Roses have been given as a traditional Valentine’s Day gift for centuries. Typically, you can pick up a decent bunch in your local supermarket for under £10. Red is expected, but check out this extensive list of the meaning behind each colour.
Home made presents
While diamond rings and gold bracelets can look expensive and impressive, nothing shows love more than a handmade gift, from coupons for nice deeds to photo collages. The thought and time put into the gift outweighs the minimal amount of money spent on it.
