3 – Photo Collage

Compile a collection of your favourite photos together and create a beautiful collage. Whether it’s a mix of old and new pictures or a timeline of your relationship, this visual representation of your love is a priceless and cost-free gift.

4 – Potted Plant or Flower Seeds

Plant a selection of seeds into little pots and place them around the home. Watching something bloom and flourish over time can be a lovely metaphor for your relationship. Plus, it adds a touch of nature to your loved one’s space.

5 – Homemade Sweet Treats

Bake your way into their heart with a delicious homemade treat. Whether it’s heart-shaped cookies, brownies, or cupcakes, the effort and love you put into baking will make the gesture even more special. If you love to cook, you could even prepare a full meal to suit your budget; there are dozens of ideas online.  You don’t need to be a baking expert nor does it need to be expensive – it’s the thought that counts!
