Red is the color of passion. One brand that has become synonymous with the color red is Netflix. Netflix can elicit passion, depending on the way you present it. Don't flippantly tell your valentine that you two are just going to stay in and watch a movie, or you may have a permanent sleeping arrangement with the couch. Instead, plan your romantic night in with an extravagant homemade dinner and plans to watch a sickeningly sweet chick flick with Netflix's streaming service. It is a great Valentine's gift that is also easy on the wallet.
The wow factor may be low at first, but in preparation, you should put several romantic comedies and dramas in the Instant Queue as a selling point. This gift is generally best for couples who love movies, but it will be particularly ideal on those cold, snowy nights when you'd rather not drive to a rental kiosk or video store. This gift option lets you both cuddle up on a wintery night and instantly choose a movie or television show.
When it comes to personalization, Netflix has several service options rather than custom color or presentation. You have the subscription option to order DVDs in the mail, anywhere from one to 8 at a time. The most popular option is watching instantly. Netflix streaming rarely gives you the best new releases, but its TV selection is quite strong. The movie selection is average at best. Those who know film know that the height of the rom-com boom was in the mid-90s, so Netflix has that area covered.
You also get to pick which movie genres are your favorite. Also, you can rate movies that you've seen in the past. Picking movies and genres will personalize the service, and Netflix will start recommending movies that you may never have seen based on your interests.
This Valentine's gift ranks very high in terms of continuous use compared to even higher-rated romantic gifts. It's a monthly service and payment that most subscribers stick with due to how inexpensive it is. So, long after the candles have melted away and the Valentine's Day dinner leftovers have been consumed, you can still watch movies on demand.
Ultimately, the quality of the service depends on your internet speed. If it is half-decent, you can watch a movie uninterrupted without any buffering. If you don't have an internet connection, getting one should be your first step.
Giving your valentine a movie for that special day seems tacky, but not if you give them the gift of watching movies whenever they like. Based on your interests, you can explore a variety of genres, from romance to independent films, documentaries and action movies. Even if you cannot find the specific new release you're looking for, there are thousands of other choices. This gift should never be presented on its own on Valentine's Day, though. For your safety and marital happiness, you should prepare a dinner and have roses ready, candles lit and a romantic place on the couch at the ready.
