Valentine Ideas; Him & Her

Today is the date that my boyfriend and I have been together for 6 years! So after all this romance stuff I thought I'd get you all prepared for Valentines Day!

Like it or loath it, Valentine's Day is soon approaching. Some people find it too commercialised, which I partly agree on, but I do love the whole atmosphere of it! I'd like to point out that it's not just about partners and their relationships on Valentine's Day anymore, but in recent years it has become just as much about mothers and daughters sending cards to each other, which I think is very sweet! This means that it's not a sad day to think about what or whom you haven't got but what you have got :)

I've been with my boyfriend for 6 years now! Some people have negative opinions about young love but hey, the older generations met their first and only love at 15, why can't we?
So I've put together a post featuring 'break the budget' and 'total steal' gift ideas that may give you or your partner some inspiration this romantic holiday!

Break the Budget for Her; TIFFANY & CO.
Simon bought me a Tiffany necklace for my 21st. I've been wanting one for over a year and call me materialistic, but it was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. He waited to purchase it for my 21st which I thought was a lovely gesture as it seemed to mean more that I received it for a special occasion.

When purchasing the particular gift online, Simon was given the option of engraving - although you're only given the option of 3 letters - it's a personal touch. There are soo many different designs that you're bound to find one that catches your eye!

Steal for Him & Her; THOUGHT JAR
This idea is suitable for either male or female. but no offence, I don't think males would take the time to do this! The thought jar is a unique and quirky idea to personalize Valentine's Day, an Anniversary or Birthday!

All you need is:
A clear jar, about the same size as makeup brush storage jars
Pieces of paper
A pen

You can have as many small pieces of paper as you like! But to make it ultra cute and sweet, I've done about 25-30 : enough to keep him entertained! On each piece of paper, write what you love about your other half; their smile, laugh, the way they say a certain word, ANYTHING YOU LIKE! 
I have many personalised gifts; mouse mats, cushions, canvases, a pencil case, mugs, keyrings and jewelry! Each one has a different personal picture on and is a great way to make a memory tangible and immortal.

The BEST gift Simon bought me for our 4 Year Anniversary was a Star in Orion's Belt from the Universal Star Registry. I was given my own certificate to certify the naming of the star, a booklet and CD to show me where it was and how to locate it online and a beautiful stainless steel keyring in the shape of a star with my name, the date it was certified and the location. It was soo thoughtful and unique! There are various packages available through the Universal Star Registry and there's many different locations to choose from!
Treat for Him & Her; MEAL OUT/MEAL IN
This is probably a very popular idea amongst couples. I love a good meal out with tasty food that I cannot contemplate making at home! But I also love being at home in my onesie eating a homemade meal, made by Simon of course! Each to their own, but if you don't fancy the busy restaurants, cliche romantic couples and fancy a night in with your partner, mum or daughter, buy the ingredients at your supermarket and cosy it up at home! Plus, there's also no need to spend ages getting dolled up!
Steal for Her; FLOWERS
 Valentine's Day always screams roses. Roses are nice, but everyone gets them. I'm not saying "Don't get roses" because a huge bunch is beautiful - but also quite expensive and we're talking about finding a budget but beautiful bunch! I personally LOVE lilies and Simon always gets me a bunch with at least one lily in because he knows they're my fave :) If you want to break the cliche and stand out from everyone else, go for a bunch that reflects their personality, and what they love!
Are you planning on spending Valentine's Day with your other half or with your mum/daughter? I'd love to know what everyone's doing and whether you've stuck to the cliche's or been original!
