The Best Valentine's Day Ideas
For anyone that celebrates Valentine's Day, we all know how hard it is to find a great Valentine's Day idea that will really put a smile on your partner's / date's / crushes face!
So I've created this Squidoo to give you some inspiration because I myself, know just how difficult it can be to find the right way to celebrate the 14th Feb with that extra special person!
I think what makes it so tough is that amount of pressure that has been forced onto us by society and the media. For example, as soon as Christmas ends, the TV ads come on focusing on romantic gift ideas. And as more and more people spend large quantities of money on their dates for each Valentine's Day that goes by, the expectation on the future days increases even further!
Another problem is knowing exactly what your friends are buying their significant others. This can often be intimidating as they can spend much more than you do - and it could be a huge worry that your partner will see your gifts as being particularly insignificant next to yours. Trust me, I've learnt this the hard way!!
Having said that, I would strongly encourage anyone looking for the perfect Valentine's Day ideas to really not worry about that. Focus on your dates passion. What do they like? It's sometimes the things that the majority of the world would see as really simple, but to the individual, it would be the greatest thing on earth!
So forget about expectations, and put yourself in their shoes. How would they like to spend this special day and what would they most like to receive?
