5 Budget Friendly Ideas to Spoil your Sweetie on Valentine's Day
Can’t buy me love. My love don’t cost a thing. I don’t need dollar bills to have fun tonight…
You get the idea. There is plenty of lyrical proof that you don’t need money to show the person that you love that you well, love them. And there are many great ways to celebrate the day of love without having to break the bank and paying off credit cards from your Valentine’s day. Especially this year, when we can't really go anywhere anyways.
As you do your planning and consider your budget, ask yourself what you can do to make your love one feels special without spending a lot of money.
Here are our top five wallet-friendly (and COVID-friendly) picks on how to spoil your special someone.
- Recreate a special date from the comfort of your home. This one calls on a bit of creativity on your part but it is definitely do-able and has the potential to be very memorable. Recreate that special outdoor summer evening concert you went to, minus the crowds and instead with the magic of the web (thanks YouTube). Or recreate the first meal that you ever prepared for your significant other, with as much detail as you can remember.
- Spoil them with an at home spa day. Pull out all the stops for this one, right down to the fluffy white robe and cucumber slices. With the right spa music selection, they will (almost) forget that they are in their living room.
- Have a movie marathon with all the treats. Thanks to the magic of streaming, you can rent almost any movie ever made. Again, you can use this opportunity to pull out your old favourites to take a trip down memory lane. Stock up on all of your favourite snacks, get your comfy clothes on and settle in and enjoy.
- Create a Valentine's Day themed scavenger hunt. You’re never too old to enjoy a good old fashioned scavenger hunt. Bonus points for clues that are specific to your relationship or inside jokes that you share.
- No phones for 24 hours. Give the gift of your undivided attention, free from digital distractions that so often take away from the time that we have together. It sounds simple, but this one can be a game changer, especially if you find yourself perpetually tied to your phone.
The bottom line is that you don’t need fancy outings or expensive things to show that you care. Often the things that we remember and that matter the most to us, don’t cost anything at all. There is something you can always afford, no matter how tight your budget is.
