The years—or decades—have gone by, but the two of you are in more in love than ever. Make this Valentine’s Day the best you’ve ever celebrated together with these gift-giving tips from the experts.
Relationship Status: Together Forever
“Valentine’s Day is an opportunity to renew or strengthen your connection to your significant other, no matter how long you’ve been a couple,” says Aileen Avery, author of Gift Rap: The History and Art of Gift Giving. In other words, it’s important to keep the passion alive and not to get stuck in habits that might stifle romance.
If you’re hitting a major milestone together, consider giving a big-ticket item to commemorate the event, such as a piece of jewelry or a longed-for gadget.
Or take advantage of Valentine’s Day to book a night just for the two of you and try re-enacting your first date. (And no, the kids aren’t coming along. Call the babysitter in advance for this popular night out.) Reliving a romantic moment from when the relationship was still fresh and new can strengthen your sense of connection. If the first date is too hard to recreate, consider choosing another important milestone — such as the location of your proposal.
Treat this Valentine’s Day like it’s the first you’ve ever spent together, with inspired gift ideas for your long-time sweetheart from GiftNow!
