Another year, another Valentine’s Day around the corner. While this is an exciting occasion for many, there are plenty who dread cheesy romance - especially if you’re out of thoughtful and meaningful gift ideas, with the holiday just a few days away.

If you find traditional romantic gifts a little overdone, we’ve got a few ideas that will help you nail a gift that’s not just exciting but entirely out of the ordinary too.

Some of these are also excellent if you’ve decided to celebrate yourself this Valentine’s Day - it’s a great opportunity to honour a lifelong commitment to the one person you can truly count on: Yourself. 

Now of course many SendGold customers have already send the gift of gold this year - the perfect last minute gift - with their custom message and unique virtual gift card. But if you still need other ideas, here is a list we've come up with:

An Amazon gift card

Valentine’s gift-giving can be stressful because no matter how well you know someone, there may be certain things they don’t share with you - like their secret obsession with miniature Disney figurines, for instance.

Regardless of what they’re not telling you, Amazon gift cards are the perfect Valentine’s Day gift because you’re basically just sponsoring a shopping spree on one of the biggest e-commerce marketplaces on the internet. No biggie. 

A smart home assistant

Smart homes are all the rage these days and if you’re looking for a gift that will add real value to your partner’s (or your) life, a smart home assistant is a surefire choice.

Not only can these order you an Uber, place your go-to order on the Domino’s app, and wake you up on time, but soon, you will be able to have entire conversations with sophisticated assistants like Alexa.

The best part about buying one of these devices is that they’re available at different price points and come with incredible features - did you know that they can even double as powerful Bluetooth speakers?

Digital gold

They say diamonds are forever but few naturally-occurring commodities like gold have retained value over thousands of years and continue to be highly relevant, high-value investments.

If you want to be more creative than simply gifting your partner a gold chain or any type of gold jewellery, digital gold is a great way to make an investment on behalf of your loved one this Valentine’s Day - it doesn’t get any more non-romantic, yet deeply meaningful, than that!

Digital gold also happens to be a great gift to give yourself - one that will bail you out on a rainy day, especially given that gold only continues to become more scarce and is increasing in value.

On our app, SendGold, you can not just buy and wrap up your gift in exciting Valentine’s Day-inspired gift wrap, but you can also sell your gold just as instantly as you buy it!

A weighted blanket

Another extremely popular (and non-romantic) gift idea is the weighted blanket that has set the internet ablaze with its proven benefits for anxiety and sleep.

Basically, these fluffy duvets, built with innovative cooling technology, are weighted, which means that when you cover yourself in them, there’s a relaxing pressure placed wherever your body is covered.

Proven to improve sleep, these blankets can be bought at different weights for people of different ages, tailoring the weight of the blanket with the bodyweight of the person it’s bought for.

Blue-light-blocking glasses

If you or your partner are all about the latest tech goodies up for grabs, blue-light-blocking glasses are a high-tech way to commemorate one of the most romantic days of the year.

These are perfect for people who spend all day in front of a computer or peering at their smartphones (basically, all of us). The glasses filter harmful blue light that disrupts the body’s Circadian Rhythm, which ultimately throws your sleep cycle off-balance.

Celebrate Valentine’s day with fun gift ideas that are meaningful and non-romantic

Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be celebrated the way society demands you to. On the 14th of February, gift your special someone something that’s not a framed photo, a spa treatment or jewellery and actually make them feel special with something that’s a little different.

If it’s just you this Valentine’s Day, our gift ideas are still amazing - you just get to enjoy all the benefits yourself. Head to SendGold to begin your Valentine’s Day shopping - gold is a gift that keeps giving.

In a previous blog post we outlined some of the fundamental differences between owning physical gold and owning gold derivatives like ETFs:

https://www.sendgold.com/gold-etf-it-always-pays-to-read-the-fine-print/

In a research note to their clients last week major global bank ABN AMRO takes this distinction a step further. Rather than their being one gold price, they suggest that in practice there are actually two: physical gold and gold derivatives.

https://insights.abnamro.nl/en/2019/12/a-world-with-two-gold-prices/

“In times of financial crisis” the author writes, “the price representing physical gold will increase much faster than its non-physical counterpart”.  

And for a major bank dealing almost exclusively in paper-based accounts and investments their conclusion is also notable, and echoes what we at SendGold believe: “When there is zero trust in the financial system, the only safe option for investors is still physical gold”.

SendGold receives investment from Melbourne-based family offices led by leading wealth management firm EL&C Baillieu.

SendGold is pleased to announce that it has received an investment from several Melbourne-based family offices in a round led by EL&C Baillieu.  This investment is in addition to the current crowdsourced funding (CSF) round that is open on the Birchal funding platform until Thursday 19th December.

"In my opinion, fiat currencies are faith documents; crypto currencies are faith data signals”, stated Andrew Hellier, EL&C Baillieu. ”However with simple commodity exchange in the palm of your hand, based on 100% physical gold, SendGold may just be onto something.”

Funds raised will be used to drive transaction volume over the next 12 months. Just this week SendGold went live in the United Arab Emirates, the centre of gold trading throughout the Middle East region.

Jodi Stanton, SendGold CEO said, "More and more the penny is dropping for consumers as it has been for sophisticted investors. EC&L Baillieu has been through every market high and low from as far back as 1889. We are delighted to have such a pretigious wealth management firm in our corner." 

Hellier continued, "If the engine of fintech disruption is technology, the fuel of fintech disruption is the  growing customer awareness of unjustifiable intermediary costs. Good ideas always find an audience.”

Yesterday Goldman Sachs released a research report to their largest clients, saying the case for owning gold is now “as strong as ever”. 

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/goldman-says-case-diversifying-gold-202759315.html

But towards the back of the Goldman report was an interesting chart.

We’re always on the lookout for new data points that help our customers understand what’s happening in the gold market.

Many analysts follow the inflows of physical gold into ETF products. They use this data to gauge institutional gold demand. ETF flows are shown as the black line on the following chart:

But what caught our eye, explained in the report, is the blue line on the chart.

Goldman analysts did the legwork of asking the major vaulting services (like Brink’s Global Services and G4S) and national customs regulators how much gold in total was actually flowing into their countries and vaults.

This is interesting because it captures gold demand by large investors that would otherwise not be reported elsewhere.

The conclusion is that large investors are adding significantly more to their gold holdings than has otherwise been reported.

With currency and trade wars around the globe and the shift in policy by the Reserve Bank of Australia to so-called “quantitative easing”, we agree with Goldman Sachs: the case for owning gold is getting stronger than ever.

We’re always on the lookout for new data points that help our customers understand what’s happening in the gold market.

Many analysts follow the inflows of physical gold into ETF products. They use this data to gauge institutional gold demand. ETF flows are shown as the black line on the following chart:

But what caught our eye, explained in the report, is the blue line on the chart.

Goldman analysts did the legwork of asking the major vaulting services (like Brink’s Global Services and G4S) and national customs regulators how much gold in total was actually flowing into their countries and vaults.

This is interesting because it captures gold demand by large investors that would otherwise not be reported elsewhere.

The conclusion is that large investors are adding significantly more to their gold holdings than has otherwise been reported.

With currency and trade wars around the globe and the shift in policy by the Reserve Bank of Australia to so-called “quantitative easing”, we agree with Goldman Sachs: the case for owning gold is getting stronger than ever.

SENDGOLD IS LIVE IN THE UAE!

SYDNEY - SendGold announced today that their digital gold money app is now live in the United Arab Emirates, the centre of gold trading throughout the Middle East region.

“We’re very excited to open SendGold to residents of the UAE as the first country in one of the world’s most important regions for consumer gold demand” said SendGold Executive Director Steve Bond.

“Dubai alone accounts for nearly 25% of world gold trade” Bond continued, “and the SendGold app makes it easier than ever to acquire gold at very competitive prices, use it for instant payments or gifts, or cash out to bank accounts in the local currency”.

The SendGold app is also targeted as a simple, fast, and cost-effective method for overseas workers and expats to send funds back home. The Dubai/India channel is a major remittances corridor and workers and investors in both countries prefer to hold gold over their local currencies, as these have had a track record of losing value over time.

In addition, the company can now finalise several commercial relationships with third party distrubiton partners in the region.

The price of gold has risen 17.9% in the last 12 months in the UAE, far outstripping the interest that could be earned in a typical bank account. In another key SendGold market, the gold price in Indian rupees is up 19.5% in the same period. SendGold payment transfers are instant, compared to bank transfers that can take 1-3 days.

One of the tools the company will use to promote SendGold in the UAE is their innovative augmented-reality game Gold Rush by SendGold, which gamifies customer awareness and acquisition in a way not previously seen in the gold industry.

Gold Rush enables the company to attract new users remotely, without the need for local bricks-and-mortar presence. “Gold Rush gives us global awareness reach at extremely low cost” said Bond. “It’s good fun, but it’s also good business”.

“With our platform approach we can typically launch in a new country in less than 10 days”, said Bond. “And the other countries in the region are also very strong gold buyers. We'll have more annoucements to follow soon."

Another year, another Valentine’s Day around the corner. While this is an exciting occasion for many, there are plenty who dread cheesy romance - especially if you’re out of thoughtful and meaningful gift ideas, with the holiday just a few days away.

If you find traditional romantic gifts a little overdone, we’ve got a few ideas that will help you nail a gift that’s not just exciting but entirely out of the ordinary too.

Some of these are also excellent if you’ve decided to celebrate yourself this Valentine’s Day - it’s a great opportunity to honour a lifelong commitment to the one person you can truly count on: Yourself. 

Now of course many SendGold customers have already send the gift of gold this year - the perfect last minute gift - with their custom message and unique virtual gift card. But if you still need other ideas, here is a list we've come up with:

An Amazon gift card

Valentine’s gift-giving can be stressful because no matter how well you know someone, there may be certain things they don’t share with you - like their secret obsession with miniature Disney figurines, for instance.

Regardless of what they’re not telling you, Amazon gift cards are the perfect Valentine’s Day gift because you’re basically just sponsoring a shopping spree on one of the biggest e-commerce marketplaces on the internet. No biggie. 

A smart home assistant

Smart homes are all the rage these days and if you’re looking for a gift that will add real value to your partner’s (or your) life, a smart home assistant is a surefire choice.

Not only can these order you an Uber, place your go-to order on the Domino’s app, and wake you up on time, but soon, you will be able to have entire conversations with sophisticated assistants like Alexa.

The best part about buying one of these devices is that they’re available at different price points and come with incredible features - did you know that they can even double as powerful Bluetooth speakers?

Digital gold

They say diamonds are forever but few naturally-occurring commodities like gold have retained value over thousands of years and continue to be highly relevant, high-value investments.

If you want to be more creative than simply gifting your partner a gold chain or any type of gold jewellery, digital gold is a great way to make an investment on behalf of your loved one this Valentine’s Day - it doesn’t get any more non-romantic, yet deeply meaningful, than that!

Digital gold also happens to be a great gift to give yourself - one that will bail you out on a rainy day, especially given that gold only continues to become more scarce and is increasing in value.

On our app, SendGold, you can not just buy and wrap up your gift in exciting Valentine’s Day-inspired gift wrap, but you can also sell your gold just as instantly as you buy it!

A weighted blanket

Another extremely popular (and non-romantic) gift idea is the weighted blanket that has set the internet ablaze with its proven benefits for anxiety and sleep.

Basically, these fluffy duvets, built with innovative cooling technology, are weighted, which means that when you cover yourself in them, there’s a relaxing pressure placed wherever your body is covered.

Proven to improve sleep, these blankets can be bought at different weights for people of different ages, tailoring the weight of the blanket with the bodyweight of the person it’s bought for.

Blue-light-blocking glasses

If you or your partner are all about the latest tech goodies up for grabs, blue-light-blocking glasses are a high-tech way to commemorate one of the most romantic days of the year.

These are perfect for people who spend all day in front of a computer or peering at their smartphones (basically, all of us). The glasses filter harmful blue light that disrupts the body’s Circadian Rhythm, which ultimately throws your sleep cycle off-balance.

Celebrate Valentine’s day with fun gift ideas that are meaningful and non-romantic

Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be celebrated the way society demands you to. On the 14th of February, gift your special someone something that’s not a framed photo, a spa treatment or jewellery and actually make them feel special with something that’s a little different.

If it’s just you this Valentine’s Day, our gift ideas are still amazing - you just get to enjoy all the benefits yourself. Head to SendGold to begin your Valentine’s Day shopping - gold is a gift that keeps giving.

In a previous blog post we outlined some of the fundamental differences between owning physical gold and owning gold derivatives like ETFs:

https://www.sendgold.com/gold-etf-it-always-pays-to-read-the-fine-print/

In a research note to their clients last week major global bank ABN AMRO takes this distinction a step further. Rather than their being one gold price, they suggest that in practice there are actually two: physical gold and gold derivatives.

https://insights.abnamro.nl/en/2019/12/a-world-with-two-gold-prices/

“In times of financial crisis” the author writes, “the price representing physical gold will increase much faster than its non-physical counterpart”.  

And for a major bank dealing almost exclusively in paper-based accounts and investments their conclusion is also notable, and echoes what we at SendGold believe: “When there is zero trust in the financial system, the only safe option for investors is still physical gold”.

SendGold receives investment from Melbourne-based family offices led by leading wealth management firm EL&C Baillieu.

SendGold is pleased to announce that it has received an investment from several Melbourne-based family offices in a round led by EL&C Baillieu.  This investment is in addition to the current crowdsourced funding (CSF) round that is open on the Birchal funding platform until Thursday 19th December.

"In my opinion, fiat currencies are faith documents; crypto currencies are faith data signals”, stated Andrew Hellier, EL&C Baillieu. ”However with simple commodity exchange in the palm of your hand, based on 100% physical gold, SendGold may just be onto something.”

Funds raised will be used to drive transaction volume over the next 12 months. Just this week SendGold went live in the United Arab Emirates, the centre of gold trading throughout the Middle East region.

Jodi Stanton, SendGold CEO said, "More and more the penny is dropping for consumers as it has been for sophisticted investors. EC&L Baillieu has been through every market high and low from as far back as 1889. We are delighted to have such a pretigious wealth management firm in our corner." 

Hellier continued, "If the engine of fintech disruption is technology, the fuel of fintech disruption is the  growing customer awareness of unjustifiable intermediary costs. Good ideas always find an audience.”

Yesterday Goldman Sachs released a research report to their largest clients, saying the case for owning gold is now “as strong as ever”.
