Valentine’s Day is not a holiday that I typically put a lot of time, effort, or thought into.
It’s just a month after our anniversary and a couple of weeks after Jackson’s birthday (and still so close to Christmas!) and honestly, by the time February rolls around I’m just a little tired of celebrating things. I’m ready for a break.
Thankfully, Corey agrees and neither of us take this holiday very seriously. Some years we’ll make each other a little gift, some years we do nothing. Last year, he sent flowers to me at work, which was a lovely surprise but honestly probably the biggest gesture either of us has ever done for Valentine’s Day.
But! This year I’m feeling a little more inspired. The last few months have been busy and difficult and exhausting for the both of us, and I think we could both use a little extra love this Valentine’s Day. The only problem? After our big 5-year anniversary date and Jackson’s birthday party, our budget for celebrations is at about $0. I figure I’m probably not the only one looking for some creative ways to celebrate on the cheap, so I rounded up more than 30 ideas for how you can make this Valentine’s Day a little special, without spending a ton of time or money!
