Valentine’s Day can be a tricky one, it goes without saying that you shouldn’t have to splash out just to show someone you love them but there’s nothing wrong with using it as an excuse to celebrate a relationship.
Alternative gifts have become increasingly popular amongst couples, now the “internet’s most romantic site” has launched – offering lovebirds something different this Valentine’s Day.
The site, named 1000 couples, offers users a ‘forever space’ on the site wherein customers can leave their spouse a romantic note and couple it with a picture that’ll remain on the site incessantly.
With the initiative staying true to its name and only offering 1000 exclusive spaces, positions are already being snapped up by those wishing to give their other half something a little more unique this Valentine’s Day. The project will run from now until the 14th of February, promising to release a bespoke collage of all participants on the day.
Perhaps the best thing about the whole thing, is that half of all profits from the initiative will be donated to charity.
Harry, who was one of the first to grab a spot on 1000 couples explained “I met my wife [Nikita] 8 years ago online so the internet has always been a part of our love story. I tried 1000 Couples because I was impressed at the level of ingenuity & the flavour of romance in it. My wife loves Valentine’s Day & I wanted to gift her something unique. The price was a little steep but since the business donates 50% of all its profits to charity, it was fine for me & so I went ahead with it.”
The company also promises a host of exclusive discounts and offers with the package too, meaning if you fancy something a little more solid to accompany your Valentine’s Day gift, then there’s an opportunity to grab a bargain too.
Speaking to the founder of the project, he revealed that “the idea of launching 1000 Couples came to me when I saw many couples posting their lovely pictures and messages during the holiday season last month. I thought; let me make a website that creates a list of such 1000 people who wish to post a lovely photo and message for their partner.”
