Valentine's Day is just around the corner. And as a formerly single person, I absolutely used to dread this day.
Watching couples brag about their anniversaries or relationship milestones was enough for me to suffer through on social media. But a whole holiday just dedicated to couples? I mean, come on!
But now, I'm in a relationship, and now, I'm dreading trying to figure out what kind of gift to get my boyfriend. We've been dating for a little less than a year and just became Facebook official.
So I started asking around about the best gift to get him.
I suggested renting a plane to write, “I love you. Don't worry; you don't have to say it back. I just want to tell you how I feel!” in the clouds, but my mom told me that might be too much. (Also, it would have cost me at least three paychecks.)
Then, I had the idea that something more practical would be a little better.
I asked my co-worker what he thought about getting my boyfriend socks. But he told me that's what grandmas get their grandchildren (which is not the vibe I wanted to give off), so I'm back to square one.
Finally, after talking to many different friends, co-workers and family members, we came up with a comprehensive guide on how much couples should spend on each other for Valentine's Day, based on their relationship status.
Now, you don't have to spend hours and hours Googling, “My boyfriend and I just moved in. What do I get him for Valentine's Day?!!?! Help, Google!”
We've got you covered from the stage where you're just hooking up all the way to your first Valentine's Day as a married couple.
