How To Enjoy Valentine’s Day With Your Beloved Without Emptying Your Pocket
If you are on a tight budget, don’t worry. There are many ways you can celebrate V-day without breaking the bank.
1. Give inexpensive yet thoughtful gifts.
Chocolates, flowers, and jewelries are some of the traditional V-day presents. Why don’t you give your sweetheart something that won’t cost you much but would mean a lot to him or her. Homemade cookies, cakes, or cards are economical yet thoughtful presents. Here’s one gift your honey will appreciate without you spending a single penny: offer your “services”—you can run errands for your beloved like washing the car, making a special dinner, repairing the house, or giving a massage.
2. Put your feelings into writing.
Write down your reasons for loving your honey on small pieces of colored paper and then post them all over the house: on the fridge, couch, closets, and anywhere. For sure, your love will be delighted to discover everything you love about him or her.
3. Look for free or low-priced concerts.
An organization, school, or college in your area may be organizing a free concert on February 14, so grab the chance to watch it with your beloved!
4. Have a special, candlelit dinner at home.
Why spend hundreds of dollars for a dinner date at an elegant restaurant when you can dine at home? What makes V-day dinner at home all the more special is the fact that you cook and prepare the dishes yourself for the one you love. Isn’t that sweet and thoughtful? You can even get dressed up for it and arrange the table setting to create an ambience of a fancy restaurant.
5. Be smart when purchasing flowers.
You don’t have to follow the flock by getting a bouquet of red roses. There are other beautiful flowers out there at lower the price of roses. To save more money, you should order your flower several weeks earlier than February 14.
6. Go on an inexpensive yet enjoyable date.
You can take a walk in the park, take a rowboat on a lake, or drive around and explore your neighborhood for some nice places to eat. Or you can stay at home watching your favorite movies on DVD while munching on popcorn.
7. Find reasonably-priced travel deals and accommodations.
Look around for travel deals on the Web. Be on the lookout for discounts before you make a reservation. Also, learn how to negotiate for the deals and prices properly. Who knows, you may be able to get a vacation for two at a lower price!
See? Celebrating Valentine’s Day may seem involve a lot of money, but then you can cut back on your spending while having fun with your sweetheart.
