The Valentine's Day creep is on- hardcore. Like, the big day is next Wednesday. Money is tight and you think the holiday is complete garbage and that people should show each other love every day, not just on one day but you also know that your love is expecting you do to something. But what?  If you're not sure what to do that won't break the bank, here are three ideas.

    A Home Cooked Meal

    I can't speak for your Valentine, but I detest going out for dinner on Valentine's Day. Usually, restaurants are stuffy and, overcrowded and not comfortable at all. This is your chance to stay home and dine in! Start the day off by serving them breakfast in bed. For dinner, pick up a nice bottle of wine and some candles and if you're an awful cook, just visit the prepared foods section at the grocery store, but don't try to pass it off as your own cooking.

    A Relaxation Session

    Massages, pedicures, and manicures are a wonderful way to relax and be pampered and you can pick up a gift certificate for one of them for well under $50. But, if the thought of someone else massaging your love gives you the creeps, do it yourself. Even if your skills aren't professional level, they'll appreciate the time and effort you put into it.

    The Mix-Tape

    Remember when we were in high school and would record our favorite songs off the radio and make mix tapes? If someone gave you a mix tape, it was seriously romantic and that's what's so awesome about reviving what we used to do as kids. Make a list of songs that remind you of things you've done together and burn the songs onto a CD with a note letting your love know that the songs remind you of special times together. Trust me, they'll love it!
