Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and everybody is already thinking about what he or she is going to give out as a gift to that special person who means the world to them. Take a look at some money making gifts that will leave lasting impressions on your significant other.

Investment books

Books are priceless gems that can mould the future of an individual forever. What a perfect gift it will be if you carefully select a financial book that can help become a building block to her financial growth in years to come. There are several books that will prove useful in this regard, and they are available at very affordable prices online. I recommend the following financial bestselling books.

Sacred Success by Barbara Stanny. It is a book that dwells deeply on the subject of financial management and the fact that there are better ways for women to create wealth and power. It is more than a financial guide. It is available for just $17 online.

Prince Charming Isn’t Coming: How Women Get Smart About Money is another amazing financial book by Barbara Stanny that teaches women how to become smart and take charge of their finances. It is a heart to heart overview about the psychological and financial tools women need to equip themselves with in order to take charge of their financial destinies. It is available for just under $13 on Amazon.

Million Dollar Women by Julia Pimsleur is another blockbuster book I will recommend for your sweetheart for the Valentine season. It is an essential guide for female entrepreneurs who want to take their businesses to the next levels. Available for under $9 online.

How to Make Money on Instagram by Laura Ikeji. I haven’t read it but in just 2-3days, many copies have been sold on Payporte. Does bae love the social media or love taking pictures? Then this book will ultimately teach your bae to convert his/her hobby into a major money making business.

Monopoly board game

This is one of the oldest, financially educative board games in the world till date. It teaches about money and investments and is usually played between two players.

It is a nice gift idea for your loved one, especially during the Valentine season. The game is easy to play and comes with rules for both players to follow. The goal of Monopoly is to invest in real estate, earn cash flow, and have the most money at the end of the game.

The game involves lots of planning and decision making, so it is a great way to help your bae to develop an investment mindset. A classic edition of the monopoly board game costs just $14.82 and is available both online and in most standard bookshops in Nigeria.

The Game of Life

This is another exciting board game that is similar, yet quite different from the Monopoly board game. The Game of Life is an investment board game that is a perfect gift for the special lady in your life. It teaches financial skills like the importance of career and income.

I played it years ago and found it really exciting; a player chooses a path to follow, whether career or business. Depending on the path taken, you are bound to meet with several peculiar obstacles and you will have to make some financial decisions and at the end, these decisions will determine how you end up in “life”.

The player with the most money at the end of the game is declared the winner. It’s an absolutely lovely gift for lovers. It is available online for $20 or thereabouts.

Android phone preloaded with financial apps and games

Another creative gift to give your girl during Valentine celebration is an Android phone gift fully customized with video games such as The Game of Stocks, Stock Trainer: Virtual Trading, and Market Trends. You can also preload financial e-books – Money Management Tips, Money Manager, 101 Quotes by Robert Kiyosaki, 36 Ideas for Passive Income and The Secret of Getting Rich.

These apps and e-books will trigger her financial consciousness and help her develop her investment portfolio over time. The average Android phone can be purchased with less than ₦30,000 in the open market and you can do the customization yourself before presenting it as a gift to her on February 14th.

Buy her shares in some profitable companies and present the certificates to her

This is quite unique in the sense that most folks would never think about such amazing investment gifts that will last for quite a while. Some company shares have made the top gainers in the stock market for consecutive seasons and they are worth buying if the funds are there.

To make her appreciate that unique relationship, you can go ahead and buy 2 or 3 company shares on her behalf, package the share certificates and present them to her on St Valentine’s Day. She definitely won’t forget that impressive gesture in a hurry.
