I have a little bit of a reputation as being a Scrooge with it comes to love. I can often be seen with my face twisted in revulsion, when anything overly soppy or romantic is before me, be it on TV or in person. Where most people think the speech from ‘When Harry Met Sally’ is adorable and sweet, it just makes me cringe.
It isn’t that I’m a total cynic that completely hates love – I am myself in a wonderful relationship – I just have a different perspective on what it means to me. I would rather have an insulting or pun-based novelty card for Valentine’s Day, than a huge bunch of roses. And I would definitely prefer to sit in my ‘fat pants’ and eat loads of snacks, whilst binge watching ‘Band of Brothers’ (we are a little late to the party on that one) with a mountain of snacks, than sit in a crowd restaurant, forcing some romance.
And if I do get a gift, I want something that makes me smile and laugh. Thoughtful and loving gifts for Valentine’s Day, do not have to be in giant bouquet form, or adorned with hearts, or in a heart shape. If the special person in your life loves hearts and flowers, then by all means, gift them hearts and flowers. But, if your other half likes things a little bit different, why dot go for a quirky gift this Valentines Day.
Quirky Gifts For Valentine’s Day
I’ve had a super fun time scouting through the Xwalker catalogue for the cutest and quirkiest gifts I could find. I love them all…I guess I do know how to love after all.
A little bit more original than chocolates and flowers, don’t you think? What would be your ideal quirky gift to receive for Valentine’s Day?
