Well as you may or may not be aware, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. No matter what you decide to do, I think it’s a day best utilized spending TIME with the ones you love — nothing can replace that. So here are 4 affordable things you can do to make the day extra special:
1. Cater to their sweet tooth – I personally LOVE making cupcakes…you can make a couple different flavors and even get creative with the frosting. But you can also do tarts, mini cheescakes, or anything bite sized will do….the possibilities are only limited to your imagination.
2. Make that special dinner – It doesn’t have to be filet mignon and a baked potato….the fact that you broke out the “good” dishes and slaved over a hot stove to make their favorite meal, will go a long way. I even like to go the extra step and dress up. True enough…you’re not going very far…but your favorite little dress and a red lip will make it all complete.
3. Fondue it up – Chocolate dipped anything can be fun for 2 or a party of 20. Visit a fruit market for great deals on pineapples, bananas, and strawberries. Try out a fun fondue recipe …even if you’ve never done it before, you can always eat your mistakes.
4. Spend time doing something together – You can try a free day at the museum, a play, or an affordable concert you’ve been meaning to attend. Or you can break out the candles, a blanket, and make a few snacks to create the perfect Netflix night.
You don’t have to spend a fortune to show the ones you love a little love….just put some thought into it and do the thing you’d love to be done for you…and you’ll be just fine.
