Valentine's Day is just around the corner! If you haven't figured out what to get for your lady, don't fret. You can never go wrong with a nice dinner, flowers, chocolates, or jewelry. If you want to get a little more creative with how you give your gift of jewelry, we have some recommendations to share that we think you'll like.
Everyone Loves a Surprise, Especially with a Side of Diamonds
Instead of the typical gift hand-off at a fancy dinner, try leaving the jewelry all wrapped up in a beautiful box with a bow somewhere unexpected for her to find (like where she gets ready in the morning). Make sure to add a little love note to make it extra special! This will throw her off and surprise her in the best way. Be a little unpredictable and watch her be delighted.
Scavenger Hunts Aren't Just for Kids
Remember the days when you absolutely loved being sent on scavenger hunts? Your parents would create a little map for you to decipher and you'd go hunt down your treasure. Bring back a taste of childhood by having her go on a scavenger hunt! Create clues that send her around town, maybe seeing friends she loves along the way or sending her to places that hold significance for you as a couple.
Russian Nesting… Boxes?
You know those White Elephant parties you go to where every once in a while someone will have a huge box that is opened and leads to another box to open, and then another, and then another, and so on? This can be so fun! Take it up a notch by having either little notes in each box for them to read or little gifts in each box for them to open. The final box could be a beautiful diamond necklace or a diamond bracelet.
Give the Gift at a Meaningful Event or Activity
If you know you're going to be at an event that day or celebrating a big occasion not related to Valentine's Day, you can still make the day special for her by giving her the gift just before the event. This will be a pleasant surprise, and she might even be able to wear it to the event!
If you're going to be doing some sort of activity like biking, hiking, climbing, etc., you might consider giving it to her then. A meaningful activity accompanied by a meaningful gift is always a good idea.
