Valentine’s Day is a very special occasion designed to celebrate love and totally, completely f*** with our heads.
If you’re single, Valentine’s Day is a sad, sad reminder that you’re alone. You have to get the perfect gift and arrange the most romantic possible night.

A Gift Card To Their Favorite Store If you know which places your partner really loves (and this can include restaurants, tech stores, clothing stores, and more), you can just grab a gift card and literally make their day.
And when you’re not quite coupled up but not quite single, when you’re dating, or you’ve just met someone new, the looming presence of Valentine’s Day is absolute torture. Is it appropriate to buy stuff with hearts on if you haven’t said ‘I love you’ yet? What if they’re expecting a gift from you and you’ve done nothing?
