Valentine’s Day is almost here and it’s the perfect time to show that special someone how much you care. When you are on a budget, planning for the day can be a little stressful. Just remember, a good date doesn’t have to break the bank. Here are some fun ideas that will make your Valentine’s day a memorable one without spending a fortune.
Make a homemade love note
Instead of spending money an a card, write a heartfelt note to that special someone.
Cook a meal together
Instead of spending money on an expensive dinner, plan to cook a meal together. Cooking with your loved one while listening to you favorite music can be a nice romantic experience.
Make a book of IOU’s
Who doesn’t like it when someone else does something to make their day easier? A book filled with things as simple as washing a car, or even a foot rub can be a much appreciated act of romance.
Plan an evening of going outside and watching the stars
Grab a blanket and wine, cuddle up outside and have a romantic night together stargazing.
Make a box of compliments
Take a moment to cut hearts out of construction paper. Write one thing that you like about that special someone on each heart. Place them in a box and wrap with a bow.
Leave sweet notes and candy
Place a sweet love note or candy in places where that special someone may find them. Put a note on their car windshield, or leave candy on their car seat.
Binge Watch your favorite TV show on Netflix
Grab some strawberries and a bottle of champagne and cozy up with your loved one binge watching their favorite tv show.
Bring lunch to that special someone at work
Take a moment and stop by your valentine’s work with their favorite lunch. It will be a great surprise and a nice romantic gesture.
Throwing money around on Valentine’s Day can take a toll on your budget, and honestly, showing your loved one how much you truly care is a priceless gesture that comes from the heart.
