Valentines Rock For Him Reviewed

A Gift For Him

Valentine's Day is rapidly approaching and I have been on the look-out for something to give that special man in my life. I would like to review a gift that I think is pretty neat for my man and might be for yours, also. 

When it comes to that special "him" in our lives it is sometimes difficult to come up with something clever and yet a little on the romantic side. At least it is for me. 

Some of you may not be old enough to remember the "pet rock" fad that swept across the U. S. back in the 1970s but I think a lot of you probably will remember. Just in case you don't recall this phenomenon, I'll give you a little history. Back in 1975 an advertising executive named Gary Dahl came up with the idea of pet rocks. For about six months these rocks were all the rage. Dipping into your wallet for around $4 you could get your own pet or one for someone else that came in a box with breathing holes and straw to keep the little guy or gal comfortable. Apparently, this Mr. Dahl was a bit of a genius because it is estimated that he sold 1.5 million of these quiet little pets that needed no extra care making him a millionaire six times over. Now do you remember? 

I've seemed to digress a little but I felt you should understand why I have picked this particular gift for my honey for Valentine's Day this year. There is some sentiment involved and some nostalgia. That was part of my quest in looking for a gift for him...a bit of nostalgia. I found this particular item that just seemed catch my eye.

I love the sentiment about my heart beating for him and that he is my rock. He truly is, you know. Always there standing firm and strong. Unlike the pet rocks of old, he does need to be fed and looked after but I don't mind doing those things for him at all.

So, what do you think? Would a Valentines Rock for him work this year?

  2. I think that is a fabulous gift idea and a constant reminder of how much he is loved. btw, I definitely remember the pet rocks! Kids used to carry them to school in the pockets and show them off to friends like they were really special. However, none were ever as special as the sentimental rock you have chosen for your sweetheart.

  3. That is indeed and unusual Valentine gift. I like that it's portable and doesn't have to reside on a wall in one room. It's easy to take from home to office and even fit into a pocket when needed for extra comfort or encouragement. It could even sit on the bedside table in a hospital room if needed.

  4. Oh I like this gift. I know the man in my life could use a good paper weight and this one with it's saying engraved on it, is beautiful. Thank you for this great suggestion.....

  5. I absolutely love rocks with quotes. My son has three in his room. In fact if I were to start a collection, I'd want to start one of these. People in my family and others as well will paint rocks and write inspirational sayings on them and put them on the waterfront here in Toronto. So fun to find them when you're strolling along the shore. I do love the valentine rock, very nice.
