A Very Special Valentine's Day

There is just one more month to Valentine's Day and do you know, it will be a very special Valentine's Day this year because it falls on the first day of Chinese New Year. Of course, it will be more meaningful if it had fallen on the 15th day of Chinese New Year since that day is known as "Chinese Valentine's Day" but still, it is very rare to have these two special days of Valentine's Day and Chinese New Year celebrated on the same day.

My friend, S, asked me if I could suggest some special valentine gifts for him. Having been in a relationship for years, he said that he has run out of gift ideas and it is getting increasingly difficult to buy a meaningful Valentine's Day gift. Well, this will be the last gift he will be buying for his girlfriend this Valentine's Day since he will be getting married in May and next year, he would have to upgrade to a more expensive gift for his wife.

Frankly, I do not have experience buying romantic gifts for ladies but I know that flowers are ever popular for Valentine's Day, especially red roses. The more stalks, the better! I think most ladies equate the size of the rose bouquet to the greatness of the guy's love but sometimes, giving just one stalk of rose could be just as romantic. I guess it is how the gift is given that makes the day most memorable.

A bottle of perfume would also make a great gift, especially if it is the lady's favorite fragrance. It shows her how well the giver knows her and how he pays attention to minor details like this about her and it could be very touching. Of course, a combined gift of flowers and perfume would be even more special.

For guys who are lazy to come up with gifts, they could always fall back on gift vouchers to the ladies’ favorite stores. That works all the time! Who doesn’t love shopping, especially when it’s free?
