There are a thousand different ways to say ‘I love you’ to that certain someone, so when a special occasion comes around there should be no shortage of ideas. The good news for those who are on a budget is that you don’t have to spend a small fortune to make a large impact, especially if you’re prepared to make an effort with creativity. Here are some ideas that will move the earth but won’t cost the earth.
Receiving a parcel via a courier is always a special treat, and it can be extra-special if there is a romantic gift inside. A foil balloon in the shape of a heart represents a new twist on an established classic, so why not send one today to your loved one? If he or she is currently located somewhere far away, a balloon will send a message of love that will remain in the memory for a long time. For an added bonus, it can be personalized with a message and the name of the recipient.
Personalized gifts are always that bit more special, especially if it took a little effort to create. A collage made up of meaningful photographs from recent times can create a truly spectacular effect, and in some cases the larger the collage the more impressive it looks. It’s a good idea to ensure there are no gaps, and if possible it’s best to include images from a number of different places and occasions.
This particular idea shows the recipient just how much you are thinking of them, especially if you make an effort to include items that are particularly well-liked. Fill the box with romantic items such as chocolates, sweets, biscuits and other foodstuffs, as well as a single red rose and a music compilation of her most favorite romantic songs. Remember, the box needs to be securely packaged, and you need to make sure you use a next day courier so the rose does not whiter.
On a similar theme, a picnic basket containing a wide selection of tasty treats will also hit the spot. As well as foodstuffs, you could also include personalized plates and cups to make the gift even more individual. You might also want to include an invitation to a picnic on a specified date in a highly romantic location, so you and the recipient can take the basket out on its very first excursion.
Personalized Canvas Print
A perfectly matched couple will invariably share many happy memories, and nothing accentuates this more than a personalized canvas print. Get your favorite picture of you and your other half and have it printed on a canvas, and inscribed with personal messages of unbridled love. Some may choose to record a favorite poem, the exact time and date when the pair first met, or perhaps they day they got married. As always, the choice is entirely up to you.
Jewelry has always been a popular choice when giving a gift, especially when there is a special occasion in the air. Sending a loved one such an item via a courier is a great way to add a little anticipation, so if you’re dispatching a ring to Rome, a bracelet to Birmingham or a necklace to New York, you should have the item inscribed first. Such a gift would be considered so special it will surely never be forgotten.
