Whether you are dreading it or have been waiting all year for it, Valentine’s day requires one thing: showing the one you care about how much you love and appreciate them, even if you only do it once a year.
Showing you care is all you need to do to make it a great holiday.
With Valentine’s day comes the array of cliché gifts that many try avoiding. But if they don’t work, why would they have become clichés to begin with?
5 simple things that count on Valentine’s Day
Here are some Valentine’s Day cliché gifts that always get the job done.
Unless you’re allergic, everybody can appreciate a good bunch of flowers.
Flowers are always a great idea.
What’s more beautiful than a bouquet of red roses?
And if your significant other believes roses as cheesy, then go with something more out of the box, like a bouquet of sunflowers for instance.
Flowers are pretty and make one hell of a decoration. It can never go wrong?
If buying chocolate just seems like too extreme on the cliché ladder, any other kind of sweets will do the trick.
Who doesn’t love gummy bears? I know I do.
If you want to go down a more creative path, baking might be the thing for you. Red velvet cupcakes perhaps? Yum!
3. A card
Expressing yourself can be challenging, and for some, even impossible. That’s when your creative nature needs to jump into first gear.
What could be a better way of saying how you feel than by writing it?
It gives you plenty of time to think and say exactly what you want to say.
On Valentine’s Day, express your feelings in a hallmark card or step it up a notch by writing a poem.
Nothing says “I love you” like a beautiful piece of jewelry. Guys if you’re looking for that perfect gift for the one you’re with, go with jewels.
Just because it’s jewelry doesn’t mean you need to break your wallet.
Something as simple as a pair of earrings will do the trick.
Going out to a romantic dinner may seem like the go-to for many couples.
It doesn’t have to be boring though.
Cooking is another great alternative.
That is if either of you can actually cook.
But then again anyone can follow a recipe…right?
If not going out for the dinner won’t leave you disappointed or hungry for that matter.
