Well, I have to admit. I never celebrated Valentine’s Day. It’s a new holiday here in Romania and I never got very excited about it for some reason. We have March 1 (spring token’s day) and March 8 (Women’s Day), and women are quite pampered on those days: handmade cards and handmade (mostly) spring/love/friendship tokens, flowers, and, if the desire and money are there, perfume. Now, with all that coming up in March, guys would really have a hard time if they had to buy serious gifts for Valentine’s as well. But it appears many of them have no choice. There are heart-shaped cushions and chocolate everywhere, and, again, perfume.
Now, I enjoy gifts from a man as much as any woman, and do wear perfume when the mood strikes me, but my most precious March gifts were not perfume or expensive chocolate but rather creative frugal gifts. Which is why I like Zazzle, the print-on-demand company that allows everyone to play artist and customize gifts, or at least, personalize some of the designs already created by other people.
My page will probably not make it to the first results pages on Google, but I thought I’d share some of my favorite Zazzle designs which I feel would make great Valentine’s Day gifts. They are cute enough to turn one into a Valentine’s Day believer.
