5 simple but catchy gift ideas for Valentine's Day

Down with cynicism, long live love!

By Margherita Verdiani

We don't wanna hear the contemptuous comment of those who, while we're choosing our restaurant for Valentine's Day, look suffliciently to us. We're not interested in the misanthropic theories behind every “you've all been cheated” said by this cynical guy who thinks he made a funny joke (dude it's 2020). And it won't certainly be this handwritten love letter to crack the fight against consumerism, a card that many like to play on February 14th, 'cause we know, hypocrites like to win easy

We have the international day of slowness, the emoji one, and also the international day of the left handed people (don't know why these people feel so special – they're not a protected endangered species) and really, REALLY you can't stand a couple of -maybe too sweet- photos posted on Instagram on Valentine's Day? Perhaps you're trying to embody the perfect non-conformist model or perhaps you're just not into cheesy stuff. Anyway: the first eye-roll is allowed, on the second, please, close everything.

Thoughtful presents are always welcome. On Valentine's day they're more than simply welcome, and we don't want to discontinue this beautiful tradition.

We want to give you some ideas for the perfect gift, stuck to the classic but make it cool:

Chocolates by Marchesi'who loves you gives you chocolates', no clichè more true than this. Chocolates box is the quintessence of the Valentine's day gift, and the Marchesi's packaging is a feast for the eyes.

The writing letter set by Il Papiro – a love letter is perhaps the most precious gift you'll evere recive or give (dead heat with jewels) and why do it on rag paper when you can buy it from the Il Papiro ecommerce? The set is composed by sheet and envelope and also you can choose between many handmade decorations (!!!).

Go out for dinner, have a trip and enjoy it if you can, reach your love and celebrate as you want. Take the time for you 'cause Valentine's day is giving you this opportunity.

Don't spare your feelings, it's never enough if it's about love.
