Valentine’s Day is just around the bend and you’re starting to look for a gift for the special someone in your life. You don’t want to be caught flat-footed like last year and end up with lame chocolates or stuffed animals. So what is a romantic person to do? It doesn’t matter if it’s your first Valentine’s Day or your 50th; silk pillow cases can make a great Valentine’s Day present for that special someone in your life.
Let’s be clear here about two points – silk pillow cases aren’t by definition, a romantic gift. It all depends on how you frame it and play it up. The second point is that silk pillow cases are generally purchased for women. That doesn’t mean that a man can’t sleep on them. Silk pillow case sets come with two pillow cases so any man who is buying for someone they spend the night with should expect to sleep on them. It’s just that they are typically purchased for women. If buying for a man it might be a good idea to think again. Not to say you can’t, but you might want to take a step back and make sure it’s a gift they will appreciate and not be forced to pretend they appreciate.
So why do silk pillow cases make a great romantic gift for that special someone in your life? Because it’s silk, and as everyone knows, silk has a very sensual and sexy connection to it in our culture. The touch of silk, the feel of silk, it just brings to mind all sorts of romantic and possibly naughty ideas. Silk sheets of course will bring these thoughts to the forefront of one’s mind without fail while silk pillow cases not as much. This makes silk pillow cases a good gift for the couple that is beginning to be romantic. They are also a great way to test the waters and see if someone is interested in larger things, like silk sheets.
Silk pillow cases also show you care. How? Because they are naturally more hypo-allergenic than cotton pillow cases and they absorb less moisture than comparable pillow case materials leaving the sleeper’s face more hydrated and younger looking. These are just two of the major points of silk pillow cases that have been touted in numerous articles recently and by a lot of people. Buying a silk pillow case set for the person you love will show them you care about not only how well they sleep (possibly fewer sniffles) but also how they look when they wake up (possibly fewer wrinkles over time). Of course, there’s no guarantee that these two things will occur as there are many other factors affecting them, but it’s the thought that counts, right?
The last reason silk pillow cases make great romantic gifts for Valentine’s Day is because they are a little different than the normal gifts of flowers, chocolates or even the last-minute staple of stuffed animals. Buying silk pillow cases requires forethought and planning. The fact that you were thinking about the person and trying to get them a nice gift is sometimes far more important than the actual gift itself. Flowers are nice and always appreciated, but a nice silk pillow case set may be more appreciated and not that expensive if you look around for good deals. Just don’t go super cheap – you’ll ruin all the good will you built up by buying something cheap that feels terrible.
Silk pillow cases aren’t as romantically charged as silk sheets or silk clothing of various kinds. They can be as romantic as the giver wishes. Not as much as silk sheets, of course, but buying silk pillow cases will never be an unromantic gesture. It all depends on how the gesture is played. If played right, then it could be a very nice Valentine’s Day indeed. So when thinking of Valentine’s Day this year, or any special occasion for the special person in your life, think of silk pillow cases. They might be just the ticket.
