I know we just left the holiday season behind, but Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite days to give & receive gifts. Of course chocolate and flowers are the most appropriate, and common gifts, but for a special person I also consider perfumes or colognes.
I think flowers are appropriate for any occasion as a gift. It doesn’t matter what age or gender, happy or sad occasion, flowers are neutral, and thoughtful. It is a fact that Scents can have an effect on how we feel and think, and a wonderful familiar scent can bring us joy, help us relax, and helps us with feeling anxious.
A bottle of perfume or eau de toilette carefully researched and purchased for a special person can be a thoughtful gift. A gift that they will always remember you by.
Here is a video on a few of my favorite perfumes 🥰
Not only tart cherries are beautiful, and great in a pie, they are also a great drink to have before a workout. Drinking the juice twice a day for at least seven days before a big race or event can help to ease the pain, and shortens the recovery time.
It also can help with diabetes, high blood pressure, gout, and insomnia. It can also increase urine production, and helps with digestion.
So many ideas for graduates from early learning to college, and to mark this memorable day, offering them a thoughtful gift is a good idea.
A gift giving guide:
1- Many schools have graduation ceremonies for little ones starting first grade or graduating from early learning to middle learning. For this group of young scholars asking their parents for gift ideas is the safest step.
2- For our highly enthusiastic high school graduates, excited for a new life, most often in a new city, away from parents :
Gift cards are the most popular and useful which provide a freedom of choice of its own.
3- For college graduates that come in every size and age:
Gift cards are still a good idea, but we can personalize it by offering help with furnishing a new home, helping with professional attire, or helping with expenses to a rejuvenating vacation getaway, before they step into their professional life.
