    Jacqueline! This was awesome! As a guy we need help with stuff like this. My favorite was #5- The Historical Tour. I bet my girlfriend would love that. Thanks for the tip :)

  • Kevin Eldridge

    This is a good list and wonderful ideas. Really like the heart shaped egg idea cracked inside a piece of bread.

    Breakfast in bed would be awesome! I don’t want to toot my own horn, but I’m a pretty good cook. Which means I’m tasked with the responsibility of preparing meals almost 99% of the time. Well, it stinks. I’d like to lay around, watch television, or read countless newspapers, while someone else prepares breakfast (or dinner). And the best thing is, it doesn’t cost much.

    • Chaz

      you’re hot. I’d make you breakfast everyday in bed

  • Pokemon12

    Thank you so Much!

    this list is juz awesome!!

  • TY Gifts for her

    Great post. I’m a girl and I’m here to say “chocolates” will never be too cliched plus homemade may just add that “extra something”.

    These are awful. An overnight kit? Come on.

    • Ronald Jordaan

      Shane we see you have never experienced the response you get from that.
      believe me its priceless

    • Guest

      I could see a girlfriend really liking that overnight kit idea, actually. It shows the guy is thoughtful and thinking about her, as well as considering her comfort. That’s a winner with women, generally speaking.

  • Charles

    I did the deck of cards and put her face on every card…i did everything you said! So why did she leave me?!?! She was my queen!

    • calmdownpeople

      Lol. My point exactly.

  • Andy @ RomanticGiftsGuide.com

    Nice post! Agree all the way that it’s the thought that counts.

    Here’s another idea that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Book an artist’s studio and work on a canvas or a piece of pottery together. It’s a nice night out together, plus you’ll have the thing you created to remind her of it.

    Being a woman i understand their point of view, in their thinking extravagant gifts are always awesome. I also think that handmade gifts are also equally liked and appreciated.

    Breakfast in Bed is a good one

  • http://wealthnote.com/ Ted Levi Blackman

    I love the staycation idea. It can be really romantic to discover great new things right here in town. Especially since while we are on our date we pass places that have good memories for both of us.

  • ben

    wtf? These are all horrible cheapskate moves. you can’t even manage your life well enough to save money to go on a real date. You might as well let her pay for everything until she leaves you.

    • Guest

      I’m wondering if you have a lady at all, Ben. Breakfast in bed is anything but a “horrible” move.

    • Susejami

      This is why you sir are a single, probably divorced and very sad man. Either that or a twelve year old. Anyone can spend their money, it takes effort and THOUGHTS (hence the thoughtfulness part), to do these things.

    • dave

      you are a bellend

    • calmdownpeople

      I agree with ben. Breakfast in bed is a good START to a valentines day. But do you really think your girlfriend is going to be satisfied with JUST that? She’s going to have it in her mind that you got her something great. And later on she’s going to find out you got nothing and be pissed. In a perfect world where every woman would be satisfied with anything you get her would be great. But lets keep it real here.

        Certainly not. I also expect nookie. :-D

    When my wife and I were celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary and money was tight, I cooked her dinner with candles and a single rose. I poured inexpensive wine into the bride/groom etched champagne glasses that we had at our wedding. She loved it. We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary this year, I took those same glasses to a fancy restaurant (ahead of time) and the waiter brought them out and poured champagne into them, she cried a little bit. Money isn’t as tight these days, but it amazes me how the little things seem to touch her heart more than anything I could ever buy her.

  • 13Damage

    I actually bought a scrabble game, cut the board to fit the picture frame and glued the tiles to the board. The glass didn’t fit back on (of course), but the open face makes it more dimensional like a diorama

    These ideas prove that “it’s the thought [and effort] that counts” is true time and again. Throwing money around is easy. Being thoughtful takes effort.

    Hello,

    Yes you are right the best gift which you can gift to your girlfriend or wife is personalized playing cards, that idea is awesome.

  • Real Dude

    Ridiculous ideas. Clearly the author is not a guy. Come on people….seriously?

    • Joe

      Well, are you looking for ideas to make a guy feel special? If so, you’re on the wrong post…

    • http://op-edaily.com/ BigPun

      I don’t know if you realize it or not, but the gift ideas are from a man given to a woman.

      These are great ideas.

      • Unbeliever

        I don’t know if you realise it or not, but Jacqueline Curtis, the author, is in fact a girl.

        • http://op-edaily.com/ BigPun

          I do realize it, but I also read the article and the gift ideas are for what men should give to women.

          It kinda’ gives it away with this one: ”
          Wallet-Friendly Gift Ideas for Her”

          Kinda’ gave it away, don’t ya’ think?

          My point was that the ideas were good, regardless who wrote the article.

        • Unbeliever

          The gift ideas you refer to are FROM a woman – FOR a man – to give to a woman.

          You explicitly said they were FROM a man. Which they are not. The author is a woman. Get it?

          It kinda gives it away with this one: “By Jacqueline Curtis”.

          Kinda gave it away, don’t ya think?

          Your point basically missed the point the guy you replied to was making.

        • ThoseGuestsAreIdiots

          Who better to know what would make a woman happy, than a woman? The fact that this is written by a woman is perfectly logical. So BigPun replied perfectly fine, you my friend, missed the point.

    The most romatic gift ever I received from my BF. He have me the star from the sky. It is from Kingdom of Universe :) Love him so much!! <3

  • Maryn Mayer

    I have a sketch too! OMG! It is so breathtaking! This company is amazing. I have ordered since then too.

  • KevinWasHere

    Great ideas! May I contribute to the Date-Of-The-Month section by giving your spouse the gift of luxurious panties from “The Enclosed”. The presentation comes in a keepsake box filled with real flowers and a pair of beautiful underwear. This would be a great way to spice things up on a date night.
