Valentines Day: it's one of the most commercialized holidays out of the year, next to Christmas. There is no doubt that this particular day can take a toll on an individuals wallet, but why? Through the years, Cupid has appeared to present the idea that the only way for lovers to express love and care for one another is through spending that
hard earned money
, but how much truth really exists here? It shouldn't empty your purse to put a smile on someone else's face, do you think? We don't think it should at all. The sad truth is that restaurants, jewelry stores, floral shops, and even boutiques hope to capitalize on this day, but you don't have to get yourself caught up in the craziness of the holiday. There are plenty of ways to express love, gratitude, endearment and happiness. Are you ready to learn how and see just how you can save some of your money at the same time?
Yes, You Can Save A Little Cash On Cupids Day
Never forget how nice it is to show someone else how much they mean. We don't want this to get overshadowed in the money shuffle. It is the thought that counts the most, and if you're ready to have a memorable day with the one you love, think creatively, but stay realistic about your budget too. The following below great ideas are very romantic, and we're sure your Valentine's will be wholly appreciative to you for thinking of them!
Why not cook a romantic meal together?
There is nothing more romantic than a man in the kitchen who truly is passioned about what he is doing. Cooking a beautiful Valentines meal together could be the most memorable moment a couple can share.
Take a cooking class together!
This can be a lot of fun, and it can teach that man a thing or two as well! Cooking classes are fairly inexpensive, and they provide a couple time together, which is always important!
Create an original and well thought out coupon book!
These never go wrong, and more importantly, they are worthwhile! While it is a traditional idea and gift, look for original ideas to put into it. The coupons are for what you think is most rewarding! And guess what--this costs nothing!
Take dancing classes together!
If neither of you are very good dancers, taking a dancing class together can be very sexy! You can laugh with one another, versus laughing at one another! Better yet, you can learn some sexy moves that will turn you both on! It's inexpensive, romantic and spicy at the same time.
Create a photo album of memories on Valentines day
What can be more emotionally connecting? Going through old photos and looking at what you've experienced up to this point is very emotional! Once again, it's free and you can have so much fun putting a gift like this together with each other!
If you really think about what all you can do to show your special someone they mean more than they'll ever realize, you'll find there really are some amazing activities out there that cost little to nothing. You don't have to go to an expensive restaurant or spend a fortune at a retail store.
You can save money
at this traditional holiday, without ever making your special someone feel less than the most important thing in your life! Couples want to feel connected and time shared is the best way to make someone feel they matter! Of course, for women, having that little something extra doesn't hurt though!
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!
