5 Gifts She Actually Wants For Valentine’s Day

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

As if figuring out what to do for Valentine’s Day wasn’t hard enough, finding your significant other the perfect gift is nearly impossible. I’ve compiled a pretty solid list of some great choices for your lady that is sure to make her Valentine’s Day the best!

Diffuser

These essential oil diffusers are on the rage right now and for good reason. They are very calming and smell absolutely amazing. Get her a great set that includes the diffuser and a few different oils. I recently picked one up that is a diffuser and humidifier that I’m in love with. I’ll provide the link here.

Relaxation Kit

Another great gift would be a pamper kit. Get her a cozy blanket, some lotions, and maybe her favorite face mask. Don’t know what lotions or face masks to get her? See which ones she is using now and is running low on! If you want to really impress her, take a picture of the current products she is using and take it to your local Sephora. They will be able to recommend something new for her that will work well with the products she already has!

Book Her A Massage

If she isn’t big into pampering herself, book her a massage or facial appointment. They’ll make sure that she gets pampered plenty and is a great gesture for your Valentine’s date.

Tea/Coffee Sampler

For your drink connoisseur, explore the idea of getting her a sample set of her favorite drinks. Teavana has great sets for the tea lover in your life. Starbucks is a great place to go to for your coffee lovers. It’s a great way for her to find a new go-to drink and helps you out if you don’t remember what her current favorite is.

Precious Memory

Pick a picture from your guys’ past, frame it, and write her a little love note about your fond memory together. I guarantee that she will appreciate this gift more than anything else you could buy her. This gift shows the most thought and consideration. Best part is that it’s super simple to throw together last minute and doesn’t take much time or effort to construct.

When All Else Fails

Not great at reading signals or remembering what she mentioned she wanted? Check her Amazon cart! 🙂

I hope you found some great alternative gifts besides your standard flowers and chocolates that she will really love. Comment below what you want for Valentine’s.  I wish you all a great Valentine’s Day!

Valentine’s Day On A Budget

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

Valentine’s Day is great but also can be quite expensive. I wanted to offer some great budget friendly ideas that are quite possibly better than the traditional fancy restaurant date many people default to. These budget friendly ideas also show more thought than just making reservations. I hope you all enjoy!

Romantic Dinner

Instead of going out to a busy restaurant and spending a reasonable amount of money, consider staying home and cooking dinner for your significant other. Just cook, light some candles, shut off electronics and spending some quality time together. A wonderful and thoughtful gesture will mean more than just taking them out to a fancy restaurant and will save you some money!

Go Into Nature

Find the nearest state park or river and take a walk/hike around in nature. Getting outside and exercising with each other is a great idea for your Valentine’s Day date. Pack a picnic and find a great spot to set up and enjoy a meal outside!

Do Something You Both Enjoy

Animal lover? Take them to the animal shelter to play with the animals. Décor lover? Take them to a local antique home décor shop and explore all the great products. Coffee lover? Find a new coffeehouse they haven’t been to and order a couple drinks. You can make any part of your significant other’s likes into a great budget friendly date!

Movie Night In

Instead of going out to a movie and spending too much money on the overpriced snacks, do a movie night in with each other! Rent a movie you’ve both been dying to see, get your guys’ favorite snacks, and cuddle up on the couch. It’ll be a great way to bond and get some alone time in without breaking the bank.

Go On An Adventure

It’s been proved that taking road trips and traveling with your significant other is a rather strong bonding activity, which makes it just perfect for a budget friendly Valentine’s date. Go to the nearest big city and explore all the little shops, go for a drive around the countryside (you’ll be surprised what you could stumble upon), or go to a town you’ve both never been to and discover what makes that town special.

I hope you find these budget friendly ideas helpful for all of you on a budget this year! Hope you all have a great Valentine’s Day! Comment below with your favorite Valentine’s date you’ve had so far!
