The husband of a good friend of mine texted me and asked me what I think is the best Valentine’s Day gift for his wife. He said it should be something special because it is Valentine’s Day. I think asking me what his wife wants is pointless. He is the husband so he knows what the best gifts for her would be because he knows his wife more than anyone else.
I am wondering why thinking for Valentine’s Day gifts stresses most men and women and drive them up the wall. What’s with Valentine’s Day that other days don’t have? I understand that Valentine’s Day is the day of hearts, which means love. It may be a wonderful day, but wouldn’t it be great if you were to make everyday a Valentine’s Day and make your loved ones feel loved and special most days of the year? Oh yes, giving gifts can be done anytime of the year, not only on special occasions as we got used to. I know with the economy that we have right now, most of us are running short of cash. Well, gifts don’t always have to be elaborated. Most of the time the simple ones are the most appreciated. As they say, it is the thought that counts. You can just call a flower delivery or perhaps a light pat on the shoulder or a small gesture of concern will do. It does not only express your affection, it also strengthens bonds with family and friends.
One of the great things about giving gifts is that it is the giver and not the receiver who gains most from it. It will boost your feelings and will make you feel more caring. What are you waiting for? Show the love and compassion to your loved ones now and anytime of the year.
