Valentines day in itself comes from a mixture of various convoluted sources. From Christian martyrdom,
to dark Roman rituals to saints and the advent of spring. Thankfully today’s Valentines day celebrations
are a bit less complicated! Today valentines day is used to celebrate love with gift giving and romance.
But what gifts are the most romantic?
With all the consumerist ideals polluting popular holidays, it’s hard to look beyond simple trending gift ideas. Valentines day directly identifies as a time to make lavish and luxurious purchases. Men are practically expected to buy expensive gold and diamond jewellery and make fancy reservations at high end, fine dining restaurants.
The good news is that it’s perfectly acceptable to protest these traditional principles. You don’t have to break the bank to say “I love you!” The latest coffee makers, earbuds and perfumes might be 2020’s most popular gift ideas, but there are many more romantic gift ideas out there!
For those of you looking to take a step away from high end consumerism but still enjoy an excuse to be romantic and share some love and intimacy this Valentines day, there are many fun and interesting gift ideas available! Instead of focusing on how to make the the most loving impression with your purchase, focus on how to make a purchase that encourages and facilitates spending time together.
Not only can you save some money staying in this Valentines day, but it can make for a much more intimate holiday!
Instead of making reservations at a fancy restaurant, spend time cooking your favourite meal together and enjoy a romantic, candle lit meal for 2 at home! Instead of a night out in fancy clothing, stay at home in your pyjamas with a bottle of wine and your favourite snacks and Netflix! Millennials are changing the way we celebrate holidays and high end consumerism is feeling the sting, people are staying in more and spending less.
If you want to join the latest anti-trend and change the language of love for future generations, Alexandria gifts has got you covered!
