4 Tips For a Simple and Frugal Valentine’s Day
It’s the season of love! For some people, this is the perfect lovey dovey holiday to impress their beau or belle; but for others, the need to display carefully planned gestures of love might be regarded as a chore, especially when you have to break the bank in the process. We’re here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be elaborate and more importantly, it doesn’t have to be expensive. These are four simple and frugal Valentine’s Day ideas to win a man or woman’s heart.
- Bring your celebration home! Any restaurant with at least a decent setting is bound to charge a fortune during Valentine’s day. Prepare a simple home cooked meal and add a touch of romance to your home by getting a fire lit somewhere, whether it be a fireplace or candles because let’s face it – flame makes any place sexier. To push it up a further notch, buy a single rose, take the petals off and sprinkle them around the area.
- Have a movie date. Sometimes, the last thing we need after a long day of work is to have to put in all the effort in dressing up and make even more conversations. See a new romantic movie at the cinema, or even better – just do a movie night at home. Scour for a romantic classic at your local library, oldies but goodies like Casablanca, Singin’ in the Rain and The Philadelphia Story really can’t go wrong.
- But if you’re the more energetic type, take a one-time couples dance class. Waltz, Foxtrot, and Rumba are practically synonymous with romance, and learning something new together makes for a memorable Valentine’s Day too. Plenty of dance studios offer cheap or even free two-hour trial classes. You need only look.
- Give a gift that shows you care. Valuable gifts need not be expensive. Give your significant other something that shows you genuinely care about their wellbeing. If you see him/her stressed and tired, offer an act of service by perhaps taking over a chore before they get the chance to do it. Gifts like the Shocking Pink Ozmo Cup is great too because there’s nothing more intimate than showing that you care about your beloved’s health and lifestyle – it’s a sign that you’re committed to the relationship in the long run.
