Valentine’s Day Romance Tips on a Budget


Valentine’s Day Romance Tips on a Budget

Expressing love and gratitude for the people in your life is what Valentine’s Day is all about. Something as simple as ‘I Love You’ can cost you a fortune (not really, but you get the point). Why spend so much money on three words when things from the heart are just as appreciated.

Here are some great ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day without breaking the bank:

  • Write a love letter. Mail it. Cost 44 cents.
  • Don’t buy roses for Valentine’s Day! It’s common expected, and expensive. Buy different flowers. Flowers in her favorite color. Flowers that match his eyes. Flowers that send a message. Flamboyant flowers. Tiny, delicate flowers. Lots and lots of flowers. One single flower.
  • Give them a custom-made play list on their iPod.
  • Use kids’ valentines: a whole box full of silly puns and clichés, all for just a couple of bucks. Mail a box of ‘em. Fill his briefcase with them. Tape them all over her car. Fill the sink with them. Fill her pillow with them. Mail one a day for a month.
  • Get them something that they have always wanted to have, but always held back on…because it was too impractical, too weird, or too self-indulgent.
  • Do you praise them in public? When’s the last time you told someone else how lucky you feel to have this person in your life? Complimenting them in front of someone else will make them feel extra special on this day.
  • Turn Valentine’s Day into a real holiday: Take the day off work. Then spend the day in bed together. Go to the movies. Go out to lunch. Go dancing. Take a drive. Make love. Go for a stroll.
  • Send her a box filled with those Valentine Conversation Heart candies. A BIG box. Or replace all the Cheerios with Valentine Conversation Hearts. Or use them to spell out a romantic message to her. Leave it on the kitchen table or paste it to a piece of construction paper.
