How to escape the Lame Gift Syndrome this Valentine’s day?

Love is a beautiful thing. If you have someone special who is like the Yin to your Yang or like the peanut butter to bread or the cream on your coffee, then you might be aware of the fact that Valentine’s day is just around the corner!


Now is usually the time when many realize that they still haven’t got any gift for their Valentine. Of course, you still have the saving grace of Chocolates, Flowers, or a greeting card. But, those gifts still don’t say ‘I love you’ like a well thought out and personalized gift. You could still gift a box of chocolates and a greeting card like Phil down below. However, instead of excitement and happiness, you might get a reaction which is more of a disappointed shock!

We at Animaker decided to embark on a mission to help you escape the lame gift syndrome.


1. Experiences are greater than any material gift

Men tend to think that women are complicated and difficult to impress. The reality is not so. What women really want is to spend quality time with their better half. Something as simple as a candle light dinner or a visit to the beach can very well convey the deep love you have for them. And if you are a person who thinks ahead and is also loaded, a trip to the World’s most romantic city Paris or the Snowy Swiss Alps will give them a time of their life.

2. Think beyond a last minute greeting card

For starters, when you give your loved one a greeting card, you just giving them words which are written by some stranger. Even when you think you have found the perfect greeting card, you know deep inside that it doesn’t perfectly convey what you feel about them. What would be better is a video which is a mix of a photo montage with pictures of you as a couple and the surprise for your loved one. To help you do that, we have created a fun and easy to edit template which can be used to convey your feelings to your Valentine.
