No, this is not another lovey-dovey post for Valentine’s day. I don’t do sappy.
I normally detest events that involve one way transactions; me having to splurge on gifts for my loved ones. Don’t get me wrong, I love giving gifts.My wallet doesn’t. The whole process makes her feel a bit “empty”.
But just because it’s Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean we all need to go skint. It’s the thought that counts after all, isn’t it?
And here are a few ways we could avoid going all out (but still going all out on the love part) this V-day:
- Cook them a nice meal at home
Yes, you may not be the next Gordon Ramsay but nothing says I love you like a good meal with whole lotta love.
P.S Here’s to hoping their favourite dish is pancakes, not steak tarte.
- ONE WORD: BENSKLING
Because this guy has the BEST greeting cards! I have yet to see someone so young but so talented.
And here’s a link to a place where you can get these beautiful thaaangs for less than 2$!
- Write them a letter
Saying all those things that were left unsaid.
P.S Throw in a movie quote or an inside joke. Oughta make them smile.
- Be their personal masseuse
Because I would literally marry someone who willing rubs my feet after work.
- Discount vouchers
For something they enjoy doing. Someone got me one on books. He still holds my heart because of that one reason.
- Sexual favours
Need I say more?
Regardless of how you choose to spend this day, splurging or not, I sure hope you have a rad time. Considering you are actually celebrating and are not like me, spending it at work.
I am not sappy. I don’t do sappy. But having the one you love by your side IS a reason to celebrate.
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!
