Romantic Valentine Gifts For Your Valentine On Valentine Day

Inexpensive Valentine Gift Ideas

By Susanne Myers

Over the past few decades, Valentine's Day has gone from a fun little romantic holiday into a fully commercialized day that's all about buying expensive flowers and even jewelry. Gone are the days where this day was about showing how much you cared about one another, or is it? With a little creativity, you can come up with some very unique and inexpensive valentine gift ideas.

Make Your Own Cards

Buying a pretty Valentine's Day Card has gotten expensive. Make your own card by digging through the craft box. All you need is a sheet of cardstock or even construction paper and a few decorations. Write a personal message on and inside the card. Dig through some old pictures and find one of the two of you. Cut out a heart shape from red or pink construction paper and cute a whole inside, just big enough to fit the picture. Glue the picture on the card, then glue the heart on top of it. Use other heart shapes, stickers, markers, glitter and any other crafting supplies you have lying around to finish the card.

Homemade Treats

You're also not stuck with having to buy expensive boxed chocolates. Surprise your sweetheart this year with some homemade treats instead. Dip some large strawberries in melted dark chocolate and allow them to dry on some wax paper. Sprinkle some chopped nuts or coconut flakes on the chocolate before it dries. Or allow it to harden and then melt some white chocolate. Pour the melted white chocolate into a Ziploc bag. Make small hole in the corner of the bag and use it to drizzle white chocolate over your chocolate covered strawberries. You can also make a batch of heart shaped sugar cookies, chocolate chip or peanut butter cookies decorated with a chocolate kiss, or even your favorite brownie recipe.

The Gift Of Your Time

One of the most precious gifts we can give these days is our time. With our many obligations, we often don't spend as much time as we'd like to with loved ones. Take an afternoon or even a whole day off and spend it together. Go to a movie, grab some lunch, take a walk together or do anything else the two of you enjoy. Cook dinner together and then snuggle up on the couch to watch a good movie. It doesn't really matter what you do as long as you make an effort to spend this special time together.

Menu Mailer - Make Dinner Easier

For an inexpensive gift that keeps giving all year long, make dinner easier with a menu mailer. Wouldn't it be nice to get a list of dinner ideas along with the recipes and a pre-made grocery list? With all the planning already done for him or her, the two of you will have more time to enjoy each other's company each night.

By Natalie Aranda

Valentine’s Day is globally accepted as the special day for expressing love towards the special people. It has become hugely popular among all the sections of the society. And people of all ages are joining in on the day’s celebrations with enthusiasm.

To make the occasion more special, it is a very novel idea to exchange gifts. Even though it can be indeed a tough task to come up with varied gift ideas, flowers for ages have played the role of a perfect gift. Flowers represent eternal beauty and thus can be an apt expression for love.

How to make the choice

Valentine’s day gift should be as special as the day itself. The choice of the Valentine’s Day gift should be done rationally. The flowers perfectly suit the occasion and the atmosphere to the tee. It is very necessary to keep few things in mind while making the choice of the flower. The primary thing to look out for is the nature of the flowers. The receiver must like the flowers selected.

Keeping in mind the nature of the occasion, the flower chosen should be very vibrant in color. If the flower imparts good fragrance then it will add to the essence of the occasion. Flowers are often considered as feminine so it can be the perfect Valentine’s for wife.

Presentation of flowers

The next thing to consider when choosing flowers is the packaging and presentation. The packaging and presentation of the flowers should be as such that they make the right impact on the receiver. And there are several experts available in the market that assists in designing a bouquet of flower.

Five Tips to Keep Your Valentine's Day Romantic Feelings Going Strong Year-Round

By Felicia Slattery

Ah, Valentine's Day. The flowers. The candy. The cards. The fancy schmancy dinner in a "nice" restaurant. Sharing one decadent dessert with two forks. The romance. The soft music. The candlelight that makes everyone look amazing. How wonderful.

Then comes the rest of the year. After the flush of romance on Valentine's Day, most couples soon forget the sweet sentiments on the cards they exchanged and fall quickly back into their routines, which while somewhat necessary, can lead to boredom and stagnation in the relationship in a hurry.

To avoid falling into that boredom and stagnation in your relationship, try taking an approach written about by Bill O'Hanlon, author of Do One Thing Different. Change one aspect of your relationship and notice how powerful even a small, seemingly inconsequential change can be. According to O'Hanlon, "Although not everything is in your control, you do have the power to make your life better. The smallest changes in your life can move you in the right direction."

Here are some some small things you can change about your relationship that will keep those Valentine's Day romantic feelings going all year long. By the way, many of these tips are inexpensive or even free, so they work for even the tightest budgets!

Send each other free e-cards or virtual flowers on a regular basis. Websites like and have developed a great way to have potential on-line customers experience their business: by offering free products delivered via email. Another plus is these services offer a wide variety of options to choose from, so you can send a funny or sentimental card or a photo of a beautiful bouquet or a fat-free box of virtual chocolates!

Start and end each day with the words, "I love you." By making this simple but profound expression of your feelings on a regular basis, your partner will continue to be reminded just how important s/he is to you.

Create a standing date that you never miss, regardless of life's circumstances. Decide what is important for you. You can read the Sunday paper in bed together while you enjoy coffee or tea together. You can go to church and breakfast together every Sunday morning. You can open a bottle of wine each Friday night after work and share your favorite moments from the week. Think of something you can do even if you are on vacation or other life events come up. You'll soon find yourselves looking forward to these special intimate moments.

Begin a "love journal." Write notes for each other in a book that you leave for the other to find: on his pillow, at her place at the dinner table, on the driver's seat of his car, in her bedroom closet. What would you write? Anything at all! Share your thoughts about an upcoming holiday, describe in vivid detail how you felt when you first met, re-live a moment from your honeymoon, explain your position about a recent disagreement, write a list of the top 10 things you love about each other. Whatever you can dream up, you can write in your love journal. Remember that the purpose is to draw you closer together.

Thank your spouse regularly. By offering a simple verbal thank you reminds your spouse that you do not take everything s/he does for granted. When he prepares a delicious meal, thank him for it. When she works long hours at the office to land a big client, thank her for working so hard. When he takes out the garbage, when she pays the bills - make sure your spouse knows how grateful you are by saying so.
What ideas can you think of that would work for injecting more romance into your everyday life? Remember, all you need to do is change one small thing to soon notice some big rewards. So instead of only having to look forward to the flush of romance Valentine's Day offers, you can have the entire year look forward to!

Romantic Gifts For Valentine's Day

By Barry Ohman

Valentine's Day that special day February 14 is soon to be upon us again and have you gotten something special for that lady in your life. Romantic Gifts are a sure way of letting that special lady in your life know that you care enough for her on Valentine's Day.

There are so many different Romantic Gifts that you may purchase, but first you must know what that special lady really appreciates. I guess you should already know what she likes and dislikes, otherwise she wouldn't be that special lady in your life.

If she is one that has a sweet tooth while then maybe Gourmet Chocolates are her preference and you should be able to purchase those online or locally at your favorite chocolate shop. Remember that Valentine's Day is a special occasion, so make sure that they are quality chocolates and not just the run of the mill store bought quality.

Flowers are definitely another way to get her attention if she is one who loves to receive flowers, especially a dozen red roses which I am sure will get her attention. If that special lady and you are having a long distance relationship, sometimes the easiest is to order flowers online and have them delivered to her at her home.

Perfumes and Jewelry are other Romantic Gifts that you may give that special lady on Valentine's Day. Whether it may be perfume or jewelry that you get her, make sure that you choose either that is of quality for a perfume or say for jewelry a nice pendant with chain or bracelet.

For the perfect Romantic Gift you could get that special lady something sexy like some exotic lingerie. I am sure that that special lady would like to wear something seductive for you on Valentine's Day and what a better way than to get her something ahead of time.

You must remember that for your special lady Valentine's Day is not the only special day in her life. There are those other days of the year that are just as important to her as they should be to you if you honestly love her and they include her birthday, your anniversary, Christmas and maybe a few others.

My name is Barry Ohman and my wife and I have started our first online dating website. As we met on the internet, we thought we would start our own online dating website which is called
