One of the least romantic days of the year is Valentine’s Day. Yes you heard me correctly. The majority of men act like robots, purchasing flowers and chocolate for their sweethearts because that is what everyone else is doing. Many people celebrate the day out of obligation rather than celebration, well it has to be done l.o.l

Here are some ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day a bit more romantically and creatively. and on a budget. this applies to both genders.

This year I decided to be a little creative and yet try to save a little money while doing something special for Valentine’s. I am going to do the 12 Days of Valentine’s. Starting 11 days before Valentine’s, I will leave little gifts for my loved one to find.

Day 1 – one balloon that says “I Love You”;

Day 2 – two coupons for various special favors or treats;

Day 3 – three love songs, some taped and some written words, that mean something special to us;

Day 4 – four love poems, I found on a postcard site and hand written;

Day 5 – five terms of endearment;

Day 6 – six chocolate candy hearts;

Day 7 – seven flowers;

Day 8 – eight heart shaped cookies;

Day 9 – nine message heart candies;

Day 10 – ten reasons (of the millions) why I love him;

Day 11 – eleven Hershey’s hugs and kisses;

Day 12 (Valentine’s) – twelve ways to say “I Love You”, languages.

I am still in the process of trying to figure out if I want to leave them in the same spot to be found at the same time every day, or if I want it to be more random. This was a lot of fun planning and didn’t cost much at all with our “poor student” budget. I think it will be very memorable.
