Me and hubby consider it as another day, as everyday should be treated special days. We must not only show our affection and love on Valentine’s Day, but should extend to other days too. So, everyday should be treated Valentine’s Day (especially now we are married and once a while we are losing those loving attitudes!).
We seldom buy gifts for each other on Valentine’s Day after we married, as we think it is waste of money! Yes, perception on money changed once we got married. However, this year I have planned to give my hubby a Burberry Brit fragrance which he has been mumbling of buying for few months! Sssshhhh! Keep it a secret *wink*. In addition, we make it a must to have dinner either a day before or after Valentine’s Day. We don’t like to be caught with those lovey-dovey crowds and “throat cut” by price hike on Valentine’s Day.
On the day-to-day basis, we would make it a habit to SMS each other “I love you” or “I miss you”. We may not say the words out aloud but we know we still love each others. ~smile~ Like Ronan Keating sang “you say the best, when you say nothing at all”! So, action is better than words. Like a morning and good night kisses, and a warm hug are simple gesture of love! I don’t want expensive gifts just to know how much my hubby love me, right? Love does not weigh based on money.
Regardless of what your thoughts about Valentine’s Day, here are a few ideas to help make this day special for your spouse and yourself. Remember that Valentine's Day isn't just about giving and receiving gifts. It is also a time to reflect on your love for one another.
1. Say "I love you" to your spouse more often.
2. Think of ways to show your love. Try something different to surprise your spouse.
3. Don't forget food. Dining out or have a romantic dinner together.
4. Write a love letter to your spouse. Or send a nice MMS or SMS with those catchy pictures via mobile phone.
