For those of you with someone special in your life, this, of course, means you should be thinking about what small token of affection you’ll be bestowing on your Valentine. While you may be inclined to bust out that traditional box of chocolates and bouquet of flowers, not so fast. Why not give him or her something they’ll really remember this Valentine’s Day, you know, like a house. Before you roll your eyes, declare our suggestion impractical and click back off our article faster than a bow from cupid’s arrow, hear us out. We’ve got a few reasons giving the gift of home ownership this Valentine’s Day is the best idea ever, and some tips and tricks on just how to make it happen.
Why Owning a Home is Better than Chocolate
When it comes to saying “I Love You” few things can bring a couple closer than owning a home together. Home ownership instills comfort, stability and the ideals of family and commitment. Forget what those overpriced jewelry stores are telling you, when it comes to saying forever, nothing quite works the magic of sharing a home together. Unlike candy or roses that may stick around for a few days or weeks, a home is a gift that you can both share and that will grow with you and your relationship, for years to come.
You Can’t Really Mean Give a House for Valentine’s Day, Can You?
Okay, so you got us. For the overwhelming majority of Americans purchasing a home is a little more complicated than wrapping a key up in a silk bow and presenting it in an elaborate cardboard box and they don’t quite make wrapping paper tubes big enough to bundle up an entire house somewhere in a cute neighborhood. But when it comes to Valentine’s Day and buying a house, like most gift giving, it’s the thought that counts.
If you are looking to show that next level of commitment, or use the holiday as a convenient way to mark your next journey together in life, consider kicking off the home buying process on Valentine’s Day, rather than trying to deliver an actual piece of property. A decorative old skeleton key and a card with sentiments along the lines of “let’s buy a home together” can be a touching and thoughtful gift to get the process rolling. A small scrapbook, or an architecture book with pictures of various styles of houses is a thoughtful present that will also allow both of you to dream and plan together what your future home will look like.
