A friendly reminder, Saint Valentine's Day is February 14th. Guys, if you're involved in a serious relationship that you wish to continue, or dating with the intent of developing a relationship, it is important to acknowledge Valentine's Day. Take the time to select a meaningful card, don't just grab the first one on the rack; also, make sure to write a personal message when you sign your name. Even better, make your own card! In addition to a card, you may want to surprise your loved one with a special gift. You don't have to spend a lot of money, but do put some thought into your gift. Gals, remember your guy likes to be remembered too! Start with these suggestions:
  • ROSES are a traditional way to express how special your Valentine is.
  • Chocolates in heart shaped boxes (but only if your partner is not dieting).
  • Home baked cookies or brownies are a thoughtful idea, but once again not for the dieters!
  • Concert or theatre tickets. Check the weekly "What's Happening" listings, entertainment guide or calendar pages of your local newspaper.
  • Dinner reservations. Make sure to call ahead! Valentine's Day is one of the busiest restaurant nights. Even busier when it falls on the weekend.
  • Rather stay in? Select a bottle of wine or champagne and light the fireplace.
  • Stuffed animals. Who can resist a cuddly teddy bear with a big red bow?
  • A big bouquet of red balloons is a nice alternative to roses if your date has flower allergies.
  • Perfume, cologne, or bath products to keep your special someone smelling nice.
  • Jewelry, massage oils and lingerie are most appropriate for those in a serious relationship.
  • A romantic get away from the snowy cold winter weather...

    Note for the gentlemen: Although you may think that power tools make a great gift, no matter how desparately needed, household appliances are never received as romantic gifts!
