Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. It is time to start contemplating gift ideas for your significant other. It is also time to start thinking about how you will spend your day.
Taylor Gillespie describes her ideal Valentine’s Day, “I would spend all day with them, watching movies with Chinese take-out. Then, whenever it gets to be night, we’d go and watch the stars.”
Sometimes, simplicity is the key.
Bobby Pruessner’s ideal Valentine’s Day would be “sitting on the couch, eating chocolate, and sleeping all day.”
If you're buying a gift, make it personal. It doesn’t even have to be purchased. You can make something yourself. It's not the gift itself or the money you spend on it that gives it meaning, it's the time and the thought that you put into it.
Make the gift a good one because the effort you put into it can either make or break the relationship. Be impressive, and let your significant other know that you care this Valentine’s Day.
Spend some time thinking about the kinds of things your partner (or anyone whom you’re giving the gift) enjoys and cherishes. If the receiver of the gift isn’t a fan of gifts at all, maybe an expensive gift isn’t the best idea. You just have to know what your friend, significant, parent, etc. wants this Valentine’s Day.
Do not wait until the last minute to come up with a gift, though.
According to some students, a simple gift is the best gift.
Kate Weiser states, “Anything that involves food is a perfect Valentine’s Day gift. By food, I mean chocolate, ice cream, and cake. Or anything that involves large amounts of sugar.”
On the other hand, you can be really extravagant with your ideas.
One senior suggests, “A four-foot teddy bear with chocolate and roses will be the perfect gift for my significant other!”
Don’t look at Valentine’s Day as a day to forget. No matter if you’re single or in a relationship, make Valentine’s Day your own to remember.
