3 Ways to Save When Buying for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to show the love of your life how much they mean to you. Giving flowers and candy is the traditional way to celebrate this holiday but things have changed a lot through the years. For example, buying a dozen red roses and a box of grommet chocolates has skyrocketed in price. In addition, not everyone wants these traditional gifts for Valentine’s Day.

Instead of automatically going the traditional route, consider a few non-traditional ideas that your sweetheart may enjoy even more and save money at the same time.

Here are three ways to save when buying for Valentine’s Day:

  1. Instead of buying that bouquet of red roses, consider buying one rose or choose a different type of flower all together. Some great options include tulips, carnations, daisies, orchids, Lilies and violets. Another option is to buy a potted house plant, which is a great choice for men and women on this special holiday.
  2. Put together a gift basket with special items specifically for your love. You can pick up a basket and ribbon at the craft store. Then fill it with bath products and scented candles, sweets they love and a new CD or that new video game they’ve been wanting since it came out. Even if you spend a few dollars more than you would for a traditional gift, you’re still saving money because you’re giving a gift that will last more than a few days.
  3. Don’t wait until the last day or two to go shopping. When you rush out at the last minute, you may be forced to spend more than you planned because prices are higher the closer you get to the holiday. You may not be able to find the gift you wanted, which means you have to settle for something else that may cost a lot more. Even if you’re giving flowers, you can order them in advance and have them delivered or pick them up on Valentine’s Day.

More people understand the importance of saving money today than ever before as the cost of living continues to rise. You need to be more conservative but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate and buy something nice for your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day. It simply means that you need to look for less expensive ways to get your message across and the tips above can help.
