How to Have an Inexpensive Romantic Valentines Day

An Inexpensive Romantic Valentine's Day at Home

A Fireside Picnic -- Have the couch pulled up in front of the fireplace and have some champagne chilled. For that extra special oomph, use strawberries to bring out the champagne's flavor. Also, you can put some pomegranate seeds into the liquid to tinge the bubbly a pinkish color. If you like (or can) cook, make a Romantic Valentine's Day meal. If you can't cook, or don't have the time, order in from your favorite place; make sure to throw out the packaging and use your nice plates for the meal. Don't forget the romantic music playing in the background.

Spa Night When your love gets home, have a hot bath filled with rose petals waiting. Because roses are normally expensive around Valentines Day, ask your local florist for a package of rose petals, short stemmed roses, or for what are called seconds; seconds are roses that are slightly bruised. They can be used because you won't be giving them in a traditional way. Have a glass of wine and some chocolates on hand by the side of the bath.

While she's soaking in that romantic bath, get that bedroom ready! Cover the bed with towels warm and fresh out of the dryer. Get a large bowel of warm water near the bed, several washcloths and some spa products. Start with an exfoliating rub like the a salt scrub. Wash it off then massage in a great moisturizer. Go for the extra special touch of giving a wonderful foot rub. Afterwards, you two can relax and eat in bed while you watch a sappy, er, romantic movie.

It doesn't take alot of money to enjoy a romantic valentines day.
