If it is your fiancee’s birthday or it is some other holiday where you need to give a gift, you may find yourself at a loss for what to do. Giving gifts usually only gets harder the longer you are together – what are you supposed to get someone when you have already spent so many holidays together?
Fret not – there are plenty of gifts that you can give. Some of these things don’t cost all that much money or take that much time. Remember that it is always the thought behind the gift, not the cost of it. Here are some creative options:
A Wedding Dance Class
If you have a fiancee, there is a chance that you want to get married at some point. One of the best gifts that you can give is a wedding dance class in Toronto. You may not be the best dancer and you probably don’t want to make a fool out of yourself in front of the people that you know and love. Many women, in particular, want to take dance classes before their wedding, but they are afraid to ask.
Surprise your fiance by signing up for a class and then do the prep work. Get them a new outfit for the class, pick out some songs that you want to dance to, and maybe even sign up for a few other dance classes to get ready for the big day.
A Love Letter
Who doesn’t love a good letter? This is the kind of gift that you won’t give all that often, but it is important to mean it when you give it. Take some time out of your day, sit down with a pen and paper, and get writing. Don’t be afraid to do a few drafts. You can do those drafts on your computer, but ensure that you write the original in long-form. This makes it more personal and your fiancee will love your handwriting. (Even if you have chicken scratch, this is important. Try your best to make it legible.)
To make it even more personal, you can buy special paper, spray it with your perfume or cologne, or get a frame for it. There are just so many things that you can do to make this more than a simple letter.
A Good Meal
Another option is to give your fiancee a good meal. This could be a meal that you yourself have cooked, something you’ve ordered in, or something from a restaurant. There is a lot of wiggle room here. The thing you want to do is ensure that it is filled with foods that they like, it is cooked to perfection, and you add some romance to the night. This could mean lighting some candles, getting dressed up, or taking the food out of the delivery containers.
If your fiancee has a specific type of food that they like, consider that as a starting point. However, you can be as creative as you want here.
A Coupon Book
It may seem silly or childish, but a coupon book is always a great gift to give because it is the gift that keeps giving. Your coupon book can say anything or everything – from as innocent as “take my car for a fill up” to something a bit more romantic and flirty. There are no limits to what your coupon book can contain.
You may also want to set up some boundaries for these coupons. For example, you may want to say that only one can be redeemed per day. You can buy these books, but it is even more fun to make your own book. A great idea is to put them on a deck of cards since they already come perfectly fitted to a box.
A Full Day Without Technology
Another great gift to give is a day without technology. If you are the type of person who likes to play video games or sit on your phone, offering a full day without technology can be a great gift. This may mean locking your phone away or it could mean going for a hike or a bike ride without a focus on your phone. It could mean not watching a movie at home but going for a movie date. You are the person who will have to set the boundaries for what a day “without” technology means.
These are just a few ideas for romantic gifts that you can give to your fiancee. There are plenty of others out there if you just look. Remember to put time and effort into it and if it is a gift where you need to go somewhere and do something, you absolutely need to show up and be an active participant.
