It’s your undivided attention!
Now, I know you’re thinking “But that sounds boring!”, but trust me, it’s the gift that keeps on giving. And the best part is, it’s super easy to give. All you have to do is put away your phone, make eye contact, ask questions, show empathy, and let your partner finish their thoughts. And if you want to make it more fun, try turning it into a game. See how many of these tips you can put into practice in one day.
And if you’re looking for some budget-friendly Valentine’s Day activities, why not have a game night, go stargazing or have a picnic? Even if it’s cold outside, you can always bundle up for a night under the stars and then have a cozy indoor picnic. The possibilities are endless!
