Valentine's Day is a special day for every couple. It is the day you should express your feelings for your partner and how special he/she is for you. You can make Valentine s Day memorable in many ways for you and your lover. An unforgettable day does not have to be expensive for you. There are many inexpensive ideas for having a great time with your lover. It is quite possible to enjoy Valentine's Day on a tight budget. Here are seven tips to save money while still having a great Valentine's Day.

Choose an Inexpensive Restaurant

Pay complete attention to detail and choose an inexpensive restaurant. You have to make sure that the eatery you select is cozy. Moreover, the atmosphere should be perfect for spending time with your lover. You are in luck because most of the coziest dining places are relatively inexpensive. If you choose well, you can save yourself good money and have a great time regardless.

Go Frugal on the Flowers

Does it really make a difference whether you buy one flower or a dozen? Since flowers are a traditional Valentine's Day gift, it is hard to avoid them. What you can avoid is the price tag that florists charge for them, especially on Valentine s Day. Instead, head to a supermarket and buy your flowers there. You will definitely get them cheaper and without much difference in the quality.

Avoid the Cheesiness

Movies have a lot to do with the cheesiness associated with Valentine's Day. What it means for you is that you have to spend more money on buying gifts for him/her. Go around the frivolities and just focus on having a good time with your lover. There is no need for heart-shaped balloons and teddy bears!

Select the Right Wine

A good wine does not have to be expensive. Choose one that is affordable but of a good quality. Spending $30 to $40 on wine is not a good idea as you can spend that money elsewhere. Good wines are available for $5 to $15 and you do not need to break the bank to buy them.

A Long Drive

Take a long drive to the place where you two first met. The place holds a special meaning for the two of you and it should be a good spot to spend a special day. Moreover, it will only cost you the price of gas for the trip!

Please Your Partner

Pot everyone has an expensive taste and choices. Maybe your lover is a pizza guy/girl and a couple of slices in your living room would be good enough to please him/her. Make sure that whatever you choose to do is your partner's preference.

Keep the Romance Central

A kiss, cuddle or walk in the moonlight is more romantic than a candlelight dinner at the most expensive restaurant in the city. Keep the romance central and try to make the day as romantic as possible.
