Roses Are Red, Violets Are Blue. Here’s Something Special, Just For You
With Valentine’s Day 2017 almost upon us, the time has come to think carefully about what we can give that special person in our life to show that we care. The following are some awesome hacks that can help make Valentine’s Day easier and more special. It’s a win-win.
In the old days, before the rise of the internet, people used to customize their cards by writing long pieces of prose inside, waxing lyrical about how much they loved their partner. But today, thanks to customizable pre-printed cards from companies like Funky Pigeon and Minted, you get to customize the card itself.
Thanks to this new innovation, even people who don’t have any artistic skill (which, let’s face it, is most of us) can design their own personalized cards for their spouse. They can literally have anything on the front cover, thanks to all the fonts, pictures, and colors on offer. For instance, if your loved one loves ducks, you can send your very own ducky Valentine’s card, complete with cute pictures of Indian Runners.
Make Your Own Name Stamp
Another blast from the past is the name stamp, something that people did to authenticate their letters. Today name stamps are a lot more special, given how rarely they are used. You can get a personalized name stamp that says “Charlotte” or “Daniel” from Etsy, as well as many other common names.
The other benefit of having your own name stamp is that you don’t have to write out your name loads of times if you’re the sort of person who likes to send everybody they know Valentine’s Day cards. No more hand cramp for you.
Send Gifts To Estranged Loved Ones
If you’re separated from your loved one thanks to international boundaries, no worries. There are now plenty of ways of sending flowers overseas. All you have to do is pick the flowers that you want, place an order and get somebody in the country where your loved one is staying to deliver them on your behalf.
Make Some Heart Balloons
If you want to give your loved one the impression that love is in the air, then why not do it literally? Blow up a bunch of red heart balloons and have them placed all over your house. Turn your Valentine’s Day into a real party. You could write on each balloon a little message of love, letting your partner know just how much you care. Try not to make it too vomit-inducing though.
Bake Up A Sweet Treat
They say that the root to a man’s heart is through his stomach. So with that in mind, it’s probably a good idea to whip up a treat on the big day to show some love. There are all sorts of Valentine’s related foods you could try, including things like heart-shaped raspberry sweetheart cookies. The cool thing about these cookies is that they only have three ingredients and are usually ready to eat within an hour. Berries dipped in chocolate are another great Valentine’s day idea.
