Romantic Yet Inexpensive Gifts

It is that time of the year when love is in the air, and you have the most wonderful girlfriend, wife in the whole world. Everyone is busy shopping for Christmas, and that is just the beginning as right after that comes New Year, than St. Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, your anniversary, her birthday and etc. – frankly, the special days for both of you will start snowballing very soon. A simple, but nonetheless vital question pops up in your mind – what to do when you are on a tight budget? Keep in mind that it is the thought that counts, and you don’t need to spend a fortune on a present. Actually, with these romantic, yet inexpensive, gifts for her, you can become the man of the hour not only to her but to all her female friends and acquaintances. Take a look at some exciting suggestions that will cost you no more than a few bucks:

1. Ace of Hearts

Just a warning before I begin: This is an extremely romantic present meant to show your girl how much you appreciate and love her, however, if any of the guys so much as get a whiff of what you have done, you are about to get seriously teased! Go to the nearest dollar store, and get a deck of cards – the plainer the better. You will also need some key chain rings (you will find them in any hardware store), a hole plunger (if you don’t have one at home, sneak out the one from your office), and some markers, paper, glue, and in case you are particularly romantic some photos of you and her. Use the paper plunger to make 2 identical holes at the end of each card. Take the markers, and write something you love about your girlfriend/ wife at the back of each card. At the last one write something sweet, or romantic, or even a short poem – something that will make her drop everything and kiss you like the world depends on it.

2. Home town getaway

Every girl dreams of being taken away on a romantic trip somewhere far away from home. However, your budget can hardly sustain such a luxury but don’t despair there is a romantic, yet inexpensive, solution that will make you her hero. All you need to do is look up the interesting sights in your home town. You will be amazed at how many places you can visit, and at the entertaining activities you can share with her. The new term of home town getaway is staycation, and it won’t cost much. At the same time your girlfriend/ wife will be thrilled at the idea of leaving her home, and relaxing with her loved one, even if only for a couple of days. Nothing makes a woman happier than leaving her weekend chores like cooking and deep cleaning Brighton behind to spend some quality time with her partner. If you have mountains why not take her to a local hut, and spend the weekend hiking. You can even surprise her with a bouquet of wild flowers as opposed to the usual bunch from the near-by grocery store.

3. Scrabble with Love

Warning! This idea is extra geeky! Take out your old Scrabble and get all the letters that spell your names, if you don’t have enough, ask friends and family to help with the cause. Next, you will need a picture frame. Glue the wooden pieces together to the cardboard of the frame. On the off chance that your names don’t share at least one letter, you can use an adjoining word like “LOVE”, “ETERNITY”, “ALWAYS” and so on. Once you have the centrepiece, you can use your imagination to decorate the rest of the cardboard with dried flowers, paper clippings, satin ribbons (although it might be too much), pictures of you and her together, or anything else you find appropriate. When you are all set, put the frame on, and wrap it up. In case the wooden Scrabble pieces are too thick for the holders to close, use some tape or glue to fix the cardboard on its place.
