If you haven’t noticed, it is February. And February means Valentine’s Day. Depending on who you are, what type of relationship you may (or may not) have, and what your traditions are, Valentine’s Day may be just another day, or it may be a hugely big deal. One of the things that I absolutely hate about Valentine’s Day is the idea of spending a lot of money. Candy shouldn’t be expensive (and the stuff in those hearts is often awful) and gifts don’t have more meaning just because of their cost.
In that vein, I’ve put together a list of links, suggesting ways to make Valentine’s Day special without breaking the bank:
- Jennifer Jolly at WiseBread suggests 10 Budget-Friendly Ways to Get It Right This Valentine’s Day and Beyond.

- At Money Help for Christians, Craig and Jeri have listed 10 Unique, Personalized, and Cheap Valentine’s Day Gifts.

One of the surest ways to spend too much on Valentine’s Day is to wait until the last minute to make any plans. Take a few minutes today to figure out what you are going to do next week. Happy Valentine’s Day!
