Giving Love on Christmas Day

Dec 27, 2007
If you have a sweetheart, St. Valentine's Day is not the only day when you can show your love to him or her by giving material presents. The Holiday season is of no exception! Now, you don't need to scour the malls just for a bouquet of flowers. Why do that when you have a lot of other options? Just choose if you want to go along giving the usual and traditional gifts or against it.

Traditional gift ideas

A box of chocolates is literally one sweet gift. Since this is an obvious gift, try to make it unique by choosing pretty boxes in unusual but well-matched colors. Else you could make the chocolates yourself. Though it is more time-consuming trying to perfect the recipe, knowing that your efforts will put a smile on his or her face is worth it. You can put in letters made of chocolate that spell out both of your names for a more special present. Make sure that your beau is not allergic to any of the ingredients.

A bouquet of flowers is not a very natural gift to a guy. But somehow, it is far more unique. Again, make sure that neither of you and your sweetie is allergic to a certain kind of flower.

A cute and cuddly stuff toy is a great gift for the ladies, especially huge and huggable ones. On the other hand, girls could give their man little stuff toys. There are even stuff toys that you could hang as key chains. Once more, ensure that your love is not allergic to fluffy stuffed animals.

A pricey piece of jewelry is usually given to girls and most of the time the so-called gift is a ring. But if you think that you are the type of couple that is spontaneous and fun, a less serious option would be bracelets or necklaces with matching pendants.

Personalized gift ideas

A jar filled with little pieces of paper with sweet-nothings written on it is a very charming gift idea. It costs very much cheaper than anything else on this list and yet it could come close to the sweetness of a box of chocolates. You can write different thoughtful messages on 365 little pieces of paper. Then he or she could read them first thing every morning without repeating a single sentence except "I love you".

Memories compiled in a slideshow or a scrapbook can be an exasperating gift to give. You have to gather ideas on how the lay-out on each page should look. But still, it will be a fun project. And in the end, your sweetheart will absolutely be delighted. Be resourceful and creative to keep you from spending a lot.

A young puppy or a baby plant for a pet is one adorable idea for a present. It is like raising a child of your own without ever going through getting pregnant and giving birth. Both of you can start practicing smart parenting. The only con is that you will have to spend for the maintenance.

A chic bracelet handmade by you may be tiresome. But you can always copy a design or else just try to combine all materials together. And all you will ever have to buy are beads and a band to string them in. In many ways, it is indeed more special than the store-bought ones.
