Christmas is over; New Year’s is finished, and now it’s time to think Valentine’s Day. I love Valentine’s Day, but it’s also my birthday, so that may not be a fair assessment. My parents have never been huge into grand gestures, but my dad-bless his heart- always found a way to let my mom know he was thinking of her. In our house, that was usually demonstrated by a special date to the Home Depot to pick up some lumber, but hey…
My dad included us girls as we got older; while my mom would get a dozen roses on Valentine’s there were also three single roses waiting on the counter after we got home from school. One year, just after I started driving, I had to stay late at school on Valentine’s and found a rose sitting on the front seat of my car in the parking lot. Good ol’ Dad- setting that bar high for all guys who followed.
It was never about ‘getting presents’; it was always about knowing we were valued, and loved, and thought of often. I am so grateful for my Dad for teaching me by example what it means to be treasured.
Valentine’s may, sometimes, feel like a manufactured holiday…but, if you have the opportunity to tell someone you treasure them, why not take it? Don’t have a significant other this year? Tell your Mom, your Dad, your children, your best friend that you value them, you love them, and you think of them often. All it takes is a card, or a phone call. Go ahead, just tell them.
Valentine’s Day isn’t a major holiday for us, at the store. I do decorate- because I never miss an excuse to browse and implement Pintrest!-, and we do try to offer some specials and make it easy for everyone who just caught their breath from Christmas shopping. But we’re not going to jump up and down and tell you that the only way to demonstrate your undying luuuurve is with a $5,000 ring- not our style and not, we feel, in the spirit of the day. This year, we’ll be gift wrapping any purchases and boxing them up with a small box of chocolates, too. And any purchase over $500 also gets a free ultrasonic jewelry cleaner- also gift wrapped. One stop shopping for all your Valentine’s jewelry needs. Valentine's Day does not need to be another stress filled gift gifting bonanza; make it easy. Or better yet, let US make it easy for YOU. With the addition of The Silver Line, we now have lovely gifts starting at $45- something we’ve never been able to offer before. So click here, if you want all those details, and dates. We’d love to help you pick the perfect thing to aid you in telling someone special that you treasure them.
But even if you don’t come out to see us this year, we’d like to tell you that we love you- our friends, clients, neighbors, and customers. We are so grateful to be a part of your special occasions and we love the joy you bring to us, every time you visit. It seems to me that the world could use a little bit more love, a little bit more friendship, and a little bit more time for each other these days. So let’s celebrate Valentine’s Day this year; let’s spread the love around!
All the Best,
Sterling Silver, 14K Rose Gold Plated Celtic Heart Pendant, $80
