  • Do you think Valentine’s Day is a waste of money?

    Valentine's DayHere’s what some of our Facebook friends had to say:

    We celebrate with a nice dinner the day before or after to avoid the crowds and we exchange mushy cards. Maybe we should do this the 14th of every month as a reminder to express our feelings for each other. – Linda Sowell

    Definitely over commercialized. We should honor each other regularly throughout the year. That being said though, most do not do it without having a day made for it. – Janine Batiste

    No. You don’t have to be “cliche” with it, just do what feels right for you and your loved one! I LOVE it! – Lavender Booth

    Can you relate to any of these comments? Here’s what we discovered about Valentine’s Day to keep love in the air: Your Money Personalities have EVERYTHING to do with how you view Valentine’s Day. (Tweet this!) Want a good chuckle? Find your two Money Personalities in the list below and see if this is how you respond to Valentine’s Day.

    • Saver: you can’t wait to show your love, but your gift won’t break the bank.
    • Spender: you have no problem living it up to make your statement of love!
    • Risk Taker: the wilder the better.
    • Security Seeker: no element of surprise with your gift.
    • Flyer: cozy up, Honey! You just want to spend time together.

    Bottom Line? Chuckle at how your Money Personalities view Valentine’s Day, but give your gifts this year keeping your spouse’s Money Personalities in mind. Here’s some hints to do just that.

    • Is a Saver really going to want a lavish gift? We know not :-).
    • Is a Spender going to want the lavish gift? Absolutely!
    • Is the Risk Taker going to want something “different?” Oh yes.
    • Is the Security Seeker going to want a well thought out gift? Right on.
    • And, last, is the Flyer just going to want to spend time with you? You got it.

    Give the gift that keeps on giving by thinking about your spouse and wrap your gift with their “BIG Money Personality Bow.”

      I just remembered this from last Valentine’s Day. My spender/risk taker husband bought me a gold and diamond heart necklace. I love it and didn’t ask how much it costs (unusual for me didn’t want to be a downer on his personality) My husband loves his cars so the saver/security seeker me bought him a gift certificate for lots of car washes! We both were very happy.

      I think holidays like sweetest day and Valentine’s day are great reminders to help us be intentional in our relationships.
