Gift Ideas

Have you ever bought roses for a loved one on a special day such as Valentine's Day, his/her birthday, or just about any other time of the year? If you have, then you will agree, that although roses are usually great gift they can be very expensive, especially on Valentine's day. However, you can find other great gift ideas that are far less expensive.

Believe me when I say you can find really inexpensive gifts that your loved one will greatly appreciate. In this hub I will be sharing a few tips on how to come up with great gift ideas that are incredibly inexpensive and romantic.

If you really prefer the idea of giving that special person roses, but is low on cash, there are other ways to give flowers without spending a substantial amount of your paycheck. Instead of giving a dozen or half a dozen roses, how about impressing your loved one with the gift of a single red rose. This is not only an awesome gift but is also very affordable.

If the gift is for Valentine's day, some of the more popular flowers that are sold on Valentine's day are usually imported or they might be harder to come by this time of the year, as a result, they can be very costly. However, if you consider flowers that are usually less popular this is definitely another way to give flowers on Valentine's Day without having to dig deep into your pocket. Just make sure these are flowers your partner really adore. No doubt, this will definitely make a great Valentine's Day gift.

Many people might have never even thought of this, but if you give your partner potted plants or even seeds or bulbs of her favorite plants, this is also another unique and inexpensive way to give a flower related gift on Valentine's Day. This is really a great gift idea, because not only is it unusual and inexpensive, it's also a way of showing off your creativity, plus telling her that you really know her taste.

Other gift ideas for your lovely lady that she will appreciate just about any time of the year, include cooking or ordering her favorite dish and renting a few movies? This I think, is a rather romantic and inexpensive gift idea. You can even personally arrange a gift basket,or ask a friend to help you. Within this basket, you could include a few romantic movies,CDs of her favorite artists, a variety of chocolate covered nuts, strawberries covered with chocolate, heart-shaped chocolates, and a bottle of her favorite wine. This will even add more sparks to your relationship.

Finding the most romantic place for an evening out with that special someone can be rather hectic, especially if you are usually a busy person. However, you can avoid all the stress and the expense if you go for a more relaxing evening with your darling in the comfort of your own home. What could be more romantic than cuddling with him/her by the fire watching movies,while you both sip a glass of champagne or wine. You can also feed each other popcorn -- wouldn't this be lovely?


Choosing any gift whatsoever, can be difficult and time consuming. Not everyone is good at coming up with great gift ideas, and sometimes, what we think is great, may be considered somewhat mediocre or not that great in the eyes of others. However, if you are low on cash or is unable to come up with any gift ideas, I hope you will find these inexpensive romantic gift ideas very useful.

      You are so right about candlelight dinner and soft music brett -- just the two of you alone!This is a really an inexpensive and a very romantic idea. However, my advice to anyone out there who don't know how to cook, make sure you take a cooking class ahead of time or you may have to order out! Thanks for Sharing.
