Valentine’s Day may not mean a huge amount to your significant other. Or maybe they’re the type of person who loves getting a dozen roses and a box of chocolates on this special day. They could also be someone who’s a fan of the day but perhaps would appreciate an original gift this Valentine’s Day – but one that still proclaims ‘I love you’.
Either way, you want to reserve that special day for the two of you, but instead of going on a regular dinner date, why not try some fun and creative options that you could enjoy together?
The best part is that you don’t have to break the bank to impress your wife or girlfriend as we have some gifts for $25 and under that’ll help make this Valentine’s Day unforgettable:
The obvious (but expensive) option on this romantic day is to buy a bracelet, necklace, or earrings as a gift. But there are cheaper ways to offer a token of love.
Take, for example, AREOK’s jewelry and key dish that says ‘I Love You More. The End. I Win.’ This is a sweet reminder of just how much you adore your partner.
To help them think of you every time they reach for their keys, VANLOVEMAC offers a double key chain of a black and a white cat. The snuggling cats separate into two like a cuter version of a friendship necklace so that you each get half.
If your wife regularly travels for work, she may benefit from the accessories travel bag from 365park for all her face, hair, and make-up products.
Capturing Memorable Moments
Are your phones full of photos you’ve both taken but haven’t looked at since? Smartphones are great for storing images, but their small screens don’t provide the same pleasurable experience as flicking through a book stuffed with meaningful memories.
Photo book editor Shutterfly lets you gather all those memorable moments for as little as $15.99. It offers a variety of themes dedicated to love, plus you can even add a passionate poem, quote, or any other text.
If you’re able to have fun when creating your photo book, the end result will show it. So, while you should try and avoid overcrowding each page with too many images, feel free to go wild adding text, stickers, and backgrounds, as you pour your whole heart in.
One good approach to creating this book is to follow your relationship timeline, with the events arranged to flow as they would from the beginning to the end of a fairy tale.
Turn Your Next Date Night Into a Game
Finding time for one another can be difficult with busy schedules, family outings, work, etc., and perhaps you’ve been feeling disconnected from your partner recently. BestSelf has a Date Deck card game that offers exciting and thought-provoking conversation prompts for unlocking connection, companionship, and meaningful discussions with your significant other.
If you’re both avid game enthusiasts, why not play one that progresses on a weekly basis with your significant other? Nothing spells out quality time together quite like the card game for couples, One Year of Love. Not only does it provide inspiration for what to do on date nights, but it also comes with couples’ conversation cards and fun games. Draw a card every week for a year and add a fun and unpredictable new event to your couple’s routine.
Some ‘Me’ Time
It’s safe to say everyone loves a bit of alone time for relaxation, including your significant other. Airome has an aesthetic porcelain essential oil diffuser that could turn any space into a tranquil escape. This is an ideal gift and can even be a welcome addition at work.
Another well-appreciated present is the HANPURE Sleep Headband with Bluetooth. The headband connects to your phone and is placed like a sleep mask over your eyes and ears so that you hear your preferred music or calming sounds as you drift off to sleep.
Lastly, if your partner is too busy for a spa day, why not bring the spa to them? GLAM UP has a pack of 12 facial masks that includes hydrating, moisturizing, brightening, and soothing beauty masks for all skin types.
From education to self-help and DIY guides, you can’t go wrong with a book. Badass Affirmations: The Wit and Wisdom of Wild Women is an inspirational text with powerful affirmations for women. This book screams that you are in awe of your amazing partnerm and even has journal prompts to help her work through thoughts and feelings.
But if you’re looking for a book to enjoy together, try A Year of Us: A Couple’s Journal, where you answer a question daily to spark fun and meaningful conversations that will deepen your relationship.
A Little Pizzazz
Of course, the gestures of love don’t need to stop there, as the key to a successful gift is personalization. So, why not jazz it up a little? Sprinkle some rose petals on the kitchen table, along with some atmospheric candles and her new gift – she’ll definitely feel the love when she arrives home.
You can also make her eyes widen in surprise by making her favorite dessert. Or, if you’re not the greatest baker and don’t want the fire department at your place this Valentine’s Day, grab a delicious bottle of wine and some tasty snacks, and really take the time to revisit your relationship so far as you wander down memory lane.
