Sometimes it’s nice to be spoiled, but if you can’t exactly afford to splurge this year for your loved one, have no fear! You can still celebrate Valentine’s Day on a budget and have a great day with your significant other! Follow these tips for celebrating Valentine’s Day on a budget and you’ll find that you’re able to still have fun this year.
How To Celebrate Valentine’s Day On A Budget
Skip the flowers!
Flowers are great and beautiful, but they don’t last long and they come with a huge price tag. Instead, make your Valentine something handmade and sentimental. It will be just as well received and it will last a lot longer! It saves you money and shows your significant other how much you care. It also gives you a chance to show off your skills!
Get creative with your decorations.
Valentine’s Day decorations get a huge mark up as the holiday approaches. Search in places like dollar stores for cheaper decorations that are still cute enough to decorate for your significant other! You can find balloons, heart banners, and other Valentine’s Day decorations at dollar stores to save some money. You could also search Pinterest for DIY Valentine’s Day decorations and come up with your own ideas! Pinterest has thousands of Valentine’s Day ideas and they are so creative – anyone would love them!
Make your own dinner.
Going out to eat on Valentine’s Day might seem like a great idea but the reality is that most places will be extremely crowded and it’s likely to be a pretty big bill. Instead, trying finding some delicious recipes on Pinterest that you can make and make your own dinner. It’s quiet, romantic, and can save you a ton of money! By eating at home instead of out at a restaurant, you might even save enough to be able to splurge on a bottle of wine or a nice dessert.
Think about skipping it all together!
If you are in a relationship where you’re comfortable enough to forego Valentine’s Day, do it! Have yourselves an even better day-after celebration. Go shopping together to score some delicious half-price Valentine’s Day candy, make a nice breakfast, hang out at home and spend some real quality time together. Do something you haven’t done in a while like playing cards or board games together and just enjoy each other’s company!
