Valentine’s Day Buying Guide

  |  

Possibly the most loving and chocolate-filled holidays, Valentine’s Day is a time for giving gifts and special attention to the people that matter most in your life. You can show someone how much you care, how much they were on your mind, or simply that you know their favorite things just by finding the right unique gift for them.

Reading that and doing that, however, are two very different things. It can seem somewhat daunting, even, when you’re faced with all the gifts available on the market for this holiday, which is exactly why Valentines gift baskets become an excellent solution. Personalized with a special message and hand-delivered straight to their door, it’s easy to give a unique gift to anyone.

We’re going to dive into the 2019 Valentine’s Day buying guide, filled with a comprehensive list of various gift baskets, cakes, bouquets, and much more that can match anyone’s personality. We’ll also cover how to add a personal touch to the gift basket to make it extra special, how to make sure it’s delivered on the day you want it, and the types of gift trays, baskets, and towers on the market to choose from. Broadway Basketeers always aims to provide an unbiased, honest guide that you can use as fuel to find the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for any recipient you’ll be shopping for.

 

Tips for Finding the Best Valentine’s Day Gift

Picking the best Valentine’s Day present isn’t easy, especially for the particularly picky ones in your life that already have just about everything you might buy for them. Someone that has everything they need can enjoy something from Broadway Basketeers all the more, though they can still walk away with evergreen items they can still get utility out of – a win-win situation.

Romantic or Platonic?

The first thing to narrow down is if this is going to be a gift for a family member, friend, or client, or if it’s going to be for a romantic interest instead. There are both options available, it just makes it easier to decide on a present.

Find Out What They Like

If you don’t already know what they like, find out! Are they a fan of sweets, do they prefer chocolates or fruit-flavored candies? Are they more into salty treats and savory goodies that they can’t find anywhere else? Are they more of a wine lover, or maybe they prefer flowers instead of a food item?

Really ponder over what they’ll prefer out of a gift, so you don’t, for example, make the mistake of getting someone who’s not a fan of chocolates a big gift basket full of chocolates. Simple things like this can make the present mean so much more – plus, they’ll be able to get real use out of it instead of just appreciating the gesture.

Types of Valentine’s Gifts

While the main two types of Valentine’s Day presents are between romantic or platonic, there are some broader categories that branch out underneath the two. There are gifts fit for your romantic partner, but gifts also fit for your young child, grandparent, or even a client you’re trying to retain.

We’ll examine all these types of gifts to give, look at examples to give you a better idea of what kind of Valentine’s Day gift options you have available, and list a variety of different choices so you can make your own informed decision on the matter. You don’t want to be limited to one present or one type of present, which is why Broadway Basketeers aims to offer so much variety in their products.

For Her

There’s plenty of romantic gifts for her at Broadway Basketeers that can fit the bill for Valentine’s Day, but we have a few tried and true favorites that, in a way, go above and beyond that of a normal holiday gift.

Corporate Gifts

An excellent way to demonstrate how valued someone in your life is to you is with a gift. This is relevant any time of the year, but Valentine’s Day has always gotten left behind. Instead of being just a romantic holiday, though, more people are becoming accustomed to the idea of platonic relationships, both on a friendship and business basis. These platonic relationships can still include gifts out of thought, which is exactly where a Valentine’s Day gift might be relevant for them.

Whether you have a client you’re trying to impress or retain, a coworker you want to give some extra thought to during this holiday season, or maybe you’re just trying to get some brownie points with the boss, a Valentine’s Day gift will go a lot further than you might think. Let’s look at some appropriate gifts that would be acceptable in a business environment during the holiday.

• Fine-Grain Bath Salts - Moisturize the skin all over without tediously relying on lotion with bath salts that will let you moisturize while you simply lay back and enjoy the bath.

• Aromatherapy Candle - Light up the aromatherapy candle just before you relax into your bath so you can further unwind, refreshing your sense and stimulating the mind with scents that promote deeper relaxation.

• Bath Caviar with Sea Butter - As aromatic as the candle is the caviar that adds an extra level of class to any bath.

• Wooden Massage Stick - Durable and built to last, this massage stick will outlive the bath products that you'll eventually have to use up. Work on sore muscles and get into areas you couldn't reach before with a massage stick that does some of the work for you.
