Valentines Day is such a beautiful and romantic day. Its a day to celebrate the love in your life. I absolutely love celebrating my husband and the many things he does for me every day of the year. Since we are in school, we agreed to no gifts this year. However, no gifts doesn’t mean you can’t show your significant other you love them. Below are my go to ideas for this Valentines Day!
1.) Love Notes. Probably my favorite thing you could do for a loved one is to write a note about why you love them. This isn’t just a simple, I love you note, its a deep meaningful note about why you love that person, why you need them and what they do to make you a better person. Valentines Day is the one day you should go all out, find your mushy gushy side and show your spouse all the reasons you love them. These notes will mean more than any gift ever could!
2.) My husband is a Mike and Ike fiend! He absolutely loves Mike and Ike’s and goes crazy when you give them to him. So these are a super cheap and easy way of showing him I love him on Valentines Day. Yes this is an easy option, but cliches became cliches for a reason. On your way home from work, grab a box of their favorite candy, wrap it in a bow and your done!
3.) Make coffee/breakfast before work. This Valentines Day falls on a Wednesday, get up early and have coffee and their favorite breakfast for them when they wake up. Arrange it on a serving tray and you have a simple but stunning beginning to Valentines Day. You wouldn’t believe how far this little act of love will go!
4.) Guys, take time to clean an area of your house, or finish a project that hasn’t been completed. These are nuisances that weigh on your significant other. Take an hour or two and finish them for her, she will be so appreciative and you will have gotten one of the best gifts possible while spending little to no money! Sometimes its doing something to relieve everyday stress that means the most.
5.) Plan your evening together. Take the initiative to have everything planned and ready to go. Don’t spend an hour saying what do you want to do over and over. If you aren’t sure what to do, plan what you want to do for dinner, have that nights movie or game ready to go, have the house cleaned up so their are no distractions and just go in happy and ready to make memories!
I’m not sure what your plans are this Valentines Day, but don’t do nothing just because you are on a tight budget, instead use it as an opportunity to be creative!
