Here are a few tips to make the day extra special for your loved one or for yourself while also being cost conscious:
1. With fancy Valentine’s Day cards costing up to $8 at stores like Papyrus, why not make a card yourself? DIY (do it yourself) handmade cards are the best to receive. Get creative!!
2. With restaurants offering a “special Valentine’s Day” menu where prices are double what they usually are – why not cook a dinner yourself. This will be much more authentic as you can choose your own menu and cook it with the best ingredient on this day – lots of love.
3. Roses are Red … but they are also very very expensive on this day – with a half dozen roses costing up to $40!! Why not pick your own wildflowers or lavender?
The most important thing which is free is to show the you care about how much they mean to you… and this is priceless.
