You don't need to spend loads of money to make your s/o feel appreciated.
Valentine's day can be expensive to prepare for and to initiate for someone you love and want to make feel special. Though you want your significant other to know how much you care and love them there are so many things that you can do to show how much you appreciate them.
Make them breakfast in bed.Giphy
Cook their favorite breakfast, and bring them it in bed. Make a heart out of strawberries or even whipped cream on their pancakes or french toast. Right away that morning they already know you woke up thinking about them.
Buy them flowers.Giphy
You don't have to spend $100 dollars on expensive flower shop flowers. Grocery stores have flowers that are not as expensive. You can even add an artificial flower and say that "you'll love them till the last flower dies." A cliche but still so cute.
Make them a hand made card.Giphy
Honestly half the time it is hard to even find a card that fits your significant other and your relationship exactly. It doesn't even have to be in card form. Write them a note and stick it in their lunch for the day, or leave it where they can find it when you aren't around.
Cook them their favorite meal.Giphy
Food is always a good option. Get some candles, make a menu, set the table, have some nice music. Make it romantic!
Get items to have a spa night.Giphy
Yes even if you are a guy you can do a face mask. Take some cute selfies. It will be a fun night for the books. You can get facemasks on Amazon, at Target etc. Do face masks, a hair mask, give them a massage, paint their nails, get them a bath bomb or bubbles to relax with.
Make them a mason jar full of papers about how much you love them.Giphy
This is one of the cutest gifts I've received personally. It is a little time-consuming. But you can make this gift with a lot of love and less than $10 dollars.
Cook them dinner, but take them out for dessert.Giphy
Most of the time you are full before desert anyway. So cook them their favorite meal, then get dressed up and go get some fancy desserts. This way you aren't spending so much, but you still are taking them out of the house.
Get their favorite movies, make a tent out of sheets, put some string lights up, lots of pillows and blankets and snacks.Giphy
This is always such a cute, and fun idea to do. Yes it will take a little bit to set up. But you can have it for more than one night if you want. It will be worth it in the end.
You don't have to spend a whole bunch of money, make some huge grand gesture to let your significant other know you care this Valentine's day. You don't have to go overboard, in the end, you will show them you love them either way.
