Do you celebrate your loved ones on Valentines Day? What traditions are you keeping this year?
It’s more than sending greetings, eating chocolate, or finding flowers. Its about somehow expressing the depth of the commitment made to honor and to delight in someone. One of the ways traditionally used is the presentation of a fine gem from a local jewelry store to show, tangibly, a heart full of appreciation. But, whatever means you use, Valentine's Day is a fabulous opportunity to say "I love you!!!"
To learn more about the history of the special day--going far back to the Roman era, look into our blog archives back to last February and read about the history of Valentine’s Day.
In our American culture, Valentine’s Day is a big event. The holiday brings in $14 billion annually. It is not surprising, as men will often get talked into getting the "finest" and usually most expensive of everything to make it special. We know how difficult it can be for men to find the perfect Valentine flowers or sweep their women off her feet with that box of chocolates. Why not throw in a professional auto detail job? Consider adding a gift certificate for a full or partial detail under that box of chocolates and flowers.
In rising to the occasion, planning something special might include taking that significant other to dinner and possibly a romantic drive during the evening? Where do you like to go? If it involves driving a little distance, it may pay to have the vehicle as fresh as possible for that special someone in your life. If you are in need of another option and plan to get a little gift to best say, “I love you” in a simple way, consider including the gift of a vehicle detail. Bring your vehicle in (and prepare for the Spring) by having an interior detail and washing that paint to make your ride sparkle when you take your sweetheart to dinner. To help you celebrate, we suggest this practical, refreshing gift: keeping your vehicle smelling sweet as a perfect Valentine treat. Make it extra special by including some natural car fresheners, flowers in a sweet smelling bouquet, to help commemorate your love and commitment this Valentines Day. Set them next to a gift card loaded to the amount that you determine, and give the gift that can continue throughout the year. Grab something else to make it even sweeter, maybe a box of special chocolates or some other candy and make it super nice with the unique Valentine surprise that a great auto detail gift package offers. We have waterless car wash to fit in many simple Valentine budget. If you are still on the lookout for ideas, stop by our store in Four Corners for more helpful advice.
