Holiday Greeting - It’s Almost Valentine’s Day

| February 12, 2018

If you’re looking for a gift that will express your love better than chocolates or a bouquet of flowers, don’t fret. has some innovative and unconventional suggestions:

• Literary love tattoos. Perhaps, you’d like Rainer Maria Rilke’s “Love consists of this: two solitudes that meet, protect, and greet each other” scrolling your ribs or Victor Hugo’s “Life is a flower of which love is the honey” tickling your shoulder blades.1

• Temporary tattoo alternatives. If that’s altogether too permanent, you could try temporary tattoos with a favorite quote or his and her t-shirts imprinted with the poetry of Emily Dickinson or Walt Whitman.2

• Personalized treats. Do you think your Valentine would prefer sugar hearts with brief, personalized quips; cupcakes that spell out the right message in the right flavors; or a bust of himself or herself in chocolate?1

• Framed graffiti art. Hearts, ‘I love yous,’ and other messages of adoration have been graffiti-ed around the world countless times. Check the web for an image that may appeal to your Valentine. If another art form is more to his or her taste, then pursue that option.1

No matter how you decide to celebrate the holiday, remember love and sincerity are what’s really important. Happy Valentine’s Day!
