    Default A Gift

    Dear Teachers,

    A. On Valentine day I often make a speacial gift for my girlfriend by myself, and then I often create a suprise before giving her the present.

    - Is this sentence grammatical?

    Thanks a million!

    The way I'd see the sentence is as follows:

    On a Valentine's Day, I often make a special gift to my girlfriend by myself, and then I often make a surprise before giving her the present.

    Hi there ,

    I'm not a native nor a teacher

    But what about ....."spring a surprise"...rather than "create a surprise"

    Does it sound more appropriate?, I don't know for sure, correct me if I'm wrong.

    And, is it "On a Valentine's Day" or "On Valentine's Day" ? I would say it's the latter.

    Cheers
    Udara
