What do you think of Valentine's Day? I mean, when you really stop to think about it, it is a good idea to let the marketing departments of card manufacturers and shops tell you when you should declare your undying love to someone? Seems kind of crazy, no?
To me, it seems so much more romantic for somone to write you a card or buy you a gift, spontaneously, just because they were thinking of you, than for them to make the very same gestures out of a sense of obligation on an officially designated date.
Ask yourself this: do you want to be a daredevil of love, a trailblazer? Or a robot? I'm guessing you're going to choose option A. So my advice is this: forget all about February 14th. If you're lucky enough to have someone you're crazy about, and they're crazy about you too, send them a card, or buy them a gift, now, today. Yes, today! Radical, hey? But sort of exciting.
If you already live with the person you love, and you want to jazz things up a little, why not send something to them at work? If you want to be lavish, have their favourite cake delivered to them at their desk, or an extravagant bunch of flowers. Or make them a beautiful card with a heartfelt note inside. Only you know the right gesture to make to the person you love best of all. But why wait until February to do it? Get onto it, this minute!
I'm a big fan of these nerdy quirky printable cards from Maquette:
