Valentine’s Day is a great time for you to rekindle that feeling from when you first met your wife – those heady days of nothing but romance and togetherness … massages and walks on the beach, untainted by thoughts of kids to get back to or sinks full of dirty dishes! If you are lost for gift ideas for your wife this Valentine’s Day, we have some great thematic ones, as well as some old favorites, for the traditionalists. Read on for some glowing inspiration!
This is the International Year of Astronomy, so we have chosen a few gifts to represent the vastness and mystery of space, the way it always pops up with a sparkling gem of wonder out of a wide expanse of blackness … like marriage, in a way! The ‘Moonlit’ earrings pictured at the beginning of the article are a wonderful way to celebrate the fact that she exhibitis the same pull over you that the moon does on the ocean (aww!). They belong ot the Hot Diamonds range of jewelry, and are made of the sterling silver that is the range’s signature metal, along with the tiny brilliant cut genuine white diamonds that go so well with it. The love hearts dance against a full-moon background of sterling silver, which is rhodium plated to both prevent tarnishing and enhance shine. They are made for pierced ears, with nice free-feeling hook style fittings.
The titanium rings section has heaps of awesome space-age inspired gifts for men … however you’ll have to sift a little longer to find the stunning ladies gifts that are in there also! The ‘Alpha’ titanoium ring pictured at right is one of these. Made in a ladies’ size width, at 3mm, the name of the ring represents the brightest star in a constellation … or the brightest star in your life, of course . The titanium base is accented with 14ct yellow gold, which is beautiful quality and almost as wear-resistant as the titanium itself (which is used to build spaceships!). Unlike many titanium rings, there are few personalization options with this piece – but that will pale into insignificance once she sees the heartfelt message you can engrave for free inside the band! Make sure you measure her finger size accurately though – perhaps ask if another ring still fits her well, and take that to your local jeweller’s to be sized, if you’d like to keep the gift a surprise. Some finger sizes need to be manufactured, and titanium is tough and doesn’t give in to resizing easily. Perhaps like somebody you know … ?!
If you are looking for something a little more budget friendly, but just as sweet for Valentine’s Day, the Tatty Teddy range has some beautifully feminine choices. If you want to run with the bright, shining star theme (it is very sweet, after all!), choose the double star bracelet. It is made of sterling silver, with one open style star and one with an engraved Tatty Teddy, with his sweetly shy features and a blue cubic zirconia for a bit of sparkle. The length is 17cm, and even if your lady has very daintily sized wrists, the length will be suitable.
The Tatty Teddy range also includes some more traditional style Valentine’s gifts, like the red heart bracelet pictured at right. You can get these very sweet bracelets in either the synthetic-ruby encrusted style pictured, or with single rubies, or with several hearts with blue cubic zirconias. All are feminine and gorgeous, as well as very budget friendly. They are made of sterling silver, and Tatty Teddy makes his mandatory appearance on each of them, snuggling his own shoulder with a sweet smile … chicks love that stuff . They range in size from 17cm to 19cm, so you can match your wife’s wrist size well. If she has smaller than average wrists, many of the designs can be wrapped before the attachment is put in, to shorten them slightly.
Valentine’s Day is a holiday of the heart … not of a dead President, or something as abstract as a country … why not celebrate that fact?! The heart cut amethyst huggie earrings at right have a beautiful Valentine’s flavor, and add color and sparkle to most outfits, while still being easily matched. They are especially good if your wife’s birthday is in February also – the amethyst is the birthstone for February. The white gold is budget friendly 9ct, and because amethysts are a fairly inexpensive stone, you can indulge with larger 5mm gems. This style of earring hugs her ears … let them stand in when you can’t be hugging her yourself!
But Valentine’s gifts don’t have to be overly soppy – the Michael Kors Rose Tone watch pictured is warm and lovable, yet a practical gift. The metal intertwined link design is reminiscent of a couple snuggled up on the couch … probably where she would much rather be for most of the day! The rose band is warm and easily coordinated, but is actually made of stainless steel for durability. The watch comes with a 2 year manufacturer’s warranty also.
And for a gorgeous modern Valentine’s gift, the heart diamond earrings at right are a great choice. They are made of sterling silver, with a half-polished, half satin finish for a textured and contemporary look. They each have a brilliant cut white diamond set in the centre, and the metal has been rhodium plated, to help enhance the shine of the sterling silver. They are sweetly petite, and will not extend past the edge of her neat little earlobes in most cases! Perfect for everyday wear.
