Have you started planning your Valentine’s Day yet?  Valentine’s Day is one of those holidays that people either love or hate. I’m personally not a huge fan of Valentine’s Day, but I have been known to celebrate it with my hubby from time to time. 

When my husband and I do decide to celebrate Valentine’s Day, we ALWAYS do it on a budget. I’m a saver, some might call me a cheapskate, either way, I like to save money on the things that I do and buy and the same goes for dates and holidays.  I recently discussed ways to save for Valentine’s Day, but there are more ways to do it. That’s why I am going to chat a little bit more today about more ways to save for Valentine’s day!

More Ways to Save for Valentine’s Day

Don’t celebrate it. When it really comes down to it, Valentine’s Day is just another day.  You don’t have to celebrate it. You don’t have to feel bad about not celebrating it either. Not going out on a date, or not buying a gift doesn’t reflect the love you have for your special someone. 

Make homemade gifts. Homemade gifts are incredibly meaningful and oftentimes much less expensive than other gifts. My husband always says that his favorite Valentine’s Day gift from me is a love letter that I wrote to him. 

Have a coffee date. Take your honey out for a mid-day coffee date in order to have some time together. Another great part of coffee dates with your special someone?  Your entire date can cost less than $10!

Have a dinner date at home. What is more romantic that time alone?  Why not prepare a nice dinner at home? You can light a candle or two on your dining room table and enjoy a candlelit dinner for two. It will cost you significantly less money than going out to eat.

How do you like to celebrate Valentine’s Day?  What was your favorite, low-budget Valentine’s day experience? I would love to get more ideas!

  1. We get take-out from Olive Garden (it’s a tradition from when we were struggling newly weds) and bring it home. These days, I let the girls help me decorate the dining room and we all enjoy some salad and pasta, and wine for the adults. I love our little tradition. It’s something we all look forward to. Of course, my husband always get the girls a stuffed animal and chocolates 🙂

    • I love this and that you’ve carried on the tradition since you were newly weds! Thanks for sharing!
