Whatever you do, don’t avoid talking about how you will spend the day simply because you are nervous about an awkward conversation.
Besides money, you also have to take into consideration the potential symbolism of what your gift will mean.
One of my good friends recently asked me for advice in a total panic.
She just started seeing someone a few weeks ago, and their relationship is so new, they don’t yet have a label for it.
Before we could even talk about our plans, or lack thereof, for the holiday, he planned a movie night with friends, invited me, and that was that.
A movie night was the perfect solution for our brand new relationship, but looking back, I can see how awkward it could have been to navigate Valentine’s Day as a newly dating couple.
