News

These ideas are not only budget-friendly but also thoughtful and personal, perfect for showing your appreciation to friends, family, or that special someone without emptying your wallet this Valentine’s Day. 

Handwritten Love Letters: There’s something incredibly romantic and timeless about a handwritten love letter. Take the time to express your feelings in a heartfelt note. You can personalize it with memories, inside jokes, or reasons why you cherish the person. It’s a simple yet meaningful gesture that is sure to be treasured.

DIY Photo Album or Scrapbook: Gather your favourite photos together and create a personalized photo album or scrapbook. You can add captions, stickers, and decorations to make it unique. This gift allows you to reminisce about special moments shared together and showcases the depth of your relationship.

Homemade Treats: Whip up some homemade treats like cookies, brownies, or cupcakes in your private kitchenette or Communal kitchen at McComb Students. Put your baking skills to the test and package them in a cute box or jar tied with ribbon. Handmade goodies are always appreciated, and they show that you’ve put time and effort into creating something special – 

Customized Playlist: Create a playlist of songs that hold significance to your relationship or reflect your feelings. You can compile a mix of favourite tunes, meaningful lyrics, or songs that remind you of shared experiences. This thoughtful gift allows you to share the gift of music and create lasting memories together.

Personalized Artwork: Tap into your artistic side and create a piece of personalized artwork. Whether it’s a painting, drawing, or collage, infuse it with elements that resonate with the recipient’s interests, passions, or personality. Handmade artwork adds a personal touch to any space and serves as a constant reminder of your love and thoughtfulness.

Memory Jar: Fill a mason jar with handwritten notes detailing fond memories, favourite moments, or reasons why you love the person. It’s a sentimental gift that allows you to reflect on your journey together and appreciate the little joys in life – this is our personal favourite gift idea!
