Suppose you are often lucky in life, and health and beauty will be your constant companions))
I hope on this day, people close to you will give you the gifts you desire, and I want to tell you about the most unusual gifts in the history that gave love men their precious women.
Examples of such gifts are many, but I chose those that, for various reasons, the most impressed me.
Read about what are the most unique gifts in the world gave their beloveds.
The most famous
Let’s start with the most popular gift of the Palace of the Taj Mahal, which was built by the Indian Shah Jehan in memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal.
No doubt, the mausoleum is an architectural gem, is so endearing all its beauty that even the invaders-Persians, having ruined everything, didn’t raise my hand on this beauty.
It is constructed of translucent marble and inlaid with turquoise, agate, carnelian, malachite. The marble has a rare feature: in afternoon sunlight he looks white, the dawn and the sunset pink, and in the moonlight becomes silvery.
Shah Jehan loved daughter of the first vizier of his father Mumtaz Mahal when Jehan was 15 and she was 14. And even then he was ready to marry, but at the behest of his father, who was guided by the interests of the state, was forced to marry first Persian Princess, then marry and even Hindu and only after that stars Lee is the father of Jehan became supportive loving couple and their wedding took place.
Impressive that Mumtaz Mahal was able throughout his life to keep the love and interest of the Shah, while giving birth to him 13 children. Only to her opinion, he listened, was allowed to attend important meetings and at her request was cancelled death sentences to criminals.
Mumtaz Mahal died during the birth of their 14th child, and she gave birth in a tent camp of Shah Jehan, accompanied him in his military campaign to pacify the rebellious province. At the time she was 36 years old.
According to legend infinitely heartbroken Shah Jehan swore to a dying beloved to build a beautiful mausoleum in her honor that will forever immortalize their love. The Taj Mahal became a posthumous gift to his beloved wife, where she was buried, and later, was buried, and Shah Jehan, forever reunited with his beloved.
The most expensive
This gift is considered to be one of the most expensive in history. It was made by the Greek billionaire Aristotle Onassis Jacqueline Kennedy before he married her. Aristotle gave Jackie the island of Skorpio located in the Ionian sea.
This island resembling a Scorpion, was a childhood dream Onassis, which he was able to exercise. And this precious thing he decided to give his future wife.
In 1968 she married Aristotle and Jackie.
By the way, a few years ago the island of Skorpio was sold by the granddaughter of Aristotle Onassis Athena more than 150 million US dollars.
Simply but tastefully
Sometimes the gift itself might not be worth a lot of money, to be simple and inconspicuous, but the fantasy lover makes it original and unique. An example is a simple ring donated by the poet Vladimir Mayakovsky his beloved Lilya Brik.
I will not recount the story of their love, not too romantic and festive, romantic but turned out to be the gift itself.
Mayakovsky gave Leela a simple ring on which were engraved the abbreviated initials L. Y. B. (Lilya Yuryevna Brik). The initials were arranged in a circle and, turning the ring, it was possible to read endless “LOVE”.
This ring Lilya Brik until the last days will be worn around the neck on a gold chain.
The most creative
Van Gogh was a very talented artist, but a man with a strange deeds, deeds on the verge of madness.
Even an object for his love, he has chosen not usual, van Gogh madly in love with a prostitute from a brothel in the street BU D,Arles Arles in France.
Versions where van Gogh decided to give her another lover extravagant gift, a few, but of the three we will consider the most “romantic”.
His beautiful “moth” Rachel, talking about the paintings of van Gogh, praised them, calling beautiful and at the same time adding that he is handsome enough. Nobody ever told him anything like that, so van Gogh asked: “what is beautiful about me?” But since special beauty, he was no different, even the prostitute was really confused, and hesitated not find anything better than to say: “I like your ears.”
Apparently so later van Gogh came to a brothel and handed Rachel a handkerchief in which was wrapped around his severed ear. “Saving the subject,” said her van Gogh, probably, thus deciding to make nice))
However, Rachel was not able to appreciate a gift from an excess of emotion she fainted, and later called the police.
And van Gogh recovered from the wounds, wrote his famous “self-Portrait with cut ear”.
Like usual roses…
In principle roses as a gift especially no surprise, they were presented in various quantities in different colours and in different situations. However, one of the men managed to make their unusual gift.
This man is a famous basketball player 60’s Joe Di Maggio, and gave the roses he’s one of the most famous women in the world, his wife Marilyn Monroe.
Of course, it is quite clear his desire to give beautiful flowers to a beautiful woman, but Joe Di Maggio did it daily for years!
He brought her roses every day when they lived together, continued every day to send her flowers, after they broke up. And when Marilyn died, Joe has continued to bring new bouquet of roses every week to her grave.
What to say… even such an ordinary gift can be so romantic.
P. S. But you have to admit that no matter how expensive and unusual gifts are not always, they are a measure of boundless love.
Shah Jehan, in addition to several wives and his beloved Mumtaz Mahal, like any “decent” ruler of the time had a dream of concubines.
— Aristotle Onassis, married to Jacqueline, after a while I started to meet with his former love Maria Callas, whom he abandoned to marry a famous woman — former wife of the President Kennedy.
— Mayakovsky fell in love with Lili Brik, who answered him in return, despite the fact that at the time was married to Osip Brik, and on a whim Lily they all lived together in one apartment, the door of which was attached a sign saying “Briks. Mayakovsky”. And Mayakovsky and Lilya constantly wowed novels on the side trying to “escape” from each other.
Alas, it turns out not always in a beautiful gift beautiful lies love…
But not to finish the material on a sad note, I will add that the beautiful love story you can read in the article “Incredible love — 5 beautiful stories” .
Besides of the above pairs one still continued to love each other forever. Although Merilin and Joe Di Maggio absolutely did not fit to each other in temperament and values, and because of this they had to divorce, the rest of time they felt each other’s warm feeling despite the gap. According to rumors they have even been designated the day of his “new” wedding — August 8, 1962, only 5 of August, Monroe was not…
Joe died in 1999, so never and not married still loved only one woman on the grave which he has over 20 years every week brings flowers.
I wish you not only great gifts, but also great relationships
