It is almost that time of year again, love it or loathe it; Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. If you want to get something special for your loved one and still have enough cash left to spend at West Hills Mall, we have plenty of ideas for you to stuff up your sleeve.
It’s tricky, it’s always been tricky. We are less than two days from that day you must express your love to that special one. On Valentine’s Day, it can feel like there is a lot of pressure to come up with just the right gift, especially when there is need to stay within budget. Let me paint you a picture. Your bank account is nearly tapped out, you still need to spend a good time at Labadi Beach resort, eat out and lay in enough ramen noodles to last through the month.
However, you can’t go wrong by making the effort to show and recognize your love on Valentine’s Day—even an anti-snoring solution band isn’t such a bad idea if your partner snores—but you could go wrong by just ignoring the day entirely. Aren’t your loved one worth it?
While finding that perfect gift, you still have to strike the right balance between price, quality and putting a bright smile on the face of your loved ones. To strike the best balance, I gathered the top five gifts I could find for free, GH₵100 or less. Benchmark busters they’re not, but they aren’t budget busters, either.
