Everyone likes to receive flowers, but it can be quite an expensive passion.
Instead of the traditional dozen roses, pick a bunch of wildflowers and leave
them at their door or on their car windshield. You can usually get rose petals
from florist shops. Sprinkle a bunch in the bedroom or in your love's bath.
Another great idea you can try is to make paper flowers.
There's nothing like sweets for your sweet! Splurge a little and spend $5.00 on
your sweetie's favorite candy bars. Be creative and make a poem out of them.
Buy a chocolate chip cookie mix, wrap it up and leave a note attached to it
inviting your partner to make them with you. Surprise your partner with one of
their favorite chocolates from their favorite candy store.
With the Internet, sending cards has never been more frugal, or romantic! You
can find cards to send electronically, or to print out and give in person. You
can also show your creative side and make a card for your love. Use cut-outs,
stickers, stencils or draw your card. Any way you do it, the recipient will
appreciate the effort and the message.
For under $10.00 you can enjoy a romantic dinner for two of pasta, salad and
breadsticks. Or, arrange for a romantic picnic of cheese, crackers and wine.
Whatever you do, the more thought and preparation you put into your meal the
easier, the more economical and the more romantic it will be!
Create a encounter you'll never forget with a few added touches. String white
Christmas lights on your headboard. Light some candles. Have a bottle of
champagne, and a bowl of strawberries and you waiting for your love!.
