Love doesn't Cost a Thing
Men often think that ladies expect red roses, fancy chocolates or expensive jewelry on Valentine's Day. I think that's because retailers plaster so many ads all over the place giving them this idea. In fact, I've heard from some men that they belive Valentine's Day was invented by store owners to ensure people spend some money after Christmas shopping is over.
Unfortunately, Valentine's Day come at a time when some are still paying off their bills from spending on Christmas gifts, so it's hard for some guys to find money for expensive gifts on yet another holiday.
The truth is we don't need expensive gifts. We'd be far more impressed with something a lot more simple, but thoughtful.
Personally, I appreciate little details in a gift.
I love gifts that remind me of a place where we spent the time together or the gifts with a hidden meaning. I think getting one rose with a handmade card attached to it is as valuable, as an expensive bouquet of roses. Especially if there is a handwritten message inside - something sweet, something that would tell me how much he values me in his life.
Anyway, I scanned iCraft for simple inexpensive handmade gifts that guys to give their sweethearts on Valentine's Day and still get them impressed.
