15 Wallet Friendly Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Women
It’s nearly Valentine’s Day, your favorite day of the year, and it’s time for you men to think of Valentine’s Day gift ideas for women. I’m sure you couldn’t be more excited to aimlessly wander the stores looking for that perfect gift to impress that beautiful gal of yours. In all likelihood you’ll be grabbing whatever red, pink or heart shaped bobble that pops out at you and that’s OK, I’m not judging, it’s not most guys thing and I get that.
It’s also very possible that this holiday was created by women, for women. So, on behalf of all womankind everywhere, I apologize for that. I know the pickle it leaves you in every year. I mean, who really wants to spend a year’s wages on a bouquet of flowers that have the life span of a gnat and will look like weeds in less than two weeks?
I’m also well aware that you want to please that lovely lady of yours. Which is why you will be searching the stores frantically for something that will make her feel loved, yet something that won’t break the bank. The good news for you is that I’m here to help. I’m going to try and spare you those thrilling hours of wandering the aisles and help you create a Valentine’s Day that will blow all of her expectations out of the water.
Here are 15 Valentine’s Day gift ideas for women that won’t leave you broke and will leave her extremely happy! The excellent thing about these ideas is that many you can do them simply on their own or put several ideas together and still have money left in your wallet.
Valentine’s Day Scavenger Hunt
I’m personally the type of girl that loves the thoughtfulness and fun of a good scavenger hunt, which is why I love this idea for an inexpensive Valentine’s Day gift.
You can take this scavenger hunt one of two ways- an indoor scavenger hunt leading your gal to a special gift or a romantic activity within your home or, a scavenger hunt around your neighborhood, dropping clues at some of your favorite couple spots, ending with a romantic date or surprise.
Both options are great and what you choose just depends on your relationship and personality.
12 Months of Pre-Planned Dates
Take some time and plan out a year of dates that you and your sweetie can enjoy together. They don’t have to be expensive or over the top, sometimes simpler is better; a beach walk picnic, coffee and books at your favorite book store or a romantic dinner you planned with a movie at home.
The ideas are endless and what better way to say, “I love you” than by letting your woman know you just want to spend time with her?
Romantic Balloon Surprise
Surprise your girl with an impressive amount of balloons, attach a small card saying with why you love her to each one and then put it over the top with a heartfelt love letter (hint: the dollar stores have great balloons and inexpensive at just a buck apiece).
Sweet Sentiments Candy Basket
This is such a creative idea that is sure to bring a smile to your sweetie’s face! Pick out some of her favorite candy, attach a note using a little wordplay and watch her light up.
Don’t worry about buying the best Belgian chocolate for this, a snickers and some sugar daddies are what it’s all about! You can even add in non-candy items if you choose.
Coupon Book of Love
Okay, I know that this idea has been done to death, but I can’t help but love this classic. You can make your woman a coupon book that’s full of great ideas like “free back massage” or “good for one night out”.
However, if your woman is like me she may prefer your coupons say something along the lines of, “good for dirty dish duty for a whole week or “redeem for one mid-day nap, uninterrupted”. Trust me, if you give her a rockin’ coupon book like that, you too will be happy, happy, happy!
