Did you know that Valentine’s Day has its roots in the ancient Roman festival of Lupercalia? Valentine’s Day started as a pagan festival, then a feast day commemorating St. Valentine, and has since then grown into a global celebration of love.
However, sometimes we get wrapped up in the expectations and pressures of the holiday, and it becomes easy to lose sight of what truly matters. Picking out the right card, gift, and making dinner reservations can be awfully taxing. It is important to remember that true love isn’t about flowers, chocolates, or candle lit dinners. Of course you want it to be special, but make sure your Valentine’s Day plans revolve around you and your loved one, and what makes the two of you happy.
You shouldn’t have to break the bank to show you care. There are plenty of Valentine’s Day gifts and treats that will hardly cost you a dime. Check out these great ideas for Valentine’s Day on a budget.
If you really want to have the best Valentine’s Day ever, all you have to do is make time for your loved one, hold them close, and make sure they know that of out of millions of people on this earth, they are the one you want to spend this special day with. Love is all you need.
