It happened again…Valentine’s Day snuck up on you and you don’t have the time, or the cash, to get an extravagant gift. No need to worry, we’ve got some great gift ideas that are sure to make your sweetie smile.
This may sound typical and unoriginal but there are ways to spice up the project and make it unique. One great suggestion is to buy an empty picture frame, preferably one over an inch deep. Gather whichever photos you want to include and pick a creative pattern or design to lay them out in. Next, choose a few photos here and there that you want to “pop” out from the rest. Using thick, double-stick tape, layer several pieces of tape behind a specific photo and watch as it gives a 3D effect to your collage.
If you aren’t the most creative person but still want to give someone a unique and memorable gift, try one of the many personalized products offered by sites like www.Personalizationmall.com. You can use photos to create one-of-a-kind coffee mugs or even pillows for your loved one.
A Grab Bag
Not sure what to get your significant other? Why not get them a little bit of everything-everything they like, that is. Start off with a large wicker basket. You can find one of these at your local dollar or grocery store. Next, fill the basket with items they love. An example of a basket might include: a bottle of wine, two wine glasses, a box of chocolates, a bottle of bath bubbles/soap, etc. The baskets can have a theme, such as the relaxing theme of the basket previously mentioned, or they can be a hodge-podge of random things you think your sweetheart will enjoy.
When all else fails…
Take time to make something you know everyone enjoys…food! Never underestimate the power of a home-cooked meal. To make the meal even more special, focus on their favorite foods or desserts. Knowing that you took the time to prepare everything and make a special dish in their honor will surely impress your Valentine.
