Valentine’s Day, celebrated annually on February 14, is considered as a time for hearts, candy, flowers, and various gifts.
For some people, Valentine’s Day is an opportunity to buy flowers or candy for your loved one. But to others, Valentine’s Day is about expressing your innermost feelings about that special someone.
Saying What You Mean
Have your message: What is it you’re trying to say? If it’s a significant other, it might be that you want them to know how much you love spending time together. If it’s a crush from afar, maybe you’d like them to know that you’d love to get to know them better. In any case, if you’re looking to “say what you mean” as a part of your Valentine’s Day present, it’s necessary to know what you’d like to say.
Pair your gift with your message: Beyond merely selecting the gift, ensuring that it matches whatever message you’d like to get across is the greatest obstacle to giving gifts that say what you mean.
Convey your message–carefully: While the gift itself should say quite a bit, “saying what you mean” will most likely take place in the details, such as in an attached card.
See it through: The final and most obvious step is to simply give the gift. In classic style, try not to make a big deal out of it. Demure and deny when it comes to questions like “how did you think of this?” or “how did you know I wanted this?” This is the greatest pleasure in a gift well-gifted; take time to assure them it was “no trouble,” or that “it just came to you.”
