Inexpensive but Romantic Gifts for Valentines and …


Got an anniversary or a special holiday like Valentine’s coming up? This is the time to show your new girlfriend or boyfriend that you’ve got more up your sleeve than your armpits. It’s time to be romantic! Looking for a few ideas for romantic gifts for a special holiday? Read on for some great ideas that won’t break the bank.

Homemade gift baskets. Sometimes a gift that shows how well you know your partner can be the most romantic of them all. And a gift basket can be filled with things that he or she likes that can be found at any store– and don’t cost an arm and a leg. Think of a theme or activity that your partner loves, and build your gift around that. Want to have a romantic candle-lit bubble bath together? Put together a gift basket with champagne and glasses, candles, scented bath gel, and other bath goodies to use together. Does your partner love to hike? Fill a basket with insect repellant, sunscreen, a map, and other hiking accessories. And so on.

Something he or she hates to do. Everybody has that one awful chore that they hate. For some it’s cleaning out the garage. For others it might be cleaning the bathroom. Is there something your partner hates? Hire somebody to do it for them, or, even better, do it yourself. When they come home and see the house is sparkling from top to bottom and their most hated chores are done, it’ll seem like a very romantic moment indeed.

Sum up your love. Some people have the words in them to tell the people they love how they feel about them every day. But others don’t. If you want to tell your boyfriend or girlfriend what they mean to you but you don’t have the words, let others’ words do it for you. Go on the net or head to the library and assemble several poems or pieces of poetry that remind you of your partner. Then, for each one, write down what it is about that particular piece that makes it remind you of them– and what makes them so special.

Review your relationship. Most of us keep little mementos of our time, especially when we’re in a new relationship. If you have any of this, use it to make a homemade Valentines or anniversary gift. If, say, you met your partner on an internet dating site, make a scrapbook of your journey. Print out copies of your internet dating profiles and even some of your chats. Put in cards or mementos from places you went together, along with photos. Knowing that you remember every moment and find each one special is a great way for your girlfriend or boyfriend to see what they mean to you.

Something you don’t like. I think some of the most romantic gifts are those that require a sacrifice. So if your partner has a hobby or interest that you don’t like, do it with them as part of your gift. If, say, your boyfriend loves monster truck races, buy him tickets and go along with him. Or if your girlfriend is crazy about the ballet, buy tickets to the next one and take her out for a romantic evening. Just knowing you did something you didn’t like to make them happy is romance in and of itself.
