On the off chance that you’ve managed to miss the build up to February’s biggest holiday (clue: it’s not pancake day) then not only are we here to remind you, but also give you some tips on how to deliver the perfect Valentine’s Day gift without any incidents.
Valentine’s Day has some unusual roots; firstly in pagan pre-Christian Rome as a fertility festival and then, following the death of two Christian martyrs named Valentine, declared a Christian feast day by Pope Gelasius after the pair, possibly because the Church couldn’t beat the fertility festival and decided to embrace it instead. It isn’t until the mid-18th century, however, that Valentine’s Day begins to encompass the more modern view of exchanging love notes and by the end of the 19th century Valentine’s Day cards were being mass produced with the tradition of giving gifts following soon after.
If you’re still looking for the perfect gift to give, you might be surprised to learn that the perfect Valentine’s gift can actually be found anywhere, regardless of what your partner is hinting. The perfect Valentine’s should be unusual, unique, surprising and, most importantly, delivered on time and in one piece.
Most popular gifts for Valentine’s are breakable, so ensuring that they make it to your door without any accidents is a little more important than usual. If you’re buying from an online store then packaging can generally be relied upon, but should you be going the eBay route for that little something a touch more personable, then it’s well worth taking the time to check with the seller that they will add a suitable amount of internal packaging to help guarantee its safe arrival.
The best thing about using eBay to find the perfect gift is the uniqueness you’re almost certainly guaranteed. It’s unlikely that anyone else will be receiving an identical gift, and as it can come from anywhere and anyone you’ve got a far better chance of finding something your partner will love. Look for unusual gifts for that little something extra; don’t rule out a piano if your other half is a music lover with a desire to start lessons. Look for something surprising, yet thoughtful, to really say ‘I love you’ this Valentine’s.
