Valentine’s day is around the corner and almost every company is trying to endorse it’s product by making it the ‘one special gift for your valentine.’ Chocolates, jewellery, clothes, cars, diamonds, books, even tyre manufacturers call their new modal specially synthesized fine grip tyres to be that one dream gift your valentine is waiting for. And the advertisements also portray that if you do not turn up on this special day in your finest attire and with THE gift, you’re in for trouble.
Seriously, this is so ridiculous. And what is worse is when your good friends who totally agree with you on how pointless the whole thing is, run helter-skelter a week before the d day in search of THE gift for their valentine.
If you ask me, the best thing a man can give a woman is his undivided attention. Nothing like spending a whole day together with no family, friends, work and phone calls to interfere. Forget gifts and surprises. Just quality time spent together.
