It’s here! The week where Romance and Love is highest in the air. So are the prices of all things lovely, from flowers to chocolates, dinner to staycations and anything that ends with love in it.

If only there is a way not to put our wallets on the chopping board this year. The reality is, spend a whole lot of money is not the only way to show your other half that you care. Flowers seem to be a ‘must-have’ on this special day but we can always skip the tradition and go instead for something more unique.

Here are some money saving ways

1) Prepare a dinner together at home. Create a romantic atmosphere by playing soft music and lighting some candles should help.

2) Create DIY greeting carfs, flowers and handmade gifts specially for this occasion.
3) Watch movies at home instead of going to the theater.
