There are few days in the year that count as compulsory gift giving days, and Valentine’s Day definitely qualifies.
Whether you have a new Valentine or have an existing special someone to celebrate the day with this year, a simple token of appreciation is always a gesture well received by your other half, or even perhaps, your hot date.
It’s fair to say that gift giving is not a one way street – you don’t expect something for nothing. It’s frowned upon, selfish and quite frankly a little inconsiderate. I mean, imagine getting someone super excited by suggesting carb filled goodness to come, only to declare that it isn’t in fact for their pleasure of consuming? Okay maybe a touch exaggerated with the food analogy, but you get the point we’re trying to emphasise, right? Bottom line is: cake is important and thoughtfulness is applauded.
Ultimately, it’s reciprocation of attentive action that strikes the right balance in a relationship, or anything in life, ever. Valentine’s Day should be a day where symbolism of mutual respect and love is warranted – despite of who wears the pants.
So take note; if your partner has their gift giving skills down pat, you should too.
