Valentine’s day is celebrated on 14th of February every year, commemorating the love of Saint Valentine for his beloved, daughter of a jailer, in whose jail he was lodged subsequent to orders by Emperor Claudius II of Rome. This day’s celebration was started at the time of Roman empire and it speaks for love and romance for all love-birds. This day gives them a chance to express their feelings and emotions. Presently, this day brings up a huge craze among the youth crowd all over the world. They start planning for the expression of their love, emotions and celebrations much before the actual day. Those in love plan for their lovers and those without a lover find a date so that they are able to celebrate that day in a much romantic way. They give each other roses, cards, hearts and also plan for an outing such as a candle light dinner, movie, party etc. While markets get flooded with roses, hearts, cards etc. with special events planned in commercial areas like shopping malls, one has to make this day a success while keeping a watch on his pocket in this present economy. Deciding on an inexpensive Valentines Day gifts which also make the desired impact can be a tough activity to undertake.
Talking of the expressions, writing a love poem or love letter for one’s Valentine is a great success and it hardly costs anything. One may not be a great writer but penning down the emotions on paper would really be appreciated. Just a rosebud and an e-card is also a good gesture. One can always go for something handmade as it is always appreciated. One can also go for something that he/ she would want such as a watch, books, ornaments, jewelry etc. that are easily available on Amazon and eBay according to one’s budget. A variety of affordable and romantic gifts are available there. Going for a romantic movie that his/her partner would like, can also be considered since the partners get a chance to spend time together. Gift vouchers from malls and restaurants could be of great help. One can then buy stuff of own choice. Another inexpensive way is by cooking the partner’s favorite food at home and serving a candle light dinner as compared to going to a restaurant for the same which can burn a hole in the pocket. An evening of a romantic music to one’s favorite place or presenting a timeless favorite love songs album in the form of DVD or CD, is also a good idea. For long distance relationship, it is best to buy seven cards and send them one by one in such a manner that the first one is received seven days prior to Valentine day. One can also prepare a collage of all the photographs of memorable moments in a form of card and can present to one’s beloved.
For the not so creative-minded, websites like Amazon offer many gifts online on very affordable prices ranging from 4$ to 25$ which includes a variety of heart shaped pendants, bracelets, rings, toe rings and many more like garments, love quotes in the form of cards, perfumes,cologne etc. After all one has to somehow express his/her love in any form with some means which make the great day of their lives a most memorable one – the Valentine’s Day.
