Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and for people who do not have a lot of money, the idea of not being able to afford a decent gift is one sure way to get into the doghouse, especially for the guy. However, Valentine’s Day does not have to put a big dent in the wallet if it is done right because the best gifts are the ones that are truly from the heart. Despite how mushy that might sound, especially to guys, it happens to the truth because sometimes small gestures can be more valuable to women then even the fanciest box of chocolates or a dozen long stem roses.
Make a Card:
There is nothing more touching than a homemade card, especially if the guy writes things inside of it that express how he truly feels. Though the idea of bad poetry written in a card may sound cheesy, embarrassing, and like a second grade art project, any girl would be thrilled to get such a touching gift, and it will be something she keeps forever.
Dinner For Two at Home:
Restaurants will be crowded on Valentine’s Day, and even if couples get to the place early, the price of dinner may be double or triple the amount simply because of the holiday. However, a nice quiet dinner for two at home is much nicer especially if a favorite meal is cooked, a bottle of wine is chilled, and the best part is that there are no crowds and noise to deal with.
Spending Time Together:
After dinner, moving into the living room for some quality time is the best way to wind down the evening. Stretching out on the couch together with a blanket while matching a movie or favorite television show, is a nice way for two people who love each other to just appreciate one another’s company without having to spend a lot of money.
Valentine’s Day comes once a year, but it does not have to be a stressful or expensive occasion if some thought and planning go into it.
