It’s the week of Love (and also pancakes) which means it’s that time of year to find the perfect gift that says ‘I Love you.’
I lurrrvvee Love but I’m not the biggest fan of Valentines day, I’d personally rather go out on a date and be showered with gifts when my calendar doesn’t tell me too and restaurants aren’t over charging. That being said valentines day gifts don’t need to break the bank so here is my top 5 gift ideas that are sure to make your partner love you just that little bit more.
Please note: These are all things I have either been given as gifts or received, so I know what Im talking about!
1. DATE JAR
The gift that just keeps on giving. All you need is a jar and some paper. Write some cute date ideas down and then throughout the year you can pick one out and off you go. They can range from romantic to adventurous whatever floats your boat.
2. MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE
Whilst I’m on boats, another great gift idea is a message in a bottle. Once again all you need is an empty bottle and some paper. Write down your favourite Love quote, 10 things you love about your partner or just simply I love you. Tie it with a ribbon and you may just get lucky.
3. 52 REASONS WHY I LOVE YOU
Talking of luck, how about a deck of cards made into a book with all the reason you love your boyfriend/girlfriend. I have actually received this gift before and believe me its EPIC! All you need is some ring binders or key rings, a full deck of cards and some paper (apparently I love a paper gift). On each card you write down a reason you love that person. Cute I know.
I ran out of ways to link my ideas! You can never go wrong with a scrapbook and its also fun for you to make, so really everyone wins. All you need is a book, lots of photos, a pen and maybe some glitter. Its always nice to reminisce on the memories you have made and laugh at your old selves. Lets be honest who doesn’t LOVE a scrapbook.
5. A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS
Polaroids and Instagram are all the rage these day so why not combine the two for the perfect Cupids day gift. Print out some of your fave insta snaps with you and your beau and create a picture perfect frame. All you need is a string photo frame (available here) and your snaps. Then hang it on your wall to show the world how lucky you are to have found each other.
