Valentine’s Gifts For An Older Woman
Here is our list of sentimental and sweet gifts for the older woman in your life!
Love Pop Card
LovePop cards are wonderful 3D greeting cards that make lasting keepsakes!
The outside cover of the card displays a laser cut arrangement of colorful flowers. Sweet blue and orange butterflies are nestled among the blooms. When your loved one opens the card, a wicker basket pops up. It’s filled with flowers and sits on a light blue table top.
Gourmet Gift Basket
Gift baskets are wonderful because they feature a variety of fun items. A gourmet gift basket is even better! Their gift items are Kosher OU-D certified, plus many are gluten free.
They also have beautiful flower gifts, wine gifts, and spa gifts to indulge your special lady.
Preserved Real Rose With I Love You Necklace In 100 Languages
I think this meaningful gift is cool on two levels – she gets to see a daily reminder of your love when she looks at the rose, plus she can wear a beautiful necklace that says “I love you” in 100 languages.
The rose is real and will last from 3 to 5 years if kept in a cool place. The 100 love phrases are written microscopically (nano-micro engraving) on the stone in the middle of the heart (a smart phone is required to view the phrases or you can shine a flashlight through it to project on a wall).
You can choose from a variety of different color roses, too.
These beautiful inspirational bracelets are pretty on the outside, but have a lovely sentiment written inside. When she wears it, she will be reminded of your feelings for her every time she looks at it.
These bangle bracelets are 2.5″ in diameter, 0.24″ wide, with a pull/press flexible opening. They are easy to put on and adjust to fit most size wrists. They are made of Surgical Stainless Steel 316L grade, hypoallergenic, and Nickel free. The bracelet is water-resistant, and won’t ever fade, rust, or tarnish.
This saying is “Always and Forever, no matter what,” but there are also many other messages to choose from.
