Friday is Valentine’s Day! We like to show our loved ones how much we love them in special ways. A problem for some of us is those special ways can be quite expensive. Some of us are on a really tight budget and there is hardly any wiggle room for extras like Valentine’s Day.
To help you out, I have found some ideas that are not so on the expensive side and still show your love.
A simple hand written note – even if it is just the words “I Love You.” Cards are good, but to see it in your own handwriting is even more special.
A candle light dinner at home – make his or her favorite meal and serve it with soft candle light and music.
Go out for dessert – after the meal, go get some dessert and then…
Go star-gazing – take some blankets and find a place to just sit and look at the stars.
Just one flower will do – it doesn’t have to be a huge bouquet. And it doesn’t even have to be a rose. Give her favorite flower and she will know that remember what she likes.
Leave small reminders – all over the house. Sticky notes with hearts, I <3 U, even your lip prints, ladies.
Flirt a little more than usual – enough said there
Cuddle – in front of the fireplace with some hot chocolate. Lay some blankets and pillows out and enjoy the romance
Movie for two – on the couch with a big bowl of popcorn and drinks
Another night – The restaurants can be really crowded on Valentine’s night. Wait for another night to go out. It may be a lot less stressful as well.
Do breakfast instead of dinner – breakfast in bed or go out. Breakfast will cost less than the dinner and will get the day started off on a romantic note.
A couples devotion – this may be a little uncomfortable for some. Look up some verses from the Song of Songs and do a couple’s devotion. Show him or her your love for God.
Happy Valentine’s Day to you all!
