Plan or don’t plan ahead of time: The nice thing about Valentines day is its a holiday that is totally directed by the people celebrating. I would recommend having a conversation about how you want to spend the day before it rolls around. If you are both really busy, have a chat beforehand that you want to keep it low key and celebrate by buying sale chocolate in bulk the next day. If you would love to take the day as an excuse to plan a much needed date night, go as big as you want!
Decide on gift budget: Unlike other holidays where you might have a general idea on what you both plan to spend, Valentines Day is once again what you make it. Have a chat before-hand on the type of gifts you’re thinking about getting each other, or if you even want to do gifts at all.
Pick something they wouldn’t buy for themselves: This rule can really be applied to gift giving in general. When picking out a gift, treat the person you’re shopping for to something they would want, but probably wouldn’t purchase on their own. A birch box subscription, latte maker, and joggers are great alternatives to old spice, a coffee mate coffee maker, and the usual pair of everyday jeans!
