Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and if you’re thinking of doing the ye old chocolate hearts, fluffy white ‘I Love You’ teddy bear and red roses routine for this year’s Valentine’s Day, perhaps it’s time to put down the crinkle paper.
At National Debt Advisors (NDA) we are all about making good decisions with regard to your money, but we also understand that we need to enjoy the finer things in life. For this very reason, we’ve compiled a list of budget-friendly Valentine’s Day gifts.
Get ready for a night of hand-holding and secret smooches!
Romantic Picnic for Two
For a spin on the classic dinner-and-a-movie date, get some cheese, wine, and dessert options that both you and your boo will enjoy.
If you want to stretch your budget even further, you can arrange a romantic rendezvous in the comfort of your own home, with a soundtrack to your love story playing in the background. Add a couple of candles and voila!
A little pampering goes a long way. Get some relaxing massage oils and treat your partner to the magic of your own hands. Create ambiance with some scented candles or incense. By the time you’re done, your partner will be putty in your hands as they will appreciate all the effort that comes with this thoughtful gesture.
Luxury Bath Time
Nothing can get you to unwind the way a long, steamy bubble bath can. Run a hot bath for your partner and pair it with a bottle of their favourite wine.
It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without a spicy little something. It’s okay, you are allowed to be a little be selfish with this one. Perhaps you could opt for that silky pajamas your partner had her eye on or treat your partner to that little favour he’s been nagging you about *wink wink*.
DIY Gift Hamper
Create a collection of some of your partners favourite treats. Perhaps a good way to make this gift extra special is to have a gift for every Valentines Day you’ve shared. So if you’ve spent three Valentines’ together as a couple, have three of their favourite, inexpensive treats like a bottle of their favourite potables, their favourite sweet treat and a gadget they’ve had their eye on, and BOOM! You’ve got the perfectly paired gift.
