I believe that the ways of showing you love someone is not measured by material things nor by how much money you have spent on it... it's truly the thought that counts behind it that should matter. I may not have gotten a new fancy car, nor glamoury, glittery, expensive things (not saying that it's wrong if you have gotten these - it's just not what I value in life)
My husband got me a Vera Wang perfume which shows me that he listens to me. We were in the store one day and sprayed it on and mentioned that I love the scent but didn't buy it, and this was over 2 months ago! He gave me kitkats because it's my favorite and it's my picker-upper when I have a rough day. He also got me an addition to my Pandora bracelet, a Pandabear charm, to remind me of him because he is my Pandabear. All these were simple things that he put some thought into, which made me feel even more special even from miles apart.
And when I thought that Valentines Day is over, I get flowers sent to me while I'm in training in Mississippi. And it wasn't even Valentines Day anymore... my husband shows me that he doesn't need a day to remind him to treat me good or make me feel special, but he uses that day to still plan and coordinate something.
