Do you have someone that you would like to acknowledge on Valentine’s Day? Man or woman, this has become an important day. What do you do, men? The easy answer is order flowers, make reservations, pick up candy and a piece of jewelry. What do you do, women? You could buy things like anything sports, movie DVDs, candy or something personal. This is the easy choice and can be expensive.
My first sentence is the key reason for Valentine’s Day; however we resort to merchandise to show our special person how much we value them. Are there better ways to demonstrate our love? Yes and a lot less money! What do you do? If price is the best way to show how much you love someone, most of us are in big trouble. If you significant other likes flowers, there are many varieties, and prices. Don’t forget plants as another way to give flower like products. Who says a dozen flowers is the only acceptable quantity? There are many different places to buy flowers and don’t miss out on wholesale flower marts.
Making reservations is easy as it gets! What does it take to call make reservations? Have you thought of cooking a meal? Have you thought of bringing in a meal? In the warmer areas of the country, a picnic can be very romantic. A picnic by the fireplace can be fun and romantic. What does your mate like? Maybe they would like to have time alone away from the children. Think about what your partner likes versus what is easy. You can make a day of it by cooking up a brunch. It is easier and a lot less money, if done at home. You can celebrate over the weekend versus Monday night on Valentine’s Day. You can prepare breakfast in bed, or a romantic dinner. There are lots of choices!
As a male, I have only received various gifts. Some of them were food that I enjoy such as oatmeal raisin cookies, pistachio nuts, and New York pizza. They ranged from my wife baking the cookies to getting my favorite pizza flown in from New York. Personal service certificates can be fun for massages, free pass or doing a chore. Doing special things for your mate can be personal, sexy or fun. Merely supplying my list of gifts will never satisfy most of you. What is important is to figure out what would make your man happy. Isn’t that what is important?
What is your budget for Valentine’s Day? You don’t have one, maybe you should. You can get away on very little and still show your mate that you appreciate them. Even if you want to spend more, you should be creative and spend the time to acknowledge your significant other in a more interesting way. You could surprise your mate and go away for the weekend. That is hardly doing Valentine’s Day on the cheap! There are literally thousands of things you can do. It is only limited by your imagination! What do think? Make this Valentine’s Day special. After all that is what is important!
