Money Saving Tips for Valentine's Day

Whether you’re a romantic at heart, or just want to treat that special someone, Valentine’s Day can be a burden on your finances. Don’t worry, you can still have a Valentine’s Day to remember with our money saving tips and advice.

Get creative 

There’s no need to spend a fortune on expensive jewellery or an equally wallet-busting gift. Get creative; make a photo collage of all your favourite memories together, write a poem or create an origami rose. Let’s be honest, anyone can buy a dozen roses, but the gifts that you’ve taken time out to make are the ones that your other half will appreciate the most.

A night in for two 

Get the candles on and prepare your partner’s favourite dish. It’s the recipe for a lovely romantic evening. Plus staying in is much cheaper than going out.

Deal or no deal 

If you love eating out and don’t want to miss out, make the most of deals and vouchers. Take a look at discount voucher websites. You’ll be amazed at some of the great discounts available. This way you can avoid the dishes and still save yourself money.

Fun it up 

Want to feel like a teenager again? Find activities that will bring out your inner child such as, bowling, mini golf and laser tag. This is a cheaper alternative to a meal out and is a fun way to save money, whilst having a Valentine’s Day full of laughs.

Move the date 

Who said you had to celebrate on the day. Move the date and celebrate a few days later. All the flowers, cards and chocolates will be discounted and the restaurants that removed their deals for the evening will have them back on. It’s a win win for you and your wallet.
