How to Save Money on Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day – that one day of the year when it’s absolutely unforgivable to ignore your significant other. Even if they’ve told you that they don’t want or expect anything, you must know that they do. Everyone wants to feel special on this day.
In fact you don’t need to spend much money and look for the perfect gift for days to impress your loved one. There are various ways to make them feel special, loved and cherished. Here is how to save money on Valentine’s Day.
On Valentine’s Day it’s best to be original and surprise your loved one with something they aren’t expecting. If you live with them, it’s even easier to organize a dinner and decorate the house for them. Look for a recipe that you can easily cook and don’t forget the desert. Buy flowers and scatter them around the living room or the bedroom – this will create the right atmosphere for the celebration.
If you want to be extra original, a handmade gift is the perfect way to show your love and care. Why don’t you make a scrapbook with your photos as a couple? Or buy a pretty jar made of glass and fill it with small love coupons. These are quite popular and your loved one will be thrilled. A love coupon can be just a small note with a handwritten text on it. Anything you feel that you could do for your partner, write it down on a list: walks, cinema, cooked dinner, shopping spree, trip, massage, surprise, etc. This is a very thoughtful way to show your partner that you truly love them. They can take one coupon every week or as often as they wish. It will make the rest of the year special and unique – full of giving and special occasions.
Organize a Romantic Date
If you don’t want to spend Valentine’s Day at home, you can organize the best date your loved one has been on. Book a table for two in their favourite restaurant, take them to the cinema, or do something fun together – play bowling, pool or go dancing. This is many women’s and men’s idea of a perfect Valentine’s Day – doing things together, having a laugh and enjoying the evening, outside of home. What’s best than giving the gift of time together, fun and activities? No other present can feel as special as spending the day together and doing all the things you both love.
There is a lot of pressure about Valentine’s Day and the expectations are high. However, you don’t have to break the bank to have a brilliant and memorable celebration with your significant other.
