It ‘s getting closer to the most romantic day, Valentine’s Day! I thought I would share some frugal Valentine’s Day gift ideas. Hopefully this will help you give some great, personal gifts without spending a fortune. It really is the thought that counts!
Personal Coupon Book: I have actually given this one year and my boyfriend loved it. You just get some note cards or pretty stationary and create your own coupon book filled with fun ideas like foot massages, date nights, doing your loved one’s chores, etc. Whatever you think your partner will love, just make a coupon for it that they can redeem throughout the year.
Plant Flowers: Now this will depend on what the temperature is like where you live, but instead of giving a dozen roses, plant some flowers that your partner can enjoy for years to come. If it isn’t warm enough to plant them, just buy a potted plant and you can plant it when the temperatures get warmer.
Daily Deal Sites: If you want to give the traditional gifts like spa treatments, jewelry, chocolates, and flowers; make sure you check out all the daily deal sites. I know that Groupon has a ton of great gifts for over 50% off regular prices. You can also check Restaurant.com for great deals if you are planning to go out for dinner. .
Give Them a Day Off: This is especially appreciated by moms. Do all the chores and responsibilities around the house that are usually your partner’s. It is so nice to come home to a clean house with dinner already cooked. This is probably the best present you could give in my opinion!
Make a Spa Basket: With all the sales we see at the drugstores, you can easily put together a gift basket full of great spa items for under $10. Think of using nail polish, body wash, bath salts, moisturizer, cleanser, candles and much more. Check out my posts for ways to save at Ulta if you want to get some higher end products.
Shop After Valentine’s Day: This may not work for everyone, it will depend on you and your partner, but you can wait to celebrate Valentine’s Day after the 14th. My boyfriend and I have done this for a few years especially when the holiday falls in the middle of the week since we work different schedules. We will usually wait until the following weekend to celebrate. This usually means all of the Valentine’s gifts are at least 50% off and we don’t have to deal with crowded restaurants.
These are some of my favorite frugal Valentine’s Day gift ideas. I enjoy showing the ones I love just how much I appreciate them. Do you have anything special that you do?
