Valentine's Day is for Couples
Ladies…don’t let the opportunity to spoil your man pass you by this Valentine’s Day! Most guys don’t expect anything on Valentine’s Day and usually make the holiday about their lady love. But, we learned by interviewing local guys (for the Comme Ca Section on page 21) that what will make them feel special is really simple. Here are a few ideas to show your man how much he means to you:
Heartfelt Card. Whether you write it yourself or take time choosing one that says what you couldn’t put into words—it will make him feel special.
Roses. He will never expect it and probably has never received any. One or three will make him feel important without going over the top with a dozen. Delivery service will impress him even more.
Couple’s massage. This is something relaxing and intimate you can both enjoy. Men like to be pampered too, especially if they have sore muscles from the gym.
Home Cooked Meal. If you normally aren’t the cook, cooking his favorite meal or going gourmet with some surf ‘n turf will make his belly and heart happy. Treating him to a night out of fine dining is nice as well but, can be a bit crowded on V-Day.
Time. The gift of one-on-one time, sans cell phones, kids and distractions is probably the best possible way you can show that special guy how much he means to you.
If you find yourself with a male companion this Valentine’s Day, enjoy him in all his glory. This holiday is about love and made especially for couples. He will appreciate the attention and his gift to you will be even more special as something you share rather than it being a one sided event.
