For all of you who can afford 5 star buffets and diamond rings, please close this page and move on. I have nothing to say to you show offs!! For the rest of you who are on a tight rope balancing between a happy valentine and a really small bank balance, welcome to the club!
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I am sure most of you are running around doing last minute shopping for your better half. The price of flowers, chocolate hampers and heart shaped balloons have increased triple fold and nothing is cheap the whole week!
Every year is a fight between choosing a big mix of random flower arrangement to a small bunch of big red roses and a big Cadbury gift pack to a small Ferrero Rocher box. No matter how BIG your bouquet is, it will droop off in a day or two. Why spend hundreds on something that will not stay for even a couple of days? This year I really wish people move away from roses and chocolates (please do not remind me about cheesy greeting cards!) and start gifting that the other person can actually use.
I have put together a gift list for both men and women on what they would really like and use. These gifts are not very expensive and will still make your valentine fell special. Read on!
GIFTS FOR HIM
Is your guy a health freak? Does he hit the gym regularly? Try gifting him gym clothes or fitness equipments that he can effectively put to use. Gym equipments, fitness accessories and sportswear are all affordable and he will love the fact that you remembered what he likes!
If you are good with your hands, try putting together a handmade album or a scrap book and add on photos and details on how life together. Guys don’t accept it openly, but they love the fact that you spent so much time putting together a gift for them.
Does your guy have a grooming kit? If not, it is a perfectly useful gift. It saves him a lot of time and is something he will cherish and use for years together. They are averagely priced so grab one immediately.
Cook your love’s favourite meal (or order take-outs, if that is easier) and put together a small candle light dinner at home. Remember that booze and food is much cheaper this way when compared to having them in an expensive restaurant and is way more romantic when there is just the two of you together.
GIFTS FOR HER
Women love experiences. Take her out to the very first place you guys met. Hold hands and walk down the memory lane (don’t be embarrassed, It always works!!). Spend the day with her and plan in advance. It will make her feel important.
Does your girl love looking good? Give her a basket of cosmetics/beauty products gift wrapped! (Do know her brand before you buy stuffs).
Go with face washes, scrubs, hair care products, body lotions & lip balms put together and packed. ClickOnCare.com, a leading healthcare player gift wraps these products and delivers at your door step when ordered online.Yoga & Meditation Girl? Is she a health freak and spends a lot of time working out? There are umpteen options including yoga mats, gym wear clothes & camisoles which she might use regularly.
How close are you to your girl? Give her some really intimate gifts that will tell her that you mean more in this relationship. After all, who will know her better than you, now and forever!
Valentine’s Day is all about showing your love to the other person. You can get him/her nothing and still make them feel special. Love is all about expressing it out. Do it the way you feel is right!
