Affordable Valentine's Day Gift Ideas for Her and Three Fun facts About Valentine's Day

Hi Guys! Yesterday my friend and I were discussing, and she raised the issue of Valentine's day. I was like "Girl, Valentine's day is a week and one day away." The fact that my mind isn't stuck on it doesn't mean that others aren't thinking about it. A lot of people are in a pit of frustration concerning what to get their loved ones on that day.
In order to ease off stress, I have decided to create a post on affordable gift items to buy for that favourite female in your life. Enjoy.

1. A stuffed, soft, giant Teddy Bear, or, Panda. If she isn't biased about them, they can be great to cuddle.

2. One month worth of Movie Tickets (one for each week).

3. A Nail Kit, complete with a set of nail polishes, in her favourite colours.

4. School/Office Stationery Items. If you choose this option, include a 2TerraByte Hard drive.

5. Complete Set of Lip Kit by Kylie Jenner.

6. If you can, a Signed Item from Her Idol.

7. New Hair Extensions in her Usual Colour.

8. A Pack of Different Books She's been dying to Read.

9. New Pairs of Shoes.

12. 1 Year Subscription to all the Kardashian Applications

13. Craft a DIY Collection of Your Favourite Pictorial Moments Together. Include/Write Sweet Fuzzy Things. Print them out and make it into a Hardcover Book/Journal.  Tip: Be Creative.

14. Flowers, Chocolates, and, a Heartfelt Letter.

15.  Prayer Kit, and, Journal if she's Spiritual(She probably has a serious relationship with God). Notice how I used Spiritual and not religious

16. Book a Spa and Beauty Treatment for Her. If you choose this option, include a gift of Pink Himalayan Salt.

Valentine's Day Fun Facts

1. The most popular history of Valentine's day is that Emperor Claudius II didn't want Roman men to marry during wartime. Bishop Valentine went against his wishes and performed secret weddings. For this, St. Valentine was jailed and executed. From his Prison cell, he wrote a note to the jailer's daughter signing it "from your Valentine". However, it was only in 1537 that King Henry VII officially declared February 14 as the holiday of St. Valentine's Day, it has since remained the same(although, another story alleges that in 496 A.D, Pope Gelasius I named February 14 as St. Valentine’s Day.).
2. By my calculations, A LOT of children will be born in November this year.
3. In 1868, the first “chocolate box” as We know it today, was introduced by Richard Cadbury(the Cadbury), when he decorated a candy box with a painting of his young daughter holding a kitten in her arms. The Cadbury company went on to invent the first Valentine’s Day Candy Box.

Jour Fun Facts Valentine

1. L'histoire la plus populaire de la Saint-Valentin est que l'empereur Claude II ne voulait pas les hommes romains de se marier en temps de guerre. Bishop Valentine allait à l'encontre de ses désirs et de réaliser des mariages secrets. Pour cela, la Saint-Valentin a été emprisonné et exécuté. Depuis sa cellule de prison, il a écrit une note à la fille du geôlier de le signer "de votre Valentin». Cependant, il était seulement en 1537 que le roi Henry VII officiellement déclaré ce 14 Février comme la fête de la Saint-Valentin, il est depuis resté le même (même si, une autre histoire prétend que dans 496 AD, Gélase Ier nommé 14 Février comme St. La Saint Valentin.).

2. D'après mes calculs, beaucoup d'enfants seront nés en Novembre de cette année.

En 1868, la première "boîte de chocolat», comme nous le connaissons aujourd'hui, a été présenté par Richard Cadbury (Cadbury), quand il a décoré une boîte de bonbons avec une peinture de sa jeune fille tenant un chaton dans ses bras. La société Cadbury a inventé la première Journée Bonbonnière Saint-Valentin.
