Are you among countless couples for whom Valentine’s Day has become a routine that simply ticks off every one of the romantic holiday cliches because it’s become habit? The dozen or two red roses are nice while they last; the same goes for the box of gourmet chocolates or the bottle of nice wine to share. Valentine’s Day is all about remembering those you love and celebrating their importance in your life, so don’t let your loved ones get relegated to rote tasks you do to tick off a list. Instead, branch out and do something special to them just how important they are in your life.
It’s Not a Hallmark Holiday
Surprisingly, Valentine’s Day is not a relatively recent holiday dreamt up by advertisers to sell more goods. Valentine’s Day has been a day for couples to express their love for each other for centuries. It began with courtly love traditions of English and European literature in the 1300s and has evolved over time, but the essential elements of the holiday have remained pretty similar since the celebration began. At its most basic, Valentine’s Day is about celebrating your good fortune in finding the special person you are in love with. The traditions of sending cards, flowers, chocolates, and other gifts has been going on for centuries.
Break With Tradition
Just because cards and flowers have been tradition doesn’t mean you’re required to stick to those. If you find you’ve fallen into a rut and you’re purchasing Valentine’s Day gifts for your sweetheart out of rote habit, it’s definitely time to shake things up! This year, instead of the stereotypical heart-shaped box of chocolates and over-priced red roses, choose to give your sweetie a memorable experience instead. While you may want to still give flowers or a gift, a special night out at will create a more lasting memory that your loved one can hold onto for years to come.
