Budget Friendly Valentine’s Day.

It’s the most romantic day of the year, and the temptation to splash out on cards and gifts for your loved one can feel a little over-whelming. We have some helpful tips and tricks to make the day special without spending a fortune.

Date Night  

Eating out for Valentine’s Day may be a romantic thing to do, however it can be an expensive treat. Why not have a look at what meal deals the supermarkets have on offer? Tesco have a Valentine’s meal deal which includes mains, sides, dessert and a drink (alcohol included) for only £10.

If you do decide to eat out for Valentine’s Day, have a look for discount vouchers that will save you money on your food bill. Websites like Vouchercloud have many discounts available for a wide selection of restaurants.


If you want to get your special someone a gift, make sure to shop around. Some fantastic gifts can be picked up from shops like Poundland, B&M and Asda without breaking the bank. You don’t have to spend a fortune to let someone know how special they are.

Movie Night. 

Spend some quality time together watching a film. Cinemas have lots of offers through their websites for cheap tickets, or use Groupon to get tickets discounted. Curling up on the sofa and watching a film at home is another romantic way to spend time together.

Bake some sweet treats.

If you are spending Valentine’s Day with the kids, why not bake some sweet treats? This is an activity they will love to get involved with and everyone can enjoy. There are plenty of simple recipes for Valentine’s treats that anyone can follow, like this for rice krispies Valentines lollipops.

Make a card.

Get some card, felt tip pens and some craft bits, and make a Valentine’s card for your special someone. It will be more personal than a shop bought card, and will mean a lot more to the person who receives it. You can even get the kids involved to keep them busy, and they can make their own special card.

Spend time together.

If your partner loves football, but it’s not really your thing, why not attend a game with them for Valentine’s Day? This will show them how much they mean to you, and then in return they can take part in one of your interests.
