How to Make Your Valentine Feel Special Without Spending a Dime

Typically, Valentine’s Day is a holiday where people purchase things like roses, chocolates, or diamonds.  The idea seems to be that the more money you spend, the more you show someone that they are loved.  In reality, you can make your valentine feel special without spending a dime.  Just use your creativity!

Make your valentine breakfast in bed.  Scramble some eggs, and fry up some bacon.  You probably have these items in your refrigerator already, so it won’t cost you anything extra to do this.  Those of you who are good in the kitchen might want to make pancakes from scratch, or some freshly squeezed orange juice.

Display it nicely on a tray, and bring it to your valentine before he or she wakes up.  If your valentine is the person who usually makes breakfast for your family, this will make him or her feel extra special.

Does your valentine have a favorite movie?  Take some time to watch that movie with him or her.  There is a good chance that you, (or your valentine), have a DVD of it at home, right now.  If not, then you might be able to find it on Netflix.  If you already are paying for Netflix, it won’t cost you anything extra to view that movie together.

Make some popcorn.  Dim the lights.  Send the kids to visit grandma for the night.  Enjoy the movie and each other’s company.  If your valentine’s favorite film is a romantic one, then it will help set the mood for Valentine’s Day.

There are many couples who have completely different tastes in movies.  When you suggest watching a movie that your valentine loves, (and knows that you normally wouldn’t want to watch), that can make that person feel very special.

Now is a good time to use your creativity.  Do you play a musical instrument?  Write your valentine a song!  You can preform it live, just for that person, or record it and send it to them.  Write your valentine a poem.  A creative Valentine’s Day gift like this takes much more effort, and thought, than it does to rush into a grocery store and pick up a rose and a box of candy.  Who wouldn’t feel special when presented with such a unique expression of love?

The key to making your valentine feel special is to show them that you love them in a way that makes them feel loved.  Extra attention, and time spent together, will make your valentine feel much more special than a token gift of candy and flowers.  It is not about how much you spend.  It is about how much you care.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
