If you are worried that your finances cannot stretch far enough to give your loved one a ValentineÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Day to remember, realise that the best experience on ValentineÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Day is having your partner come away from it with the absolute knowledge that they are loved, cared about and wanted. Save your money and still have a great ValentineÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Day by doing some of the following:-
1. Spend quality time with a loved one. Cuddle with your significant other on a couch and watch a movie. Try to avoid distractions, such as surfing the internet, chatting on the phone while around people, or deciding to do other things either by yourself or with another group of people.
2. Make a homemade card for your loved one. The card will have more meaning to it if it is created by you instead of a store-bought one. Use your own words to describe the person youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re giving it to. Create a poem or a note of appreciation. Add a little copyrighted symbol on the back of the card for fun.
3. Write your love a long letter, one in which you recall the most emotional parts of your romantic history. Take turns writing these love letters or love poems to each other. Read them out loud.
4. Have a family affair. Have the children help you prepare red jelly with little hearts mixed in, mashed potatoes coloured with pink food colouring, heart-shaped cookies and any other creative ways to present your ValentineÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Day meal.
5. Leave love notes on the pillow, a note on her dressing table mirror, a note on the breakfast table, and a note on the carÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s steering wheel.
6. Enjoy ValentineÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Day alone. Who says that people need a companion for this one day of the year? Treat yourself to a spa or a long bubble bath. Take a long drive and enjoy the scenery. If the weather is too harsh, stay in and watch sports games or that romantic movie.
