Get back to the basics and make something. Even if you aren’t creative, you can still make a home made gift and it doesn’t have to be elementary. Here’s an idea, make a photo book of two lovers. You can either buy a photo album or a scrap book and add some photos of the two of you doing some memorable things, add a poem just for them and you will have an awesome and memorable gift to share.
Here’s an idea that’s practically free! Take a romantic walk together. Perhaps get a kite and take it with, pack a picnic lunch and have some quality time together and if it’s too cold outside, send the kids to the sitter and light up the fireplace or some candles and have a picnic in the middle of your living room! Use your imagination and make the best of the things that are around you to have a special time for the two of you.
Instead of dining out perhaps plan a very romantic meal with easy dishes and perhaps some fresh strawberries dipped in chocolate for desert. An inexpensive bottle of wine can be added for under ten dollars. Best valentine’s day ideas can be a lot cheaper instead of going out to eat if you just do a little research online or check some of your cookbooks to get some really delicious meals.
