It’s Valentine’s week. Do you know what you’re getting your honey? Sometimes these holidays can be stressful – we want to do something special, and we’d like it to be a surprise, but we don’t want to waste our time and money on something that is going to fall flat. This is where something I like to call “practical romance” comes in. My sister had this idea years ago. She created two books, one for him, and one for her, that answers all kinds of questions that help to solve the gift-giving dilemma. It’s also a great way to get to know each other! Besides listing sizes and colors, it also lists favorites in dozens of categories, friends, wishes, and dreams. There are places to write about memories, emotions, and how best to handle various moods. This is a nice reference to go back to whenever you need it – and it’s fun to go back in and update your own books as time goes on. In many ways, these questions help you to know yourself, too.
