Are you dating someone? Is there someone special in your life now? If the answer to these questions is “yes” then, you need to acknowledge Valentine's Day. It is expected of you to give a present to that special person. There is no way you can get away saying that Valentine's Day is just another Hallmark holiday, and nobody really believes in it. No, no, no. Time up for those thoughts! Now you need to show some action.
There is nothing more than showing your loved one that you care. Be it your lady love or the man in your life, you need to show them you love them, you care for them, and will be ready to go that extra mile to make them happy.
What is better than making them feel real special on Valentine’s Day. Oh, don’t shrug this article off saying “there’s a lot of time for that.” You never know, time just flies when you get busy settling down after the Christmas season.
Don’t let busy schedules make you late
There is always a lot to do after Christmas, and we tend to get so busy at work and in no time Valentine’s Day looms over you and you have not thought of anything. Then comes the usual dilemma of what to buy, the hurried shopping trip and succumbing to buying a present that will keep you in doubt till the end.
And if you have bought an MP3 player, you sure expect an “aww this is so nice.” But when he opens and says “oh, I wanted a tab”- that’s it! You go all red and wish you had time for some more thought and the “why didn’t I think about that!” stuff. All this is because you did not have the time to think, see the signs or just dwell on what your beau would like.
The trick is that you need to start early, and this is the right time for that. Your Valentine is so special; you don’t really want to give them something boring like a box of chocolates on Valentine’s Day. This age old idea of a gift is probably a weak effort if you are looking for romance.
What you need is a gift that is a commensurate with your relationship level!
Take time to think about your relationship
If you have been out only a few times, you need to gift something playful or funny.
If you have been together for a while now, it is for sure that your beau will expect something sentimental. And definitely, a handwritten message is a must!
Remember, that most women compare their Valentine’s gifts with their friends. You don’t want your friend to look awkward, do you? So give her something that will give other an opportunity to cluck over.
Your present should not be what you would like, but something that your beau would like. For instance, if you like basketball, and she is a Broadway show fan, please do not get her tickets to a basketball game. This is not the time to rationalize and get to see your favorite game.
Think of the money you can spend on the gift to your Valentine. If your hands are tight, you should go in for something creative that would touch the sentiments of that special person in your life. Everyone likes goodies and a little of their favorite drink as a present. Try one of the gourmet gift baskets that would suit your budget! If this is also not within your budget, set some candles and run a hot bath with some background music for a romantic Valentine evening!
