As you make last minute preparations for valentine, be guided by the following tips for gift giving:
- Make it fresh. Give fresh flowers 💐, not plastic or synthetic ones. The essence of giving flowers is for the receiver to enjoy the natural fragrance so released. If you have to get it from your garden, go sniffing!
- Make it personal. Whatever the nature of the gift(s), add your significant other’s taste to it. Tie a pink ribbon 🎀 round the teddy bear (if that’s her favourite colour), get the strawberry flavoured chocolate 🍫, get her her favourite author- whatever it is, just put in some mental work.
- Make it original. Don’t just contract the entire date out to your more romantic friends; express yourself by yourself- in a hand written note 📝(no matter how little your poetry skills), with a simple love song (no matter how tone lost you are) or even with a simple kitchen meal 🥘(no matter how terrible your culinary skills)!
