1. You’re thinking that fixing the snowblower this year will be an adequate gift.
We’re not going to say this is not a significant - and necessary - gesture of love, but it’s hardly making the love of your life feel honored and recognized. If this has been your default pattern of thinking, chances are you have several years of jewelry buying to make up for.
2. You want to spark things up this year.
Maybe it’s been a great year. Maybe it’s been a pretty tough year and you want to acknowledge that. We’ve all got our reasons for knowing when it’s time to ignite a little spark in our relationship, and buying jewelry is a distinct way to do that. More so than flowers or chocolates, a hand-selected piece of jewelry shows that you gave thoughtful consideration to your partner and the specific feeling you wanted to illicit.
3. Your Valentine requested it.
If you’ve found yourself in this lucky position this year, congratulations. You’ve been given the unique opportunity of knowing exactly how to make your loved one happy. Sometimes that road can be hard to navigate, and you spend most of early February with a lingering question mark in the back of your mind. Enjoy the clear direction, and show your Valentine you’ve been listening.
