Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate the special relationship that we share with that special somebody in our life. It’s common knowledge that finding them a gift they will truly appreciate can be difficult. To help you out, the following guide contains creative and unique Valentine’s Day gift ideas that you can use to create a memorable present.
Give A Thoughtful Experience
Experiences are one of the best gifts to give as they can create lifelong memories for both of you. It could be something special like a romantic dinner for two, weekend getaway, cooking class or a couples massage. If it’s something out of the ordinary, it will be even more memorable. For example, look for a local business that offers special experiences such as a hot air balloon ride over your city. If the budget is tight, think about activities you can do together without much financial investment such as a weekend picnic in the park or going on a long drive together with some great music! Whatever experience you decide on, make sure it reflects your partner’s interests and preferences.
Another option is to give your loved one experiences that are unique and perfect for two by ordering an experience gift box or gift card. Companies like RedBalloon offer different types of experience boxes that vary from dinner cruises and outdoor adventures to cooking classes and spa treatments, among others. Depending on the occasion or budget, you can select gifts with prices starting from around $30. Best of all, the recipient has up to three years to enjoy their gift, so there’s no need to rush!
Finally, don’t forget about experiences that you don’t need to pay for such as writing your own love story together or creating personalised romantic coupons where each of them offers something different such as a night at home indulging in your favourite dessert or a weekend away somewhere special.
Creative and DIY Gifts from Home
Nothing says I love you like handmade gifts from home! It shows that you spent time and effort into their gift. The good news is that nowadays there are plenty of budget-friendly options using items around your home or simple craft materials. Here are some suggestions:
If you have a knack for baking, make heart-shaped cookies with icing or chocolates in different flavours (don’t forget little messages in each one!) You can also try making creative cards with creative designs such as paper roses or brief romantic poems written inside. This can be done by hand or with Microsoft Word (check online for Valentine’s Day templates). If your partner has mobile phones these days why not upload romantic videos or photos on their device for them to find when they unlock it?
On the other hand, if you are feeling crafty why not try making something special and unique such as personalised pillowcases with their name stitched into it, scrapbooks with pictures and messages or photo frames with pictures of special moments together? These do-it-yourself options require patience and practice but they are worth it in the end!
Finally, if all else fails don’t forget you can purchase gifts online at reasonable prices such as mugs with customised messages on them or funny t-shirts with inside jokes or phrases only both of you would understand plus many other options! Make sure to use free shipping options if available so that you don’t have to worry about delivery costs at the last minute!
An Unexpected Gift Basket
A lovely way to show your loved one how much they mean to you that is sure to make them smile is creating an unexpected gift basket filled with surprises related to their passions, interests or hobbies. It could include their favourite items like chocolates, sweets, coffee capsules and other food items; gadgets related to their passions such as sunglasses for outdoors activities; DVD collection of their favourite films; accessories related to travel if they are fond of travelling; beauty products; tickets for plays, movies or sports activities…the list is endless! It all depends on what they like best and what kind of tastes they have. You can also add little personalised items like customised key chains or mini photo frames which will make the basket even more heart-felt.
Similarly, if you don’t have enough time before Valentine’s Day to prepare a gift basket (or even if you do!), there are plenty of companies who create beautiful ready-made baskets so that all you need to do is choose what suits them best and make sure it gets delivered before the 14th!
Lastly, if you are looking for something lighthearted why not take advantage of one of those subscription boxes designed specifically for foodies? There are lots of companies offering different types of subscription boxes which vary from monthly wine tastings and beer subscriptions which accompany premium snacks to special creations full of beauty products tailored for those who love skincare products! These boxes come in different sizes depending on how much you want to spend and provide surprise after surprise throughout the year so your loved one never runs out of ideas on what new things to discover!
Show Love Through Music
Music has been known to express emotions far better than words ever could! Whether it is romantic ballads from the 80s or 90s; music genres like Jazz, Rock & Roll or Soul; classic numbers from The Beatles; modern hits from Bruno Mars; EDM songs…there is something special about having music dedicated especially for your loved ones. You could take this idea further by putting together some playlists that encompass all your beloved’s music preferences and favourites – this will definitely make them feel special on Valentine’s Day! To top it off why not present these playlists along with headphones so they can listen everywhere they go?
You could also buy tickets for concerts or music festivals ranging within diverse styles – depending on what genre your beloved enjoys listening – plus t-shirts related to bands/artists performing there so they get the full musical experience!
Finally, another option might be purchasing digital music albums for him/her either through Apple Music Store/Amazon Music/iTunes etc., depending on which device they use most often (remember always checking compatibility depending on OS). With digital albums now being sold at reasonable prices this idea would be cost efficient yet still quite thoughtful!
## Get Them Some Momentos
Sometimes giving momentos doesn’t mean expensive jewellery but rather nice gestures like a letter expressing how much we care about them; handwritten notes/poems detailing our love along with small trinkets which will remind them each day why they are important in our life – this gesture might be especially relevant if long distance relationship is involved -; scrapbooks full of pictures taken during memorable moments shared before gifting plus short messages talking about those memories; tickets/vouchers which give access to places & activities related to hobbies – say scuba diving lessons if he/she enjoys water sports -…the possibilities are endless here! Just remember these don’t necessarily have substantial monetary value but rather sentimental worth they will treasure forever!
Momentos could also include pieces like teddy bears made out of dark chocolate (yes dark chocolate bears!), mugs printed with humorous jokes/inspirational quotes plus their favorite snacks included which just scream ”I totally get what makes him/her happy!”. If cost isn’t an issue then perhaps going for tech items like tablets loaded with karaoke applications pre-loaded with songs he/she likes singing at home when no one else is around – because everyone loves some private singing session now & then – might be just the right option here!. Or what about headphones? After all these days having good quality headphones while listening our favorite songs has become quite crucial!.
Making Things Even More Special
Last but not least let us not forget about final touches aimed at making things even more special such as champagne bottles decorated with ribbons/notes – because champagne & bubbles always feel nice -; flower arrangements containing flowers representing specific properties e.g Rosemeaning love/romance plus Alstroemeria symbolising deep friendship;; small cakes accompanied by homemade cards expressing how much we care about spending time together…after all sometimes simple things really tell more than words!. All these things will definitely add something extra special when combined into one present!.
Whatever valentine’s day gift you decide upon make sure it represents true feelings between both parties always taking into account what he/she enjoy most along with small details tailored around likes & dislikes!. With this guide we hope making Valentine’s Day present becomes easier & stress free task!.
