Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and you do not want to forget to show your significant other the love and affection that they deserve! Nothing’s worse than when you both “agree” to do nothing special but only one truly meant it! To save from the awkwardness, here is a Valentine’s Day checklist that you can refer to!
Acknowledge the Day
Just because you agree to not do anything special, Valentine’s Day is still a day centered around love. Hopefully, you are at a place in your relationship where you love or at least care about your significant other so let them know that at least. Send them a text message in the morning when you wake up or, even better, write them a handwritten letter expressing how much you love, appreciate, and care for them. This doesn’t cost anything but your time and will surely mean so much to your significant other!
Many couples agree to not get each other anything big to save money. That is completely understandable! That doesn’t mean you can’t get them some sort of gift! Sentimental gifts aren’t expensive and have a personal touch that is bound to show just how much thought you put into the gift. Yes, the expensive jewelry and lavish bouquet of flowers are great gifts, but if you and your significant other agree to not break the bank, then that homemade scrapbook, book of poems, jar of dates, decorative picture frame, or personal playlists will mean just as much if not more! Showing thoughtfulness and attention is the best gift you can give!
Avoiding the Valentine’s Day Rush
Something else to make sure that you do is planning a date. This is something you don’t necessarily have to do on Valentine’s Day, but it is still something you can do the day before or after in order to avoid the rush of couples. It doesn’t have to be anything special, just some time spent together with your significant other. One great idea is to go after Valentine’s Day and buy a bunch of candy that inevitably goes on sale after the holiday passes! Whatever it is, you should still do something to commemorate your relationship.
Just do Something
If you are going to take something out of this, just remember to do SOMETHING. No matter how small you think it is, a simple acknowledgment of your partner and how much you love and care for them or a short trip to the store to stock up on discounted candy is good! No matter how simple, just do something. You don’t have to be the number one supporter of this day, but you do have to be your significant other’s biggest fan.
