’s Day

Going out to dinner is a treat! But if that won’t work for your budget, you can have it at home. When my children were young and finding a babysitter was a problem, I used to plan Special Dinners. I would cook gourmet food and we would turn the lights off and light candles and play soft music just like they do in fine restaurants.

If you plan this in advance, it can work just fine at home. You can even get a wonderful meal delivered!

What about planning a trip and suprising your partner! If you can’t go right nowfor Valentine’s Day, plan all the details and and place the tickets in an envelope to present at dinner…or in your card, or in the flowers, or you’ll think of someplace!

But if you can, February is a great time to go many places for vacation. It’s after the Winter crowds, and before the Summer ones. A little getaway, or a week long celebration, either way, what a great romantic gift for Valentine’s Day. This is another gift that is unique and a treat for a boyfriend or husband.

Declare Your Love! For a Valentine’s Day Unique Gift
Romantic Gifts for Her

Maybe you are one of those people who has a hard time saying those little words that mean so much to a lover: “I love you”….well this is the day to say it. It’s okay to be unique in the way you say it. So if you can’t say it in your own words, copy a poem and put it in a card, or have the baker write love words on a cake, or hire a skywriter to fly around and say “I Love You” in the sky! But say it! You never know when you might not have the opportunity again.

i carry your heart with me by e.e. cummings
Just Copy it onto a Card and Watch the Swoons

(transcribed exactly the way it was written)
i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear, and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are in my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which
grows higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

Get Married!
Romantic Valentine’s Day

In Las Vegas where I lived at one time, Valentine’s Day is one of the most popular days of the year to get married. Everywhere you go brides are stepping out of limousines and champagne corks are popping and the Wedding March is playing. You won’t have any excuse to forget your anniversary!

And it is easy to arrange to get married there, even at the very last minute. The whole city caters to the bridal industry and you can get a license all day and all night for immediate use.

… Let the world stop turning,
Let the sun stop burning,
Let them tell me love’s
not worth going through.
If it all falls apart,
I will know deep in my heart,
The only dream that mattered
had come true
…In this life I was loved by you.

Last Minute Romantic Gifts for Valentine’s Day
Romantic Valentine’s Day Gifts

What if you forgot? Or you worked all day and you get to the store and all the flowers are gone? Don’t panic…

Before you leave the store, grab a ready made cake from the bakery. Buy some strawberries, fresh is great, but even frozen will do. Of if you can’t find strawberries, bury some cherry pie filling…and buy some vanilla ice cream too. When you get home, offer to make the special romantic dessert. Put equal parts of ice cream, fruit, and cut up cake in a bowl.  Or even easier, buy a bunch of different chocolate bars, and stack them up neatly beside a nice card.

Find a Valentine card if there are any left, or if not, just buy a pretty card with as much red and pink on it as you can find. Some grocery stores even sell helium balloons which is great too… as these will substitute for flowers in a pinch.

If you discover before you leave work that you didn’t get a card and are worried you can’t find one, print one from one of the above sites, and copy one or more of the poems and quotes here to add to the card. Most people love homemade cards.

As the last little “piece de resistance” throw in the promise of a date to the
latest romantic comedy. That way you will look like you had this whole Valentine’s Day planned in advance…and maybe next year you actually will. It will be easier on you!

Yes, You Can Have a Romantic Valentine’s Day on a Budget!

Touched by an Angel, by Maya Angelou

~another Love Poem for you

We, unaccustomed to courage
exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness
until love leaves its high holy temple
and comes into our sight
to liberate us into life.

Love arrives
and in its train come ecstasies
old memories of pleasure
ancient histories of pain.
Yet if we are bold,
love strikes away the chains of fear
from our souls.

We are weaned from our timidity
In the flush of love’s light
we dare be brave
And suddenly we see
that love costs all we are
and will ever be.
Yet it is only love
which sets us free.
