With a little creativity, you can make an original and thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift for the one you love. Technology has blessed us with opening our options when it comes to gift giving. Between shopping online and printing software, we are left with a choice as to whether we want to purchase our gift and have it delivered or create our gift from scratch.
Coupons are a great idea that you can make using your home computer. For each coupon, make it redeemable for something that your partner really wants or would appreciate. Foot rubbing services, romantic candlelit dinners, and even housecleaning duties are good examples. Add a printer to the mix, and you are in the Do-It-Yourself Valentine’s Day business!
Cooking for your mate is another Do-It-Yourself Valentine’s Day gift idea. It doesn’t sound that glamorous as a gift, but it means the world to those who cook everyday. Try making something exotic, something that neither of you are used to eating. If you can’t cook, then go out and buy the exotic cuisine. The point is that even if you both decide you didn’t like it, the intimacy of trying something new is forever burned into your minds and will create a memory. Spice it up with music that you wouldn’t normally listen to and exotic smelling oils or incense.
Create a collage for your sweetheart. Collect pictures of the two of you and arrange them in a photo album. Depending on your creative abilities, this can be a store bought photo album, or a handmade one. The point is to take the time to show that person that you cherish the times you have spent together.
Make a video slideshow to watch with dinner. Have it playing set to music and in the background. This adds to the ambience and generates a myriad of happy memories that the both of you can recall over your exotic meal!
Customized and personal Do-It-Yourself Valentine’s Day gifts mean a lot to those you love, and reinforces that love to both of you.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
