I remember events like Valentine’s Day, promposals or an anniversary as days I always had to prep so much for and always questioned if I did enough.
I’d spend hours on Pinterest searching for the most clever idea and dedicating a few days just crafting everything. Yes, it’s the major love day of the year but no that doesn’t mean you have to go overboard or even do that much. First off, any guy loves food (chocolate we know) or any type of attention you give them, honestly. So really anything he’ll be flattered or just fall in love with you. Fortunately, I’m saving you tons of time and just sharing 12 amazing gifts for him (or her!) for special events like prom, holidays, birthdays or anniversaries– so you don’t have to do the research!
Below are some creative, clever but simple ways to surprise your crush/forever/lover. I included some of my favorites that don’t require the stress of going out and doing something extravagant, don’t require big bucks (unless you’re in the mood to spoil) and ways he definitely won’t forget you. You’ll blow his mind with any of these crafty ideas (even if they seem cheesy)!
Here’s my round-up of 12 super romantic and thoughtful gifts for your special someone that are mostly fast, easy and inexpensive too! These ideas would also work perfectly for an anniversary gift, birthday, prom idea or just to say “I love you!” <3

And they say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Literally the easiest breakfast (breakfast in bed) and just as tasty as pancakes or waffles. What simpler idea than a box of donuts with a cute saying to go with it?

Keep him curious with five little gifts to test your senses. Think SEXY, think FUN, think IRRESISTABLE. Make it random so he won’t expect any of it but right up his alley. Leave a little something in each package you can get creative with. If he had five little gift bags for you what would he want in them?

Guys love games (or at least they’re good at them). Especially when they’re homemade. Write little things on each block and give him little notes to think about while he’s in the game. Add a little heart or design on the end cause you’re cute and V DAY.

There are a time and place to open everything. Give him a little reminder of you when he’s in need of it. You can be fun and creative with “when” you want him to open a letter 😉 think of all the scenarios a letter would be necessary. Have some humorous ones, serious ones, cheesy, lovey dovey, spice it up!

Ever keep the movie tickets from your date or a souvenir from one of your favorite moments? Before you misplace them or throw them away, collect them all and surprise him with all the fun times you’ve had together & something to look back on. He can put this anywhere and have a box of just YOU.

Google maps in a picture frame documenting your first moments, what’s not to love? Probably one of the easiest things you could do but freaking adorable. Something besides car posters he can keep forever and have on his wall from you!

Display your best times together with an arrangement of photos. Write little notes on the back reminding him of the moments and how it made the cut. The balloons make it even more festive and gives him so many moments to look back on.

So he has a big shoe collection but not a pair from you? Surprise him with new ones or another and add a cute quote to complete the box of love. Don’t forget to write on the lid, that’s half the gift and half the humor!

Let this be one of the first things he sees when he wakes up and have him “stuck” in the bathroom overwhelmed by love notes. You can write the most awkward, weirdest, simple, funny things, just anything to make him smile. It may seem simple but the idea is so cute! You never knew you could be so crafty with scratch notes.

As much as guys love watches, spoil him a bit with a new one and leave a clever quote that relates to it. Some of the best gifts truly come in the smallest packages. If you’re truly wanting girlfriend points and would rather buy something nice this will set him back in timeless love for sure 😉

Plot twist it’s a (scary) movie night. The overall visual is so cute and you can choose to make it a different theme or just the romantic movie night. Set the mood with all things tasty and cozy. You’ll be guaranteed to cuddle more if it’s a freaky night 😉 include his favorite drink and favorite candies but that still go with the theme.
What a perfect and easy way to write down favorite memories, 100 things you love about him or you could even fill a jar with little notes of date ideas!
Please post below which idea you end up picking! I’d love to hear about it! 🙂 xoxo Madi
