Here are some options for college-going boys who want to please their dates by gifting them something memorable but don’t have enough dough. Read on to find gifting items under Rs 100. They’ll certainly bring a smile on your girl’s pretty face.
Under the sun
Take her for a stroll to the Lodhi Garden, Indraprastha Park or Nehru Park in this pleasant weather. Get her ice cream while you walk — that won’t cost more than Rs 25. Another option is the Garden of Five Senses situated in Saket. Its attractions include a food and shopping court, sculptures by popular craftsmen, Khas Bagh, Neel Bagh and colour gardens.
Row the boat
Delhi has numerous picnic spots but if you want to be outside and still be able to enjoy some quiet time together, try boating or a shikara ride in the lake adjacent to the Old Fort. With red sandstone in the backdrop and water all around, she’ll remember the V-Day forever. To make it even more special, make sure the timing is perfect. Paddle the boat to the middle of the lake, see if there’s any other boats around, and then gift her a token of love. It could even be a kiss that won’t cost you anything! The boating fee is Rs 20 per person for 15 minutes.
Flowers for you
Choose a popular Delhi flower market from among Khari Baoli mandi, Hanuman Mandir mandi or Mehrauli mandi and pick flowers of her choice. From Rs 5 for a rose to Rs 100 for a bunch of orchids, the market stocks it all. Drop by early in the morning to get the freshest stock and the best deals.
The city is full of malls that offer a musical ambience, are clean and have places to sit. Choose from the ones far from her residential area (lest you bump into a relative/friend). The entry is free. Buy her a bar of chocolate, that won’t cost more than Rs 30.
Chaat lovers can take their dates to Bengali Market to enjoy golgappas or aloo tikki. You can even check out the exhibitions at Triveni Kala Sangam nearby, for free!
