Valentine gifts for her – ideas that won’t break the bank
There a number of different ways to say “I love you”. Some might be considered mushy or cliche, but we don’t happen to think there is such a thing. Giving your wife or girlfriend a gift that she’ll love is certain to be a winner, and if it also has special meaning then you’ve done all you can. Valentine’s Day is very important for a large majority of women right across the globe, and here in Australia it really is no different. Whatever you decide to do for such a special day, make sure your gesture comes from the heart.
Unfortunately there’s a lot of hype associated with Valentine’s Day and retailers seem to consider it a way to pressure us into buying their generic gifts, rather than something more meaningful. Which seems quite a shame. If you look back in history Valentine’s gifts were much more special and personal to the recipient. If you’re wondering how you can give your beloved a gift that will mean so much more take a look at the following Valentine’s gift ideas for her. We’ve already spoken about saying “I love you” in lots of different ways so let’s take a look at a few of them.
A scrapbook of memories – Your special lady will have likely kept a number of keepsakes to remind her of all your special moments together. Photographs, ticket stubs, menu cards, sea shells, dried flowers can all be gathered together and presented in a Valentine scrapbook. Most of the supplies you need to make it can be picked up quite cheaply at your local dollar store and then you just need to sneak away some of her mementos and stick them inside.
The gift of kindness – There’s some of you out there who are going to think this idea is really cheesy, but we happen to think that in today’s troubled world there is little enough kindness. What could be more meaningful than putting some effort into making your partner’s life easier? The simplest acts of kindness will be very appreciated – even if it’s only offering to do the washing-up.
The gift of your time – Spending time with your loved ones is a very special Valentine idea, especially if you’re always busy concentrating on your career. Organise a movie night and rather than choosing just one movie enjoy a full-on marathon. Curl up together on the couch and share some popcorn.
Burn off a CD of her favourite tunes – Not a lot of people have a collection of CD’s anymore, with the introduction of online music channels such as YouTube and Spotify, which will make this Valentine gift idea for her even more special. Take some time picking out tunes that are meaningful for the both of you and burn them onto a CD. This is a sentimental idea for Valentine’s Day that will make you both feel young again.
Bake up a storm – Homemade sweets, biscuits or cupcakes will give you the chance to put your heart and soul into your Valentine’s gift and certainly won’t cost a fortune. Take a look online, find a recipe that is relatively easy and give it a try.
Homemade Valentine gift ideas for her – A Valentine gift that has been handmade by you will be the height of thoughtful gifts for your beloved. There are so many options available online, all with handy instructions and illustrations, that you can make virtually anything.
