Stay-at-Home Valentine’s Day Tips

This Valentine’s spend it at home with your valentine. Read these great tips on how to make it memorable.

  1. Make a plan. 

When it comes to exceeding Valentine’s Day expectations, nothing takes the place of good communication. If money is tight, don’t hesitate to talk about what makes sense for both of you. There can still be some surprises, but ensuring you agree that the most important thing is spending time together can really help.

  1. Delicious dinner can be built for your budget.

Enjoy take-in in lieu of take-out. Get lobster or steak and prepare it together. (It will be much less than what you buy at a restaurant.) Make your own dough in the shape of a heart and then create a pizza or calzone with all your favorite toppings from your local grocer.

  1. Give thoughtful gifts

If you give gifts, do something from the heart. One way to avoid overspending is to agree to give each other gift certificates. Certificates for making a nice, future dinner, tidying the house, doing all the yardwork, completing that long-procrastinated task can all make for gifts that keep on giving.

  1. Create an ambiance

Even though it’s your place, you can change the mood by dimming the lights, adding some upscale candles and turning on some nice music. Your dining room can become a fine, extravagant restaurant in minutes.

  1. The pen is mightier than the sword

With some inexpensive Valentine’s cards from your local store, you can leave love notes around the house for your special someone. Leave them as a surprise before work or read them together over dinner.
