Make Valentine’s Day Special…even on a Budget

Valentine’s Day is about love, so shouldn’t your gifts really show it?

How much do you spend on Valentine’s Day? Twenty dollars on chocolate covered strawberries? Fifty dollars on flowers? One hundred dollars on dinner for two? The totals can rack up, and in these tough economic times, can we justify such expenses so soon after the holidays? No matter how long you’ve been together, you don’t have to go all out and splurge on expensive presents. Sometimes the best and most appreciated gifts are cheap or even free.  For this Valentine’s Day save some money with these ideas- which won’t break the bank, or anyone’s heart.
