Valentine's Day is on February 14. We're guessing that you'll be very curious to know what gift you should be expecting from your husband/lover/partner.

Worry not!

Find out whether you can expect an expensive gift, some thoughtful words, chocolates or a lavish dinner, simply based on your star sign.

Aries: The Ram (March 21 – April 20)


They are one of the most spontaneous, energetic and romantic lovers.

This Valentine's Day, they are most likely to buy their loved ones red or yellow shoes because they are so cool and sporty.

They are not shy to proclaim their love with a bunch of red roses or take their partner out for a lavish meal and ensure that s/he is overfed -- whatever they do, it will be flamboyant.

They are extravagant in their gestures and gifting style and are happy to spend the money they have earned on their loved ones.

2017 for you:

Their love life this year will begin on a positive note -- the single Arian will finally meet the mate of his/her dreams.

Those already in love will plan a milestone together with their partner -- be it a long pending holiday or even a baby.

If you are dating an Arian, avoid nagging them this year as that could bring out their tough side.

Taurus: The Bull (April 21 - May 21)


Very romantic and steadfast in their love, they are all about sentimental gestures.

Long flowery notes, cards with hearts, a home-cooked meal or artifacts for the home -- they add a lot of personal touch to what they do.

They are the most romantic sign of the Zodiac and love to cook up a storm too.

As lovers, they expect their partners to understand their deep feelings.
