Geneva Seal Fine Jewelry & Timepieces in Chicago took the weekend to think about the winner of our Facebook Valentine's Day contest. We asked the ladies to post a unique idea or a piece of Valentine's Day advice for men in order to win a gift from Geneva Seal Fine Jewelry & Timepieces.
The decision wasn't an easy one. Many ladies took the time out of their day to write a detailed description of a sweet Valentine's Day idea. Chicago's favorite jeweler, Leonard Goldberg, decided between two creative and non traditional ideas after reading every single post.
He explained, "Picking a winner took me some time because we had so many great ideas but most of them were based on your standard date night. A man should be sending you flowers, taking you out to dinner, surprising you with little gestures of love daily so those responses didn't get me. But then, there were three posts, two of which had the same idea that I thought were more original than the rest."
Goldberg continues, "The first one was written by Irina LobanNova and the second/third by Beta Nourahmadi and Maria McCord. Irina focused on spending the day spreading love to those who need it the most. To volunteer at a nursing home or homeless shelter, followed by a romantic night with hot chocolate and ice skating is a charming idea. Irina's idea wasn't focused on herself, instead she wanted to spread love to those who may not be feeling loved. That's what Valentine's day is all about. You could do dinners and chocolates every day of the year. Bita and Maria also came up with a unique idea about creating a scavenger hunt. I thought that was creative and different. But the winner is definitely Irina! Congratulations to all of the ladies who posted some great ideas. It was fun reading your thoughts on how you want to spend Valentine's Day."
Our winner, Irina LobaNova, will be gifted with a special sparkler from Geneva Seal Fine Jewelry & Timepieces. The following text was taken from her Facebook post:
"How about sign up to volunteer at a nursing home or homeless shelter and spread the love. Valentine's day is about showing love and appreciation, and what better way to show share it than sharing it with people who don't have loved ones anymore....and then of course take your lady to a get a cup of hot chocolate and go ice skating at the Maggie Daley Park."
