This year, we are encouraging couples to celebrate Valentine’s Day in a thoughtful rather than expensive way.
We often overlook the obvious in our relationships. It is often the small gestures that make people feel cared for and understood.
Sometimes, making a cup of tea for one another, waiting up for a partner to get in, or offering to have the children alone for a few hours, so your partner can have a break – can mean a lot. It shows you care and that you have been listening to what they want rather than what you think they want.
Here, at RELATE EXETER AND DISTRICT, we know that feeling cared for and listened to are the essentials for a happy relationship.
Of course, gifts are always welcome and you can always do both!
