Thoughtful Valentines Gift Ideas which won’t break the bank. The most romantic day of the year is also one of the most pressurised. Buying that perfect Valentine’s Day gift can be a nerve wracking experience, especially if it’s your first one as a couple. While some partners have a certain level of expectation, others just want a little token of affection that shows thought and care without any extravagance.
Here are some small present ideas, perhaps for accompaniments or as individual gifts that can contribute to a great Valentine’s Day experience.
For the man in your life
I was amazed when I saw the fun products on offer from the Manly Man Co. They have beef jerky bouquets, single malt scotch sweeties and even bacon scented wrapping paper! See website for the low down on the ultimate Valentine’s treat for a manly man!
They feel good, they look good, they’re easy to design, and they’re so light they can be hung anywhere. A canvas print could incorporate a design of your own choosing, but for Valentine’s Day it needs to say something about your relationship – something loving, classy and kind.
‘A rose by any other name would smell as sweet’ said Juliet, regarding the feud between her family and that of Romeo. However, in the 21st Century we do have the power to name roses, thanks to these marvellous gift sets that also include a calendar poster and a booklet informing you on the best growing practices for your rose.
There are hundreds of different designs that you can ‘make your own’, including interlocking hearts engraved with names; stones and plating; infinity bracelets and other designs. A necklace or personalised bracelet makes a wonderful gift.
Prints, photographs, and other pictorial displays of your love are excellent gifts that can be hung up for everyone to see. For something a little different you could pay an online artist to paint or draw a caricature of the two of you, using an uploaded photograph as the template. Do your research and make sure you choose an artist who is likely to flatter you both!
…but the right ones! Don’t just buy the packs that have been reduced by 30% on the display edges. Instead, aim for a set that she actually wants, perhaps by asking friends for advice, and then splash out on perfume, shower sets or something similar. Make sure the word luxury appears on the label, but showing that you’ve done your research and bothered to care is worth mega brownie points whether it’s luxurious or not.
Naming a star
An interstellar show of affection from beyond the heavens, and one which has several price levels; the more luxurious packages include bottles of champagne and silver plated presentation folders. Make sure you don’t make any typos – the certificate is printed at the time the information is entered!
