First, the list contained tangible items, but then, it began to change. Suddenly, I realized there were underlying ideas behind the material gifts – such as: Thoughtfulness. Without a doubt, thoughtfulness is one of the most valuable things when it comes to gift giving. It says that we care enough to think ahead, plan and execute. It requires our attention and our time. And then it hit me: Our time. Today, time has to be one of the most precious offerings a person can give, since time seems to be that thing that's often hardest to find! Now, I had it: A precious offering so valuable that it cannot be found in any store, cannot be quantified in numbers and has no form to which a price tag could be affixed, and yet, it is something that is within our power to give – to others and to ourselves.
Couples' massage or spa treatments are a great way to spend relaxing, romantic time together and they can be followed by a quiet lunch or dinner. This makes for a terrific time to reconnect – since we are more open and renewed after a massage, facial or pedicure. These kinds of gifts are great because they have a lasting effect.
Unique and romantic Valentine's Day gift ideas can be as simple as taking a bath together at home, or by visiting one of the local, mineral baths or spas and taking a few hours in the afternoon or evening to enjoy the peace. Aroma therapeutic bath salts and essential oils make a wonderful addition to any bath and can be a nice add-on as a thoughtful prelude to the shared experience. High quality mineral salts combined with essential oils can be purchased at any number of local gift shops, spas, health food or department stores and are excellent for your skin as well as your psyche.Whether it's trying something that you've never done before, or enjoying something that is a perennial favorite, enjoy the moments you spend on Valentines with your loved ones! Remember that time can be the most precious thing to give! So, when I say, "Time for Valentines," it's truly "Time for Valentines"!
