Valentine’s Day On A Budget
Well folks, the day of love is just around the corner! That’s right, Valentine’s Day is coming in hot, and we have some great ideas to share with you about making your day special while still staying on budget!
First off, Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be just about you and Bae. Valentine’s Day can be spent hanging out with your girlfriends while watching sappy rom-coms and eating cookie dough! But in case you want to do something with Bae, here a couple ways to keep it all under budget.
Make Your Own Date Night Dinner
Instead of going out to an expensive restaurant and being surrounded by every other couple in town, stay home and cook your own meal! Even if you aren’t the next Iron Chef, you can still whip a meal that’s both tasty and fun. Try your own personal pizza. If you want to get real “cheesy”, you can form the dough in the shape of a heart before you layer on the toppings. Plus, you can find all kinds of easy at-home recipes for two on Pinterest. There is something out there for every level of chef.
The Lost Art Of Hand-Written Notes
If you don’t want to spend a lot of money on gifts, write on individual note-cards, or fun stationary if you have it, why you love your significant other. In this day n’ age, texting is how people communicate their feelings. Writing handwritten notes is a lost art form! Your significant other will definitely appreciate the hand-written notes about why you love them.
Personal Photo Book
If you want to go with a gift, try making a photo-book on Shutterfly. Here you can design your own book, with picture of the two of you from any occasion. The best part is you can make them as personal as you want. These range in price depending on how many pages you want to include, but typically they cost around $20. This is one of the more creative and personal ways you can design a gift for your favorite person.
As stated before, our generation has become addicted to our phones, laptops and tablets. This takes away the attention you would otherwise put on the people in the same room as you. So for Valentine’s Day, each person will put their phone up, turn it on silent or turn it off so they don’t look at it all night. To make things interesting, you can even make the first person who gives in pay for the next meal or outing you two have. But in all honesty, spending time with your significant other without any distractions from the outside world will make the night much more enjoyable.
Well there you have it folks!
