My boyfriend knows how much I love red roses, but he also knows how often they're left unattended by our busy selves. They're pretty and usually inexpensive, but they just sit in a vase in his bedroom till they die.
We had the bright idea of cutting the dead rose petals off and placing them in a jar for decoration before but they become moldy and gross. In the end, it's kind of a waste of time and overall money that could've been used for something else.
Instead, I'd rather have practical, yet affordable gifts. I'm sure there's a lot of girls out there who feels the same way as I do, so boys, listen up. Here are 7 gifts you can get your valentine.
1. A gift card
Get her a gift card to her favorite shop! Doesn't have to be a crazy amount, just enough for her to get herself something nice. Takes the guess work out of gift-getting anyways.
2. Personalized gift
Nothing feels more personable than a personalized gift! I recently discovered a site called Uncommon Goods and they're a great place to find random gifts as well as personalized gifts for your boo.
3. DIY something
This is just as personal as a purchased personalized gift from a website. This sh*t comes from the heart and she's gonna eat it up.
4. A scrapbook
Either you create one of all your guys' best, precious memories or you get her one so she can do it herself!
7. Fake red roses
If you must get her red roses, then at least get her ones that won't die after a few days!
