I don’t think anyone should ever stress about spending too much money on a holiday to show their loved one how much they love them.  A spouse should shower their significant other with love all year round.

To me, it’s the little, thoughtful gifts that count.  I much rather spend valuable time with someone than splurge on gifts.  I also don’t think Valentine’s Day is just a day for lovers; Valentine’s Day is about love, so why not share the day with friends and family if you don’t have a significant other to spend that special day with.  Since I’m not big on spending for days like this, here are some Valentine’s day ideas for you and your significant other or closest friends, without spending a lot of money.

Valentine’s Day for Singles

1.  Girls/Boys Night Out – We do this every weekend, but just think, everyone who is single is going to be out because they know other singles will be out.  Going out this weekend is definitely a great way to meet new people.

2.  Dinner with friends –Go out to dinner with a group of your single friends.  Everyone is going to be looking to do something anyway, so a great dinner is always fun. My friends seem to always start controversial conversation (guys vs. girls) so it’s never a dull moment.

3.  Girls Night In – Don’t want to spend money on a dinner out, have a night in.  Gather some of your closest girlfriends, favorite dessert and wine (or liquor) and have a girls night.  Movies, conversation, games, etc.

Valentine’s Day for Couples

1.  Dessert & Movie night – Snuggle up with your significant other and have a movie night.  Enjoy desserts and wine while watching some of your favorite movies.

2. Dinner @ Home for Two – I know, dinner would cost money and we’re trying to be frugal.  Have dinner at home.  Go shopping, come home and prepare your favorite meal together.

3.  Date Night Out - Check out places like Washington Wine Academy.  They offer wine tasting, comedy & the Princess Bride Movie for only $8.  For more information, http://www.arlingtondrafthouse.com/?page=event&eid=591.  You and your significant other can go to dinner and a movie anytime; use V-Day as an opportunity to have a more creative date night.
