It happens to the best of us. "We don't do gifts, we express our love in non-materialistic ways." But then you start hearing what your friends have planned for their significant others and all the totally amazing gifts they're so excited to give. Your pal nonchalantly but with an acute sense of seriousness tells you that all couples say they aren't getting gifts this year but that's just a thing they all say. In reality, a gift is very much expected.
You brush it off and say your relationship is different. As you drive home, your favorite radio station is interrupted by yet another Valentine’s Day ad. Switching the channel leads to more of the same. The thought creeps back in your head and now you're sweating profusely. Have you just put your entire relationship in jeopardy??
How could you possibly find the time to pick up a thoughtful gift that will show your partner you've actually thought about what you've given them? Valentine's Day is just two days away and you're not just empty handed but empty-headed on what to get. What in the world are you going to do??
Relax, that's what. With Amazon's Two Day Shipping, you've got all the time in the world to find that perfect gift for the love of your life. As for what to get, well, we've got a few ideas that might help you out. Now remember, it's not what you give, but how you give it. Presentation is key. These aren't just last minute gifts you got to get out of the dog house. These are deep, meaningful gifts that come straight from the heart.
It doesn't get much easier than this. The King has already laid the groundwork to make this tune one of the most iconic love songs of our time. Wrapped up in a cute little engraved wooden box; it's just the added sprinkles that makes this sundae a special. "Honey, there's nothing much I can say. I just can't help falling in love with you." Of course, if you can sign, we highly recommend you do that in accompaniment to the tune.
This is how you steer into the slide. Odds are, your partner is expecting you to disappoint. Instead of racking your brain trying to avoid your imminent failure, seize the opportunity. Everyone knows love coupons are one of, if not, the most sleazy gifts one could give, especially on a day like Valentine's Day. But wait, these aren't your regular gym-class-hero vouchers. Your partners immediate repulsive reaction will slowly diminish as they read the little cards and come to realize there's more to these than just meets the eye.
What's more romantic than a hiding a hand-written love letter inside a sealed cryptex that can only be opened by a secret password. Mystery breeds romance, my friend. Now all you need to do is create a super sappy password and you are as golden as the gold earrings you should have bought instead.
Also, don't forget to put the note inside before you lock it.
No, they don't need to be a math nerd for this to work. Quite the contrary, actually. All you need is the swagger of a smooth criminal. "I was trying to figure out how much I loved you but there was no number large enough." If that doesn't get you a semi-hidden smile and an adoring eye-roll, we quit.
This one is a little extreme but that might just be what you need to dig yourself out of this hole. The bracelets let you send loving vibrations to one another via Bluetooth and an app. You can leave out all the technical details when you actually give the gift. All you need to say is, "sometimes when we're away from each other, I want nothing more than to feel your touch. This will never be close but it still keeps me closer to you."
I think I just had a baby barf...perfect.
