Break the newly-forming ice in this chilly weather with 10 warm and romantic gift ideas for your love!
The romance and charm that comes with the cold weather gives us a certain kind of high that makes us crave our own love story. It doesn’t get more enchanting than having someone you can warm up with amidst cool breezes and autumn landscapes. With the holidays right around the corner, it’s also the best time to start thinking of ways to show your significant other how much you care.
Girlfriends, boyfriends, wives, and husbands can be the best person to shop for and the most difficult at the same time. However, it’s not always the price tag that determines the best present. With the second part of our Falling in Love series, we hope to lessen the burden of getting gifts and be nice to your wallet as well with these thoughtful gift ideas. These treats are affordable, a gift for yourself as well as your significant other, and are sure to show that you’ve put some thought into it.
A week’s worth of love
Here’s a creative gift idea that is simple and sweet. Grab a standard Monday-Sunday pill box and fill it up with sweet treats and messages for your love to discover each day of the week.
Relationship history scavenger hunt
For your sentimental significant other, this is a gift they’ll love. Plan a scavenger hunt going through places that mark the best moments of your relationship – your first kiss, your first date, the place where you both laughed so hard until you cried. The locations that the hints lead to can be a gift-stop with small gifts to carry along the way.
This is a sweet, do-it-yourself gift that is fun for the both of you and exciting to use over time. Grab some construction paper and think of the things your love likes most. For example, you can offer free passes for:
– Breakfast in bed
– No whining during video games
– A head-to-toe body massage
– One hour of cuddling
– Two household chores
Burn a CD
You can never go wrong with a classic. Make a compilation of the tunes that remind you of your better half, “your” song, or singles that just remind you of how you feel when you think of them.
Pack a sunset picnic
It doesn’t have to be fancy, but taking the meal you would have eaten on the couch in front of the TV to the outdoors on a blanket changes everything. The casual and everyday easily becomes something intimate, romantic, and memorable.
Small techy gifts for your tech-crazy man/woman
If your boo is an addict for new innovations, look into inexpensive gadgets that they might appreciate more than gifts they can’t use. They’ll be excited like a kid in a candy shop.
Message in a bottle
For the couples that enjoy vintage concepts and understated charm, this is a romantic and affordable surprise. Pour your heart out or write a poem – whatever it is, your honey will keep this forever.
Personalize a mug
A mug is something that’s used every day, and sometimes (if work is grilling you) a few times a day. With a personalized mug, your significant other will constantly be reminded of your affection and smile.
Fill up a box with their favorite snacks, toys, and accessories. They can be cheap finds, but more is always merrier. Head to the dollar store and shop through their eyes. After that, it’s all about presentation.
Make your own jewelry
Whether it’s a necklace with a romantic charm for your gal or a leather bracelet with an engraved message for your guy, you can find the pieces to make your own accessories.
This will be more affordable, and much more thoughtful and a romantic activity.
Make getting gifts for your love a process that you enjoy. Don’t stress, and remember that them knowing you care is the best present of all.
