Hello Loves and happy Monday!
Since Christmas is almost here I wanted to share with you some ideas for presents that mean a world and are super romantic, sweet and fun but actually don’t cost a penny (or could if you wish them to).
Those ideas for gifts are not reserved only for Christmas. It’s perfect for any occasion! Birthday, anniversary etc. Anytime you want to give something meaningful. Or maybe spent days on looking for a perfect gift but couldn’t find it, this one will make anyone happy!
It all started with the idea of a meaningful and romantic present I wanted to give my boyfriend for our first anniversary. It happens to be on 28th of December and after I spent so much money on all Christmas gifts for everyone I wanted to make anniversary gift even more special and give something handmade, straight from the heart.
What I made is I bought a small Christmas box and 12 little envelopes. One for each month of the year. I took some of my watercolour paper and cut it to size of envelopes. Each card I decorated with abstract watercolour painting.
Inside each card I wrote a love letter or a poem. So with the beginning of each month my boyfriend could enjoy a little love note from me.
Depending on occasion and person you can change absolutely anything. You can decorate the envelope as I did or just pass this step and for example buy colourful paper. You can do it fancy and buy nice box and decorations or make it from what you’re already have at home. You also don’t need a box. You can just put a bow around all the envelopes and it’ll still look great! There’re so many different ways to make this gift, mine is just an example.
Next gift idea is a little box of coupons. For this year’s anniversary I made 4 per one month for my boyfriend to draw. On each of folded cards I wrote different thing I’ll do, for example: breakfast in bed, day I won’t say “no” to you, you choose the movie etc. You can put whatever you have on mind and as many as you wish.
Also you can decorate the box with the bow or just simply put those little cards in a jar. As well as the first one, this gift you can personalise depending on the receiver.
I hope you enjoyed those simple gift ideas! I think they’re pretty romantic and with those coupons you can also spice up your relationship 😉 or bring a little bit more adventure!
Merry Christmas! ❤
