The season of love is upon us. With love in the air, the pressure to express your love materialistically increases. But isn’t love what happens when two hearts find their happy place right beside each other? What we mean to say is that you can celebrate Valentine’s Day without giving a blow to your wallet when you have the right person beside you.
Valentine’s Day promotes the notion that romance should be celebrated as a special occasion, but we think otherwise, we believe that romance is in the little things in life, for example, saying ‘ I love you’ early in the morning when they see your face, or ‘making breakfast in bed’ for that matter. If you’ve decided to make this day special for your significant other but want to celebrate economically then here are some drool-worthy ways to propose this Valentine’s Day which are sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face.
- Message Balloons
- DIY Cards
- Long Drives and Precious Time
- Jewelry and Chocolates
- Love Letters/ Emails
- Movie Night or Movie Marathon
- Reasons Why You Love Them
- Getting Tattoos Together
- Dinner for Two
Balloons have made it to the “always cheers us up’ list. Colorful balloons make up for a great ambience and make one feel excited about what all other surprises you have in store for them. So, instead of spending a fortune on a ring to propose to your loved one, stick to message balloons and make your proposal one-of-a-kind. Connect a ribbon to the balloons with cute photographs and handwritten notes to make it even more personalized. We are confident that balloon inscriptions will perfectly express your love thoughts.
Cards have been one of the most romantic ways of expressing one’s feelings especially when you give a personal touch to it. Do it yourself cards are a hit among everyone because who doesn’t love gifts that are thoughtful and sweet! This isn’t going to set you back a fortune, but rather conveys your feelings just the right way! If you want to make your card look professional, you can use one of many interfaces available on the internet for free. We, however, recommend the good old fashioned way of using paper, pen and some props.
Dancing with your partner can be a fun and romantic experience. It doesn’t matter whether you know how to dance or not, just play your favorite track, hold your partner’s hand and dance your heart out. Saying ‘I love you’ to your partner in the middle of your dance will create an unforgettable moment that both of you will cherish forever. You can also start an impromptu dance competition with your partner. Surprise your partner by playing a pop music track all of a sudden when you guys are chilling at home.
You can take inspiration for your surprise dance activity by watching the iconic dance sequence from Pulp Fiction (1994). The famous dance sequence of John Travolta and Uma Thurman from this movie is still etched in the hearts of romantic movie lovers. Imagine dancing all of a sudden in front of your partner and as she watches you, you grab her waist, pull her and you both dance while looking into each other’s eyes. To add more fun to your surprise dance activity, pick her favorite tracks to dance on.
Long Drives and Precious Time
Whether you are still in the initial stage of your relationship or have spent a significant amount of time together, going on long drives to scenic places will never be a no for your partner. Who doesn’t love going on long drives? That said, if you haven’t spent your bucks on buying an expensive gift this year, redeem it by taking her for a long drive and giving all your attention to her. All she wants is your precious time (and some chocolates, because why not?).
Jewelry and Chocolates
Nothing says ‘I love you so much better than a box of chocolates along with a red rose and of course a jewelry box. Be it a proposal ring, a bracelet, earrings, or a pendant, anything jewelry will always be welcomed by your significant other. Every girl adores bling. Jewelry is an investment of your time; it shows the efforts you put in to choose the best for her.
A diamond is an emblem of ‘forever,’ a pendant signifies ‘I’ll be there for you always!’ a ruby symbolizes ‘passion’, and a heart signifies ‘love’. It’s usually easier to communicate with jewelry what you’re too shy to ask in words. If jewelry is the best way to convey your love to your SO then head to gemsny.com to order now!

Love Letters/ Emails
Many people consider buying a mass-produced card and giving it to their loved one, but as said previously, the more personalized the gift is, the more your significant other would feel happy and loved. Writing a love letter on paper or maybe in the technologically advanced era writing an email as a valentine gift will definitely earn you brownie points. You can also send a digital gift message with a nice theme.
Movie Night or Movie Marathon
Movie nights are an opportunity to spend quality time together with your SO. On a special day like Valentine’s Day, one can select all romantic and mushy movies to watch together or any genre you both prefer. An economical way of spending quality time together on a special day! Buy popcorn, munchies, and beverages to enjoy while viewing the film. Remember to acknowledge and thank them for brightening your life.
Reasons Why You Love Them
We are sure that there can’t be enough reasons to describe your love for your significant other, but compiling a list and writing each reason down might bring a smile to their face and so on this day, make them feel warm, loved, and appreciated for who they are!
Need a little help with what all “reason for love” can be written and preserved in a pretty glass bottle? Here are some suggestions!
- I love how well you know how to make me laugh. You are the perfect one for me.
- I love how you leave notes on the refrigerator for me
- Thank you for being my number one rock in difficult situations.
These are just a few of the simple ways to express your love for your sweetheart. When executing any of these, don’t forget to keep screaming “I love you!” It’s sometimes the small things that count, as well as the effort you put in.
Getting Tattoos Together
Do you think she is the one for you? If you think this is the time to make things permanent then getting a tattoo together to celebrate your love can be one of the best gifts for each other. Selecting each other’s tattoos on the basis of how much you know each other is definitely going to be a milestone in your journey together.
Dinner for Two
Food is definitely an integral part of a relationship. If you’re passionate about cooking a meal then thinking about gifting something else would be a crime. Bonding over food, especially when it is cooked by you will definitely make for a special Valentine’s Day. Pouring some wine along with serving good food and playing little romantic music is one of the best ways to propose to your valentine. We are sure that she is going to be extremely impressed by your skills!
