Valentine’s Day is coming this Monday and our focus tends to fall on our romantic relationships (or lack thereof), but you don’t want to neglect the friends and family you also love and care about — especially when they’re far away. One really nice and simple way to remind them is to send a video message from you and the people around you.This is not a hard thing to do, and you don’t really even need to edit the results if you take one long clip. The above is an (excessively long) example my sister sent me awhile ago. It wasn’t for Valentine’s Day, but just some things she recorded for me when I lent her my video camera for a project. She sent it back with all the video seen above. I found it while going through some old videos and remembered how nice it was to hear from and see everybody who I live so far away from now, and how nice it would be to receive something like that on Valentine’s Day — especially from someone you haven’t heard from in a while. It’s good to remind people you care about them, and this is the perfect time to do it. If you’re looking for a nice Valentine’s Day gift—and one that doesn’t cost you anything to make — grab a video camera (or capable device), the people in your life, and let someone know you’re thinking of them via a video message.
