We’ve all been there, in the hunt for something special for the person in our life who we love more than anything. The problem is that we want to get them something unique, something that they’ll enjoy, but that desire for perfection ultimately becomes the roadblock that stands in our way. That’s why this article I found at Squidoo titled “Good Ideas For Valentines Day – Romantic Gestures” is worthy of a mention here.
Another problem many of us face is how much to spend and will the recipient think its as special as we did, will they enjoy it, and will it have the impact we intended? Love is about togetherness, sharing and caring. Its true that money isn’t a condition of love nor a reflection of love’s depth, but when possible its those gifts and romantic gestures that remind them why and how how much we love them. It’s like adding another piece of wood to a fire or fueling up your car… the little things in life that we do to express our love really do matter.
Valentine’s Day, while not really having anything to do with Saint Valentine in terms of how we celebrate it (there’s a great section in the article at Squidoo about this), is a special day for us to take a moment to express our love. Lovers the world over celebrate love on February 14th and there’s no day which comes close to the level of expression seen on Valentine’s Day. And it starts early! Even small children in schools across the globe share special Valentines and romantic gestures with the special one in their hearts.
Yes, Valentine’s Day is a truly special day. Spend less time worrying about what gift you’re going to give your love and more time enjoying the person and showing them every day that you love them. After all, that daily expression of love will be more valuable and eternal than anything you could possibly buy.
