Affordable gifts : The valentine festival

We are all glad that the Super Eagles  of Nigeria made it to the  AFCON 2013 (African Cup of Nations)  finals, what a relief and the game between Nigeria and Mali was not only entertaining but fantastic. Thumbs up to our boys. And in the international friendly England won Brazil, I guess the Barclay’s premier league  has talented British players as well. A big congratulations once again to Super Eagles perharps our special valentine gift from them to Nigeria would be the Cup of Nations. I can’t wait to rejoice if we do receive such an awesome gift from the Super Eagles. Well done to Stephen Keshi our coach and all the technical team.

Valentine gifts varies depending on the size of our pockets and what we can afford at a particular point in time. We all know that the month of January is the longest month of the year and as a result most of us may not have too much to express our love in the form of expensive gifts. In my opinion, the price of the gift does not matter so much as to the manner in which the gift is presented. A simple valentine card with a N100 or N120 chocolate as the first treat on 14th of February goes a long way to show your devotion to your woman. For instance buy a card  of N400 or less, a bar  chocolate of N100 (Mars)( and if you have more money you can buy more) send same via Courier Service be it Red star Express or EMS or whatever you choose to patronize.( Red star express charges N500 for delivery of packages within Lagos State) send same on 13th of February to be delivered  to her on 14th of February and finally send her a text on the morning of 14th of February. ( With air tel a text cost as low as N4.00) A total of  N1,000 can be spent for this special day and she will love you for it. Especially when you are dating a woman who completely understands when you are not buoyant. Now that is as low as the celebration of love can cost with a coloration of romance in it.

However, where you have the means you can go an extra mile by sending her a valentine cake, cakes and cream should have affordable cakes that can sell for as low as N3,500, have the cake delivered to her office or her class or her hostel or her house address. Buy her a dress, you can get a lovely dress for as low as N3,500, ask her to wear the dress on the evening of 14th February, buy her a nice pair of shoes and ear rings to match the dress as well as a handbag   then take her out  for a romantic dinner at an affordable restaurant. Now here are more suggestions on affordable gifts that you can buy for your woman:

Jewelry – You know how we say that diamond is a woman’s best friend, we also say that diamonds are forever. A diamond signifies that you are ready to be her best friend and you are also ready for commitment.

Picture Frame- Put a picture of  you two to preserve the shared memory and present it as a gift, most women like to reminisce the time spent with their partner. That picture will be a treasured gift to her.

Jewelry Box is another valuable gift especially when she always complains about not having a proper bag to put her jewelries.

A set of shower gel, body cream, hand cream, shampoo and hair conditioner will also  do the trick.  Other gifts which are affordable includes paying for her driving lesson if she has indicated her desire to learn how to drive, buying her a dress, buying her those shoes which she has had her eyes on for so long, hair dryer, lingerie, handbag etc.

However, what is key in buying these gift is that you need to match your woman’s taste or else she will never use the gift.
