There are two types of Valentine’s dates in the world: A) The Conventional Gentleman and B) the Renaissance Man. The former would have probably already ordered the most beautifully arranged bouquet of flowers and shipped chocolates straight from Switzerland (or simply grabbed a bar from the grocery); Whereas the latter, being the creative he is, is currently struggling to find the most uniquely possible way to profess his love! He has scavenged through pages and pages of online inspiration websites in pursuit of the perfect gift to swoon his belle this Valentine’s season.
