Even if you?re not proposing come February 14th, a Valentines card is still a great way to mark the occasion. A great way to make your card meaningful, without breaking the bank, is to create a card yourself, and there are loads of great websites to help you.
If you want a real-life, physical card, it?s easy to find a website where, for just a few quid, you can choose from a selection of cards from recognised brands such as Me to You, and then personalise them as much as you like by changing the words and colours on the card. You can even upload your own photographs. Then have the printed card sent either to you, or better still, have it sent anonymously direct to your recipient.
There are even sites which are completely free. Many have an enormous range of cards for Valentine?s Day and you?re bound to find something suitable to be emailed to your sweetheart.
Inexpensive and Creative Valentine?s Gifts
? Make a book of vouchers for your partner, including a voucher to spend a day with his mates or with her girly friends, a voucher to get out of an argument for free, a voucher for a massage after a long day, or anything else you can think of.
? Take the time to create a playlist for their iPod, so on a miserable journey to work they can be cheered up by a whole hour of meaningful songs that will remind them of special times.
? Dig out all your old photos, and create a collage of all of the best photos of the two of you.
Say it with Flowers
If your other half has traditional taste, a bouquet of flowers makes a romantic, old-fashioned Valentine?s Day gift. Probably the best known name in the floral world is Interflora, which encompasses a huge network of florists nationwide. You can order online, or call your local florist to discuss what you would like. There is a growing trend for women to buy flowers for men on Valentine?s Day. Interflora has a great selection of designer arrangements, which might just hit the spot.
