Love is in the Air: Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, the annual celebration of love, and one of the busiest times of the year for flower and chocolate shops. In fact, according to the National Retail Federation, this year the average consumer will spend $126.03 to buy chocolates, champagne, jewelry and other gifts for family, friends, significant others and pets. If you’re still finalizing your plans and gifts, consider giving something that will express your feelings without hurting your wallet. Here are a few budget friendly ideas.

Stay in: There is a widespread belief that Valentine’s Day should be celebrated by going out to dinner. But don’t underestimate the romance of a dinner at home. You can have the food you want, relax and just enjoy each other’s company, rather than sharing your night with a room full of strangers.

Think simple: Sometimes the simplest gifts carry the most meaning. Maybe there’s a household chore that your loved one hates doing that you can take care of for them. Or think back to a memorable date, like your first, and recreate it; dates at the beginning of relationships are frequently much less expensive, but carry fond memories.

Be creative: A gift with thought is worth more than a gift with a large price tag. Think about your loved ones favorite things, or some of your favorite memories and expand on it. Maybe there’s an odd candy they love that you can buy in bulk. Or maybe there was a time the car broke down and you were stuck for hours—take this memory and set up a romantic dinner in the car saying how you wouldn’t want to break down with anyone else.

Remember, Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate your relationships with those you love, and should not be the cause of added stress, financial or otherwise. Take a breath, relax and remember that relationships are not determined by the amount of money spent, but by the happiness that is created.
