With Valentine’s Day is today and with the daily grind of being a police officer, firefighter, paramedic, or the like; we sometimes put this special d ay on the backburner. Here are three simple tips that don’t take a lot of effort but go a long way for your special someone:
I. The Little Things
Valentine’s Day is a chance for you to switch up the routine and show your special someone that you care. Don’t spend hundreds on roses and chocolates – it’s the small sentimental gestures that mean the most. Write a short love note and hide it where you know they’ll see it. Or try gift wrapping a wishbone with a note that says, “I wish you were here.”
II. Switch Up Your Routine
When you get home from a long shift, don’t just walk into the house the way you always do. Pause on the porch; ring the doorbell; and greet your honey with a red rose and bottle of champagne. A greeting like this will surely make you both smile.
III. The Best Romantic Present is Your Own Presence
Ask your significant other out on a date this Valentine’s Day. A small gesture like this goes a long way. Make a reservation at your favorite restaurant or simply stay home and unplug the TV. It’s about time you both spent some quality time together; you both deserve it.
The unasked-for gift is most appreciated and the surprise gift is most cherished .
