Spread the Love This Valentine's Season

Posted by Mark & Heidi Shilensky on

There's love in the air again. Yes, you can feel it. Really, it doesn't matter whether you're in a committed relationship or not. Valentine's Day is around the corner, and everyone is gearing up to shower their loved ones with lavish gifts and spread the love around.

You may be the type of person who doesn't put too much of a premium on Valentine's Day and the entire gravitas that goes into it. Still, you've got to admit that the day does have a lot of significance. Considering the events that have unfolded this past year, why not show some love to someone this Valentine's Day and let them know how much you love them?

As explained, Valentine's Day this year is much more than just the flowers and the fancy dinners and everything else you do to show off on social media. All of that is great, but this year, try to go with the best intentions instead. Make your gestures more meaningful and symbolic instead of the everyday material things that people get for one another.

So, without wasting any time, let's take a look at some quick items you could get that special person in your life this season:

  • Jewelry: They say you can never go wrong with jewelry. Well, this is definitely true. Beyond being valuable, jewelry can easily be symbolic. Since your partner will wear it often, you know they'll be thinking of you always.
  • A Work-Related Item: Remote work appears to be the new normal. If your partner has had to make this switch in the past year, it's not too late to find them something that can make work easier. You could get a standing desk or a coffee mug, or perhaps you could get them a new computer to make things easier.
  • A Minimalistic Portrait: Depending on your partner's decor, you could get them some lovely portraits to brighten up their home. Portraits always beautify a space, so it's a win-win.
  • New Shoes: Get your man a pair of oxfords for official trips. Get your woman a pair of heels for that fancy dinner. There's no such thing as having too many shoes.

There are definitely more items you could think of when getting the ideal Valentine's Day gift. Just be creative and think of ways to spread the love around.

Also, remember that Valentine's Day doesn't have to be about people in relationships alone. You could find a friend who's dear to your heart or a family member and get them something to show how special they are to you.
