Do you exchange gifts on Valentine’s Day?

I have always loved Valentine’s Day–whether in a relationship or not, it’s a day to spread the love to those you love.  Of course having a sweetheart makes it sweeter, but I never pass up the chance to spread a little happiness to those I love–in the form of chocolates, albeit.

When I was younger, while other kids were getting new clothes or toys for V-Day, my Mom would always gift us with a special care package of our favourite chocolates and candies (and one time this peace necklace from Ardene that I was coveting so badly).  

Now that I’m older, and in a relationship, I love celebrating the day but my favourite gift to receive is…

…a heart-felt card.  I know that might sound cliché, but it’s a small but thoughtful gesture that goes a long way (okay, and a bag of my favourite chocolates doesn’t hurt either!).  

What about you?  Are you into exchanging gifts or simply spending quality time together?  Or perhaps you dislike the day altogether and can’t wait for Sunday?  I’d love to hear from you!
