Valentine’s Day is approaching fast, and you must be wondering what to gift to that someone special. But maybe, budget is a factor as you do not want to buy something very expensive. However, you also want the gift to look classy. How can you make this possible?

Well, you should look to innovate to bring a pleasant surprise to your lover or your best buddy on the Valentine’s Day eve.How, you sure would want to know! Here are three off-beat gifts crafted out of routine objects with a touch of personalization and imagination.

Personalized CD: Burn a CD of her or his favorite love duets or solos or touchy poems. Do not forget to customize the CD cover. Do so with a nice picture of both of you. Isn’t it all romantic, albeit economical? Music CD with a personal love messages subtly sneaked between songs will also have a magical effect. Record your voice on a cell phone or a recider; transfer it onto your comp with a data cable and arrange it along with his/her favorite songs to be burnt. It cannot get simpler than this!

Personalized piece of art: Gift her or him a beautiful painting (if you are good at drawing and painting, nothing like it) or some intelligently scribbled conversation you cherish in a pretty frame.

Personalized mouse pad with a special message: A personalized mouse pad is a good gift idea. Many gift shops are willing to add sayings as well as photos on just about anything. If you do so, it will impart a personalized product. Come up with some lines that are touching and catchy.

If you wish to make it that much mushier, a love-filled poem could be considered. You could try this trick with a photo frame, mug, penholder etc. A personalized gift is bound to touch your beloved’s heart! What you will get in return… well, we won’t ask to share the details with us. It must be something very personalized…
