14 Cheap But Unique Valentine’s Day Gifts

We have found ten of the best Valentine’s Day gifts to give if you’re on a budget (and who isn’t these days?).

1) Create an indoor picnic with available props, i.e., picnic tablecloth, paper goods. Share finger foods and favorite treats along with a glass of wine. Spice up “dessert.” Enjoy your picnic on the living room floor or in bed. Play card games,board games, or make up your own.

2) Decorate a unique-looking jar or box with craft items. Write numerous love notes on small pieces of paper and fill the jar with them. Present the jar to your sweetheart.

3) Make a framed group of photos that put your relationship in chronological order of events, by months or years (depending on how long you’ve been together).

4) Create a favorite drink together. Try all kinds of ingredients. Enjoy taste-testing. Be sure to record the ingredients, so you can make the “your” drink again on Valentine’s Day year after year.

5) Create an at-home spa day for your mate. Deliver the gift in a basket filled with inexpensive candles, bubble bath, rose petals, facial mask and scrub. Then give your mate time to enjoy it. When he/she is done, heat up towels in the dryer for drying off.

6) Watch an old movie at home together, with popcorn and soft drinks and candy--movie-theater style.

7) When you make that special dinner…Just like when you go to a fancy event and a “dinner menu” is put on each plate describing each food item, do something similar. For example, on your menu, write “Spaghetti & Meatballs, made with passion to be with YOU.” Don’t forget to give your “event” or “restaurant” a name at the top of the menu. For couples with children, get them involved in an all-family fun Valentine’s Day dinner at home. Mom can prepare a dessert for two (Chocolate covered strawberries, perhaps) and light the candles while dad puts the kids to bed.

cool Plan a scavenger hunt. Write clues and place them in envelopes, and place the envelopes around town. Make the final clue a doozey of a destination.

9) What did you do on your very first date? Repeat it.

10) Write new “updated” wedding vows, both serious and humorous, and share them with each other over a glass of wine in a candlelit room.
