Valentine’s Day will be here before you know it and the good news is: you don’t have to spend a lot of money to celebrate it! Your BBB® wants to share a few very useful tips when it comes to celebrating love:
You don’t have to spend thousands of dollars to let your loved one know how much you appreciate them. In the words of Justin Timberlake (yes, that one!), “I’d like to thank my wife for teaching me patience and the little things like just putting the dishes in the dishwasher. It goes a long way. Fellas, you’re welcome,”. Try taking over a chore for your Valentine and do things the same way he or she would.
Writing love letters might be a lost art, but you can revive it once a year. Grab a piece of paper and a pen and let your imagination run free. Important note: please be original. Don’t copy a poem you found online or a few lines from a movie. Use your own words- they will always be good enough!
You can carve strawberries to make them look like roses. Add a few bamboo skewers and you’ll have a delicious bouquet for your Valentine!
Use clues like “where we first met”, “our song”, “your favorite dessert” etc. It’s a fun way to find the treasure while remembering how special your relationship is.
And if the weather is bad, you can have an indoor picnic. Turn off the TV, your cell phones and just hang out.
Grab some popcorn, a few drinks and watch your favorite flick. Just make sure it’s not a horror movie.
Park close to your favorite spot, walk around holding hands and bring some snacks with you in case you get hungry.
Here’s the best thing about this: you don’t even have to schedule a delivery for your sweetheart! Just grab a few balloons and go surprise your Valentine with a lunch date.
If you are looking to buy a gift, here are a few cute and budget-friendly ideas:
- Heart-shaped umbrella
- Morse code necklace
