Post for Guys : How to Celebrate Valentine’s Day Within Budget

Valentine’s day..!! Day to celebrate love.. Umm this sentence sounds odd. Know? Love should be celebrated every single day.. Every single moment..! Anyway, let me put it this way, day which is specific to celebrate romantic love and appriciate your partner.

Girls must be already ready with their gifts wrapped. But I am sure guys must be still ‘consulting’ their single male / female friends about ‘what to gift to his girl?’. Well, this post is for those confused guys plus, who are broke and need ‘plans’ within budget..!!

Movie Marathon with Bucket of Popcorn:

Get those popcorn packets which you can cook at home. Prepare them (Oh you don’t need any chef skills to prepare them. ‘How to cook’ is mentioned on the pack and we loveeee popcorn). Watch movies with your bae in a cozy setup. Romantic + budget friendly.

Cook Together:

Studies say that couple who cook together stay together (Ok, ok, I cooked that up). But it’s fun to bond over cooking food. Isn’t it??
Your Own Theatre:

You need a projector and a white cloth to work it as a screen. Umm a clean blank wall would also do for that matter. Borrow a projector and play her favorite movies (which you can also watch) to make her smile.

Switch off Your Phone:

Girls hate when they don’t get enough attention. Especially when her guy is right in front of her and he seems to be more interested in his phone rather than in her. So please put your phone in silent mode on the ‘V Day’ to make some beautiful memories.

Bhool jao (Forget it) most of the male population is not good at it..! So let’s strikeout this.

Take her Out for A Long Drive/ Ride:

1
All you need is a vehicle and fuel. Take her out. All girls love this. Plus make sure you play some nice romantic music. If you are taking for a ride, play songs on your mobile..!!

Love letter:

Oh please don’t start with I am not good at it. Let me tell you who can help you with that skill – Google. Google some best love letters. Pick lines here and there and make your one letter. I know you must be thinking why can’t I copy entire letter. No you can’t. Be an original copier yaar.

PS : Don’t forget to change the names..!!!

Food:

Young couple eating together at home
I know, going out for dinner is burning your pocket. Waiting line is different problem. Instead order online. You have so many food delivering apps which will provide so many coupons. Order them and feed your girl her favorite food. Score some brownie points.
Go for A Walk Together:

oooo
Walk, hand in hand. Her brain will be busy thinking that you are being super romantic and never bothers to think about the fact that you are being economic. Umm may be a walk near a mountain? It’s romantic anddd it’s away from shopping malls.

Turn On the Music and Dance:

lll
Pubs are expensive, dance floors will be full. Instead, turn on the music at home and start dancing along with the love of your life. I am pretty sure you guys will have gala time. If you are good at dancing, she will appreciate you for that. If not, she will have good laughter and appreciate you for your efforts.

Ok so these were the things I could think of. Which did not involve shopping/ travelling/ dining at a posh restaurant. Basically very budget friendly one. Hope you find it useful to celebrate V day.

No matter how you celebrate, don’t forget to love and appriciate your partner for all the things they do. Express what they mean to you. I am sure that will definietly brighten up her face and your day.

Kindly Read This Before Getting/ Gifting A Pet

Valentine’s day is just around the corner. People who are in relationships are already planning to celebrate the day of love. They might have already planned the gifts for their partner. You might be wondering how this post is relevant with valentine’s day. It is. Let me tell you how.

I have come across lot of cases where boy has gifted a pet (mostly puppies) to his girl. Who was very happy to accept as puppies are the cutest. But somehow failed to realize that she is accepting a living being and it is a new life time commitment she is opting for. Somehow she fails to take care of the puppy and puppy ends up being in some adoption center. In fact this is also fine because the puppy still has a chance to get a forever home. Some ‘gifts’ end up in roads, some succumb to death because of the negligence.

I am NOT saying gifting a pet is a bad idea. But kindly go through some of the points below to decide whether it a wise choice for you and the one whom you are gifting to.

By the way, if you are not aware, I am a mother of 2 four legged kids. This is absolutely out of my own experience. These are the main points I could think of right now. Read on.

They are Babies, like literally:

untitled
You know human babies yet times cry in the middle of the night due to any discomfort or if they are hungry. So does pets. They whine when they feel hungry or they are missing their biological mamma. Yes they do. You need to be patient, loving and caring enough to wake up and feed them, comfort them. Even if it is in the middle of the night or early morning. I was a lazy girl who used to watch sunrise once in a blue moon. But now, my kids make sure I wake up early (read it as when they want me to wake up). #touchwood.

You need to be patient:

You need to be patient if they pee on your expensive sofa/ cloth. You need to be patient when they chew your favorite footwear. Do not beat them when they make noise in the middle of the night and wake you up from your deep sleep. That’s their way of communicating. Just try and understand.

They Eat:

qq
They look cute and also they need food at regular intervals. Some breed or some pets need particular diet to sustain. Make sure you follow that.

They Poop:

rr
Yes they do. Like any living being who eats, poops. Pets do too. Make sure you are ready to clean it. Especially if are planning to get guinea pig because they look cute as button, be ready to clean tons of poop and gallons of pee. #Experienced. Also after a while you get so used to it that for example, my nose has stopped sensing the smell of their poop or pee.

PS : If you thinking fishes are of low maintenance. Let me tell you, you need to regularly change the water else you know the consequence. 😦

They feel cold/ hot too:

lll
I see some people keeping their pets tied up outside home with no roof on top, no bed to sleep on. I wish I could punch those monsters and rescue those pets. It is very simple. They have skin, they are living beings (please don’t mind me using this word n times. Because most of the people out there don’t behave like they know this fact that pets are living beings.) they feel the climatic changes, just like we do. Do you know, dog’s nose becomes dry just like our skin during winter??? They need warmth, they need cooler when they are hot. I bought cooler for my kids. I know I am a good mom. Thanks to my mom who thought me these values. #touchwood.

They fall sick:

eeYes they do fall sick yet times. You need to be extra loving to comfort them so that they recover quickly. Plus, do not forget the cleanings you have to do. Oh come on, don’t make faces. It is common across all living beings.

They need regular vaccinations:

tt
Yes you need to spend money on vaccinations on regular basis. Theses vaccinations are essentials and should be timely enough to protect your kid from diseases.

They need grooming:

ttttt
Some breeds of dogs, cats need grooming on regular basis. You need to spend money and time on it in order to keep them look neat and healthy.

They need love:

ffff
Pets do not ask for your bank statement, your money, job, vacation, shopping any materialistic things. Alllll they need is your time, love and care. Some pets, especially dogs go into depression if you neglect them.

They Need Attention:

hh

Especially if you are getting a dog, make sure there is someone at home all the time. Because most of the dogs get depressed and cry if they are left alone. This might annoy some of the people near you live.

Need a backup when you are not around:

tttttttYou need to make sure there is someone to look after your kids while you are out of station. After all they are not soft toys to lock in the cupboard while going out. Know?

You must be thinking, is it really worth ‘investing’ so much??? Answer is Absofuckinglutely YES.

I have seen a lot of people through my life. But I never found true and selfless love as an animal. They have absolutely no expectations in return. All they need is you, your time, love. At the end of the day, they don’t question about how your day was. All they do is your day better by their love. It is a nice feeling to know that there is someone who is waiting for you back home and is literally happy to see you again. Especially a dog, their jumping, screaming when you reach home is absolutely precious. They make you feel loved, special.

gggggg

No matter how you look, what your skin color is, what your religion is, what your economic status is, whether you are single, divorced, handicapped anything… In the eyes of your pets, you are perfect. You are nothing less than angel (especially a dog. For cats, the attitude is slightly different. I remembered the joke I had read the other day. Check it out below)

dd

Animals are blessings to the mankind. In the fast-pace of life where people re drawn towards materialistic world, pets are the reminder of what true love and life are.But remember pets are part of life for you. But for them, their master is their ONLY life. Make sure it is a good one.

If you are ok with these for the rest of the life, get a pet. It’s a commitment. If you leave your partner, I am sure he will move on and get a new partner. If you leave your pet, it’s really hard for them to move on. There are many cases where they die because of heart break. So think before you get a pet because it’s a silent commitment.

If you are not Ok with even a single point mentioned above, then please please do not get one. Be happy with a soft toy, because they don’t need any of these care, plus they are cute too.!! 🙂

What is True Love According to You???

Valentine’s day haan…?? A day of celebration of most precious feeling – love…

What is love according to you…???

Updating social media with love quotes, pictures with your partner and using hash tags like #sweetheart #loveher #lovehim na.. no…

Going to posh restaurants to dine, na.

The great lovers like Romeo-Juliet, Heer-Ranja , Salim-Anarkali etc didn’t even had a social media account to ‘publish’ their love. They didn’t had Instagram to use the hash tags for their #truelove. But till date they and their love still remains with us. why??? Because of the purity… because of loyalty… Because of the commitment… so much so that they died for the sake of that one pure feeling called love. Which our ‘Tinder’ generation hardly understands.

For me,

Love is not only a beautiful feeling… It’s mutual admiration, care and respect…

Love is commitment… Commitment to be by each other’s side till death makes us apart…

Love is a promise… I’m not talking about promise to take care of each others hearts… Na… We are humans. We tend to make mistakes. Despite these mistakes and heart breaks, a promise that we will forgive each other’s mistakes and never leave each other alone.

A promise that we will bring smiles on each other’s faces when either of them needs one.

A respect… A respect to partner and the relationship. Respect by not hesitating to shout out loud to the world that he or she is yours. Giving them respect and making sure they are respected and treated well by others too.

Love is friendship. You can hurt your lover, you can get bored by them. But friendship, na you neither hurt them nor you get bored.

Love is growing old together….

I really feel love is where my soul can be at peace. It’s a home for my soul. Where I can be what I am… Without having to be afraid of getting judged.

I know you must be thinking that I’m being unrealistic or impractical. Sometimes, even I laugh at myself. I laugh because of my Hopeless hope for that one true love. When I almost give up on my beliefs, I always end up reading or meeting some couples who  make me believe that love still exists.

I have seen old couple, who died with a time gap of a day or so. I mean can you imagine how much the thought of living without him or her was so strong. That passion is priceless. Passion to stay loyal.

When we are talking about love, there are also people worth mentioning about. People who end their lives because of love failures, for rejections. Phewww… If the other person does not accepts your love, doesn’t admire you.. I don’t think there is any point in wasting time and definitely not wasting your life. I know rejection hurts. Cry. Even though tears are precious but it’s Ok to shed them once in a while to make our heart feel lighter. But don’t stop your heart because you felt that rejection pain. Never.

Technically, the one who rejected you lost someone who loved. You lost someone you loved and someone who didn’t love you back. So frankly, you didn’t lose much. Oh come on, we love celebrities. They don’t even know that we exist. Still we don’t kill ourselves right… Why to make someone feel like a celebrity that too when they reject you.

Always remember we can’t force someone to love us. When the time is right, right person will come to your life and stay. You will finally find happiness and feel loved. Wait for it. Because when it happens you will feel the wait was worth it.

Love is giving. When you are truly in love, trust me at the end of the day only thing you want is the one you love to be safe and happy. Don’t agree??? Why the love of parents is considered as one of the purest forms of love??? Because they just love us… Make sure that we are safe and happy. They don’t really expect anything in return. That’s why.

Being an animal lover, I have to give you one more example by mentioning the most loyal animal, dog. You all know dog is the most loyal animal. He loves you more than he loves himself. A dog loves you. He ONLY knows to love and protect you. Even if you feed him or don’t, love him or not. Once he considers you as his master, he will never stops loving you. If he finds any danger, dog will always face it in order to protect you. Can anyone beat this kind of love..???

This valentine, be a donor of love… Not a beggar…. Love without expectation… Trust me, universe will make sure much more love comes your way…

 

Gifting Ideas For Your Special Someone

Ahhh February… The month of love… Flowers and hearts everywhere…!!!

While most of the committed gals out there already ready with their presents for their valentine, Im pretty sure most of the boys must be discussing with their friends about what gift to give to their gals. Because they think that’s the toughest call to make. Well, picking a gift for a guy is not an easy task either.

If you feel Red roses, chocolates, teddy bears are now old and boring gifts… Here are some of the ideas that might help you to ease your task of choosing a gift for your special someone for this valentine…

Show piece

There are so many cute little show pieces available in the market. Especially this valentine season, almost all gift stores get flooded with these show pieces of tiny cute angels, couples etc which make a perfect gift for your gal if she loves cute things andddd you guys are just in initial phase of your relationship. Because, as the time passes, our expectations do increase. I’m not talking about expensive things but ummm let it be its complicated. Let’s just focus on gifts.

Gals, don’t even think of gifting these cute angels and stuff to your guy. Reason??? It’s girly…!!!

Lone time

How about a long drive… Dinner at a cozy place. It should not be an expensive restaurant, even your house makes a perfect cozy place. Point is the lone time with your special someone. Anddd extra brownie points if you switch off your mobiles.

Books

Does your partner love reading books…??? You know what will make him/her happy… Do check the taste of books and get one for your partner to make their day special…

Cook

Don’t worry about the taste, your valentine will love even if you serve bread and jam with tons of love. If they are not happy with your love and effort, dude you please think twice before celebrating valentine’s with the same valentine the next year.

Make up lover gal

You got to check this list to pick one for her.

Customized gifts

There are many options in this category. No matter how your gal is, she will melt by looking at a customized gift with you and her pictures in it. I know it sounds cheesy but we love such gestures.

Hand written letter

Come on… Old is gold… I really feel nothing is more sweeter than a hand written letter. Pen down your feelings (good ones only) on a piece of paper. You don’t have to necessarily decorate it with girly stuffs. Just hand it over to her. Don’t miss her reactions while she reads your letter.

Gals, we should make guys feel loved too. There is no rule that only guys should write letters. Get a pen and piece of paper, write down good things about your partner to make them feel loved.

Shirts, watches, dress, bags

If you want to be a boring one, do present these to your lover. If your partner really needs one, then no offense.

Electronic gadgets

I think gifts for gals comes in all budgets. But for boys it’s usually on costlier side. But if your man is worth it, spend good amount and get that gadget for him which will make him happier.

Some gals are crazy for gadgets too. You know what to buy for her in that case.

Video games

Which guy doesn’t like video games??? Gifting a video game set will bring a huge smile on his face for sure.

If your gal loves playing video games too… Gift her one. Which you can share it later.

Dinner

Most of the gals love that special dinner with her special person. Candles will earn you more points if you are planning for a dinner.

Some men have confessed that they like their gal to take them out for a dinner for a day. Kind of role reversal. It’s Ok even a hulk needs some pampering sometimes.

Spa coupons

Both gift each other a luxurious spa coupons and enjoy a relaxing spa session.

Hope this helps…

If your partner loves you, he/she doesn’t really care about the amount of money you are spending. They only care for the effort you are making to make them feel special. Because at the end of the day, efforts and love makes you look se*ier than your body…. 🤗
