Valentine’s Day is the opportunity to show your love to that special someone and how much they mean to you. There’s no doubt that something luxurious stays in our head for a long time. That is why sometimes people break the banks just for valentine’s Day.
Don’t worry, love isn’t measured in ringgit. You don’t have to spend a lot to show someone that you care. It’s the intention and thoughts that counts. So, here are a few ways we can have a special day on Valentine’s Day without ruining our budget or put us into further debt.
1. Give a handwritten letter.
Don’t underestimate handwritten letter. It is more meaningful because writing to someone and taking the time to craft each sentence while thinking of that person will make them feel special. Handwritten letter also feels more personal and is suitable to use to express our feelings for someone. Therefore, the message contained in it could be conveyed more effectively. And you don’t have to spend a fortune on a beautifully designed letter. They are affordable yet still can make valentine’s day special.
2. Dinner at home.
Who says you have to go out to eat? You can have a romantic candlelight dinner at home having a homemade meal together with your special someone. It does not only save you from the head busting price of a meal in a fancy restaurant, but you and your partner can also have a more personal romantic dinner time together without the need to worry about what to wear and just enjoy your time cooking together and reminiscing your memories in more comfortable surroundings.
3. DIY gifts.
Instead of buying super expensive gifts why not take the time and effort to give your partner a gift that you create yourself. It can be a photobook that contains pictures of your memories together with your partner along with a few heartfelt messages. You can also handmade a bracelet that marks your relationship milestone. Handmade gifts certainly will not look as good as diamonds or any other lavish gifts, but it carries more sentimental values and way cheaper.
4. Spend time together.
You don’t have to reserve a fancy place just to celebrate valentine’s day together with your partner. You can just simply spend time together at home watching movies, chatting with each other, play games or other simple activities that you both can enjoy. Valentine’s day is not about buying gifts, it is more about spending time with each other and show your partner how much they mean to you. It can also save your money and time to make a reservation at a restaurant.
5. Gift of service.
Another creative idea that you can use on valentine’s day is a gift of service. You can create your own coupon book that contains the things you would do for your partner, such as doing the laundry for a week, washing a car, an hour massage and many other romantic gestures that don’t cost you anything and what your partner maybe hate to do. It’s a simple everyday chore that can touch your partner’s heart and when you offer the service to help do it for them, that is an offer they can’t resist and be thankful for.
6. Take them for fun activity.
Instead of taking your partner to a restaurant, why not take them to go bowling, take a walk or maybe take her on a hike instead? Doing outdoor activity surrounded by nature is a good change of air of what usually been done on Valentine’s Day. You can share a good conversation while taking pictures with beautiful nature scenery as a background.
At the end of the day, you don’t need to empty your wallet to impress the one you love. Just giving your time and show your feelings through a simple handwritten letter or handmade gift can make them feel appreciated and make the day more memorable.
Sometimes, small simple things are more meaningful than something lavish. You just need to have a little bit of effort, time and creativity to make a simple thing special for your loved ones.
