The moment we lovers have been waiting for has arrived. For better or worse, Valentine’s Day is a date that we Mexicans have adopted because we are one of the warmest cultures when it comes to showing our affection. That is why we would like to recommend you some unusual gifts that can be perfect for your partner, friends, or even family; we also have a couple of ideas to prove that you do not need to spend too much on that special gift.
- A map of the stars from “the day we met.”
This project from The Night Sky allows you to recreate how the stars were positioned on any day unique to you. If the gift is for your significant other, you can enter the date and place you met, and their portal will accurately recreate the position of the stars with a beautiful dark background. You can even order the printing and framing, presenting this beautiful gift as if it were a work of art.
- A memorable playlist.
Thanks to technology and music platforms like Spotify, Sound Cloud, or Apple Music, it is now possible to make playlists for any occasion. With a little creativity, you can choose the songs that remind you of that special person and create this digital gift completely free. It is also a perfect gift for couples (or friends) who are not physically together due to the pandemic.
- Create your own perfume.
We found a page in Mexico that allows you to create your own perfume at a very reasonable cost. Perfumérica is a platform that lets you customize your own perfume, whether you are a man or a woman, for $490 with free shipping in 3 to 5 business days. This project is exceptionally creative, perfect for couples, and its vintage presentation adds the perfect touch.
- Dinner at home: a classic that never dies.
There are details that, although seemingly quite simple, we hardly ever actually carry them out. Do you remember the last time you had dinner with your partner by candlelight? If you live together, this gift is quite ideal and economical. Just create an atmosphere that gets you in the mood to bake something delicious. You can even play some jazz in the background and let yourselves be carried away by the conversation while toasting with a bottle of wine.
- Offer a vintage book as a gift
Second-hand books have become quite popular in recent years, as they are incredibly cheap and have that unique old book smell. Many findings have surprised us, such as special editions, art books, or even novels no longer published. We suggest you give a vintage book a second chance and write a personalized dedication inside.
