Homemade Gift Ideas for a Girlfriend

Posted on :2013-02-09 in

The economy is rough these days, which can make funds tight. Or perhaps you are saving up to pop the big question and thus you need a ring. Birthdays and anniversaries are always right around the corner, even if you do have holes in your pockets. Of course you still want to give your girlfriend something special, and something that will make her happy. Luckily some of the best gifts are free to cheap to make! Here are some homemade gift ideas for your girlfriend.

 

Sentimentalize the Journey

A photo album is a great idea as it is sentimental and reminds her of all the wonderful times you have shared together. Start by gathering all those digital pictures of your fun times together and find a place that will print them out for cheap. Many places online will print them out for 9 cents or less per picture. Put the pictures in order and add notes about what you remember about that day and any momentos you kept such as ticket stubs. If you really want to be romantic, leave the last couple of pages blank, and insert a drawing or image of an event. When she asks you what it is, hand her a camera and tell her you want to make new memories right now. Take her on an inexpensive date, such as with a picnic you packed yourself, or ice skating at the local rink. Cheap and romantic!

Romance and Mood

One idea that is often talked about but rarely done is the romantic dinner. Pick out recipes ahead of time and give them a trial run or two before cooking it for her. Impress her with your kitchen skills and make romantic and easy finger foods that you can feed to each other. Also remember to set the mood. Have candles lit all around the room, have actual napkins at the table and a few flowers (which you can pick yourself if you have nice neighbors or an obliging field nearby) and really wow her. Top the evening off by whipping her up a batch of warm chocolate cookies, or chocolate dipped strawberries. Look deep into her eyes before dinner and tell her how special she is. This may not be an expensive gift, but it is one she won’t forget.

 

Poetry and Chocolate

Of course there is always the romantic poem. This can scare a lot of guys who aren’t very good with words, but there are a number of ways you can do this. Take some time and write down all the things you love about your girlfriend, from the silly to the truly romantic. Take a lot of time to do this, perhaps over weeks or even months. Compile a large list and entitle it “100 things I love about you” or whatever high number you can come up with. Hand write it or have it printed out and bound for a fairly small cost. This is a gift she can look back on whenever she wants to feel a little love.

 

These are a few ideas to help get you going. You can now see there are plenty of handmade gifts from the heart that are better than pricy gifts any day!
