|You know that tingly little feeling you get when you like someone? That's your common sense leaving your body.|
Love is in the air, everywhere you look around. Love is in the air, and it needn't cost a pound.
Whenever you're a bit brassic after Christmas or you refuse to get swept along by the tide of consumerism, the following thrift list is for you.
Money-saving Ideas for Valentine's Day:
1. Breakfast in Bed:
Think red napkins, soft boiled eggs and buttered bread cut in to heart shapes.
2. First Date Redux:
Visit that special place as you did the first time. Wear the same aftershave, even the same shirt if you can fit in to it.
If it's a clear night, print off a star map, pack warm blankets, hot chocolate and head off to a country lane. Find a star and mark it with a special name and arrange to go back next year and say Hi.
4. At Home Bistro:
A romantic meal for two is fine, but make it even more special with a printed menu or chalk board, checkered table cloths, candles and fairy lights. Save the washing up until morning.
5. The Love Dice Game:
I stumbled across this romantic game of chance earlier on Pinterest so I'll take no credit, but it may well do the trick :
6. Valentine's Vouchers:
Bubble baths and foot massages etc. to be redeemed at any time over the next 12 months.
7. I Love You More Than My iPhone:
Go technology-free for the whole evening, except music of course. If you have a turntable and can get your hands on some Barry White then all the better.
8. Message in a Bottle:
Express the love you share for each other in a poem, roll it up in a glass bottle along with some photos and watch the tide take it away. Include your email address of you want to see how far your love will travel.
9. Love Time Capsule:
Similar to above but use a nice tin and bury it deep under a paving stone or a nice flowering shrub.
10. Have Lots of Sex:
Call it making love, if you prefer. It's not compulsory on Valentine's Day but it's free after all.
So that's my 10 Free or Cheap Valentine's Day Ideas, do leave your ideas below!
