Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Tight Budget

Did you know that men in the UK spend on average £26 on Valentine’s Day Gifts for their other half?

Do you fall in this category or are you trying to stretch your budget even further and get something on a cheaper side?

The good news is that there is plenty to choose from even though your budget is pretty limited.

Here are few tips to keep in mind before you start shopping:

1. What does she like?

Get your priorities right and find out what she likes.

Is it chocolates? Flowers? Fancy lingerie? Jewelry? Or a combination of all of these?

She might love shoes and handbags, but let’s be honest – who wants to take the risk of buying the wrong shade, shape or size?

2. Pick one you can buy cheaper without compromising quality

Pick one of her favourite things that you’re comfortable buying on the cheap.

Let’s be clear – cheap lingeries is certainly not one of them.

You can save a lot of money on flowers or chocolate if you’re ordering them online, plus you’ll score extra points by having these delivered and surprising her at home or at work.

3. Packaging and Card

One thing your lady will certainly appreciate is the fact you took care and packed the gift yourself. Also hand written cards with a personal message will make a good impression. If you’re giving her flowers, add a vase to go with it so that she can display it proudly on her office desk or in the living room.

4. Good Deal and cheap looking Gifts

There is a difference between getting a good deal on quality product, and buying a cheap product of very bad quality.

Make sure what you’re getting is from a reliable shop or brand.

If you’re buying flowers, avoid the supermarket ones as that will make an impression that you picked them up as last minute thought while doing your weekly shopping. Have flowers delivered instead – that will show some preparation and planning on your side, plus every lady loves a little surprise when she expects it least.

5. Buying a Gift for Man

If you’re buying a gift for your man and want to save, bet your money on his appetite.

As they say a way to man’s heart is through his stomach, so you can never go wrong with some gourmet hampers or a home cooked meal with some more exotic and romantic twist.

Here are also some particular suggestions from SerenataFlowers.com, all with free delivery so you won’t pay a penny extra for your gift:
