I’m horrible! I forgot it was Valentine’s Day tomorrow. Me?!? I’m a girl. I’m a romantic. I think we should take every chance to celebrate love and I forgot it was Valentine’s Day tomorrow! How sad.
My husband remembered. Even my 2-year-old daughter remembered. I bet my 6-month-old knew, but just couldn’t tell me!
So, here’s my (very, VERY) last minute frugal Valentine’s Day ideas. Hope it helps someone else.
- Serve your significant other breakfast in bed, complete with heart shaped pancakes.
- Snuggle up on the couch together with a free movie from Redbox. Expiration date unknown.
- It’s not too late to get a Restaurant.com gift card or certificate for 80% off if you want to hit the town and enjoy dinner out for less. Expires Feb. 14, 2010.
- Get a free chocolate lava cake with any pizza order from Domino’s with the coupon code HUG. Valid Feb. 14, 2010 only. (Thanks Fast Food Maven!)
- Wait until the kids go to bed, then light candles and enjoy a romantic homemade dinner. Better yet, lay out blanks and have a picnic by the fire or on the floor.
- Don’t want to do dinner? Then how about homemade dessert after the kids go to bed with coffee or champagne.
- Download some very cute free love coupons from Red Plum for your significant other, parents, children, or grandparents. I love the “Ice Cream for Dinner” one! I’d so be up for that!
- Involve the kids in your romantic day and spend the day as a family playing board games, watching movies, playing in the snow, baking sweets, cooking dinner… this list could go on and on! Or even go out together to save money on the babysitter.
- Yes, a dozen roses are romantic, but a one single long stem rose is beautiful and meaningful. Hand made roses that you crafted with the kids are the best though.
- If you live near a Brunswick Celebration Zone, you can print free Valentine’s Day cards that come with one free game of bowling, to have some fun with your family! (Thanks Free Sample Freak!)
How are you planning to celebrate Valentine’s Day? Or how did you celebrate, so I can plan ahead and get some ideas for next year!
