Valentine's Day Is An Opportunity To Show People You Care About Them

Jan 30, 2008
In this article we will discuss several group gift ideas or suggestions that hopefully will make your loved ones really understand that you do care for them.

First, don't forget your parents. It is imperative that you get them a special gift for this time of the year. They will say that they don't want anything but a little effort on your part can translate into several degrees of happiness for them. February is a cold month for half of the planet (approximately). Why don't you get them an exotic vacation? Yes it is expensive so before you consider buying them a dinner or sending them some virtual flowers, consider a group gift. Talk to your brothers and sisters and share the burden with them. Instead of having all of you buying something for your parents that will end up in the trash can before you are done with Valentine dinner, why don't you make a small investment and get your parents the vacation they want.

Group gifts can be difficult to organize and probably the most challenging task is for the group gift organizer as he has to make sure everybody pays him back.

For this time of the year, Hawaii is an excellent choice of destination. You can find good quality hotels right on the beach for less than $1200 (two persons) and I am not talking about the big island, this kind of pricing will get you to Maui so they can really relax.

Is it wrong to buy a group gift for your girlfriend or wife on Valentines? You might think that she wants only you to get her something special. Well if you are in the same boat as I am in and you don't have an infinite amount of dollars to spend, then sharing the gift with close ones might be wiser. After all, your wife wants something nice and as long as she knows that you put in the effort of getting her this gift, then the outcome is more important than the procedure you chose. I am sure her parents want to get her something special as well.

Use a group gift website and send them an invitation to get her a nice spa certificate or a four day weekend get away to New York. I did this last year with my girlfriend and we had a wonderful time. One of my favorite places for sure. The food was excellent, the parks were nicer than I thought they'd be, and finally the Met was as impressive as they say it is.

No matter what you do, I hope you will have an excellent Valentine's Day. While the purpose of the day is not to buy gifts per some wishlist but to show the loved ones that you care for them, very small purchases can turn into exciting and valuable gifts if you use the group gift concept.
