Don't think for one minute I don't like getting presents, I love receiving gifts. I especially love the unexpected ones. A hug from behind with, "I Love You," whispered in your ear, that's romantic. To me, that is a great present. Any present from the heart sets itself apart from a bought one.
A present from the heart...
Write something even though you don't think you're creative.
Sing something even though you can't hold a tune.
Cook something even though you're not sure how to turn on the oven...just don't burn the house down!
Put on a slow song, grab your partner, and just dance...slowly.
So if you are incapable of the giving of yourself go ahead and buy the same ole present, or buy a romance novel. I suggest Robyn Carr, Jill Shalvis, or Kristan Higgins. They are very capable of restoring the romance!
Am I in the minority in the gift receiving mind-set? Do you want glam gifts, or is something created by your loved one just as special? What's the best Valentine's gift you have received?
P.S. Tune in for a special blog tomorrow. It will be a Valentine's Day blog like you've never seen!
