Money problems? Celebrate love at home

February is a month to celebrate love. However, with the pressures associated with the expectations of the day, many struggle to come up with the perfect idea for the perfect day.

But, celebrating love isn’t just about swiping the credit card. Here are five Valentine's Day ideas to make your significant other special in the comfort of your home and without spending a fortune!

1# Have a picnic


Spread a blanket, dim the lights, push the sofas aside, sit next to the window, light a candle and have a picnic. This could consist of simple mini sandwiches or a fancy cheese platter and cold cuts. Either way, you will create an intimate setting which will bring you closer together.

2# Dinner at home

Cook a meal together and dress up for the occasion. Decorate with candles and flowers and enjoy an affectionate conversation reminiscing about when you first met.

3# Watch a romantic film together

The list of recommended romantic films is extensive, from great classics like 'Gone with the Wind' to modern day romantics such as 'The Notebook'. Enjoy a film with snacks for a cozy evening.

4# Play a game together

Whether a board game or a video game, you can have a fun-filled active night challenging each other and sharing some laughs.

5# Write your life-long bucket list together

Instead of going back to memory lane, you can write down a bucket list of things you want to do together and plan to create some new memories.

You can also try swapping homes with your friends if the daily environment seems a bit of drag. Having dinner, barbequing or just watching a video at someone else’s house changes the atmosphere and the mood.
