Valentine’s Day will be here before you know it—but, if you still don’t have a gift for your special someone, parents, or friends, there’s no need to panic. You may feel like you don’t have enough money to show someone how much they truly mean to you; however, if you choose your gift wisely, you can find something just as cheap as it is meaningful. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Put your artistic skills to use and create something.
Whoever the recipient is, they’re sure to appreciate something that was created by you with love. Whatever you create depends on your talent and comfort level. If you’re a writer, you can write a poem or letter. If you’re a musician, you can write a song on your instrument of choice. Other options include embroidery, crochet, and painting.
Use or repurpose something sentimental as your gift.
Maybe there’s an object that holds sentimental value between you and your Valentine. Since these types of gifts are extremely personal, it’s hard to list examples, but think back to significant times you’ve shared together and what kinds of objects could represent that time. Often a priceless gift (both literally and figuratively) with a lot of thought put into it will mean more than an expensive one anyway.
Stick with the classics.
Don’t fix what ain’t broke. A simple box of chocolates, roses, and/or a teddy bear could go a long way. Of course, to be a little more thoughtful, you can always tailor this gift choice to your Valentine’s preferences.
Spend time together doing something you both enjoy.
You don’t have to spend a lot of money to have a good time. Pick out an activity that you both like, and just enjoy each other’s company. Try to find something out of the ordinary that you don’t usually do, like going on a sunset hike instead of staying in again watching Netflix.
Remember: You don’t have to spend a million dollars to show someone you care. The best gifts come from the heart and are given with a lot of thought., not a lot of money. This Valentine’s Day, get creative with your gifts and save some money in the process.
