Dear Dish-It: The Perfect Valentine’s Day Gift

Dear Dish-it,

Valentine’s Day is coming up and I wanna get my boyfriend something amazing. The problem is that it's a long-distance relationship so we can't go anywhere special. We are both 16. He is sensitive and sweet and loves the color blue - LOL. I keep thinking of some ideas but it doesn't seem good enough...please help!

In terms of tucking things into the mail, shipping can get pretty pricey – and you don’t want to blow your whole gift-giving budget on postage! Here are some tiny tokens of affection you can mail to your BF:

  • Gift card to his fave store
  • Photos of you
  • A love poem, or a list of 100 reasons why you love him
  • An old key (tell him it’s the key to your heart)
  • Puzzle piece (tell him he completes you)

Virtual Visit

On video chat, be sure to dress to impress like you’re really seeing each other in person!

I would also talk to them and tell them how you feel. If they still say they are signing you up for the membership as a 13 year old and it scares you that much I would just tell them to leave you off the membership until you do turn 13.

I think every house has some drama going on in it everyday. In my house my Mom is a divorced mother of 3 kids. My older sister is away at college but when she was here there were yelling matches between my mom and her about staying out too late and getting a speeding ticket. Also with my mom being the only one raising us she has to work full time leaving me to watch my little brother who is 10 after he gets home from school. There also can be some battles that go on there and my mom doesn't want to here it from me or him when she walks through the door after work. I just try to not make it all personal and chalk it up to the stress of everyday life.

Hey! Yeah, I'm also one of those girls who doesn't wear makeup either... maybe on a rare occasion? Or if pestered into it.  I definitely understand where you're coming from with this. My mom doesn't exactly try to get me to wear it, but is she did, I wouldn't be to happy out this either. Don't feel bad. You're beautiful no matter what; makeup doesn't  define you -unless, of course you let it...  She probably wants you to feel "more grown up,"  or thinks it's nice for a "young lady," or that'll "boost your confidence." I don't know, there could be plenty of reasons.  If you feel uncomfortable the best thing to do would be to talk to her about it. Respectfully tell how you really feel and make sure she's listening.
