Gift Ideas for Your Valentine

Valentine’s Day is Wednesday, February 14. Need to buy a gift? Here are some ideas:

Candy: This is a popular choice. Give your sweetheart a Hershey’s Kiss or a heart shaped box of chocolates.

Cards: According to Statistic Brain, 180 million Valentine’s Day cards are given each year.

Flowers: If you thought that was a lot, 198,000,000 roses are produced!


Teddy Bears: Give your loved one something to cuddle when you are not around.

Dinner: Going out to dinner is always nice. A romantic dinner on Valentine’s Day is even nicer.

Gift Cards: Give the gift of letting your special someone get whatever they want.

Candles: Turn off all the lights and light a candle.Candles can help set the mood.

Jewelry: This is probably a gift for couples who are already committed. If you’re giving an engagement ring, make sure the other person is ready. A heart shaped pendant might be a good choice too.

Perfume/Cologne: Smell nice for the person you love, but be sure to get a scent the other person likes.

Lingerie: Definitely an adult gift for those in a romantic relationship. Tip: This is probably not a good gift to bring on a first or second date.

Something different? Sometimes it’s nice to move away from the typical Valentine’s Day gifts and give something entirely different. Maybe a gift that compliments a hobby. Something electronic. Maybe music? You know your special someone better than anyone else, so it’s up to you to decide.

From all of us at CashCrate, we wish you and yours a Happy Valentines Day!
