There are several intriguing theories about
the origin of Valentine’s Day.
The name “Valentine” traces back to at least
three saints in Roman Catholic history.
Each year in mid-February, a pagan festival in
ancient Rome celebrated romance and fertility.
In the Middle Ages, so-called wildlife experts
in England declared that birds began mating every year on February 14. We
suspect that the bird-watchers owned stock in a greeting card company.
Nevertheless, February 14 came to be associated with romance.
Make This Year Memorable
Nothing says “last-minute gift” like grocery store
chocolates or wilted roses wrapped in cellophane. Your heartthrob will
appreciate the gesture but probably not remember it a month from now.
We have hundreds of gifts that are as enduring
as your love for that special someone in your life. Here are some suggestions
for making this Valentine’s Day memorable.
There’s nothing like jewelry to make a man or
woman feel appreciated. We’ve curated unique designs from some of the world’s
most respected silversmiths. Just select a category to start browsing.
We also carry dozens of jewelry storage
solutions. Search the site for finely crafted boxes, chests, stackable cases
and handsome valets for men. Be sure to add some Hagerty Jewel Clean to keep
your gift looking its best.
Waterford Crystal traces back to 18th-century
Ireland. Each piece is thoroughly inspected after each of the six stages of
production. If the quality isn’t up to the highest standards at any point in
the process, the crystal is smashed and sent back to the furnace for remelting.
That explains the uncommon, exquisite beauty
of our Waterford gifts. Prepare to be inspired:
Daily Facebook selfies can’t compare to one
nice portrait in an elegant frame. If its been a while since you had a
professional take your picture — or if you have a favorite photo with your
sweetheart — consider framing an image that will be treasured forever. We offer
frames in a variety of shapes, sizes and designs to delight both men and women.
Cunill is an especially fine manufacturer. Its
sterling silver is significantly thicker than the industry standard. Each frame
is crafted from a single piece of silver for durability and seamless aesthetic
flow. The backing and easel are made of bubinga, a rare imported African
hardwood, and the construction hides the hardware.
You may prefer one of Cunill’s 24-karat
gold-plated frames. In either case, you can expect heirloom quality. The
distinctive red gift boxes are perfect for Valentine’s Day.
Especially for Men
The guys are typically harder to shop for on
this holiday. We’ve made it easy for you with a wide selection of gifts that
most men don’t think of buying for themselves:
Take advantage of our convenient engraving services
and assortment of fonts. You can personalize your gift with a name, date or
unique message. Simply add the service to your shopping cart and follow the
prompts. Your message will be sized appropriately on the gift. For items that
can’t be engraved, we offer engravable keepsake gift tags.
Don’t wait until the last minute this year.
Thoughtfully choose a gift that will spark romance every day for years to come.
