Last Minute Green Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas
You had a busy week. You meant to buy something very special and very romantic but you never made it to the store. And now, you realize Valentine’s Day is Monday. What will you buy for your “better” half? Read on and see how you can make this year’s Valentine’s Day, unforgettable, inexpensive, and, oh yeah, rockin’ green!
There’s nothing more romantic and inexpensive (and green) than a massage from you. Dim the lights, get out the soy candles and the essential oil. Spend quality time kneading out those nasty knots from your partner’s tense muscles. It not only saves about $120 for an hour massage, but who knows what will a great massage will lead to?
2. Buy a pot of live plant
I know it’s not a dozen red roses but a live plant will live so much longer than a dozen red roses. And it will detox indoor air quality, making it a healthier gift.
Depending on where you live, you can easily pack up a nice little basket and go off to a place where you’ve never been before and have a real picnic. Nothing fancy or exotic. Just good old lunch basket with some wine and cheese and your charming personality will do just fine. If the weather doesn’t permit an outdoor picnic, why not on the living room floor?
What? Yes. You heard me. Take one day this weekend and clean the house for her. How hard can that be? She does it every week. Tell her to take the day off and let her watch T.V. with the kids. You do the cleaning.
5. Make a music CD
Do they drive to work? Do they run with their iPod? Make a collection of meaningful songs for their iPod or record them on a CD. Include songs that will make them think of you, songs that will make them run faster, songs that will put a smile on their face when they drive to work, and songs that will make them want to come home faster.
Spending quality time together is what Valentine’s Day is about, isn’t it? Make it memorable.
How are you spending this green Valentine’s Day?
