6 Cool Ways To Enjoy Valentine’s Day Without Spending Too Much

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and I’m sure you are gearing up for a fab day with that special someone. You’re probably wondering how you are gonna fit in your spending to your tight budget. I’ve got news for you! Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to cost a lot of money for the experience to be romantic. Here are 6 interesting ways to show love without bursting your wallet:

1. Cook Dinner Together
Skip the expensive restaurants and make a homemade meal instead — but one more fancy than an ordinary night’s dinner. Spark some romance while preparing dinner together. Choose a dish that you both love and work side-by-side in the kitchen to prepare it. Play some music to add some more romance to the experience and then enjoy eating the meal together, after you have prepared it.

2. DIY Gifts
Instead of buying a super expensive piece of jewelry or something equally as wallet-busting, give a unique and personal token of your love. You don’t need to spend a small fortune to show the object of your affections that you care about them so why not make your own personal gift. It can be a photo collage or short video you compiled of the two of you. Whatever you choose to design, no one can resist a gift made with love.

3. Go Dancing
Its really not that expensive to find a good place around where they play your favourite music. Just go dancing! Put on your dancing shoes and get close with your significant other.

4. Write It Out
You don’t have to be a super writer to write from your heart. It could be a Poem, a Letter or a short note. Search deep into your heart and write sweet words for your love. Let your loved one know just how much he or she means to you in writing.

5. Re-enact Your First Date
Do you remember the place you had your first date? Or the place you first met? It is very likely your first date together wasn’t too expensive so why not recreate that special moment all over again. This will surely melt his/her heart and would give you time to recount the lovely memories of being together.

6. Get Creative in the Bedroom
Hmm… this is for married couples only *wink*.
One of the best parts of Valentine’s Day is the facilitation of intimacy. This year, kick your bedroom antics up a notch and get creative by making it a night to remember.

SL Fabz, what do you think of this list? Would you be doing any of these on Valentine’s Day?
