Valentines In Lincolnshire 2021 For Him And For Her
Valentines In Lincolnshire 2021 for him and for her. There’s lots on offer from our great County of Lincolnshire
Where to start? We all know how we interpret Valentines Day now but it wasn’t always the same. If the notion of Valentines day can change over time then 2021 is the ideal time to change it again. Here’s how to make Lincolnshire Valentines fitting for 2021; Don’t (solely) focus on Valentines Day as a day (or weekend) of gifts, cards, vouchers and displays of affection for partners and lovers. Instead, make Valentines in Lincolnshire 2021 a time when you focus your love and gratitude toward people around you.
Ancient & Modern
St Valentines Day in the 11th Century was about ‘Courtly Love’ referred to the act of ‘loving’ rather than love. In France around the time of the first Crusades (1099) Courtly Love was a term used where a knight would win the affections of his employers wife by performing deeds to impress her (there is no reference to sex or to ‘love’ as we understand it today). Times have changed and the modern interpretation of deeds to impress takes many forms from sending a card anonymously (closer to the Courtly Love idea where the affection would remain secret), to gifts of jewellery, chocolates and meals out.

Valentines In Lincolnshire for Him And For Her – Look For The Unusual And Unique
For those of you who know me you’ll know that I like art and all things ‘arty’. Alas, I can’t even draw a stick man properly so I’m lucky there are so many talented artists around doing what they do best. Creating art is a true gift but liking art is a very personal thing. Variety is key so if you’re looking for local art as a gift I highly recommend taking a look at the #LincsArtCraftHour posts on twitter. Scroll back to before Christmas to see what’s available and join us on Mondays at 12.00pm.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking that all art consists of a picture in a frame. Yes, you’ll find watercolours and oil paintings in frames as well as some very creative photography but you’ll also find other things like bespoke pottery and glassware too. You’ll find something you like for your ‘Valentines in Lincolnshire’ gift for him or for her. We are all individuals with individual tastes so take a look to find that unique gift for that special person this Valentines Day.

Valentines In Lincolnshire 2021 For Him And For Her – Made To Last
Traditionally we may have thought of a valentines gift as a short term gift designed to last a day or so. Jewellery is the exception to that rule of course but what about something quirky that’s made to last? Better still, something individual that’s made to last and is a ‘one off’ design! Finding a gift like that might be difficult in a normal shop but a bespoke painting or piece of art may be just what you’re looking for. I think I may get into trouble if I bring home any more paintings or vases but I’m always looking and sometimes I come across the perfect piece that captures the mood.
Valentines in Lincolnshire 2021 ‘is’ going to be different so now is your chance for some creative thinking. Something that captures the essence of your feelings during the last year as a gift sounds like a tall order. I recommend thinking about what your goal may be. A gift to show undying love is our usual idea for Valentines Day but in 2021 you may have broader considerations. A thoughtful gift to say thank you to a friend, neighbour or family member for their help and support may be the way to go. The gift may be as a thank you token for a hero and saviour whose help, support and love you couldn’t have done without during the pandemic. Food for thought!
Mothering Sunday will soon be upon us so if you know of something special that needs to be in a local blog give me a call. Contact me on 07966 174878 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Now is the time to get in touch if you would like to advertise here for the next blog. Don’t delay as it may just be the route to your next customer.
Domestic Abuse Is Real
A repeat message I know but by watching the video nd learning the signs you may actually be able to help someone.
Domestic abuse is a daily worry for many people across the UK and Lincolnshire is no exception! Do you know someone who used to be bubbly and outgoing but now seems more withdrawn? Perhaps you never see your friend alone anymore because the partner is always around to keep a ‘watchful eye’. These are just two signs of potential domestic abuse. Some signs (bruising) are obvious but control and abuse can take many forms. What can you do about it? You can contact @edanlincs (End Domestic Abuse Now in Lincolnshire) via twitter, through their website www.edanlincs.org.uk or by phone 01522 510041.
Call the National Domestic Violence Helpline 0808 2000 247 if you need help. If you need immediate help call Lincolnshire police on 101. If you are in danger dial 999 and if you need a silent call add 55. As a direct result the police control room WILL monitor and trace your call and will dispatch staff to rescue you. Don’t suffer alone. Do seek help. If you need refuge follow this link to REFUGE which is open 24 hours a day and has a ‘quick exit’ button for your safety.
If you know of someone who is or may be suffering, ‘do something about it’. There is a ‘domestic abuse’ button on the Lincolnshire Police website which will be useful for information and reporting. As a direct result, you could save someone a lot of pain and heartache.
In Case You Missed It
That’s it for now but you know the routine: ‘Stay Safe’ – Wash your hands regularly for at least 20 seconds, wear a face covering over your mouth and nose when asked to do so and keep a safe distance from people around you.
