Although, we're not opposed to red roses.

My boyfriend knows how much I love red roses, but he also knows how often they're left unattended by our busy selves. They're pretty and usually inexpensive, but they just sit in a vase in his bedroom till they die.

We had the bright idea of cutting the dead rose petals off and placing them in a jar for decoration before but they become moldy and gross. In the end, it's kind of a waste of time and overall money that could've been used for something else.

Instead, I'd rather have practical, yet affordable gifts. I'm sure there's a lot of girls out there who feels the same way as I do, so boys, listen up. Here are 7 gifts you can get your valentine.

1. A gift card 

Get her a gift card to her favorite shop! Doesn't have to be a crazy amount, just enough for her to get herself something nice. Takes the guess work out of gift-getting anyways.

2. Personalized gift 

Nothing feels more personable than a personalized gift! I recently discovered a site called Uncommon Goods and they're a great place to find random gifts as well as personalized gifts for your boo.

3. DIY something 

This is just as personal as a purchased personalized gift from a website. This sh*t comes from the heart and she's gonna eat it up.

4. A scrapbook 

Either you create one of all your guys' best, precious memories or you get her one so she can do it herself!

5. Create a bucket list for the two of you to complete 

Easy!

6. Face masks 

Who doesn't love face masks? Plus, you can do one with her! It's a win-win situation!

7. Fake red roses 

If you must get her red roses, then at least get her ones that won't die after a few days!

I Blame My Dad For My High Expectations

Dad, it's all your fault.

I always tell my dad that no matter who I date, he's always my number one guy. Sometimes I say it as more of a routine thing. However, the meaning behind it is all too real. For as long as I can remember my dad has been my one true love, and it's going to be hard to find someone who can top him.

My dad loves me when I am difficult. He knows how to keep the perfect distance on the days when I'm in a mood, how to hold me on the days that are tough, and how to stand by me on the days that are good.

He listens to me rant for hours over people, my days at school, or the episode of 'Grey's Anatomy' I watched that night and never once loses interest.

He picks on me about my hair, outfit, shoes, and everything else after spending hours to get ready only to end by telling me, “You look good." And I know he means it.

He holds the door for me, carries my bags for me, and always buys my food. He goes out of his way to make me smile when he sees that I'm upset. He calls me randomly during the day to see how I'm doing and how my day is going and drops everything to answer the phone when I call.

When it comes to other people, my dad has a heart of gold. He will do anything for anyone, even his worst enemy. He will smile at strangers and compliment people he barely knows. He will strike up a conversation with anyone, even if it means going way out of his way, and he will always put himself last.

My dad also knows when to give tough love. He knows how to make me respect him without having to ask for it or enforce it. He knows how to make me want to be a better person just to make him proud. He has molded me into who I am today without ever pushing me too hard. He knew the exact times I needed to be reminded who I was.

Dad, you have my respect, trust, but most of all my heart. You have impacted my life most of all, and for that, I can never repay you. Without you, I wouldn't know what I to look for when I finally begin to search for who I want to spend the rest of my life with, but it might take some time to find someone who measures up to you.

To my future husband, I'm sorry. You have some huge shoes to fill, and most of all, I hope you can cook.
