I’ll admit that I’m not as crazy for V-Day as I once was. The romance is still there, but my husband and I quit getting extravagant with our gifts once more of our money started going toward diapers. Still, it’s the little things that can touch your heart, so why not start small with a personalized gift that won’t break the bank? Here are our favorite tips:
Last Minute Valentine Cakes on the Fly– Myscha makes bakin’ up some love seem simple. Maybe because it really is!
Couplehood: Avoiding the Valentine’s Clichés – Some might call Andrea cynical. We call her amazing. Read up on how to avoid being put into some kind of predictable “love box,” and gain some frugal inspiration at the same time.
Valentine Ideas for the Single Crowd – I know. Not everyone is “lucky in love.” But some would consider themselves pretty darn lucky to be single. (This one’s for you.)
Flower Power: A Guide to Frugal Valentine’s Flowers – Roses are a racket, but that doesn’t mean you have to forgo the flowers. This guide can save your marriage (and at least $50.)
Cheap and Romantic Ideas for Valentine’s Day – Perfect for any day of the year, these are just plain sweet (and many are free!)
There’s no excuse to avoiding a great gift, just because you’re a little strapped this holiday. If in doubt, a modern version of the mix-tape is always a great idea. To help you out, we’ve teamed up with Walmart and Nestle to give one of you lucky readers an 8GB iPod Touch – perfect for uploading your favorite tunes from Walmart.com (or any of the top love songs picked by the 11Moms.) We’ll even throw in a gift card for your first 10 songs!
To be eligible to win, comment on this post with your favorite frugal V-Day tip. You have until February 10th to enter. (Winner will be announced on February 14th!) U.S. and Canada only. Must be 18 or older to enter.
