There is barely a day left this February before the most romantic day of the year, Valentines Day is finally upon us. Have you planned for this special day in advance or like many, men in particular, are you guilty of leaving the days preparations to the very last minute?
Valentines Day is an easy annual occasion to overlook, the year is undoubtedly already full of birthdays, weddings and the traditional seasonal celebrations such as Easter, all of which hog the calendar and your free time. Never fear though with these useful Valentines Day tips.
Valentines Day is Commercialised
Many calendar celebrations has become overly commercialised meaning that they are exploited by retailers who will do their level best to try and part you from your hard earned cash. Flower selling in particular is big business on Valentines Day along with Spa breaks, keepsakes and romantic dinners at exotic restaurants.
It is easy to become caught up in the commercial side of Valentines Day, whilst forgetting that actually it is the small things that matter the most. Material items are great if you can afford them but actually spending time and devotion on the person that you love is a gift that no shop can ever sell to you.
For your partner or loved one just knowing that you took time out of your schedule to think of them properly; perhaps to prepare a meal, or a special keepsake or to book the entire day of work if Valentines Day falls on a week day. These are all things that exert minimal pressure on the wallet, yet exert maximum yield on how you show your partner that they are loved and truly appreciated. This something they will recognize and appreciate in times to come.
