(The Philippine Star) - February 15, 2020 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — February is the time to celebrate all kinds of love. Whether you’re “self-partnered,” spending time with someone special, or dedicating the season with family and friends, you can rely on mobile technology to help show your love in simple but meaningful ways.

Here are seven ways to make someone feel even more special, even with just a few taps on your smartphone—proving that simple connections truly matter: 

1. Get creative with a heartwarming message

Whether you already have something planned out or thinking of a last-minute, sweep-off-your-feet gift, there’s nothing like a simple message that comes from the heart to let someone know you really care. Amp it up with a photo that takes you back to a special moment—or something that makes you look forward to a shared goal.

2. Beat the rush with a special flower or food delivery

No time? No problem. Just check out popular local delivery apps and search for that perfect flower arrangement or feast-for-two that fits your budget. It’s all about knowing your loved one’s favorites—flower, food or both—and you’re good to go.  

3. Purchase that special gift on your mobile phone

If your language of love leans towards the generous kind, don’t let the traffic stop you from getting the gift your special someone deserves. There’s a lot of shopping apps that let you have your surprise delivered right where you want it, when you want it. All it takes is just a few taps on your smartphone. 

4. Rekindle friendships through an old photo

Missing the good old days? Reach out to friends you haven’t seen for a while and remind them of that fun trip you had a couple of years ago. These days, it’s just a matter of reposting photos of memorable events—and tagging everyone—to get you to talk about the next catch-up dinner or impromptu road trip. 

5. Curate a special playlist dedicated to your loved one

Music takes us back to special moments in life, so a thoughtfully-curated playlist on music streaming apps such as Spotify would be perfect to show you care. From hugot tunes to tracks that feed your indie obsession, you can easily put together titles that follow the plot line of your love life.  

6. Binge-watch your fave kilig shows on Netflix

If you have your own soundtrack, your personal binge-watch selection can’t be far behind. Time to watch those series and movies that you never get the time to focus on.  

7. Share cheesy moments when you post your Valentine stories

You only get this one time of the entire year for that license to be cheesy, so make the most of your celebration by capturing and sharing these “love stories” on social media.
