I’ve always been a big believer that you don’t have to spend money to have a good time. And you don’t have to spend money to show someone you care.
Obviously money does buy nice things if you have it, but ‘i have no money’ is the worst excuse in the whole entire book.
(Girls take the hint).
Understandably, some boys don’t think like us girls and have NO idea, so they simply need a shove in the right direction.

With a little help from Pinterest and my FAVOURITE online shop Not On The Highstreet I have put together a little guide…
Let’s kick it off with Breakfast in bed…
Chocolate decorated Strawberries and a glass of champagne.
Sharpie pen some cheesy lines onto some fruit for breakfast…
Leave notes around the house and on the bed. Now that really does cost nothing, but honestly it’s the cutest thing as a girl to find.
(The one above was actually one left for me 🙂 )
Make dinner / do some baking.
Balloons! Grab 3 ballons and write a significant date on the balloons, e.g. date you met, date you got engaged or simply ‘blah ♡ blah’
I LOVE this idea of filling a room with balloons…
Heart shaped EVERYTHING! ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡
Maybe go out for dinner, or create dinner yourself in a special setting…
…organise picnics, rowing boats, all that stereotypical stuff!
Write something on the mirror with a lipstick!
Girls, use that colour that is collecting dust.
Boys, DO NOT STEAL A LIPSTICK WITHOUT PERMISSION!
(You can get them super cheap for a pound or 2 in Tesco/Boots!)
Cover the bed in pillow feathers, rose petals, or…. SWEETS!
‘Your side, My side’ Pillows.
My best friend got me mine for Christmas…
I guess you could say that was quite feminine based… but boys secretly love all of that too! Breakfast in bed – basically anything to do with food, boys are a LOT more easily pleased!
Just use your imagination and show them you care without caving into the high restaurant and commercial prices!
I’ll be back with more Valentine baking ideas at the beginning of next week! ♡
P.s. Please do come and join me on…
