When we think of Valentine’s Day we think of chocolates, expensive dinners, wine, flowers, and giant soft toys – it’s no surprise that the average American will spend an average of $140 on their partner every year!

We don’t think love should be based on how much you spend, if you are looking for ways to cut costs in this New Year then here’s our guide to having a fun and romantic valentines day without blowing your budget.

Here are our top 5 ideas for Valentine’s savings. Keep the fire alive in your relationship and the balance healthy in your bank account.

Skip it!

Although this might not be the answer you are looking for, a lot can be said about rescheduling your celebration of love. Candy and similar Valentine’s Day items are likely to see huge discounts after the date. Take the day off and set a date in the future to take advantage of all that cheap candy and chocolate.

Home cooking.

Instead of shelling out for the usual restaurant experience and being rolled by expensive “holiday special” menus why not find an interesting recipe you both would love to cook together. Time spent in the kitchen together can reinforce relationships, build trust, and you might even get an edible meal from it.

Home spa.

This idea involves stocking up on some relatively cheap facial scrubs and masks and pampering the night away. Share stories treat each other to foot rubs, oil treatments, and back massages and you will be seeing the romance in no time at all. There are many recipes for homemade scrubs and treatments available online.

DIY present.

Show your love with a custom handmade gift – it can be anything from a painting to a coupon book, or even an old school mixtape (maybe a Soundcloud mix?). You don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars to show someone you love them, just some well-spent time and effort will go a long way to showing how much you care.

Affordable romantic getaway.

Who says you can’t go for a romantic getaway while saving money? But you should be patient and look online for deals on hotels, lodges, etc. You may also consider staying in an affordable romantic winery lodging!

Hunt for coupons.

Start preparing early and search sites for activity coupons and giveaways – if you are looking for gift coupons then there is no better place than Vipon, but, there are also hundreds of sites out there that offer discounts on relaxing day spa’s, couples activities, and more.

    That’s a crazy amount! I had no idea the average American spends an average of $140 on their partner every year. We just don’t have the budget for that!

    I always joke that I celebrate National Half-Priced Chocolate Day, which falls the day after Valentine’s Day. I think it’s my favorite holiday!

    Look for something special you can do together for free. It may be a walk in the park (weather permitting), a visit to a museum that doesn’t charge admission, a public concert. Just because you don’t have money doesn’t mean you can’t have a fun experience. It just takes a little searching online, a phone call to a local theatre to see if you can usher to earn a couple of tickets to a show, or browsing the events section of your local newspaper.
