Valentine hack: Lighthearted, inexpensive valentines will still do the trick for your sweetheart
The lovey-dovey part of Valentine's Day should never be lost on your sweetheart. No matter how cheesy and Hallmark-y you think this holiday is, your partner will be disappointed if you don't recognize it in some small way (even if they SAY they don't really care). We're not talking long-stemmed roses necessarily; there's plenty of room for humor and kindness, too.
My husband and I wanted to make Valentine’s day fun and stress-free. So we have a $14 limit to spend on each other. It eliminates the pressure and expectations. Sometimes I get crafty, and create something like the “key to my heart” which turned out VERY cheesy! And sometimes, like this year, he is getting an assortment of magazines he likes, but just doesn’t buy all that often. It’s just a little treat, but we both love to shop and receive them!
