Finding a great gift to give your loved ones can be difficult, especially on Valentine’s Day. Luckily, whether you’re looking for a gift to give to your children, friends, or colleagues, Vista Higher Learning has five affordable and personal gift ideas for you!
#1- Home-Baked/Decorated Cookies
Who doesn’t love homemade treats? Baking and decorating cookies is simple, and your loved ones are sure to love that it came from you instead of the supermarket. Get creative and write quotes or make designs that are specially tailored to the people receiving the treats. There’s no doubt this will put a smile on their faces!
#2- Personalized Mug
Another unique gift idea is getting your friends or colleagues personalized mugs! There are several ways to go about this. Some options include buying colored mugs at a local store and decorating them yourself, personalizing the mugs online, or buying pre-designed mugs that represent something your loved ones enjoy. No matter how it’s done, this is always a great idea.
#3- Fuzzy Socks & Candy
A small yet cute Valentine’s Day gift idea is giving your loved ones fuzzy socks paired with a bag of their favorite candies and chocolates. This idea is not only affordable, but it also reminds the people receiving it that you are thankful for them.
If your friend or colleague is a reader, a splendid gift is a book in their favorite genre or by a beloved author. If this sounds like something that someone you know would love, try finding out what books they’re looking forward to reading. Another great twist is finding a special edition of a novel they already own. You can go wrong with gifting a bibliophile a book!
You also can’t really go wrong with clothing. Consider giving your friends or children a T-shirt, cardigan, blouse, or maybe a pair of jeans. If you know their style and what they like, consider taking a trip to the mall or browsing online. Cyber-shopping is especially easy, and if you know which stores your loved ones like to shop at, this is even better!
