It’s only four more days until Valentine’s Day and many people are still looking for that thoughtful gift that will show that special someone just how much they care.
You want it to be something more than the usual flowers, chocolate or Hallmark cards. Or perhaps you want to give something in addition to those traditional gifts. Time is short and finances are even tighter.
Sound familiar? You are not alone.
Here’s my suggestion, and one that will be one of the most inexpensive and yet most memorable of all.
But first, consider the answer to this question.
In what ways has this person really made a difference in your life?
For the moment, make short bullet point responses to this question.
Next, take out a sheet of paper and start writing a letter to that person expressing your heartfelt gratitude for these specific contributions to your life. It matters not whether your letter is one, two or more pages. Writing it out is what matters most.
Others have told me that it rarely takes an hour to write. And even today only 46 cents if you have to mail.
So for anyone struggling with finding that one, extra special Valentine’s Day gift – don’t look in the stores, or online. It’s all inside and just waiting for you to tap into it.
Not only will the recipient be touched to receive it but you will never have any regrets in the future for things you might have left said.
