February 14 – the perfect time to show your special someone how much you love them! Did you know that, back in the day, Valentine’s was mostly geared to those who are single? The ultimate goal: to give people a chance to meet their soul mate.
Valentine’s Day has evolved over the years, so more people now see it as a time to express love for their significant other, their children, or their friends… and yet, we often forget that it’s also a great chance to show those around us how much they mean to us.
Are you short of inspiration for a way to show all the affection you feel for those around you? Here are a few simple ideas that are sure to touch the recipient’s heart.
- Happy times spent with people you care for are often captured through unforgettable photos. Print out one of these photos – choose one that reminds you of a good time you shared – and make it a gift for the person you care for, while reminding them how happy you are to have them as a friend after all this time.
- The best gift you can give your friends is… your time. Our lives are so busy today that, all too often, we tell those we care about that we should make time to see each other or that we don’t see each other often enough. Why not call your long-standing friends, calendar in hand, and FINALLY take the time to check your schedules so you can make a date to enjoy each other’s company?
- To sum it up, a simple little message can be much appreciated. And it can be as simple as sending them a little personalized text or email. If you have more time, you can create a small hand-made card. It’s the thought that counts!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
