Be Unique, Be Unusual For Valentine’s Day

Updated on March 17, 2009

Yes, we can! These are the words of the year 2009! Therefore, extend  these words to Valentines Day as well!   Be different , be unusual ,be unique and impress your Valentine! You don’t have to do anything extraordinary! Just the usual stuff but with a wee bit of  imagination and a dash of tang!

Firstly ,do give flowers, but then , instead of the usual red roses how about some red Tulips? After all tulips are joyful flowers and a perfect choice to express perfect love! Complement the tulips in stunning red glass vases. Perhaps a pot of bonsai? Or maybe the Instant Cup of Flowers? These Instant Cup of Flowers comes with ready made soil ,fertilizer and a packet of seeds of Morning Glory, Cosmos, Daisy and Poppy !

Certainly, we all know that gifting hearts are as ancient as love itself. Give hearts by all means! However, why don’t you give a handmade Twig Heart, made of natural twigs or customize it with "I Love You" made of twig alphabets. How about a wall hanging with Twig spelled letters – LOVE . This will indeed become a cherished gift. They are eco-friendly as well! 

Ofcourse, valentines day is not valentines day without chocolates! Be different! Give an Organic Chocolate Decadence in unique sculpted Chinese fir root bowl brimming with edible organic chocolate delights like cocoa nibs, canisters of dark chocolate-covered almonds, espresso beans and other wickedly delicious organic mouth-watering collection of sinful temptations ! These Root bowls make a distinctive gift and then later becomes an exclusive serving piece ,sculpture, or centerpiece.

Why not order some Pizza for the special day? Pizza? On Valentines Day? Yes, you can! I’m suggesting the Chocoholics Pizza! You have wide choices like,Yummy Scrummy Chocolate Pizza , Heavenly Honeycomb ,Jelly Bean Jumble made of Belgian Milk Chocolate, Crispy Rice Puffs, and topped with mini marshmallows or jellybeans and finished with White Chocolate Curls. They are available in 10" and 12”sizes cut into 8 or 16 slices ! Chocoholics Pizza even comes in an authentic Pizza Delivery Box! Did I not tell you that... Yes, you can!

Declare your love by carving on wood. Oh, no I’m not talking about carving on tree barks! Why not carve on your own wooden postcards. You can keep it inside the house to remind you of your loved one at all times ! Want to give wine? Fine! But make sure to accompany it with a pink, crystal decorated personalised Hip Flask and Pourer for her and leather covered stainless steel Hip Flask with a filling funnel either in Black or Tan for him.

Want to open a bottle of champagne? Sure,but then ,carry it along in a graceful metal decanter cradle, burnished with gold tone scrollwork and genuine basket weave base .Set the table for dinner with antiqued sandstone-finish base glass candleholders with golden edging or maybe Morrocan glass candles stand.Dont forget chopsticks if you decide to have Chinese food!There are amazing wooden chopsticks with sterling silver handle which can be engraved with personal messages.

How about a succulent wreath which does not need much watering or perhaps a recycled terranium ? 

Get your man something secretly sexy this Valentine’s Day.  A really cool gift for him will be silver-plated collar stays with intimate messages  tucked under his collar!

Engraved Bracelet for him

Silk slippers for her

Other options will be to track down items such as rare prints, out-of-print books or antiques on Internet auction sites .Give gift certificates to  welcome services like a massage, a day at the spa or a chef's services .

Now that you have certain ideas, stretch your imagination just a teeny weeny bit and come up with more unusual and unique ideas. can!

      HI Laila, I'm all for uniqueness and creativity :-) wonderful hub of ideas. I wonder how chocoholics pizza tastes like. I've never tried that one before.

      Some great ideas in there! I love tulips and hate getting taken for a ride on Valentine's Day when roses soar in price!

      Also, dinner out on Valentines Day is something we just don't do anymore. The restaurants are packed, the service sucks and the kitchen is overwhelmed so the food is not what it is on a more casual day. So, your ideas are much better than eating an over-priced meal with a thousand people breathing down your neck! How romantic is that? NOT!

      Good Hub!

      Excellent ideas! I love flowers....But prefer them on the Plant itself. My favourites are those which are white in color. So i would love some White Orchids.

      You have a good imagination and that touch of elegance; Didn't think of carving our names on wood. I am thinking of writing a poem for my significant other.
