Affordable Valentines

February 6, 2017

By Dina Isola

Making Valentine’s Day special doesn’t have to break the bank. If actions speak louder than words, you can make a statement this Valentine’s Day without spending a dime. Here are some of my favorite ways to say “I love you.”

  1. Make his favorite dinner. Put the kids to bed, light candles and put on soft music. Finish dinner with a slow dance.
  2. Write him a love letter. Tell him all the reasons why you love him more today than your first Valentine’s Day together.
  3. Dress the part. Is there an outfit (or lingerie) he loves to see you in? Perfume he loves? Make sure to wear it for him.
  4. Rub him the right way. Get every ounce of tension out of him, and let him return the favor, with a hot oil massage.
  5. Collect those special memories. Compile songs, photos, family videos, anything that has a special meaning to you both and make a collage, montage, or album.
  6. Indulge him with attention and affection. Hugs, kisses, and thanks all go a long way to letting him know how happy you are that he’s your man.
  7. Give him lots of rainchecks. Make your own “loving” coupon book that he can redeem whenever he wants for some special attention. Wink. Wink.
  8. Share his interests. Vow that you’ll talk with him about a hobby or interest that he has — that you don’t. Let him get fired up talking about what makes him passionate.
  9. Shower him with attention. Make room in the tub, or shower, to slather each other with your favorite smelling bath salts/soaps.
  10. Give him your undivided attention. Don’t answer the phone tonight. Just make it about the two of you.
