To find your love language(s), visit https://www.5lovelanguages.com/
1. Words of Affirmation
Does your partner prefer words from the heart? Write them a letter telling them how amazing they are and why you love them! Fill a small jar with strips of paper detailing all the things they’ve done that you’re proud of. Buy them gifts with inspirational quotes or words of encouragement. Word art is available nearly everywhere at any price range!
2. Acts of Service
If your love has been feeling overwhelmed lately, or is bogged down by all the tasks they have on their plate, see if you can help lighten the load. Hire a local cleaning service like Maid Valet (229-469-4229) to give the house (or even just one troublesome room) a good scrub-down. Cook an extravagant dinner for them to come home to after a long day. Make coupons of different tasks you’re willing to do for them, that they can turn in at any time. They’ll appreciate it!
3. Receiving Gifts
Valentine’s Day is the best time for anyone whose love language includes gift-giving and receiving! What’s something your partner has been eyeing for a long time, but hasn’t had the money for? Splurge on that item, or shower them in several small items! Chocolates, jewelry, flowers….it’s all fair game.
4. Quality Time
This love language is great for couples with tight budgets who still want to do something special for Valentine’s Day. Carve some time for just you and your love to hang out, talk, and enjoy each other’s company. Maybe you binge-watch the latest season of their favorite show or take a walk outdoors. If you have a little bit of extra dough, plan a day trip out of town and go window shopping or visit someplace you haven’t been to yet.
5. Physical Touch
This one is easy because it can be incorporated into any gift-gifting that you do this Valentine’s Day! If your partner is touchy, validate their affection by holding their hand during dinner, or being extra snuggly while watching tv. Give them a deep-tissue back massage as a gift all on its own! Just showing them that you value their physical presence will go a long way, no matter what actual gifts you give.
