Valentines Day Gift Don'ts!
acknowledges Valentines Day, but if you are going to give
your lover something make sure it is appropriate!
doesn’t have to be commercialised and revolve around
flowers, cards and chocolates. However, it is day full of
romance and love so any gifts and special activities should
people have different ideas of the perfect romantic gift and
gesture, there are things that most lovers would not
appreciate as a valentines gift. Here are just a few…
Sending a card or gift with
the wrong name on it!
Exercise equipment – no
matter how well intentioned, it doesn’t send a romantic
message of “you are perfect as you are”
Household appliances – yes,
they are practical and maybe your lover needs them, but they
have absolutely nothing romantic about them! Save them for

who is highly allergic to them – you should know your

making some effort on the day. Don’t leave your partner with
nothing to say the next day when asked “what did you get for
Valentine’s Day?” At the least, make a card that expresses
your love and care.
