A previous report from The Inquisitr listed the Do’s and Don’ts of Valentine’s Day date night, including original ideas about how to spend time with your significant other. But what about actual Valentine’s Day gifts? Here are some gift ideas that will sweep your partner off his or her feet, without costing you hardly any time or money.
A list of reasons you love them. If you’re not sure how to shop for your special someone this Valentine’s Day, but you’re sure you’re madly in love, try giving that person a list of all the reasons they mean so much to you. If you’re in the relationship for the long-haul, you should have no trouble thinking of all the things that make your partner great. Maybe you love how they make you laugh, or how ambitious they are, or you love one of their quirky habits. A solid list of ten things will go pretty far, but the more reasons the better! Who wouldn’t want to spend Valentine’s Day hearing their partner explain exactly why they’re so perfect?
A neat little bag of five to 10 items sends a lighthearted message of love and playfulness. Of course, you know your partner best, so if cheap trinkets aren’t their thing you may want to go a different route. But it’s an idea to try for at least one Valentine’s Day, assuming you and your partner haven’t already agreed to exchange deeply sentimental gifts.
Don’t have anything commemorative of your relationship? Start saving now and use this idea for a future Valentine’s Day!
Make something. You probably saw this one coming. Find something you’re decent at and turn it into a Valentine’s Day gift. Write a song, carve some wood, make a card, cook a dessert, make some effort to show your partner means a lot to you. If the final product is silly and terrible, own it. That can be part of the fun of Valentine’s Day. It shows you’re willing to be vulnerable and cheesy for the sake of the one you love. Better Homes and Gardens has some ideas on homemade Valentine’s Day gifts.

In the true nature of Valentine’s Day, it’s the thought you put behind the gift that matters, not the money you spent on it.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
