Show your sweetheart how much you care this year by taking a pass on the usual card and box of chocolates and making this Valentine’s Day a special one. Don’t have the bank account for extravagant gifts? Don’t worry. Here are some low cost (but, highly effective) ways to show your valentine how much you care.
Inexpensive Ways to Show Your Valentine Just How Much You Care
Take Your Love to the Kitchen
Remember the old adage, “The quickest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”? Bake your valentine a plate of fudge brownies or cook him his favorite meal. Not very good in the kitchen? No worries. Give these unbaked fudge cookies a try. We used a heart cookie cutter in honor of Valentine’s Day. You may also want to try these delectable sweet treats:

- No-Bake Chocolate Covered Cookie Dough Bars
Break a Sweat
Your valentine works hard. Show him you appreciate all he does by giving him the day off from his regular chores. Not only will he love seeing you push the lawn mower around the yard, but you’ll be able to skip the gym for the day too! Of course you can also go do something active together as a couple! Go on a hike or walk on the beach during sunset. You don’t have to spend money to have fun!
Make it a Game
Who doesn’t love a little fun? Create a game for your valentine to show him all the reasons why he’s special. Try jotting down the reasons why you love him on scraps of paper and putting them inside red balloons. Challenge him to pop as many as he can in one minute. Or, put together a scavenger hunt and make him search for clues that will lead to a list of your favorite memories together. Get creative!
