Valentines gift Jan 30 (THAINDIAN NEWS) As you may know by now, I am writing an article a day on the subject of Valentine’s Day, and will be until February 14th. In case you missed my last two articles, the first one, which is the History of Valentine’s Day and the second article, on Valentine’s Deals and Gifts. If you are looking for a present for your Valentine, but are on a budget, the second article may be a good read for you.

I thought for today’s article, I would focus on unique or different gifts for Valentine’s Day. Candy, roses, teddy bears and flowers are all lovely, and romantic, but maybe you are looking for something new to surprise your true love. Some of these are great ideas for guys, since teddy bears and flowers really may not be their thing.

The first fun present that I found in my research was a type of Valentine’s Getaway. Now you may be thinking to yourself, “Well that isn’t different or unique,” but just read on. This one looked like a lot of fun to me, and a terrific idea “for him.”

I will give a direct quote from the website that tells exactly what this “Getaway” is all about.

Third Annual Murder Mystery Weekend
“A Crime of Passion by the Seaside”

Looking for a different way to spend Valentine’s Day? Try our Murder Mystery Weekend. It’s full of suspense and laughter. Together you and your significant other can compete with other couples to find out who murdered who!

Sounds like fun, yes? The activity takes place at Kiawah Island Golf Resort, and also has some meals included, a spa, nature tour, or other recreational activities. For more information look on their website here.

There were also many unique Valentine’s Day Gifts found at “findgift.com” for pretty reasonable prices. For under $20 you can buy the “Lovopoly Game” found here. As their site says ”

They also carry a “Homerun Baseball” that would be great for baseball fans. It is also under $20.

and, while on the subject of cooking, for under $25 you can buy your sweety the

There are many different Tshirt sets, Romantic games, and Customized gifts available at findgift.com, and other unique items. I really suggest you check this site out!

I am going to try to find a Valentine Freebie for every day that I write a Valentine’s Article. Today’s Valentine Freebie is TWO FREE ROMANCE NOVELS. If you go to the Harlequin Romance Website, and take advantage of their deal, you can order two free Romance Novels. “Accepting your two free Intrigue books and mystery gifts places you under no obligation to buy anything. You may keep the books and gifts and return the shipping statement marked cancel.” So basically, you order the books, and check “cancel” on the card that comes with them, stick the card back in the mil, and there you have two FREE books! However, if your Valentine loves to read, this is actually a good deal, and you may consider just buying her the subscription.

So that is today’s Unique Valentine’s Gifts. I hope you found this article useful, and maybe I have helped you with an idea for a special gift. As I already said, remember, it is about love, and love doesn’t cost a thing. No matter what the cost of the gift, or how pretty it is, or how sweet the words are when you give it, if you don’t give in love, it has no meaning. (1Corinthians 13:1If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails.

Thanks again for reading, and I hope you have enjoyed this article. I know you will remember to Buzz up, and Tweet this link, and leave me a comment, won’t you? Thanks!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
