Thoughtful and budget-friendly gifts can be just as meaningful and heartfelt as extravagant ones.

Handwritten love letter

Nothing beats the charm of old-school romance and there's something incredibly romantic about a handwritten love letter. Take the time to pour your heart out on paper, expressing your feelings and gratitude for your partner. Share special memories, inside jokes, and reasons why you love them. It's a timeless and deeply personal gift that your partner will cherish forever. 

Homemade treats

Instead of splurging on expensive chocolates or gourmet desserts, why not make something special yourself? Bake cookies, cupcakes, or brownies and decorate them with love. You can even package them in a cute box or jar and add a handwritten note. Homemade treats show that you've put effort and thought into creating something delicious just for them.

DIY coupon book

Create a personalised coupon book filled with thoughtful gestures and experiences. Include coupons for a romantic dinner at home, a movie night of their choice, a relaxing massage, or a day of pampering. Tailor the coupons to your partner's interests and preferences, and let them redeem them throughout the year.

Memory jar

Gather memories and moments shared together by creating a memory jar. Fill a decorated jar with handwritten notes recalling special times, milestones, and inside jokes. Your partner can pick out a note whenever they need a reminder of your love and the wonderful moments you've shared. You can even present it in the form of a scrapbook. Gather your special photos together and relive the memories of your time with your partner. 

Personalised playlist

Curate a playlist of songs that hold significance in your relationship. Specialised playlists are one of the most trending gifts in modern times. Include tracks that remind you of special moments, milestones, or simply songs that you both enjoy. Share the playlist with your partner and take a trip down memory lane together while enjoying the music.

Indoor picnic

Instead of going out for an expensive dinner, plan a cosy indoor picnic at home. Lay out a blanket, prepare some simple but delicious snacks, and light candles to set the mood. Enjoy each other's company in the comfort of your own home without worrying about the cost of a fancy restaurant.

Romantic movie night

Plan a romantic movie night at home complete with popcorn, cosy blankets, and their favourite films. Create a lineup of romantic movies or their favourite genres, and spend the evening cuddled up together on the couch. It's a simple yet intimate way to celebrate your love without spending a lot.

Plant or flower

Give the gift of nature by gifting your partner a plant or a single flower. Choose a plant that's easy to care for and will brighten up their space, or pick out their favourite flower as a symbol of your love. It's a thoughtful and budget-friendly gesture that will bring joy for weeks to come. This not only makes for a thoughtful gift, but also displays a symbol of showing your partner that you are ready for joint responsiblity and commitment.
