What Kind of Gift for Valentine's Day?

Valentine' S Day is approaching and by the way, the time to find some gifts.

Last month was Christmas time and we were brainstorming to know what to offer to our beloved ones.

It is often easy to buy a gift for our children: they have as well desires as we have no problem to choose something to offer to them.

But it is more difficult to choose a gift for an adult.

A man or a woman has all or almost all that he or she wishes.

Which household does not have a blender made by the famous mark "noisy mixer", a dryer "washes, dries and irons at your place", or the drilling machine "drill through your neighbour's wall"?

Will you offer a rose bunch to your wife? Why not? But... perhaps do you already offer one to her each friday...

An original gift would be a bunch of rose Baccarats made up with as many roses as years you cherish your beloved. If you have a large financial budget, you can also offer to her a crystal "Baccarat" vase where Madam will be able to put the flowers.

Does your consort appreciates beer? Do the same with as many different beers - Belgian beers are particularly famous for their diversity and you will only be embarrassed of knowing which to choose.

Note: do not offer her/his age in a number of flowers or bottles; it is Valentine's Day, not his birthday, please, be delicate.

The great classic gifts are French perfumes, such as Cacharel which still has just left a new perfume, Chanel, Rochas... But attention: all the people do not have the same type of skin nor the same pigmentation, with the result that the perfumes do not have the same odor on each one of us.

A council: if you wish to offer a perfume to your wife, choose the one she prefers. As information: I am Belgian but my favorite perfume is not a French perfume ; it is an American perfume called Giorgio (yellow label). The second one I love is Vanderbilt (in case someone decides to offer my preferred perfume to me). As you see, you do not have to come on our old continent to find the perfect perfume.

Another kind of original gift is a gastronomical escapade: two days and a night in "Charm Inn", located on a particular site. Gastronomical Inns generally provide menus with 5 up to 7 dishes, fine food, fine and sought wines and particularly cosy atmosphere. Making your escapade the perfect Valentine's weekend.

For those who want to preserve one's figure, a thermal weekend is the best solution. Thermal centers generally offer 48 hours all-inclusive menus for an affordable price: access to the material, massages, cabins of jets, alga or mud baths... as well as food especially made for losing some pounds while it remains tasty.

For the singles, remember that Valentine's Day is also a family holiday. And do not hesitate to offer to yourself the gift which pleases to you. As we say in French: "On n'est jamais si bien servi que par soi-même" (we never be served so fine than being served by ourself). It is besides what I intend to do this year.

Happy Valentines!
