Don't go out on Valentines Day.
I found this tip on Inclusive Families and it is a great one at that. Going out on Valentines day itself for a meal is usually more expensive as most places put up the prices, because they can on Valentines Day. Honestly going out a few days before or after can save you a lot of money. Plus everywhere is RAMMED on Valentines Day so not even worth it.
Think outside of the box.
On Valentines Day instead of buying presents for each other, think outside the box for something you can do together and have a fabulous time as well as saving money. My Voucher Codes has some amazing discount codes to use to save even more money, including Virgin Experience Days and Buy A Gift. Both perfect for having the best day out on a budget.
Make your presents!
Not only is making your presents so much more fun, it's also cost effective and saves you a lot of money in the long run. Buying Valentines Day gifts can often come with a hefty price tag.
