Regardless of whether you 'do' Valentine's Day, or rebuff the commercialism it is a day that is often associated with grand gestures, such as lavish gifts or expensive dinners.
While these things can be nice, it's important to remember that the most important aspect of Valentine's Day is spending quality time with the person - or people - you love.
There are many benefits to doing something together on Valentine's Day. For one thing, it allows you to connect in a meaningful way. When you spend time together, you have the opportunity to truly focus on each other and have meaningful conversations. This can help to strengthen your bond and deepen your relationship.
Doing an activity on Valentine's Day can also be a great way to show your partner that you care about them and value your relationship. It doesn't have to be something extravagant – the important thing is the time and effort you put into it.
In addition, doing something together on Valentine's Day can be a great opportunity to try something new together(!!) It can be a fun and exciting way to mix things up and keep your relationship fresh and exciting.
