From cards to candies, chocolates to flowers, Valentine’s Day can get pretty expensive. But who says you have to spend a lot of money to show your affection? This Valentine’s Day, celebrate your loved one, friends and family without breaking the bank. Saving money can be so sweet.
1. Make a personal gift.
A photo collage or a box full of special little keepsakes can make a memorable Valentine’s gift and probably last longer than a box of chocolates.
2. Avoid high priced restaurants.
Instead, go for a winter walk and then stop into your local coffee shop for a hot chocolate and yummy treat.
3. Skip the store-bought candies and chocolates
Bake your own sweet treats. Not a baker? Buy a box of ready-made red velvet cake mix; add some icing and sprinkles and you’ve got homemade, straight from the heart, cupcakes.
4. Celebrate the next day.
There’s no reason you can’t celebrate Valentine’s Day on the following day. The benefit – everything is half off!
5. Do something different.
Gather a group of friends, order pizza and watch a romantic comedy (or cheesy horror flick). Cozy up and spend the night in with your favourite people.
Have fun this Valentine’s and remember the more creative you get, the less money you will spend.
