It is reported that across the world, Valentine’s Day is one of the most commercially-vibrant days of the year.
Everything from houses to key-holders are bought and sold on this day. And so if you are a man, it is understandable if you feel a little pressured.
The fear of appearing cheap makes people spend outside their means. This becomes a problem when you’re not financially sound during the love season.
But do not feel left out because you can celebrate the occasion with your partner even if you are on a budget. Here’s what to do:
1. Prepare a meal for her.
Sometimes, they say it is not the volume of the gift but the thought that counts. Well-meaning people can appreciate good effort.
So why don’t you just stay at home and cook for your partner? It does not matter very much if you are not a good cook.
2. Send a hamper to her workplace.
Women love to let others know that they are in love. So they would not worry if you surprise them with a beautiful hamper at her workplace.
Hampers can be very expensive. But you do not need to go over and above to be loving.
3. Call into a radio or TV show and give her a shout out.
This is a bold move that is telling the whole world whom you are with. She will be glad that you are not shy to hide her.
It won’t cost you anything.
4. Propose marriage.
If you are ready, have been together long enough, and have the acceptance of family and friends, Valentine’s Day is a good day to propose.
You are not forced to do this with a 24-carat diamond ring. The point is, you are telling her you are ready to make your relationship forever.
