We all know that we shouldn’t care too much for money … money won’t buy us love! In that spirit, here are some Valentine’s Day gift ideas that make a whole lot of love, but don’t cost too much money. The only things you need to bring for every single activity is the sense that your partner is an amazing, special person and a valuable part of your life … and the will to have some fun!
$0: Servant for a day
It costs absolutely nothing to pledge to do everything for your partner for a day, and is a Valentine’s Day gift idea that will be remembered for much longer than flowers or chocolates. Go above and beyond by trying to anticipate your partner’s wants. Usually this sort of good deed doesn’t go unrewarded for long … you’ll usually find that your partner will be thinking of and getting things for you in the week following Valentine’s Day, as well!
$10: DVD Night In
Each of you should pick a DVD that you think your partner will like, with absolutely no regard to whether you want to see it. You may well be surprised at what your partner turns up! Order home delivery for dinner, and grab a bottle of whatever tickles your fancy and enjoy a romantic night in.
From $40 to $100: Pamper Packs
If you’re creative and have a few massaging and personal care skills, you can set a pamper pack up at home for your partner as a Valentine’s Day gift idea … guys love these as much as girls. Include items like:
- a relaxing bath with oils or salts
- hair and skin masques or treatments
- massage – body, head and face and
- body scrub.
Alternatively, you can book yourself and your partner into a day spa for massaging, scrubbing and masque-ing! It will cost a little more, but you should have some great ideas to replicate at home.
From $30 to $200: Jewellery, Perfume, Lingerie etc
This very personal sort of Valentine’s Day gift is always a hit. Jewellery is worn close to your body, as is perfume … and lingerie might only be worn by one of you, but is certainly a gift for both! Ladies should remember that guys can be just as enthralled by jewellery and cologne as those of the fairer sex. Valentine’s Day Flowers never disappoint and you can easily spoil her rotten for under $200 with red long stemmed roses and a bottle of bubbly.
Up to $250: Romantic Getaway
Depending on where you stay, you and your partner could have a blissful one or two nights away for this Valentine’s Day gift price tag, with no work or cleaning to concentrate on. Your only task will be remembering how much fun it is to be around each other. Check out accommodation deals on www.wotif.com, www.quickbeds.com and www.lastminute.com.au for an area nearby.
Whoever said that it is the thought that counts was right when it comes to true love, so with two weeks to go until Valentine’s Day, make sure you choose a gift that is close to your partner’s heart and brings you even closer as a couple.
