Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas For Him and Her

stored in: Buying Guides

Finding lovely gifts for the one’s you love isn’t easy. For Valentine’s Day, we think you’ll find our website a great resource for outstanding gifts, and that we can make finding the right Valentine’s Day present just a little easier than last year.

Gifts for Him; Gifts for Her

For the men in your life, we have several interesting Valentine’s Day gift suggestions; some romantic, some artistic, and some practical. For the woman in your life, well, we have gift suggestions in the same categories. When choosing for him or for her, the trifecta of gift giving is thoughtful, practical, beautiful. It’s probably a little trite to talk about the “wow” factor, but, it’s nice to find something that has it.

Every Man Deserves a Happy Buddha

Happy Buddha StatueFor a guy, a lover or a friend, husband or boyfriend, consider our selection of cast resin Happy Buddha statues. We offer one of the largest collections of cast resin Japanese and Chinese art statues on the web, including mediation Buddha statues, Buddhist monks, Tang horse statues, as well as Foo dog lion book ends, to mention a few. These unique figures can add interest and charm to a man’s bedroom or office.

Some of the designs are rustic and antiqued, some have beautiful silver robes and distinctive jewelry. In ancient times, and to this day, people believe rubbing the belly of the “Laughing Buddha” can bring good luck. In general, Hotei (in Japanese), or Budai (in Chinese), has traditionally been thought to attract prosperity, a good thing for a husband or boyfriend, or whomever you give Valentine’s Day gifts.

Jade Tang Horse is a Masculine Gift

If you are thinking of a luxury gift, something for the man who has everything, consider a fine Jade Tang horse. Jade adds an element of beauty and refinement; the classic Jade horse statue is a masculine, Tang dynasty art motif, thought to attract male “Chi”; health and vitality associated with the fine, powerful stallions of the Tang dynasty.

Practical & Beautiful for the Man with a Mess

Rosewood Jewelry CaseIf the man in your life could use a bit of organization in his, we can suggest beautiful gifts that help with personal storage. We offer an attractive, slightly masculine, excellent quality solid Rosewood jewelry case, great dresser top storage of his watch, rings, pendants, bracelets, money clip, or wallet. Also, a delightful, unique pagoda top DVD/CD media rack, a practical gift for a gamer or music aficionado with opened CD & DVD cases on his desk and sometimes, his floor.

Both of these storage gifts are decorated with the distinctive, auspicious, “Shou”; an ancient, labyrinth like medallion, symbolic of a long, successful life. We also offer an elegant men’s black luxury towel set, with classic Shou symbols embroidered into the plush, luxurious Turkish cotton towels.

For Her: Beautiful Alternatives to Candies, Flowers, or Jewelry

For the lady or ladies in your life, we offer a wonderful selection of interesting and elegant Asian design decorative accents and accessories, providing unique alternatives to candies, flowers, or jewelry, in case you’ve exhausted those gift categories in years past.

Fine Jewelry Boxes & Fine Porcelain for Fine Ladies

Tea TrayBrowse our extraordinary (yet affordable) black, white, or gold leaf lacquered oriental jewelry boxes, and our fine quality oriental flower vases & spice jars. Consider our selection of beautiful cast resin goddess & geisha statues, hand painted sumi-e love birds and plum blossom wall art, as well as pretty and practical tea trays, tea tables, and tea sets.

The Romantic Double Happiness Kanji Symbol

Also, the Japanese or Chinese “double happiness” character, is a simple, subtle way to express your joy at sharing your life with her, and the happiness it has brought to you. We offer a carved double happiness wall plaque, as well as a double happiness lamp, with the double happiness symbol medallion decorating the porcelain jar that’s been converted into an elegant oriental lamp.

Written in Japanese kanji or as a classic Chinese character, the single “happiness” symbol is quite beautiful; but we think if you look closely you’ll agree that the “double happiness” symbol is twice as beautiful. We offer this in a set of 4; Double Happiness, Long Life, Prosperity, and Luck.

    This seems like a very good Buddha statue. As a present it would be ideal. I would place it in the kitchen area. I like the resin and way Buddha is sitting. A very happy piece indeed!
