2. Keep their personality in mind: Before going for that gift, which you think will be perfect, ask yourself will this suits their personality. The gift being unique is not the only thing, it should suit and keep up with his/her personality.
3.

The hard work and zeal will definitely pay off, that is your partner will appreciate your gesture, and who knows might reward you in their own way which you will appreciate.
7. Budget: Valentine’s day is the day of love. This is the day where you show and express your inner feelings to your beau. That doesn't mean that you will go out of budget.
