Flowers, chocolate, dinner out…….navigating Valentine’s Day on a budget can be tough! With a little creativity and planning you can put together a Heart Day celebration that’s more meaningful than all the expensive stuff.

  • Use Posit-it notes and place little messages everywhere. Don’t forget the car!
  • Serve breakfast in bed.
  • Recreate the first time you met.
  • Watch a romantic movie on Netflix.
  • Have an indoor picnic – this is a fun one for the kids.
  • Make your own Valentine treats – heart-shaped sugar cookies, chocolate dipped fruits, lemon/lime soda with cranberry juice.
  • Have a romantic dinner at home and go the extra mile by dressing up.
  • Have game night.
  • Create a coupon book for things like……..cleaning up after dinner, putting the laundry away, taking out the trash, etc.
  •  Surprise them at work if you can with a coffee or lunch!
  • Instead of a fancy card, make one yourself or use a list of song titles to express your feelings.
