The Internet is loaded with fun Valentine’s Day ideas. We all know that a quiet dinner at a French restaurant is a great way to celebrate the evening, but what about the special things that you shouldn’t do?
Don’t forget the day. It sounds silly to think that someone could forget it’s Valentine’s Day, but rest assured, they can. Men and women alike can get busy and lose track of the date. Make a note, mark your calendar, and write it on your hand.
Don’t be cheap. Valentine’s Day should be the day that you celebrate your love for another person. It’s the thought that counts is fine for Christmas, but it’s the gift that counts for Valentine’s Day. Some people try to say that they don’t believe in commercialized holidays… and those people are usually cheap.
Don’t buy a generic gift. Finding a gift for the one you love can be difficult. It is common to wait until the last minute to buy the gift, which will dramatically decrease your chances of finding a decent one. Do not buy a generic gift. A special gift with a little thought and effort will go a long way.
Don’t forget to make reservations. Valentine’s Day is the holiday based around reservations. You’ve got fancy dinners, romantic getaways, and possibly a masseuse. The nice places always book up quickly, so don’t expect to squeeze in without a reservation.
Don’t forget to cater to their needs. Valentine’s Day is not only about love. It’s about showing affection and catering to your love’s every whim. So hop to it… breakfast in bed, specially packed lunches… here it comes.
