Celebrate Valentine’s Day Without Emptying Your Wallet

Valentine’s Day is coming up in one week.  Rule number 1 for me when it comes to gift for Valentine’s Day, don’t spend a lot to let the people you love most know that you care about them. Below you’ll find a list of budget-friendly ideas for you to try this year for those that are special to you.    I’ve already added a few of these ideas to my list for Valentine’s Day this year.

  • Go outside!  Build a campfire and roast marshmallows under the stars.
  • Check out local park and recreation departments and state tourism calendars for free local events.
  • Make an appreciation jar.  Fill a mason jar with notes about reasons or memories that describe what it is you appreciate about someone special.
  • Make a batch of homemade cookies.
  • Go on a scavenger hunt in your own city.  Make a list of special things to find and take a photo together at each place.  Turn the phots into a collage and give that as a gift.
  • Make a special dinner at home and pack it up for a picnic.  Stay warm with hot cocoa and a cozy blanket.
  • Volunteer your time together.  Walk stray dogs together at your local animal shelter, roll up your sleeves and help the homeless at a local soup kitchen or by helping to build first homes, visit an elder care facility and spend time with older members of your community.
