….when you are on a limited budget!!! It is that time of year to show your affection with your lover or significant other.
Enjoy MY simply and fun ideas!
It can be as simple as a home-made card from construction paper,printer paper or decorative paper you may have at home.
Bake or buy them what they love…a pie,a cake,brownies,cookies.Or even a simple yummy muffin.Add a note card like “To My Stud MUFFIN”.
Make a bottle of massage oil simply buy almond oil,jojoba or grape seed oil.Attach a tag to it and ribbon with hearts or lips.Write that they are going to get a sensual massage from you.
Buy some Hershey’s kisses chocolate in the kind they like:Dark chocolate, milk chocolate,with almonds and more. Lay the kisses down with rose petals and make a trail from when they open the door to the bedroom. Or you can simply do this on the bed.
Another D.I.Y. you can do is make a jar of aromatic relaxing bath salts.Add a candle and you’re good to go.
Flowers are fabulous but so very expensive this time of year especially.Buy him or her a useful plant like rosemary,mint or fresh parsley.They are magic in the kitchen and plants purify the air.
Nothing says “I LOVE YOU” like strawberries gilded in chocolate,nuts and or sparkling shades of gold,red or pink sugar.He or she will swoon and love you for this edible gift.
Champagne is out Prosecco is in! And the best part it is cheaper.
There is nothing like a handwritten LOVE letter! Write like you mean it and on paper.Not a text message please. I have done this to my husband and I must tell you he LOVED it. The look on his face said it all. He still has it. If is is too much for you to do…try a note on the mirror made with a simple soap bar and write the words “I LOVE you” or any short message or words that mean something special to the two of you.
If you have a few bucks treat them to a Passion Fruit Facial by Skin Spa by Casey at Jacksonville Beach. Everyone needs pampering! The skin will look amazing!
Don’t have money for a date on the town? Set up a picnic in bed or throw a pretty throw or blanket on the living room floor.Prepare a simple cheese tray with crackers or a rustic fresh bread.Add music and a cocktail. Feed each other grapes and enjoy the night kissing away!
If you don’t have money for a sexy chocolate sauce from those types of stores….try a simple bottle of Justin’s Hazelnut spread.You know what to do.Lick the night away!
If you do have some money and you want to spring…make HIS or HER heart sing with a custom bottle of perfume or cologne …JUST FOR THEM! http://www.blendcustomparfum.com
I once found a REAL key at the hardware store that was white with a set of lips on it. I wrapped it in a big box with a V-day type ribbon and bow. I wrote a message with it that read “you have the key top my heart forever”. He got such a kick out of it.
I hope these ideas… help fuel your imagination for the perfect gift!
If you don’t have a Valentine maybe it is time to be your own Valentine and treat yourself to something delightful.
