Valentines day Ideas

Valentines Day


Valentine’s day is nearing, have you found the present for the one you love? Should you buy any present at all? Getting the perfect present or capturing the perfect moment is what most people want to achieve. What is the ideal date to you? Does it include going outside or staying indoors cuddling? Do guys also expect to receive a gift? These are some of the questions that I have asked my peers. The answers were relatively very similar to each other. Many of the women answered that they didn’t want the traditional Valentines presents given to them. They would much rather have a good experience or something from their significant other. It was said that the flowers would die and the chocolate would be eaten, with only the bear being left to remember. Sure the bears are cute gestures, but what’s really important is to create a beautiful moment, a vivid memory which they can keep. So when going out shopping this Valentine keep in mind that what people are craving is thought and affection not an expensive gift. People often feel that the more you spend on something the more someone will love you for it but that not actually the case.



Feeling that the most important and valuable present is by far, the the company of their significant other. Most students  said that they felt very strongly about giving the guys presents as well, that they too should feel appreciated. Strangely, however, the men that we would interview said that they didn’t really want presents,both genders feeling that the material presents were not important. The main difference was the answer whether the male should pay if they were to go out or the woman. Most females  answered that they wanted to pay for their own part, but the males answered that they would much rather have the women allow them to pay for the experience.
