Valentine’s Day is about giving gifts that are thoughtful, but not necessarily expensive. These are two of my favorite gifts, for both partners and best friends. LOVE!
Your Love Story
They say they know they have done a job when they their clients cry. When I got mine I laughed, I cried, I got goose bumps. Poetry Salon takes your love story (or whatever story you want to tell their team of professional writers) and turns it into a poem. Once the poem is approved, you choose how you want to present it: on special handmade paper, framed, folded into a matchbox, rolled into a tape dispenser, or in a champagne cork (which is what I did), or any other way that you want. This is about you… and him. It’s probably the best gift I have ever (or rather will ever) give… and this is coming from a writer. Truly, there is a magic to Poetry Salon that most presents simply are unable to possess. The poems are the extraction of the essence, the breath, the life force of your love. All you have to do is have a phone call with one of their team, answer 10 set questions, maybe do a follow-up email to give a few more needed details, then your poem is assigned to the writer who will best express your heart, your energy, your love. Give this gift. You will not regret it.
Sweetie (your best friend with a sweet tooth
I love macarons. I love the taste, look, smell, even the symbol of them (little fancy bites of happiness). They are one of my favorite gifts to give as a thank you, to give to a hostess throwing a party (instead of a candle or bottle of wine), or just to say “I’m thinking about you.” Since, however, I have the inability of not sampling one bite of every one in a box of a dozen (which I also buy for myself when I buy one for someone else), this little macaron necklace is perfect! I bet your BFF will like it too. Not a sweet-addict like me? How about pancakes, waffles, pumpkin pie, or cookies? Whatever your friend’s sweet pleasure may be, it no longer has to be an occasional indulgence. She can now salivate over the scent all day with these most adorable and no-joke amazingly scented Tiny Hands necklaces that look and smell JUST like the real thing.
