Valentine’s Day can be a tough holiday to celebrate. It’s become over-commercialized, making you feel like you have to spend a certain amount of money.
But really, Valentine’s Day is just a reminder to show the person you love, that you love them. Obviously this should be a year-round thing, but having a day dedicated to it isn’t so bad. Showing someone you love them can be as simple as spending time with them (and giving them your full attention), planning a fun activity together or writing them a nice note/telling them how important they are to you.
Of course, you may also want to give your valentine a gift. Here’s a list of some gift ideas I put together, ranging in price from $6 to $225.
