Fun Valentines day ideas if you’re on a budget


Valentine’s day is coming up…

so that means all of the good restaurants are probably booked and everything else cost a ton of money. This is where Pinterest comes in handy so you can create and share fun DIY ideas. Pinterest is my favorite website ever. I’ve made so many cool recipes in the past and I swear by it. My favorite thing to do is find cookie or cupcake recipes to make because everyone loves them and it’s delicious. Honestly though I really make them for myself.

My Valentines day Pinterest board is filled with decor, food, and fun activities. I  wish I was one of those people who went all out during the holidays. I’ve always been envious of those people who can’t wait to decorate their house or apartment. Even if you’re not one of those people you can still enjoy the holidays on a budget. I’m all about saving money and having fun at the same time. I’m sharing some Pinterest ideas below you can try out this Valentine’s day. Another thing you have to get out of the way is your Valentine’s day outfit. Are you going casual or full-on glam? I found this pink dress from Primark and I think it’s a great choice if you’re not sure what to wear.

The weather forecast is looking like the weather will be nice for Valentine’s day so your outfit options are endless. Don’t forget to check out my Pinterest ideas below before you head out! Thanks for reading.

Budget-friendly Valentine’s day ideas 

1.Chocolate Covered Strawberries c/o Life Love Liz 

Chocolate covered strawberries are so easy to make and delicious. Add a little something extra to each strawberry and put some sprinkles or fudge drizzle on it.

2. Gluten Free Red Velvet Waffles c/o My Southern Hot Mess Blog 

Waffles are always a good idea! And your significant other would love to wake up to breakfast in bed. Extra points if you shape them into a heart.

3.  Valentine’s day bouquet with candy hearts c/o Smart School House 

I’m not a fan of candy hearts but this is such a cute idea! It’s such an easy decoration to make that’s full of color and candy.

4. Romantic Bath idea

This is kind of extra but I would love to come into the bath and see this spread. Champagne, fruit, and candles? Sign me up!
