Valentine's Day savings tips

Love is in the air! With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, it’s time for you to lock in your plans. Here are some tips to help you save some money this holiday:

Think outside the box

Whether its jewelry or expensive chocolates, your Valentine’s Day gift-giving doesn’t have to be stressful. If you’re having trouble scraping together the cash for a thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift – no worries! It may be time for you to revisit your DIY Pinterest board that’s been collecting digital dust.

Dig up your hot glue gun and try making a homemade card or photo collage. If crafts aren’t your thing, grab a pen and try writing a thoughtful poem for your loved one. A gift from the heart is such a priceless gesture that is sure to make your Valentine’s Day extra special.

Just desserts

If you and your loved one prefer a romantic night in, you can skip the fancy dinner and order takeout instead. Who ever said an extra-large pizza wasn’t romantic? While this lovey-dovey holiday calls for something sweet, you may choose to splurge on desserts. If the price of edible arrangements and other novelty sweets are out of your price range, try opting for some homemade baked treats or DIY chocolate covered fruit instead.

Postpone the date

There aren’t any rules stating Valentine’s Day has to be celebrated on February 14. Besides, who wants to celebrate a romantic night in the middle of the work week? With Valentine’s falling on a Wednesday this year, many couples should consider postponing their Valentine’s Day plans for the weekend. That way, you can avoid hiked up dinner prices and crowded restaurants. As an added bonus, you and your significant other can score some awesome deals on post-Valentine’s Day candy!
