Valentine Venture: Do you reciprocate?

by epi on February 14, 2012

Q: My single friend always buys her girlfriends presents on Valentine’s Day, since she jokingly considers us her valentines.  Do I have to buy her a gift in return, or is it OK to get just one for my husband?

A: You don’t have to reciprocate when someone gives you a gift.  A gracious thank-you is all that’s required.  However, many single people feel left out on Valentine’s Day.  If a small gift or card might lift your friend’s spirits, why not make the effort?
