With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, this is the time of year where people either love it or they loathe it. This has gone from a time to celebrate your partner and show your appreciation for them to an over commercialised event for retailers to take advantage of.
I have noticed Valentine’s Day seems to be geared a lot more towards the females and spoiling them with a fancy dinner, some beautiful flowers, their favourite box of chocolates and of course that little teddy that says ‘I Love You’ on it. Now don’t get me wrong, there is NOTHING WRONG with getting these for your partner, they are cute and are bound to be enjoyed but is that really what this is for?
There is that argument that yes you are supposed to show your love and appreciation to your significant other all the time not just on one day of the year, and I completely agree! Especially when you don’t have that special person to share this holiday with. However, just like birthdays and anniversaries this one day can be used to show that little extra appreciation for your partner, and give you that excuse you might be looking for to dress up extra cute and show each other off.
Stay true to your relationship and each other; just because this event is encouraging you to do something for each other, if it isn’t you, don’t do it 🙂 It’s true that it’s the smaller things that mean the most. Go out for ice cream instead of a fancy dinner or stay in and cook for each other. Give something meaningful that’s individual to each of you. But no matter if you’re celebrating this event or not just remember to show each other how much you love each other all the time ❤️
until next time,
