Roses are red, violets are blue and this poem has been overused. With Valentine’s Day coming up, people will be looking for the perfect sentiment to express their feelings for that special someone.
Stores will be selling flowers, candy and anything shaped like a heart. For many consumers, these may seem like key ingredients to a perfect Valentine’s Day.
However, going the stereotypical route doesn’t have to be your only option this year.
With the growing popularity of ecards and Valentine memes, it is easy to tailor a message for your significant other. You can find everything from “Star Wars” to “How I Met Your Mother” Valentines through a simple Internet search.
This way, you can send a personalized Valentine that fits the other person’s interests. There are also multiple ways to deliver these messages.
To make a public statement, post one of these images on your friend’s Facebook wall. If you are anything like me and have a habit of waiting ‘til the last minute, this might be the solution for you.
If you prefer a more personal approach, print the image out and turn it into a card. Deliver it in person or tape it to their door anonymously.
Because these Valentines require no investment other than a moment of your time, you can send them to as many people as you want. Send these to your friends, family or significant other.
Valentine’s Day has a bad reputation of being reserved for couples, but it does not have to be this way. It’s not just about romance; it’s about showing someone that you care.
Whether you decide to get creative or go the traditional route, you have the ability to make someone’s day. The point is, there are many ways to celebrate this Valentine’s Day, but you are not limited to what you can find in a store.
