With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about what to get that special someone that you might want to spend the day with. While many people choose to splurge and adore their Valentine with expensive gifts and flowers, there is always a way to avoid breaking the bank while also showing him or her how much you truly care.
Mixtapes are the perfect way to show a great deal of sentiment and can also send a personal and intimate message to your significant other! Music has always had a strange and magical way of uniting and allowing people to express their love to one another, without actually conveying them with their own words.
In Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012), Logan Lerman’s character, Charlie gives his love interest, Sam (played by Emma Watson), a series of mixtapes to show his love in a subtle but adorable way. A playlist of all the songs that make you think of your Valentine would certainly put a smile on their face. It shows that you care enough about that person to take the time out to create something that came from your heart. It’s also convenient for people who are shy and have a difficult time expressing their feelings in person.
So this Valentine’s Day, draw up a playlist of your own with some cute lovey-dovey songs, that make you think of that special someone, and send it his or her way. Guaranteed, this gift will go a long way. Here is a playlist we made for the worldwide holiday of love.
