Valentine's gift ideas

I guess, chocolates, some overpriced roses? I’m kind of gifted out post Christmas, no good ideas left in the tank, what’ve you got?

This thread is of interest to me, as well.

I’m between covering husband’s office wall with Mixtiles of kids and us (took a few years to collect enough pictures of us together to pull something like that off) and the lazier option of one of those cute Lovepop cards.

How often does everyone buy jewelry as a gift? And when you do buy jewelry is there a better method than walking in, telling the person behind the counter how much money you’d like to give them and them deciding what they feel like giving in return?

I do jewelry like every other year. I rotate between earrings, rings and necklaces.

Last October, I did earrings. Citrine, which is the 13th anniversary stone. Actually found some at Macy’s at a reasonable price.

Otherwise, I scour the antique shops for something she may like.

So do you just have a decent sense of what the price should be so when they do the whole price reveal you already have a decent sense of what it should cost? And if so any tips on gaining that insight?

This is a clever idea…

I meant a reasonable price that fit my budget. And I looked online first and wen to the store. The saleslady was quite helpful.

Makes sense. I feel like I always walk in just begging to be taken for a ride. They show me something that costs 2k and I respond looking to spend a fair bit less than that. What stops them from showing me something that really is worth $100 and taking my $500, or any other numbers? Tricky when they all hide the prices.

Side note: is it odd that the spell check dictionary in Firefox does not recognize “citrine,” capitalized or not, as a valid word? Vitrine and citric are the suggested replacements. it’s not that obscure of a stone.

I go in there and say, listen, I need something that’s around $x. Whatta ya got for me?

For “new” jewelry, I usually go to Macy’s. They’ve been my go to department store for many things over the years since I was a kid.

Lately, I look online to get a sense of the selection in my price range. Then I go to the store to see what they may have. I’ll save a webpage of something I like and show it to the clerk: “This is what I’m looking for…”

Nothing says “I love you” more than heart-shaped meat. Eat your heart out, Romeo!
