Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas


Cindy Oyervides, Reporter

      Valentine’s Day is a day to spend with someone you love. Whether you have the money to spoil your partner or not, surprising them with something is a loving thing to do. It’ll be here before you know it and if you are still debating what you should get your partner there are several simple and thoughtful things to get them.

     One thing you can get your partner is a box of chocolates. If your budget isn’t that large, get a cheap box from a store but if you have the money to buy a more expensive box that is also an option. A few other options you have if you don’t have a lot of money are a teddy bear, a loving card, or baked goods. These gifts are all cheap, easily attainable, and make a kind gesture.

     If you don’t even have money to spend on anybody, making homemade items is also an option. A simple idea that can be made right at home is a card. In the card you can personalize the message, decorate it as much as you want, and can even put candy in it for your partner.      

     Maybe crafting isn’t your strong suit so try writing a poem or loving message. There are many different types of poems you can write so choose whichever works best for you. Loving letters or messages also show your love and appreciation for whoever you’re with. Planning a romantic dinner is another great idea for Valentines Day. Cook a nice meal and invite your partner over. It won’t cost anything if the food is already in the pantry and it is simple but romantic. While it’s not a gift, watching movies or a t.v. show all night is a relaxing way to spend your Valentine’s Day if that’s what you want to do.

     Getting your partner something isn’t a requirement but it is a loving gesture. Valentine’s Day is about spending time with the one you love and reminding each other how much the other matters to you. The holiday is right around the corner and planning something to do with your partner or something to buy them should be considered if you want to make this holiday one to remember.
