Valentine's Day is one of the biggest holidays for romance and for lavishing gifts on that special someone in your life. While flowers and chocolates may be the most common gifts exchanged on that day, why not consider a gift that may grow in value year after year? Then you would truly be giving the gift that keeps on giving. Want to learn about some value-gaining gifts for your loved ones? Check out some of the ideas listed below.
1. TREASURY BONDS
Treasury bonds are one reliable gift that grows in value for those who are patient. Consider throwing in a bond with your Valentine's card and give them a little bit of savings growth without any effort on their part.1
A popular gift for Valentine's Day is jewelry. High-quality jewelry made from precious stones, gold, silver, or platinum may make a great accessory and a good investment. If you do your research and find a reputable jeweler, you may have a piece that increases in value over time.2
Sometimes those old, unique, one-of-a-kind items are worth a lot now and even more in the future. While it may take some legwork and a lot of research to find an item or piece with a high potential to increase in value, you may have a gift that is likely to appreciate in value and be one they won't soon forget.2
Artwork makes a beautiful and personalized gift for any occasion. If you get a piece from specific artists or time periods, you may end up with a piece that has the ability to appreciate in value for years to come. While it may not be feasible to buy a painting from one of the known masters due to the high expense, works from up-and-coming artists may turn out to be valuable as well. Talk to known art enthusiasts to see what recommendations they may have to offer.2
5. A TRADING ACCOUNT
Has your loved one considered starting their own investments? Why not open a trading account with funds to help them get started? While it may not seem like the most romantic gesture, it shows a commitment towards their financial future.2
