Even though many commemorations have been commercialised I do still value the underlying concept of expressing our appreciation to important people in our lives.
It need not be expensive or cost anything at all. In fact, research has shown that experiences rather than items boost our mood more.
One way to express your appreciation in a way that is meaningful to your romantic interest is to give a gift of their love language as I’ve written about for Christmas.
Especially in new-ish relationships, one of my favourite ideas is to organise a home-cooked meal or low-cost picnic and ask each other these 36 questions, which have been shown to enhance closeness.

Wishing you a magical and memorable experience with your Valentine!
