Valentine’s Day doesn’t always have to involve overspending.
You can still have a lovely day and show your sweetheart how much you care with these low cost Valentine’s Day ideas…
What I love about you
Get your creative juices flowing and write down all the reasons you love this amazing person in your life. It costs nothing and is guaranteed to give your loved one an ego boost – great as part of a “love box” or placed in a mason jar or heart box. You can integrate them as part of a game which leads to a dinner (or somewhere else), or simply text your love notes throughout the day.
Another creative idea is to print out this love token template and simply write what you’d like to give your beau! Some ideas include: a foot massage, dinner, hug, kisses, breakfast in bed etc. Be sure to follow up with your promise!
The way to your love’s heart is through their stomach!
Food is an aphrodisiac! Why not cook your way to your love’s heart? Here are a few ideas to get you going: Cook your loved one breakfast in bed, add a little love note for that romantic touch. Or how about a picnic? This can be outdoors or indoors – grab a bottle of bubbly and relax together on a blanket. Maybe bake some heart shaped cookies? Or how about trying to make some heart shaped chocolates using a chocolate mould and your love’s favourite chocolate – simply melt down and pour into the mould and freeze to harden.
Say “I love you” with a Photo book
For a really sentimental gift, find all the photos of the two of you together, the places you have been and any photos that would remind your love of your great times together. If you have your own printer you can digitally print them onto photo paper and put them in an album or you can get them printed, or have a photo book made with the images you choose.
