It can be difficult to find gifts that really show much your partner means to you on Valentine’s Day. However, with some planning and thinking outside the box, along with this post full of some great ideas for Valentine’s Day gifts, you can show that special someone just how much they mean to you.
Special Love Notes Hidden in Their Wallet and Pockets
Rather than just telling them how you feel, you could give them small reminders throughout the day of your love for them. Try hiding some special notes in the pockets of their clothes and even their wallet, purse or work bag. As they go through their day, they are likely to come across those notes and will smile, laugh and maybe even cry at your messages.
A tried and tested method, but one that is repeatedly used for a reason. Instead of opting for a box of chocolates, why not buy them a special gift basket that includes lots of tasty treats. There are healthy options, but for this romantic day, you should probably stick to an option that allows them to indulge a little. It’s one day after all and chocolate is said to have to be an aphrodisiac.
Get Creative and Make Something for Them
Some of the best gifts you can give to someone are those that you’ve made yourself…from scratch. Although this may fill you with dread, the thought counts for more than your artistic prowess or baking wizardry. Whether you decide to bake and ice their own special cake, perhaps using their favourite ingredients or you paint them a picture or write them a poem, they will be undoubtedly bowled over with love and feel touched that you went to all that trouble.
Give Them the Day Off
Let Valentine’s Day be their day off. We are not saying go into work and put a shift in (though if you are able to work something out with their employers, or they work from home, this is a great idea). We are suggesting that you make it a day off their normal responsibilities. If they have chores they do that day, you can do them or if they have other responsibilities concerning your children, animals or anything else, why not take them over for the day?
Allowing them the time to relax and unwind will show them how much they mean to you in a very powerful way. You could even take it one step further and if they normal go to the salon to have a gossip with their mother, you could fill their shoes in for the day and do it for them.
You may stick to the same tired gifts every year because you don’t really know what else to do. Hopefully, we have been able to show you that it is actually very easy to think of unique and interesting ways to show your love for your partner on what many regards as the most romantic day of the year.
