It’s that time of the year again for the hopeless romantics. Even if you don’t have a significant other (yet!), you can still celebrate Valentine’s Day with your best friend or better yet, your family.
3 Extraordinary Gift Ideas That Money Can’t Buy:
1. Undivided Attention
Constant connectivity has transformed how we interact with people. It has made long-distance relationships so much easier. Plus, there’s a comfort in knowing that your partner is just a text message away. However, devices make it harder to be mentally present, as they distract people and prevent them from being fully attentive.
The solution? Unplug.
Undivided attention shows that you respect your partner. It demonstrates that you think your loved one is worthy of your time. There’s nothing more intimate than eye contact and a heartfelt conversation, one that fosters growth and higher self-esteem.
When you are distracted, it’s impossible to communicate effectively. You may ask, “How was your day?” while glancing at your smartphone. The next thing you know, you’re no longer having a convo and failed to hear their response. That’s why it’s a good idea to disconnect from the things that take you away from the person in front of you.
2. Personalised Experiences
A study demonstrated that experiential gifts bring the most happiness. People get more enjoyment out of life experiences and consider them better use of money.
A personalised experience doesn’t have to be expensive. It can be as simple as watching an airshow together, enjoying the latest Rhapsody at Gardens by the Bay, or viewing the sunset while on a river cruise.
It doesn’t matter what activity you’re doing; what matters most is who you’re doing it with. Just make sure you’re not in a crowded place and that you’re carrying out preventive measures. Don’t forget the sanitiser!
3. A Trip Down Memory Lane
After winning relationship quiz night, how about a tour down memory lane, with a twist?
Here are four steps to do it:
- Prepare coloured cards, one for you and one for your loved one.
- Write the two most memorable places for both of you.
- Exchange notes on the day of your scheduled date.
- Make the trip down memory lane to the destinations you have chosen.
Relive romantic moments this February 14. Recreate the activities you both enjoy, or just chill while making new happy memories.
Perfect gifts don’t have to be plucked from a store shelf. They can simply be acts of love, wrapped in the warmest embrace and topped with squeaky kisses.
