I love any holiday that gives us ladies an excuse to get a gift. This year is actually our first Valentines day as a married couple, so I am excited to spend it together. I love flowers, chocolates, teddy bears, jewellery, and all of the other Valentines day gifts. It really is the thought that counts for me, so whatever gift I get, whether it’s small or big is okay with me.
Is it me, or does Valentines seem like it’s a day only for the ladies. I mean I can’t really picture myself buying flowers and a teddy bear for hubby, but it doesn’t mean I would never do it. It would just feel weird because I have never purchased a Valentines gift for a guy before. If I bought something for hubby, he would probably say thanks and think to himself, why would she buy me this. How about you, have you ever bought your boyfriend or husband a gift on Valentines day? Let me know in the comments.
Everything is overpriced leading up to Valentines Day, so how can our boyfriends and husband’s save a little this Valentines Day? I’ve come up with a few ways for them to save.
1. Buy gifts in advance
The same gifts can be purchased well in advance for a much cheaper price than if it’s purchased days before Valentines Day or on the day.
2. Buy a gift online
Buying a gift online can save you some money. But please don’t send your special someone a picture of online flowers. I once heard of someone who did that. So tacky!
3. Use a coupon
I am all for coupons, I almost used one to buy hubby’s wedding band. Sites like Groupon will likely have Valentines Day deals, so check them out.
4. Make something
Gifts don’t always have to be purchased. Get creative and make something for your lovey dovey. Making a gift can go a far way, because it takes so much more time than going to a store and purchasing a gift.
5. Don’t buy gifts a drugstores
Shoppers Drug Mart always sells Valentine’s Day gifts, but you can get those same gifts at Walmart.
6. Buy flowers at grocery stores
Flowers are cheaper at grocery stores than they are at a flower shops, and you can actually get some nice flowers at higher end grocery stores.
Do you have any other ideas? Please share!
