We’re all more than familiar with the perils of the best-known Valentine’s Day gift-giving clichés: Surprise your better half with a box of chocolates, say, or a plush teddy bear clutching a single red rose on the evening of February 14, and you may find yourself on the receiving end of a less-than-enthusiastic reception come nightfall.
It almost goes without saying: Choosing just the right Valentine’s Day gift is a challenge of colossal proportions. The pressure to get it right is especially intense for men, because—and let’s just be honest here, guys—most of us aren’t terribly skilled when it comes to picking out a gift that’s romantic but not sleazy. Or a gift that’s touching, but not saccharine or cutesy. Or one that’s particularly meaningful, but not too over-the-top.
Of course, it helps immensely if you actually understand the disposition of the woman you’re buying for. Is she the type who’d be genuinely flattered by a heart-shaped box of candy? Or would she prefer a quietly romantic night in that didn’t involve cooking for you or the kids? Those can sometimes be tough questions to answer, even if your Valentine is a woman you’ve been sharing a home and a bed with for years.

If you’ve lived in the Bucks County or Montgomery County areas for any length of time, you’re probably familiar with the Best of Bucks readers’ choice contest that’s organized annually by the Bucks County Courier Times. Our local Doylestown newspaper, The Intelligencer, runs its own readers’ choice contest each year as well — it’s known as the Best of Bucks-Mont.
Every autumn, both papers list the community’s favorite businesses, products and services, and this year, Doylestown Gold Exchange & Jewelers came out on top in not one but two different categories. To say that we’re both humbled and incredibly grateful would be a huge understatement.
In The Intelligencer’s Best of Bucks-Mont poll, we were honored as “One of the Best Jewelry Stores” in the two-county region. Which isn’t bad for a shop that’s been in business for less than three years! Some of you may remember we actually won the very same honor in last year’s contest.
But much to our surprise, both papers awarded us the top prize in a brand-new category, Best Gold & Precious Metal Buyers.
