Forgot its already valentine’s day and your significant other will kill you if they don’t get a gift? Yeah, that happens to millions of people every year. Hopefully, this quick gift guide will help save your life if you haven’t got a gift already. Most of these gifts will require you to go to the store and are hopefully within a decent price range.
1. Flowers & Chocolates
Of course, this is going to be the most generic gift idea, but it always wins the hearts. This gift idea will only cost you around $30 dollars as long as you know where to look. You can even find these gifts at Walgreens, Rite Aid, or any corner store so it makes finding them extremely easy. The gift can get even better if you know your lovers favorite flower as it shows you remember what they like. Maybe try to hint at what flowers they like and see if you get an answer! If not, roses always are the best option in these scenarios.
2. Homemade Cards
This idea can take a little time but its extremely cheap and is from the heart making it so much better. Even if the card looks terrible your lover will have to act like they love it, so either way, it is a win-win situation. To make the card even better try to think of one of the better moments in your relationship such as your first date, your first kiss, or maybe just something you joke about all the time and write about it in the card. If you know how to draw maybe even try to recreate the scenario in the card!
3. Cook a Homemade Meal
This is a good option if you are trying to get dinner reservations on the day of valentine’s day cause it virtually will not happen. Try to come up with the favorite meal of your lover and try to the best of your ability not to burn it. Even if it comes out horrible your lover will still love it since it came from the heart. The best way to make sure you don’t mess up is to make things that are premade such as biscuits or Italian bread, so if dinner does go up in flames you can still eat something edible.
4. Jewelry or Tickets to a Show
If you want to follow this route you better have some money. Buying someone jewelry will always keep you on their good side, it is just a matter of what they need. For new lovers, you can always get a promise ring, earrings, bracelets, or a necklace. For people who have bought more jewelry then Kim Kardashian, buying tickets to a Broadway show or concert always give you both something to look forward too. If you are even luckier you can even get it for the same weekend so it looks like you didn’t forget. Both of these gifts can be purchased in a matter of minutes with the tickets being done on your phone and jewelry all you have to do it go into a jeweler, but don’t be surprised to pay a little more.
5. Stuffed Animals
Best way to win someone over is through stuffed animals. For those of you who have animal nicknames for each other go into a Rite Aid or Walgreens and find that animal. Most stores pack their shelves up with stuffed animals around Valentine’s day. If you don’t have names for each other try to find an animal your lover likes. The idea of remembering what they like always help win them over. Let’s be real who doesn’t like the face of a puppy stuffed animal.
