Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Her on a Budget

disclosure

Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Her on a BudgetIf you’re looking to buy your girlfriend or wife something really nice and thoughtful for Valentine’s Day, but your funds don’t quite match your ideas, don’t panic! All that it means is that you may have to work just a teeny bit harder, and get creative to show her you care.

Chances are, she’ll love the fact that you’ve even remembered, but if you do want to sweep her off her feet, we’ve come up with some ideas to do so on a tight budget.

A keepsake

Something sentimental that she can keep forever is sure to be a winner, and doesn’t have to cost the earth, either. You can pick up things like token love hearts with your initials on, quite cheaply and in most gifts stores/websites. Anything that is a matching set that you can both have one of is also a good idea, like silver key rings for example.

A personalised print

These also don’t have to be massive or expensive. In fact, you can pick up cute or funny ones at gettingpersonal.co.uk. If you want to go for a funny one, choose a daft picture of the two of you and a funny quote for underneath to make her laugh….

High Quality Artificial Christmas Trees at King of Christmas

Giveaway Bandit Disclosurequality artificial christmas treesHigh Quality Artificial Christmas Trees

Putting up a Christmas tree has always been a tradition in our family as I am sure it has been for many of you. I always look for high quality artificial Christmas trees that will last for many years. King of Christmas offers a wide variety of pre-lit, unlit and LED Christmas trees in any height you need. You are sure to find the perfect tree to fit your budget.

King of Christmas sent us a six-foot unlit Scarlet Fir Christmas Tree. It arrived within a few days. I couldn’t believe how quickly it arrived! Here are some of the features of the tree we received:

  • Premium quality
  • Just like a real tree
  • Strong branches
  • Hinged construction
  • Flame retardant
  • PE-PVC material

When I opened the box it contained simple instructions, three sections of tree and a stand. I quickly assembled the stand and easily attached each piece of the tree. I was so excited to receive an unlit tree since I have had issues with lights on pre-lit trees in years past. The tapered branches of the tree have a velvety appearance and the tips are very realistic. I love how easy the branches were to pull down and transform into such a gorgeous tree.King of Christmas

I had already decorated our large tree in our front living room so I decided to put this one in our other living room. I had the perfect place for it too. I decided to make this more of a primitive style tree with accents of red. I used my cute Primitives by Kathy willow twig garland lights on the tree and they were absolutely perfect for it. I love to decorate Christmas trees. Be creative. You can decorate your tree however you choose to fit your personality and home….

Live Christmas Wreaths from Christmas Forest

Live Christmas WreathsLive Christmas Wreaths from Christmas Forest

I absolutely love live Christmas wreaths and the beauty they bring to your home. Christmas Forest sent me the Winter Wonderland wreath and it is absolutely beautiful! When my wreath arrived I was impressed by the packaging. It was in a large box and the wreath was wrapped in a plastic bag with the bow in another bag separate. This wreath was inspired by the classic “White Christmas”. The bow came with a wire that was very easy to attach to the wreath. I love the white and gold colored brocade style bow. It is gorgeous!

The wreath also had pine cones on it that they had given a hint of gold. It gives you the feeling of an old-fashioned Christmas which I love. The wreath is 25″ in diameter and easily fit on our front door. Every time you open the door you smell the fresh scent of the live Christmas wreaths. I love it! I love that all of their wreaths are always forest fresh. The wreath I received retails for $48 but they offer many live Christmas wreaths for under $40. They are so affordable.

The wreath is very well made and it is said they will last approximately three weeks outside which is perfect for Christmas. You can put it up the first part of December and still have a gorgeous wreath for Christmas day. The wreaths are made of long lasting noble fir and other Pacific Northwest evergreens. …
