Valentine’s Gifts for Your Digital Sweetheart or BFF

Digital SweetheartIf you’re already friends on Facebook, the world’s largest social network is making it easy for you to send someone a Valentine?s gift this year, without having to leave the house or your computer behind. So don’t fret that Valentine’s is around the corner and you’re empty-handed.

Facebook Gifts

All you need to do is visit the profile home page of the object of your affection or a friend you’d like to spoil this Valentine’s Day and click on the pink gift box with the pretty red ribbon. Select a gift within your budget and then choose an eCard to go along with the gift. You’ll have the option to share that you sent a gift to your friend, long-distance love, or someone you might have a digital crush on.

Facebook will notify the recipient that they’ve received a gift from you. They can then provide their address anonymously and be surprised when it arrives.

Even if their gift arrives after Valentine’s Day, they’ll know that you made the effort to select it in time. If they don’t accept the gift within 2 weeks, it will be automatically canceled and your credit card will be refunded.

A Night of Chocolate and Diamonds

Diamond Expert Fred Cuellar

Diamond Expert Fred Cuellar at Madame Chocolat

When the invitation arrived from my favorite Chocolatier, Madame Chocolat in Beverly Hills for a night of chocolate and diamonds along with Diamond Cutters International, it was hard not to notice.

The Best of Everything played the ultimate matchmaker by bringing together the finest chocolate and a newly launched diamond collection from the world’s famous diamond expert, Fred Cuellar. Fred was on site signing copies of the 6th edition of his book, How To Buy A Diamond: Insider Secrets For Getting Your Money’s Worth, 5th Edition.

Hasty Torres, the Chocolate Executive Officer at Madame Chocolat was proudly wearing a diamond necklace from the new collection. The designs are now available for sale at her Beverly Hills location. Prices range from $100 – $4,500.

The best part of the evening – 20% of the proceeds from chocolate and jewelry sales benefitted The Los Angeles Mission and Hollywood Media and Arts. Chocolate, diamonds, and giving back to charity. It’s a wonderful combination at the holidays.
