Did you know there are five love languages? From one partner to another, there is more than one way to say “I love you”. While some are fond of small touches and hugs, others prefer to spend quality time with the loved one or show their love with gifts.
With Valentine's Day fast approaching, here are five ways to show your affection, whether you're in a relationship or not. Because beyond spoiling your significant other, it's just as important to spoil yourself, isn't it?
1. Words of appreciation
Receiving a compliment always warms the heart. For some, being encouraged and appreciated through words like "I love you" or "I believe in you" means a lot.
Why not take the opportunity to write a sweet note on a Pero creation, say a cup? Every morning, while enjoying his coffee, your partner will have the pleasure of reading what you have written to him, without it ever losing its meaning. It's a unique way to tell him what you appreciate the most about this person.
2. Quality time
Quality time is a time when you have the other person's full attention and are fully present, free from distractions. Whether it's sharing a drink on a Friday evening, cooking a good dinner or taking a bubble bath, all the ways are good to appreciate the presence of the other. These moments are precious, since they create memories that remain etched in time.
Holidays like Valentine's Day are a time for exchanging gifts, but surprises shouldn't just be reserved for special occasions. The monetary value does not matter, it is rather the intention and the symbolism of the gift that count. Beyond a material gift, an experience, such as a night in a cabin or a gourmet dinner, is another way to please your loved one.
4. Services rendered
We all appreciate from time to time when our partner offers us a holiday from the dishes or takes care of the cleaning while we are exhausted from our week. These gestures may seem ordinary, but they are infinitely appreciated when they are unexpected.
A gift idea that costs nothing: coupons that can be exchanged for services, to be used whenever they want (for example: a coupon to be exchanged for breakfast in bed).
5. Physical Touch
Finally, a massage, a hug or a kiss are all the more ways to express our love spontaneously. What could be better than finding yourself in the arms of the person you love after a long day, taking a walk holding hands or sleeping glued to a big cozy bed?
In short, here is more than one way to please your favorite person, whether for Valentine's Day or any other day of the year!
And you, what is your favorite love language?
