For as long as I can remember I have loved Valentine's Day. To me, it is just the cutest holiday. In lieu of the upcoming day of love, I decided to put a question on my Instagram story asking girls, "If you could pick your own Valentine's Day gift, what would it be?" Here's what they said.

1. "A surprise date!"

Giphy

I relate to this one! I love a good thoughtful surprise!

2. "Something small and inexpensive but thoughtful"

Giphy

Sometimes the most meaningful gifts that girls love aren't expensive but thoughtful.

3. "Candles, chocolate and flowers (not roses though)."

Giphy

Every girl is different. Some girls don't like roses. Every girl deserves to be known for who they are and what they like.

4. "A day trip to a neighboring state! Making new memories is always a great gift."

Giphy

Is your girl a travel junkie? A day trip to make new memories would be perfect for her.

5. "Chocolate-covered strawberries and a dinner date"

Giphy

The chocolate-covered strawberries because they're good.

6. "New VDAY pj's and a candlelight dinner at home"

Giphy

Some of us don't always want to go out. Some of us ladies like to kick back and relax with an intimate and comfortable dinner at home.

7. "Pedicure and/or massage"

Giphy

Some ladies love to be pampered and I don't blame them.

8. "The biggest bottle of wine money could buy and takeout Chinese food"

Giphy

This sounds like the ultimate night in.

9. "A completely planned date night with a sweet wildflower bouquet."

Giphy

I love it when a guy plans everything out! It's so nice to be surprised by things.

10. "A weekend stay at a hotel with a bathtub for a bubble bath."

Giphy

Can I get an amen?

11. "A day trip out of the city you live in."

Giphy

Sometimes getting away for the day is just what you need.

12. "A necklace or a song/poem written for me."

Giphy

This one is so sentimental and sweet.

13. "All the cheesy things: roses, a stuffed animal, a box of chocolates but most of all a love letter."

Giphy

Some of us just love the basic cheesy things that line the isles during Valentines.

14. "Dinner, chocolate-covered strawberries and a bottle of good champagne."

Giphy

Strawberries and champagne? Yes, please.

If you read through these there is sort of a common theme. Thoughtfulness. Every girl is different. Whether your girl is a foodie, a travel junkie, a wino or a homebody, she deserves a little bit of thoughtfulness for what she likes. When reading these answers I realized that a majority of us ladies just want simple things that we like and they aren't always big expensive items. These responses were from REAL girls who just want realistic and thoughtful gifts.

I'm the child of a Marine Veteran. He may have been out of the service by the time I was born, but the Patriotic Pride he lived by has been my family's life line. I grew up with the American Flag hanging in my front porch. My dad has the "Proud to be a Marine" license plate in the front of his car. And red, white, and blue is a completely acceptable way to decorate your living room. But it doesn't end with just that. You need to know why we celebrate freedom.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.

10 Revolutionary Women To Remember This Fourth Of July

Independence Day is almost upon us, which means that for most Americans, it'll be time to bust out the lawn chairs and grills, gather around family and friends, and praise our history through patriotic garb and grand fireworks displays. It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

But, while we celebrate what people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry did for this country, they are not the only ones who embodied the very virtues that our nation loves to advocate for. This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
