Budget-Friendly At-Home Valentine's Day Ideas

Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and like many, I will be celebrating Valentine's Day at home. I thought it would be cool to share some of my favorite budget-friendly Valentine's Day ideas to inspire you to think outside of the box. You really don't have to have a million dollars to have the perfect day. It really just takes some time and a little effort.

Menu

What I love about the menu is that it's totally up to you. You can go with seafood, Latin, West Indian or Italian theme or a mixture of all. You can even create a printable menu on Canva.com, and use YouTube, Pinterest, or simply Google for recipe inspiration. 

Dessert

You can easily purchase your favorite desserts like chocolate-covered strawberries or make your own using one of my favorite recipes here. If you're not into chocolate-covered strawberries you can also purchase whipped topping or honey or even make stuffed strawberries. Do what works for you! Wholesale clubs typically have strawberries for under $10, and I've found some with the stem on them as well around Valentine's Day. 

Roses

Wholesale clubs have roses for a wonderful price all year long. Costco has a great selection/price, and I've used them in the past to purchase roses on a whim. 

Ambiance

Creating the perfect ambiance for your home can be as simple as using tea light candles. I like to bring it up a notch and use battery-operated candles and of course for safety reasons as well. I have these candles here and love them. 

Love Notes

Why not leave love notes! Each note would explain all of the reasons I love your spouse. Another option is putting little notes on a mirror in your bedroom or bathroom (in red, black, or pink of course).

Tip: Recycle paper, old cards, and string to save money.

Creating a romantic atmosphere for a massage is a must! Simply purchasing silk roses from the Dollar Tree, craft store or Walmart can make a big impact. You can also purchase candles from the same stores, and don't forget about the massage oil. Which can be really expensive. Opting to use olive oil, coconut oil, jojoba, and Sweet almond oil. Can be a great alternative. Also, make sure to put your oil in a pretty container!

Tip:
Use what you have at home, and what you can afford. Search online for massage oil recipes.

Do you have any budget-friendly Valentine's Day tips?

  21. I'm planning an at home dinner with a few of my single friends. It will be an early evening as we currently have curfew here. I send out invitations via canva. I find people really like getting an invitation even if it is electronic.
