February 14th is the day when couples celebrate love and romance. If you are overwhelmed by love and giving gifts, then you surely plan a nice way to surprise your loved one. Instead of buying a whole pre-wrapped gift, you can buy one basic thing and add a touch of creativity to make the gift more special. The gift doesn’t have to be expensive to be memorable, it just need to be given with love. Here are some romantic Valentine’s day gift ideas which will help you to create unforgettable and memorable night.
Valentine’s day gift idea #1: Recreate your first date
The first date is always sentimental and unforgettable. If you’re together for a long time, maybe you’ve already forgotten the details of your first date. To refresh your memory and restore the passion that you felt then, recreate the evening when you’ve met and talked for the first time. Book a table at the restaurant where you went for your first date or sit at the same spot at the bar where you first talked and had a drink. Even if your first date wasn’t that romantic and wonderful, you now have a second chance to correct it and to have a really unforgettable night.
Valentine’s day gift idea #2: Photo album of your relationship
Gather pictures from different occasions when you were together and had a fantastic time. Choose the best and arrange them in a lovely photo album in chronological order. Do not fill the entire album, fill just a half of it. You’ll fill the blank pages of the other half together with photos of the years that will come. On the inside cover write something special and personal from the heart. You can also fill the album with little things that are connected to wonderful memories, like the movie tickets when you had an amazing time or you can press a flower that he/she randomly picked and gave to you on a romantic walk in the park etc, just fill the album with beautiful memories of your relationship.
Valentine’s day gift idea #3: Love notes
With these love notes you’ll promise your loved one that you’ll do whatever the note says whenever he/she wants it. Take a beautiful paper and cut it in small hearts or any shape that you want, you can make as many love notes as you like. On each love note write something that you’ll do like a kiss, going for a romantic walk, going to the movies, going to dinner, having a bath together etc, things that you’ll do when your partner hands you the note back. Tie them with a red ribbon and give them to your partner. If you already have a gift, these love notes can be a great addition to the Valentine’s day gift. It will depend on your partner when he/she will decide to use the love notes.
