Valentine's Day Isn't Just For Lovers
Valentine's Day has long been equated to romance, chocolates, flowers and all things hearts, but in present times, it's really a great occasion to show your appreciation to others beyond lovers: family, friends, employees, clients, professional partners, residents-- if they add good to your life, they all deserve to be shown some love!
Whether you own a business or have a job, seize the opportunity to make a lasting impression on your clients and colleagues with an act of thoughtfulness. Giving gifts for Valentine's Day can have a greater impact than during the holidays because they aren't "expected." Recipients will be moved by your unexpected act of thoughtfulness on this occasion, especially if they're coping with the loss of a loved one too. Gifts can be tangible, an experience or even a donation to a cause they care about-- it's the thoughtfulness behind it that strengthens relationships. Whatever you do, give from a place of authenticity and a genuine desire to show your appreciation and they'll be sure to feel your kind heart this Valentine's Day.
