Great Gifts For Lovers

By / Magazine / February 10th, 2009 / 1

Tired of giving or receiving chocolates and flowers on Valentine’s Day? Those perennial favourites are about to get a makeover. Even though we know it’s coming, most of us still manage to leave planning the big night to the last minute. Dinner date fast approaching, you dash into the nearest grocery store and plunk down a lot of money on whatever is left in stock. This year, show the object of your affection how much you really appreciate him or her by choosing a unique gift.

Try to find gifts that relate to your beloved’s interests. Wine aficionados will never turn away from wine accessories, like the Rabbit corkscrew, a decanter, bottle stopper, or nitrogen wine preserver. Anyone who drinks wine knows how easily wine glasses break. Find out what wine your partner likes best, and buy a set of glasses designed just for that wine. Don’t forget to visit your local liquor purveyor and pick up a bottle that the two of you can enjoy together.

For the food lover, anything from cutting boards to gourmet salt can excite the senses. Sign up for cooking classes that you can enjoy together. Chances are that the two of you have been working hard all year, reward yourself and your partner with a little relaxation. Get away for a day or two. Book a romantic stay at a local bed and breakfast.

Unleash your imagination, and you might find those home fires burning hotter.
