5 Valentine’s Day Gifts That Won’t Break The Bank

By hampers

Get ready to board the love boat as Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! Mark the 14th of February in your calendar; you would hate to disappoint your significant other by showing up without a Valentine’s Day Gift. Social Media has caused unrealistic expectations of Valentine’s Day, that are unable to be achieved without forking out the exorbitant amount of money. Expensive dinners, couple massages, fancy cocktails, flashy jewellery, and handcrafted chocolates are romantic and all, but come with a hefty price tag. Chocolate and roses are not the only way to show some love to your special person. At Hampers With Bite, we believe in the act of giving means more than the actual gift itself. We have put together a list of thoughtful Valentine’s Gifts that will not break the bank. 

1. Spoil Them With Breakfast In Bed 

Valentine's Day Breakfast in Bed

There is no better way to start the day than enjoying a homecooked breakfast in bed. A meal cooked by another always tastes better than cooking ourselves, especially when it is made with love. We suggest going beyond just toast and cereal, try something a little sweet like pancakes, French toast, or a smoothie bowl…with a side of coffee and OJ of course. Preparing breakfast in bed is a simple yet effective way to let them know you love them this Valentine’s Day. 

2. Create A Romantic Oasis At Home

Set the mood by creating a romantic oasis for you and your partner at home. Due to the pandemic, many will be celebrating Valentine’s Day from home, so it is time to get creative. That fancy restaurant, cocktail bar or movie you originally planned cost you a fortune. When it comes to decorating, we suggest using lots of red decorations, rose petals and heart-shaped objects. Set up a comfy and cosy area to spend the evening with pillows, rugs and lots of candles! Order in your favourite takeaway and pop on your favourite Rom-Com. What better way to spend Valentine’s Day in the comfort of your own home?! 

3. Get Creative Putting Together A Memory Book

Creating a homemade memory is an affordable alternative to purchasing a professional memory book and will be a Valentine’s Day Gift that will mean more to your partner. Whether it has been one year or ten years, compile a bunch of your favourite photos of fun memories and put them into a memory book. You can prepare the book ahead of time to present them to on Valentine’s Day or collect the images and make the memory book together. There is nothing more romantic than spending Valentine’s Day, reflecting on all the special times you have spent together. 

4. Show Off Your Cooking Skills

Didn’t get a reservation to their favourite fancy restaurant? You can still indulge in a romantic dinner from the comfort of your own home. Prepare each other’s favourite meals from entrée, main and dessert. Spice up the evening by both dressing up as if you were going out, that way you feel your best. Make sure you set the table professionally and add some candles into the mix. A home-cooked meal means so much more, you won’t waste money on public transport or Uber, and you can enjoy each other’s company in the privacy of your own home. Who wouldn’t want this type of Valentine’s Day Gift?

5. Rom-Coms & Cocktails

Go beyond ‘Netflix and chill’ and incorporate homemade cocktails to your movie marathon. Cocktail at a bar can be so expensive; be surprised how much you save by merely recreating cocktails at home. Keep it personal by creating each other’s favourite cocktails, taking you back to unforgettable memories spent together. When it comes to the movie selection, why not watch each other’s favourite movies, or select one of our favourite Romantic Classics and Romcoms below

  1. The Notebook
  2. Fifty First Dates
  3. Valentine’s Day
  4. 10 Things I Hate About You
  5. The Wedding Singer

A Valentine’s Day Gift is great, but showing your significant other that you care should not just be done on Valentine’s Day. These gestures may take effort, but they are savvy ways to celebrate your special relationship on any other day of the year.
