Top 5 gifts for Valentine’s Day

Hannah Lundin

     So this Valentine’s Day you’re finally with someone special, your high school sweetheart. Maybe they’re the one or maybe they’re just another one, but it doesn’t matter who it is because if you don’t get them an impressive gift for Valentine’s Day, you won’t be with them after it’s over. You know that you have to get them something but the question is what? There are so many different directions you could go. Whether it’s sweet, sentimental, cheesy, useful, romantic or handmade, the options are endless. Here’s a list of five fantastic and foolproof ideas to get for your mate this Valentine’s Day.

     A giant teddy bear:  I know it’s been done thousands of times before but there is nothing that can make a girl smile more than holding a bear bigger than she is. Plus, this is a get out of jail free gift at the same time because she doesn’t have to like the color or design nor does it have to be a certain size or material. It’s a giant bear; you just simply can’t go wrong.

     Chocolate: this is perfect for boys, girls and everything in between. Some chocolate has nuts, some don’t;  there’s caramel, toffee — all kinds. It’s a timeless gift associated with the holiday itself. The only way you could go wrong is if they happen to not like chocolate; and if they don’t; then any kind of candy will suffice for a replacement.

     A phone case: nowadays most people have a smart phone with a touch screen, and when you drop a touch screen phone, the screen breaks. It’s a thoughtful and useful gift with tons of different colors and designs to choose from- there is something for everyone. This gift ensures that you can talk to each other every day; no broken phone, no broken communication.

     Personalized M&M’s: not only is it thoughtful, original, and adorable, but they’re delicious and defiantly brag worthy. They’re inexpensive and you don’t even have to leave your house to get them. They’re ordered off the M&M’s website and delivered right to your door.

     Jewelry; this is a difficult choice. On one hand you can’t go wrong with the thought, its expensive, sentimental, useful, and it shows that you put a lot of time into picking it out, but that’s the part where so many people go wrong. When choosing jewelry you really have to know who you’re buying for, what they like and what they don’t like, what colors and styles they would or wouldn’t wear. You don’t want to get them something that’s too out there but you also don’t want to get them something they already have. Before you spend a lot of money on something so meaningful, make sure you know they will love it; check with their friends or family, someone who knows their style. If you get this gift right though, you will have one very happy Valentine.

     No matter what you get for your significant other on Valentine’s Day, make sure it’s good and that they will enjoy it. It doesn’t have to be super expensive; it just needs to be beautiful, meaningful and unforgettable. As long as you get them something, you’ll still have someone on February 15.
