Happy Valentine’s Day! Want Some Unique Gift Ideas?
Wednesday, February 14th, 2018 by Joy Padgett
Love is in the air! The birds are singing, the flowers are blooming, and love is in the air! Well….in Central Kentucky I don’t think the flowers are blooming just yet.
This is the day for chocolates and roses and champagne and perfume and diamonds! This is the time for hugs and kisses and sweet thoughts and cards. And the only long-lasting gift I mentioned are diamonds! And let’s be honest….most of us aren’t going to give or receive diamonds. Just keepin’ it real!
Valentine’s Day is a pretty big deal in America. Last year we spent over $18 billion on this day! And yes, that is billion with a B. And for what? Chocolates that do nothing more than put inches on our hips and waists (and never where we wish it would go….ladies), roses that fade, dry up and die, champagne that leaves us with a headache, and perfume that eventually gets used up….or worse…perfume we don’t even like and won’t ever wear!
Now, I might be the only woman who isn’t a big fan of Valentine’s Day (except for the conversation heart candies which I thoroughly enjoy) but I’m definitely NOT the only woman who enjoys getting a great gift.
So, what would be a great gift for your special someone this year? Well, let’s talk about a few people in your life who are special to you.
Let’s begin with the very first woman in your life…your mom. You know you have a special place in your heart just for her. She loved you from day 1 and loves you still. She supported you even when she knew you were making a mistake and was there for you when you realized you had indeed made a mistake. She taught you nearly everything you know and gave you wings to fly and, although through tear-filled eyes, watched you soar away into the life you are living now.
You know you haven’t had as much time in recent years to visit with mom, to take her to dinner, or even call her on the phone. Life is like that, right? Mom understands. But this year, why not do something that will let her know just how much you do love her and appreciate all she sacrificed for you, and still sacrifices for you? After all, she still wishes you would spend more time with her.
You know your mom’s house just isn’t keeping her as comfortable as she deserves to be and her utility bills seem to be getting bigger each month. You don’t have the time or the expertise to take on a home improvement project, but we do! We can assess mom’s house and figure out where those drafts are coming from and why her bedroom just isn’t staying warm like the rest of the house. We can send you the proposal and then fix her uncomfortable house!
Let’s move on to the next woman in your life…..your wife. She captured your heart years ago and still makes your heart skip a beat when she walks into the room. Sometimes you catch yourself wondering how in the world you captured her heart….but you’re glad you did. She has loved you, encouraged you, and stood by your side through thick and thin.
She never asks for much of anything and you realize you haven’t really given her much of anything either. But this year, you really want to show her that you’ve been paying attention. She’s hinted that your house just isn’t keeping her warm this winter. She’s never come right out and demanded it be fixed because she knows you’ve been busy and she really appreciates your hard work. But, you’ve heard her request.
Now is the time to act on it! Doesn’t your wife deserve to live in a house that is keeping her warm during these cold snaps? Shouldn’t she have a gift that keeps on giving day after day and year after year? You know you love to see her running around the house in her shorts and tank top during the summer…what if your house were keeping her warm enough for her to dress that way all year long?
We can help you make this Valentine’s Day one that will stay at the forefront of her mind for years to come. Plus, you’ll be more comfortable too! What more could you ask for?
And finally, the newest little lady in your life, the one who brought you more joy than you thought possible, the one who has you wrapped around her little finger….your daughter. You’ll never forget the combination of joy, excitement and nervousness you felt when you held your little girl for the very first time as a proud papa. She calls you “Daddy” and your big heart just melts. Her giggle just makes your day and tucking her in at night is something you know you’ll miss in the next few years when she’s too old for that anymore.
But you know her room has been cold this winter and she can’t run barefoot through the house because the floors are too cold for her little bitty feet. And you know, she hates to wear socks inside the house. What are you thinking? Daddy’s little girl should be footloose and fancy free when she’s at home.
We can fix your uncomfortable home! Your spirited little girl shouldn’t be stifled by a cold, drafty house. We know you don’t have the time or the skill to fix it yourself and we don’t fault you for that. All you have to do is call us!
This Valentine’s Day, why not give the gift of a warm, comfortable home! You can still buy the chocolates for your mom, roses for your wife and that cuddly teddy bear for your little girl. You’ll be everyone’s hero this year!
