People are fond of giving gifts for any occasion, but one occasion so dear to us-valentine's day-seems misinterpreted by many, they thought it is only for lovers, but it is supposed to be the special day for all loved ones. Are you thinking to give gifts to your friends in this special day?

I feel like Valentine's Day is for lovers, not loved ones. Everything about it screams romance. I don't give gifts to my friends on Valentine's Day. And I've never had a date or boyfriend for it, so I haven't had to get a romantic gift either.

Well my step daughter was telling me before her Mom usually cooks like Christmas for everyone, cause last year we just went out and have dinner, but because of what she said, I said this is different, it's not the gifts she's sharing it's giving her all love one appreciation, and her love not only to her children, me but for everyone. Showing love, and also touching the hearts of everyone who is close to her and saying thank you for being with. Have a nice day to you! God bless!

If I'd like to give something for my friends maybe I like it to be original and would like the beauty of flowers to last longer.....consider giving a beautiful pot of flowers for the occasion that can be replanted and appreciated for a very long,long time. It is the thought of giving that truly counts, not the gift itself. Happy mylotting!

Last year I bought Valentines Day gifts for my kids (just a couple of mugs filled with candies). Now that I have set the precedent, they are expecting something again this year. My 7-year-old daughter is seriously concerned that people in our neighbourhood haven't taken down their Christmas lights yet. Valentine's day is coming soon and nobody has their Valentines decorations up yet! She understands that Valentines Day is not a big holiday, and that we don't exchange gifts like we do at Christmas. But it is a holiday about love, and that is certainly a good reason to celebrate. Why not do something special for those closest to you? Life is all about celebrating the little moments. Even the smallest gift can make a big impact (obviously my gift last year made an impression!)and everyone needs to feel loved and appreciated.

yea, of course. Definitely one has to give and receive gifts on valentine's day. Eventhough I know its all the hype created by hallmark and other gift card companies, its the good feeling that u get when someone gives u a gift.
