How to pick the perfect 2019 Valentine’s day gift in South Africa

The origin of Valentine’s day is debated to this day, some say the history lies in men flirting with women by lining them up and actually knocking them out (brings a whole new meaning to the expression ‘knock ‘em dead!’)

Oh, how times have changed!

And thank goodness for everyone it is no longer socially acceptable to express your feelings on Valentine’s day in this manner.

Valentine’s day is a day of celebration be it new, emerging or old love! However, there is always dread, despair and potential disappointment when it comes to buying a gift? How do you find the perfect gift to express your love, another frightening factor to consider would be the gift vs. the stage of your relationship.

Fortunately for you, Valentine’s day can be about love so listen up to our top picks and leave your nervousness behind.

Something beautiful

Red Roses“ that’s obvious”, It is but it’s an obvious choice for a reason. Red roses display various meanings and are entirely applicable at any stage of a relationship. Interestingly 12 red roses are indicative of “Be mine” and “I love you”. Red roses are symbolic of love, desire, respect, admiration or devotion. No matter the phase of a relationship; a red rose will always remain a great gesture!

The Rose Gerbera is one of the most beautiful daisies in the world? Perhaps we’re biased to our own the rose gerbera interestingly was discovered in South Africa. The Celts believed this flower could lessen the sadness of everyday life so perhaps this is best suited to those in long-term relationships this valentines day (kidding of course). The rose gerbera can be purchased in a variety of colours and thus makes a great gift for any lover who dislikes the colour red.

Something delicious

Champagne is a drink steeped in a history of celebration! With a large variety of champagnes to choose from nowadays, it makes sense that you’ll be able to find something which would tickle the fancy of your partner. What makes champagne an even better choice is its versatility. It is a great gift if you plan to stay in or go out. Here’s why:

If you’re staying in it can enrich the mood and make it seem more festive.

If you’re going out you’ll have a delicious evening drink pre-planned which would bring the costs of the evening down (who doesn’t like saving money?).

Something for the distance

A teddy-bear more often than not reminds most of their childhood. A time of safety and security and before dreaded bills. If you give this as a gift to your partner it can represent the same thing.
