Don’t fret – just because you are tight on cash doesn’t mean you can’t do something nice for your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day – it just means you have to be more creative!
How about a scavenger hunt inside your house? Sure, it might seem cheesy at first, but think of all the “things” you can do for your sweetheart at each stop along the way? Do they like chocolate and whip cream by chance? Or maybe a foot massage? Now you’re catching my drift ;).
Do you know how to cook? Why not take the time to make your sweetheart something they love to eat or maybe prepare a meal together? There are lots of great low budget meal ideas on the Internet – low budget that includes lamb chops?! Or, what about Risotto with Fresh Mozzarella, Grape Tomatoes, Basil and Balsamic Reduction? Or, Risotto with Italian Sausage Caramelized Onions and Bitter Greens? You’d be surprised what delicious recipes you can prepare for under $35 (including the bottle of wine).
Or, no need to prepare an entire meal? Maybe you start with a low key evening, grabbing Pho and a movie to go, and surprise your sweetheart with dessert…dessert in bed! How YOU doin’? 🙂 Thinking something like chocolate dipped strawberries and champagne sounds fun!
Here are some other ideas I found on the Internet – happy smooching!
