I know, I know. Many of you think that Valentine's Day is an overrated, commercially exploitative, and materialistic occasion. It drains your pockets, and strains your relationships. Many women expect to be wooed and pampered with unrealistic spoils. Men often complain that Valentine's Day is a corporate conspiracy, hatched by capitalists to encourage people to spend after a lavish Christmas and New Year celebration.
It is perfectly ok to snub the store-bought items on Valentine's Day. After all, whoever said that a woman could be satisfied with one pair of diamond earrings? But don't give Valentine's Day a miss. Valentine's Day is a celebration of love, and love cannot be bought with a credit card.
This Valentine's Day, get creative. Instead of the usual store-bought greeting cards, make your own and scribble some cute Valentine's Day quotes. Don't bother buying those "couple" T-shirts; instead gift your sweetheart one of your T-shirts from your closet with a cute "I love you" quote engraved on it. When she misses you, she has your T-shirt for company. Instead of buying music CDs with romantic love songs, record your own voice on a CD and gift her your words of love. Nothing could be more romantic than love songs sung in your own voice.
Here are some Valentine's Day quotes to sprinkle love in your life:
