4 Ways to Save This Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is about celebrating true love, and although some say, “love don’t cost a thing,” this holiday has a knack for burning a hole in our wallets. So in order to keep your heart—and wallet—full of love this February 14th, here are a few tried and true ways to save on Valentine’s Day:

Cook Instead of Going Out to Dinner
Enjoy a romantic meal with your special someone in the comfort of your own home. You can wow your significant other with a new, gourmet recipe, or you can cook the meal together for extra flirtatious fun. Just remember to add your favorite music and a couple of candles to set the Valentine’s Day mood. Best of all, there’s no need to tip the wait staff – unless you want to tip yourself!

Stream a Movie Rather Than Go to the Theater
A great date always has great entertainment! But instead of paying an arm and a leg to see the latest boy-meets-girl flick with all of the other Valentine’s Day daters, how about cozying-up on the couch and streaming the movies you love with the person you love! Make some popcorn, dim the lights, kick back & enjoy the show!

Send "Sweet Nothing" Texts Throughout the Day
Unfortunately, you can't always spend the entire day with the one you love on Valentine's Day. But just because you aren't with your significant other, doesn't mean they aren't on your mind. Show appreciation for your sweetheart by sending them thoughtful texts throughout the day, reminding them how much you love and care for them. As they say, "distance makes the heart grow fonder," and your valentine will be pleased to know that even distance can't keep your love apart.

Make Your Own Greeting Card Instead of Buying One
Roses are Red
Violets are Blue
Greeting Cards are cliché
It’s better to write something that’s heartfelt and true.

This Valentine’s Day ditch the cliché greeting cards and instead write your loved one a note that comes from the heart. To add extra sentimentality, write it on the back of a favorite picture of the two of you. They will definitely appreciate hearing how much they mean to you, and it will be a gift they will cherish for years to come.
