Valentine’s Day is tomorrow, but if you forgot, you don’t have to run from store to store, desperately collecting wilted roses and day-old chocolates.
Here are some last-minute and inexpensive Valentine’s Day ideas that will warm her heart without breaking your bank.
Go out — not on Valentine’s Day
To avoid those jacked-up prices, go out the night before or after Valentine’s Day. Not only will you save money, but you’ll avoid all the crowds.
Choose coffee and dessert
If the budget is tight but you still want to go out, then simply head down to the coffee shop and grab coffee and a nice dessert. You’ll save a lot of money while still enjoying time together and great conversation.
Deliver your own flowers
Guys, if you’re buying flowers, you’ll pay a lot more through a florist who delivers. Go to a farmer’s market or a local grocery store, buy your own flowers and deliver them yourself. Chivalry isn’t dead, so prove it! Delivering the flowers yourself adds a romantic touch that your date will love.
Stay home with a movie
Sure, it’s not that creative, but you’ll still have a lot of time to talk and spend time together. Pop some popcorn, watch a movie on Netflix, and you’re good to go!
Invite friends over to cook
Single or not, getting a bunch of friends together on Valentine’s Day to cook a big meal can be one of the most intimate ways to spend your holiday. Besides being a lot of fun, this is a great way to save money because each person is only responsible for one thing. And, even if you don’t cook, I’m sure you can bring dessert.
