So, it turns out that diamond bracelets and Rolex watches are slightly expensive. And although they’re beautiful, you may be looking for something a little more out of the ordinary. Rather than saving up for an ultra expensive gift, consider giving your loved one a little taste of all the moments you’ve shared together. Create a scrapbook or collage of a bunch of pictures from your first date, all the way to the present. It’s a romantic way to recreate the past of how the two of you got to this very moment.
If you’re the opposite of artsy, take your romance in a slightly different direction.The Huffington Post suggested signing up for the wine of the month club. It’s a super easy gift and you can have high-quality wines delivered to your doorstep for however many months you would like. This brings the romance long past Valentine’s Day. Every time the wine arrives, pop it open, pour a glass and toast to your relationship.
Remember making forts as a kid? It would transform your living room into a completely awesome, cozy environment. Turns out, making forts is just as fun (if not more) as an adult. And guess what? It’s ultra romantic. And the process of making it is just as entertaining. Grab a few blankets, pillows, candles and order take out (or make a meal if you’re a chef extraordinaire) and crawl into your creation for the most intimate setting. And the best part? It won’t cost you a dime.
Some of the best date nights come from stepping out of your comfort zones. Try foods you never dreamed you would eat, drive to that new restaurant you’ve always wanted to try, take swing dancing lessons, go on a road trip … the possibilities are endless! Get together with your loved one and brainstorm a few ideas. Doing things for the first time with one another can be the perfect bonding experience and you’ll have some pretty awesome memories to look back on.
