Wishes and Messages: Romantic ways to greet your valentine
Valentine’s day is all about showing your love for someone special in your life, whether it be a significant other, your mom, best friend and others. One of the best ways to do this is by giving gifts and writing personal messages or both! If you’re running out of ideas with regards to these things, don’t worry! We got your back.
Here at Wishes and Messages, we want you to capture the hearts of whoever you’re planning to send your love this Valentine’s day. If you’re planning to make heart’s day extra romantic, here are some different ideas that can help you achieve that!
Custom couple portrait
If you’ve recently grown tired of sending flowers and chocolates to your significant other, a great and fresh gift idea that you can try is a custom couple portrait. With this gift, they’ll always be reminded of your love every time they look at it which is great because they can place it anywhere they want inside their home.
It also doesn’t expire which means that it will forever be a part of their lives. If everything goes well and you two end up being together, you can look at this picture when you’re older and reminisce about the good old days.
With the continuing evolution of digital technology, it’s easy to profess your love to someone through the power of the internet. Although it’s extremely convenient because the recipient will get to read it in real-time, it loses its authenticity and personality. That’s why we always recommend our readers to try and go back to the old ways and write handwritten letters for their loved ones.
Through these letters, you can put all your love on a piece of paper which they can physically touch and keep forever. This beats chats or texts in every way because it comes off as more personal. Also, knowing that you took the time and effort to get all the materials you need and gather your thoughts to write this heartfelt message is more special than just pressing a bunch of buttons on your mobile phones.
As with the custom couple portrait, you can also keep this forever as memorabilia in which you can look back on when you grow old together.
Their favourite food
Sure, eating at their favourite restaurant is a great way to celebrate but you know what’s even better? Cooking your version of it! This way you can make it more personal because you’ll be making it using your time, money and effort.
The saying ‘the way through a man’s heart is through their stomach’ couldn’t be more true in this situation but it can also go the other way! It’s time to break the stereotype that women are the only ones who should cook for their significant other. Men can cook for their ladies too.
The great thing about this is that you can serve the food in a variety of ways. You can try this at your house and create a homemade romantic candlelight dinner or you can surprise your partner and send their favourite cook during their lunch break at work, the possibilities are endless. The second option allows you to have another date in the evening which is a win-win situation.
To put a cherry on top, you can attach a short heartfelt message or a greeting from us here at Wishes and messages.
If you want to give your loved ones something that they’ll cherish forever, getting them a piece of jewellery for Valentine’s day is a great option. This is also a great choice if you want your gift to be worn by the recipient at all times.
Also, you’ll get different choices under this category so you won’t have to worry about running out of options. Some of the best types of jewellery/accessories to gift your loved ones include:
Another benefit that these types of gifts will give you is that you can personalize them to your liking. Some pieces of jewellery will allow you to etch your initials on them while others will allow you to put your pictures like in lockets and pendants.
This type of gift will also let the recipient be reminded of your love every time he/she gets a glimpse of it which is a bonus!
You can’t spend Valentine’s day without chocolates. These tasty sweets have become synonymous with the occasion itself and it’s impossible not to see them everywhere you look during this day.
Chocolates are foolproof when it comes to Valentine’s day, almost everyone will love them and they’re simple enough to make anyone’s day. However, the great thing about this gift is that you can either let it be the main attraction of your offering or you can complement them with other items such as handwritten letters and our next item, flowers.
Similar to chocolates, flowers are also synonymous with Valentine’s day and it’s one of the most common gifts during the day. This is because it’s one of the most romantic things that you can offer to your loved ones and it’s not limited to your partner as you can gift this to almost anyone.
It also helps that you know their favourite flowers so that you won’t have to pick a random one at the store and end up choosing the wrong ones. If you know the person you’re gifting this to, you should know what they would want so that the gift would be more personal and special.
There are also a variety of flowers that you can choose from. If you don’t know which to choose for your loved ones, here are some of the choices that you can never go wrong with and what they signify:
Peonies aren’t only pretty to look at but they also represent romance which is perfect for Valentine’s day! Some people also believe this flower brings luck to its owner. If that’s something that you believe in then you should gift this to your loved ones to protect them with an extra layer of luck.
Roses are the most common type of flowers to gift on Valentine’s day. This is because it’s the perfect representation of love but aside from that, it’s also believed that they symbolize beauty and perfection.
Its popularity during Valentine’s day is the reason why most farmers and florists specifically plant roses in time so that they can grow exactly in February. There are also different types of roses that you can choose from such as:
- Damask Rose
- Mr Lincoln
- Beach rose
- White Rose of York.
During Valentine’s day, you can rarely see Daffodils being given out because not that many people know about them but they are known to provide luck to their recipient for up to 12 months!
Tulips are another classic choice for Valentine’s day because they stand for perfect love. They’re also one of the most identifiable types of flowers thanks to their vibrant colours and distinct shape. Lastly, their appearance also gives a sense of warmth, cosiness and comfort which are things that you would want your loved ones to feel.
There’s no better way to tell someone that they’re your source of sunshine than giving them a bouquet of sunflowers. These beautiful flowers are instantly recognizable because of their bright yellow colour which exudes joy and warmth. Aside from Valentine’s day, these are also perfect gifts during summer.

Similar to their favourite foods, gifting your loved ones with baked goods during Valentine’s day will make them feel special because of the effort that you put into them. Making these on your own will also allow you to personalize them. For example, if you’re baking cookies, cakes, cupcakes, etc., you can design them by using icing and piping bags.
If you can’t decide on one gift to give your loved ones, you can choose to make a gift box instead! This way, you can fill it up with things that you know your recipient would love such as chocolates, candies, handwritten letters and many more.
You can also decorate the box itself! This makes it more personal and it lets you bring out your creative side. The possibilities are endless! All you have to do is remember what you both love and incorporate them into your box.
