Xstrology Valentineâ€™s Day Gifts
Itâ€™s that time of the year. Valentineâ€™s Day either makes you excited and romantic or it burns you with loathing and disdain. If it burns you, take this time as an opportunity to do something nice for yourself. No itâ€™s not pathetic; it is actually a good idea. Who better to gift you with what you really want or show you a good time than yourself? Make this â€śHallmark holidayâ€ť better than itâ€™s ever been by being good to yourself.
For those that look forward to all the love in the air and blooming romance, you know that carefully laid out plans are in order. There are flowers and dinner or gifts to decide upon. You may be thinking about bringing your relationship up a notch or even proposing. What do you want to do? What impression do you want to make? Well, I will not let you do this alone. We will go sign by sign and discuss gifts, flowers and date ideas. If you already have ideas in mind, get your ass in gear and make it happen. It is super busy that night and even though this year it is on a Monday remember that Sunday will probably be just as busy.
Before we start breaking down the signs, let us go over a few general tips. Valentineâ€™s Day is honestly just a day but it is an opportunity to show just how much you care. Real life steps in and the two of you find yourselves so busy that time easily slips away. But this night is the perfect night to just recharge and regroup. Relax and enjoy each other. Talk and catch up, take a genuine interest in what has been going on. Try to make the night special for the two of you.
For the leader of the zodiac it is rather simpleâ€¦ only the best will do. While you may not be able to spurge on a diamond, their birthstone, you should do the best you can within your means. Pick one thing and make it big. Choose either dinner at their favorite yet expensive restaurant or that gift slightly out of their reach that they are working towards. If your Aries beats you to your idea, which with them always happens, be creative. Your Aries is a talker so surely he or she may have said something about wanting or looking for or even trying something new. Just take the time and think about it. Not only will they be impressed you listened but that you wanted to give it to them. As for flowers, Aries are very passionate and red flowers are a good place to start. You could go with the standard red roses but do not forget that red tulips get the same message across. Just remember that quality is crucial with an Aries so focus on one aspect of the evening and make it shine.
It is easy to forget that your headstrong Taurus has a romantic side. While he or she is very grounded, they are also fans of indulging. Your night with your Taurus should be one of doing something you may not often have time to do. Are you theatre lovers or is there a favorite restaurant that you two havenâ€™t been to in a while? Think of things that you two love but just canâ€™t do as often as you would like. If you are handy or crafty then gift your Taurus with something you made. It would mean more to them than something store bought. If you are not then a day at the local spa might just be what your Taurus needs. You know they often forget to take time for themselves. If you would like to give your Taurus flowers then you need one that is rich in color and very fragrant. Lillies would be an excellent choice. Some come in orange and even white so you can create a great arrangement. Remember, make this night about indulging and your Taurus will surely â€śindulgeâ€ť you.
Gemini love to work on many things and thrive on variety. They are impressed by anything that has a bit of a novelty or that is a gadget of some kind. This might be something you want to have to give as you plan a getaway. Take advantage of this Valentineâ€™s being on a Monday and enjoy a weekend getaway. It doesnâ€™t have to be far but at least some distance where you two can enjoy an adventure together. If you cannot get away then try a rooftop restaurant or a restaurant with an amazing or unique view. Even that little bit of adventure could go a long way. If you want to give your Gemini flowers, only roses will do. Mix pink in with white and red to show your feelings and get your message across.
Cancers thrive on love and affection and have a sentimental streak. Gift them with something personal to them. Maybe put a favorite old picture in a beautiful new frame or find something that reminds them of their childhood. Take advantage of their love for comfort and make dinner at homeâ€¦ or fake it (take out from a favorite restaurant or bribe a friend to cook) but set the table especially for the night. Candles and maybe wine but go all out and make it an evening in. If you choose to give your Cancer flowers then look towards the delphinium. It is a flower of open hearts and heavenly essence. Couple bunches of delphinium with a white rose and show you are open and loyal to them.
Your Leo loves luxury and opulence but has a heart just as grandiose. They are spontaneous, warm hearted and apply the â€śthink big, do bigâ€ť mantra to all aspects of their life. So for Valentineâ€™s Day, â€śthink big, do bigâ€ť and show your Leo a lot of love. If you were thinking about engagement, today is the perfect day. Get down on one knee in the middle of the restaurant and propose then loud and proud declare the positive response. If you are not that far along in your relationship donâ€™t worry, buy a gift that bold yet classy. The new Burberry handbag for her or a Zegna dress shirt for him would be great places to start. Whatever you choose remember bold and classy. You would think that for flowers I would recommend a huge bouquet of roses but for a Leo sunflowers are the way to go. I know you are surprised but sunflowers represent warmth and happiness in a big way with wide open faces and a sunny yellow color. It represents their spontaneity and their â€śthink big, do bigâ€ť attitude.
While your Virgo is rather shy at times there is a witty streak underneath. They are creative and sensitive so a gift reflecting these attributes would be best. New paints maybe or a book of poetry would be a great start. If there is a piece of art they have had their eye on that would be better. Sometimes galleries have events for Valentineâ€™s Day, find out if any near you are and start your date there. If there isnâ€™t then maybe find a creative class and take one. I understand it is unconventional but it would surely stand out in their mind and earn you points for ingenuity. Any flower within the daisy family (including asters or sunflowers) is very fitting for a Virgo. They mean loyal love, beauty and patience. Place a single red rose in the middle of a large bunch of daisies and you have the perfect expression for your Virgo.
Your social butterfly would probably appreciate a spectacular home cooked meal and a quiet evening in. Make a favorite meal and splurge and on an excellent bottle of wine. If you cannot cook, do not try and fake it. Take your Libra out to dinner at a restaurant that has an intimate but comfortable setting. Take advantage of your Libras good humor, if you have a good comedy club in your city then try that for the evening as well. Gifts for a Libra need to be tasteful and elegant. Jewelry and clothing are not out of the question nor is the newest book written by a favorite author. For a unique statement, give your Libra hydrangeas with a single white rose. Hydrangeas represent balance and heartfelt sincerity along with the rose meaning of devotion and happy love.
Scorpios are erotic and sensuous with a side of mystery. Do not tell them where you are going, maybe blindfold them and go into the city for some one on one time. Get a hotel for the evening/weekend, one that has a good restaurant to order room service from. Spend the night making love to your Scorpio and donâ€™t let them come up until morning. Think ahead; pack a bag with maybe something new and satiny for them to wear while you spend your time reconnecting to each other. Spending some time with you and have that time filled with passionate sex will be perfect for your Scorpio. Like the Aries, the flower for a Scorpio should be red like their passions. Roses of course are always standard but for an interesting approach try peonies. Peonies represent romance and power, a true mirror of your Scorpio mate.
Your strong willed and intellectual Sagittarius would love a night of stimulation *wink*. I suggest a game of strip chess. IF you both know how to play then take advantage of their intellectual side and make it fun. Cook a meal together and enjoy each other. Then over dessert, let the games begin. You may not know how to play chess but a game of strategy would work in its place. If not, travel somewhere, a day trip. Leave in the morning, find a great place for lunch and head back in the evening after you explore some of the surroundings. Gift your Archer with a book of a subject related to a favorite of theirs or of something new they are interested in. You canâ€™t go wrong with first stimulating their mind. For a multi-dimensional sign you need a flower just as diverse, carnations. They symbolize love and fascination as well as luck and longevity.
Capricorns like to keep it simple but hate bad taste and wasteful spending. What you gift a Capricorn must be simple yet meaningful and not extravagant. An antique watch would be a great start or something you personalized. Take pictures and make a book or create something just for your Capricorn. They appreciate something that is one of a kind and especially for them. Capricorns thrive on a day like today because it gives them quality one on one time with their mate. Take your Capricorn for a meal in a rustic locale. Sit close and create and atmosphere like you two are the only in the world and only your Capricorn matters. Capricorns are represented by Violets. It is a long lasting flower symbolic of faithfulness and royalty and sensuality.
Underneath the independence of your Aquarius is a romantic that loves to love. They are creative and eccentric so great date ideas would be a museum or art show. You canâ€™t go wrong with unusual ideas or brand new experiences so if either the above is out then find a venue you two have never been. If you can travel, find a place and spend the weekend. Take in all their sights and asks locals for restaurant suggestions. You will amaze them with your spontaneity and satisfy their curious nature. Just like a Capricorn, Aquarians are economical so put thought into any gifts you want to give your mate. Quirky and personal gifts are the best way to win their hearts this Valentineâ€™s Day. Aquarians would appreciate orchid flowers. There is a quiet and exotic beauty that surrounds them and they represent beauty, strength, loyalty and love.
Your Pisces is a gentle spirit with compassion and an open heart. Remember they want to find their soul mates and love a slow courting. They love water and seafood so if weather permits head to a restaurant on the beach if not then the best seafood restaurant in town will do. A restaurant with an intimate and romantic setting is ideal. Maybe there is a concert by your local orchestra or an art exhibit to attend that evening. Take a look and see what your city is offering that night then go accordingly. Jewelry is always an appreciated gift. Pisces love to have one stunning yet meaningful piece. Try a bracelet or a ring, something reflective and special for them. For your Pisces there is a lily like flower called the alstroemeria, also known as the Peruvian lily. It is quite beautiful and somewhat unknown but they are smaller, more delicate lilies that represent splendor and adoration. Mix in some white roses and you have a meaningful bouquet for your mate.
So there we are. All twelve signs of the zodiac and ideas to get you started. Just remember make it meaningful and sincere. This is a day, not just a â€śHallmark holidayâ€ť but a day to remember love and to be in love. Love really does make the world go round so be love and share love.
