If you’re still recovering from the stress and pressure from the recent holidays, it’s time to rest up and reset for the next wave of “shopportunities”. There are two primary holidays coming up that warrant your attention – and affection!
Love is in the air
Valentine’s Day – February 14, 2017
Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day, is recognized as a significant cultural as well as commercial holiday in many regions around the world, and is a day of love as well as gift giving to your beloved. Some of the most popular gifts given are jewelry, chocolates and flowers.
Nordstrom posted their Top Ten Gifts for Valentine’s Day, and Amazon has a Valentine’s Day gift idea for everyone you love, including tech treats and ideas for kids and pets!
White Day – March 14, 2017
According to Wikipedia, In Japan, White Day is the counterpart to Valentine’s Day and is typically observed by girls and women presenting chocolate to their sweetheart, usually to boys or men, as an expression of love, courtesy, as well as social obligation. The reverse happens on White Day, when the boys and men who received what is called the ‘chocolate of love’ on Valentine’s Day are expected to return the favor by giving gifts in return. The most popular gifts are luxury white chocolates, jewelry, lingerie, and marshmallow. Another aspect of the tradition is the value of the gifts given on White Day. The men and boys are expected to spend two to three times more on the girls and women than they did for them!
Ebay has a His & Her gift giving guide to help you decide what to get your sweetheart.
