VALENTINE’S DAY IS FAST APPROACHING AND IT’S THE PERFECT EXCUSE TO SHOW A LITTLE LOVE. HERE ARE FIVE GORGEOUSLY THOUGHTFUL AND INEXPENSIVE GIFTS FOR SOMEONE WHO WANTS TO ADD THE PERSONAL TOUCH.
1. A Love Poem
At Just Happy Tears, we understand that words are everything. They come from the soul. So what better way to say ‘I love you’ than with a love poem written from the heart for your other half. It can be four lines or two pages, it doesn’t matter… going to the effort of collecting and documenting your beautiful memories and special moments is something that your Valentine will cherish forever. If you can’t write it yourself… Just Happy Tears will help you out!!
2. Memory Box
A Memory Box is a beautiful way to revisit your special memories. Gather old ticket stubs, boarding passes, pictures, cards and other sentimental little bits you’ve kept throughout your relationship. There are so many different ways to put a memory box together and here are some of them. Your memory box is forever. Add to it year after year and soon you’ll have a beautiful box bursting with wonderful memories.
3. Date Box
Pick twelve different dates ideas - one for each of the 12 months ahead. Put each one in an envelope and seal it with the name of a month written on it. On the first day of each month have your Valentine open one envelope and then arrange your date together. This is such a unique, thoughtful and easy to create gift and the great thing is... it can be as expensive or inexpensive as you like. Think of anything from hotel/restaurant vouchers to a simple walk in the park with a hot chocolate afterwards. For some more ideas see www.getdatebox.com
4. A Photobook
Similar to a memory box, a photobook is a lovely way of revisiting memories that mean a lot to you and your Valentine. Arrange your photobox in chronological order to take a walk down memory lane. My Photobook.ie can help you out with this!
5. A Map of the World
People who love to travel will love this idea. It’s cheap, easy and really thoughtful. Buy a map of the world and some stickers in two different colors. Highlight the places you’ve traveled to with your Valentine in one color and the places you’d like to travel to with your Valentine in a different color. Each time you make it to one of your destinations, change the sticker! If you’re feeling really adventurous you can have your map personalized!
