Cheap Valentines Gift Ideas
is a nice gesture, and an almost necessity nowadays, to give
your lover a gift on Valentine's Day. Coming home empty handed
could leave you sleeping on the couch. But this is the age
of downsizing, and things can be so awfully expensive, especially
for young couples, just starting out and trying to build a
life together. A dozen red roses, with delivery, will run
your close to $60 in most places. This doesn't mean you have
to break the bank this year. Just try some less expensive,
but no less thoughtful ideas.
If you can't get her jewelry, get her a jewelry box, or a
trinket box. Heart shaped is the best bet for this occasion.
The traditional jewelry
store black velvet covered box will cost you and is kind of
dull. Go with a lacquered or painted wood box, which can be
bought anywhere from five to ten dollars at most gift shops.
For couples starting out in a new apartment, in need of some
decorations to make it feel like home, try a decorative plate.
Something with a cupid, or roses on it will express your love,
and be a constant reminder to your special somebody for years
to come. Again, you can buy plates at gift stores or local
craft stores for around $30 for a nice one.
Another decorative trinket that says "I love you"
is a music box that plays a love tune. You don't have to get
one studded in diamonds or anything. Just an standard music
box with a lovely design painted on high quality wood can
be bought for between 30 and 40 dollars.
Instead of a dozen roses, get half a dozen. The thought is
still the same, and for less than $30, your partner won't
quibble about the number.
Finally, nothing says loving like sweets. You can obviously
buy a cheap Russell's Chocolate box at any grocery store,
but a candy bouquet would be even better. The online florist
of sorts, "Sweet expressions" is offering a basket
that looks like its filled with flowers but is in fact made
of candy. The basket runs $33.95 with two day air mail and
comes in a variety of colors. You can contact Sweet Expressions
These and countless other ideas can help you to express your
true feeling this Valentine's Day without being unloving to
