I know it’s a silly comercialised day but really what’s wrong with celebrating love? Sharing some time with a loved one or buying a small trinket or some flowers. Feel like everyone hates it?

  • I have never been a big believer in only spending one day a year celebrating your loved one. My partner totally agrees with me and we make sure to let each other know every day that we love them.
    We never get each other presents but we do take it in turns to plan dinner. Last year we went on a picnic by the water, this year was our first one as parents. We went to the pub for dinner with our baby and my 13 year old sister came with us too, haha!

  • We do celebrate but only in little ways. I might buy a packet of heart shaped pasta for dinner or heart shaped biscuits to pop in my husband’s lunchbox. I usually make him a card too. Nothing expensive.

  • You do what you feel is right in your relationship. If you want to celebrate it then go ahead. Everyone does things differently.

  • I agree it is a commercialised day, however I like the reminder to take the time to make our loved ones feel special.

  • I’d love to mark it in a small way, but my husband is resistant.

  • We don’t celebrate it but I don’t think there is anything wrong with celebrating it apart from the logistics of trying to book things at the same time as everyone else.

  • Taking a moment to spend a bit of time together is important if possible.

  • We also use the day to try out a new restaurant and support local business and taste delicious new food!

  • It can be a cute little day but I agree that there seems to be much negativity around it. If people want to go over the top then let them and if not then keep your negativity to yourself. My husband and I don’t celebrate the day as such but we normally leave each other a small gift in the car seat, on his wallet etc. Just something small to let us know we’re thinking of each other.

  • We just share a small gift and that’s it. No need to go out for dinner or spend a lot of money either.

  • We celebrate it and do not think it is silly.
    Celebrating special days is good fun and is an opportunity to go out and have fun!

  • Nothing wrong with celebrating love indeed, whether you want to celebrate it on Valentines day or any other day !

  • I don’t hate it, but we have never celebrated it. We don’t need one designated day of the year to show we love each other, we appreciate each other every day, that may be why we have been together for over thirty years
