Valentine's Day is one of my favorite celebrations. Even though we show our loved ones our feelings all year long, this day is an opportunity to create comforting memories. Some frugal people pooh pooh Valentine, but I see it as an opportunity to enhance a relationship.
Here's some ideas to celebrate without breaking your budget.
One flower tied in a bow and placed at the recipient's place at the dinner table is a surprise that can bring a warm smile. The smile warms the heart of the giver. Both of these are a gift.
Cut a piece of paper in the form of a heart and write a note describing how much you love your spouse / boyfriend, etc.
Make brownies and layer with a favorite frosting. Draw hearts in the frosting with a toothpick.
Create a coupon for a free night of man movies without pouting. If you are male, make a coupon that says you will watch a chick flick with your partner without being 'distracted'.
This list should get your creative juices flowing. The list could be endless and the effort appreciated by everyone.
