【在情人節,向地球示愛。】

【在情人節,向地球示愛。】

最近,情人節禮物點子處處皆見,眼花繚亂,三心兩意了吧。

先別急,深呼吸,看一看你和他 / 她的照片,

回想一下,你倆之間甜蜜溫馨的時光,

這些感覺,是由甚麼成份製造的?

有人說,情人節跟其他節日一樣,少不了禮物和浪漫晚餐。

其實,情人節是一個感恩節,

感謝對方守在身旁,感謝對方的付出與愛護,

再鋪張花巧的橋段,最終不過為了

看到對方窩心的笑臉、得到溫暖的擁抱而已。

所以,如果你還沒想到怎樣慶祝情人節,

不如回歸根本,思考甚麼可以換來他的快樂、為二人締造難忘回憶。

以下是一些表達愛意,同時亦向地球示愛的點子: 

 

1. 不如野餐

找一處草地,公園也好,郊外也好。一塊檯布,幾份自備小食。

一起感受大自然的寧靜,只有談天,沒有其他娛樂打擾對彼此的專注。 

 

2. 觀星看海 

可能是最古老又最浪漫的事情,夜空與星光總是有難以抵抗的魔力。

在遠離繁囂的地方,即使在香港都可以看到漫天星光,例如西貢和大美督等。

 

3.自煮晚上

個人最喜歡自己煮,不是因為在外的盛饗昂貴鋪張,

而是因為自己設計菜式,選用本地食材,用心地最健康的方式烹煮,

沒有甚麼比此更表達出對另一半的關心。 

 

4.送真正的心意

真的想送禮物嗎?除非你認為對方只值得收到「大路」的產品,

否則忘記那些情人節購物點子吧。

真的想對方感受到你的心意,請先慢慢地想一想對方的生活,

真正體貼對方生活需要的,遠比他想要的消費品更有意義。

送出對方真的會恆久保存的,亦是對地球負責任的行為。 

 

5.只留在心的禮物

不是要眼得見的,才稱得上是禮物。

一首歌、一張照片,總之可以觸動對方心靈的,就是一份心意。

何不為對方送上精選的歌曲清單、唱一首歌給他?

或者,他想要的,就是這些而已。

祝你和另一半,每天都是情人節。

Express your love for S.O. and Mother Earth



V-day gift ideas are everywhere these days.

Aren’t they all too dazzling and hard to choose from?

Slow down, take a deep breath.

Look at a picture of you and your other half.

Recall the sweet moments between you two.

Those feelings of happiness - what are they made of?

Celebrating Valentine’s Day, to some, is like any other festivals,

Where fancy gifts and romantic dinners seem necessary.

This special day in February, however, is a chance

For us to express our gratitude

For his/her being there, next to us.

For his/her giving and loving.

No matter how lavish a celebration is,

A smile of genuine joy, a warm hug are all that we ultimately ask for.

So, if you are still uncertain about your V day plan,

Start from zero again.

Think about what makes him/her happy,

And what makes moments between you two unforgettable.

If you want to express your love for your signature other and Mother Earth,

Here are something you can do: 

 

1. What about a picnic? 

Go somewhere that’s green, be it a park or the countryside.

A picnic mat and several homemade delicacies will get you ready to

Feel the tranquility of nature and togetherness.

Chat and do nothing else. Keep your attention only for him/her. 

 

2. Stars and the sea 

Probably the oldest way to celebrate, and probably the most romantic too.

There is something irresistible about stars and the night sky.

Take his/her hands and leave behind the hustle and bustle of the city.

Remote places like Sai Kung and Tai Mei Tak are

some of the best kept secrets for a starry, starry night. 

  

3. Dinner at Home 

A personal favourite, not because eating out is expensive and lavish.

It’s because nothing tells him/her better your love and care than

Designing the menu, hand-making local ingredients and

cooking a meal in the healthiest way - all by yourself. 

 

4. Give a Gift that Speaks your Heart

Want a gift for him/her?

Unless your other half deserves nothing more than cliches,

Forget about those Valentine’s Day gift ideas.

Give something that genuinely manifests your affection.

Think about his or her lifestyle, habits, and needs.

Something he/she needs is way more meaningful

that something he/she desires.

Buying something that he/she would keep is also

being responsible to Mother Earth.  

 

5. A gift that only stays in heart 

A gift does not have to be tangible.

A song, a digital photo, anything that touches his or her heart is a gift.

What about an affectionately curated playlist?

A song sung only for him/her?

Perhaps it’s all you need to do to make him/her happy.

Wish you all happy Valentine’s Every Day.
