Savings Tip: Valentine’s Day

With Valentine’s Day only two days away, it may seem like it’s too late to create memorable moments without spending a fortune. But there is still time, and many affordable ways, to celebrate with your favorite valentine.

Get crafty
For those with children, the holiday is a great opportunity to break out the glue, glitter and safety scissors and create home made valentines. Visit MarthaStewart.com for several craft ideas including hand-shaped valentines and bookmarks.

Sweets for your sweetie
Show your love and affection with homemade treats like Real Simple’s Eat Your Heart Out cupcake with a red raspberry heart on top.

Recycle old into new
Remember when a mix CD (or tape) was the ultimate sign of affection? Cool Mom Tech takes that idea high tech with an idea for repurposing your old MP3 player. Clear out the memory, then fill it back up with a custom play list.

Send a video valentine
Insert pictures of you and your loved one into one of the Valentine’s Day video cards at JibJab.com. Your sweetie will be surprised to see you both appearing in videos as famous couples including Sonny & Cher or Sandy and Danny.

Whatever you do, we hope you have a Happy Valentine’s Day!
