Valentine's Day is a February 14 celebration of love and affection.

After all, one should be giving gifts and romantic shows of affection to your girlfriend throughout the year and not just once a year because everyone else is. That said, there are ways to make Valentine's Day a special occasion for your girlfriend through the giving of a gift with extra romantic connotations and designs. Play with the symbolism of the day and the images it conjures up such as red hearts, doves, winged cupids and flowers. Consider writing a poem or a hand-written letter too as well as taking her out to the finest restaurant you know.
