Celebrating Valentine’s day with your partner can be meaningful without needing to be expensive!

Start by focusing on Love Languages

Know (or remind yourself) what your partner’s love language is:-

  • Words of Affirmation
  • Acts of Service
  • Receiving Gifts
  • Quality Time
  • Physical Touch

How do you know your partner (and your own) love language?

And then show your love.


Words of Affirmation

  • Verbally compliment your partner truthfully and meaningfully.
  • Write a handwritten note expressing your love to your partner on this special day.
  • Hide many little notes expressing your love or make it a long note listing 99 reasons why you love him/her.
  • If you’re good at poetry, singing or music, share something special with him/her lyrically.
  • Make a mix tape with his/her favorite songs & throw in a surprise recording of your voice!

Acts of Service

  • Take over doing all the chores for the entire day so that he/she doesn’t need to lift even a single finger.
  • Cook a nice fancy meal that your partner loves. Don’t forget the nice silverware & fancy linen!
  • Plan a delightful picnic with food, drink, a nice blanket, and your picnic basket.
  • Make heart-shaped Valentine’s-day-themed food that are almost too good to eat!

Receiving Gifts

  • Know what your partner really wants (and it doesn’t have to be expensive!) & buy it from your special gift-giving fund 🙂
  • If you must get flowers, arrange to buy roses in bulk with your friends so you get a bulk discount. Non-rose flowers are less expensive. Potted plant are even less expensive &  last all-year long.
  • Surprise your partner with a meaningful gift in his/her bag or delivered to the workplace.
  • Plan a scavenger hunt with various gifts hidden around & clues from one gift to the other.
  • Make a DIY gift basket filled with chocolates, candy, wine, or any other small stuff that your partner loves or uses.

Quality Time

  • Give your partner your undivided time & attention. Put away your phone, gadgets, facebook, twitter, & other distractions.
  • Pick an activity to do together that he/she likes (and if you have kids, arrange/swap for a babysitter).
  • Play tourist in your home city, take a road trip, or explore a beautiful natural location.
  • Go for a movie/show/performance, or sign up for a dance/cooking/art class together.
  • Do what you both used to love doing together from your early dating days (or even pretend that it’s your 1st date!)

Physical Touch

  • Watch your lover’s favorite movie sitting as close as possible to each other (blanket for snuggling optional if it gets cold).
  • Go for a physical activity together like dancing, or ice/skating.
  • Take a romantic walk together just the two of you holding hands everywhere.
  • Get a spa gift card, prepare a home aromatherapy spa, or learn the basics of a good massage & give your best massage ever to your partner.
  • Plan a trip somewhere (or a home vacation) for just the two of you away from everyone else. Hold hands everywhere, walk everywhere joined at the hip & make the effort for physical touch.


Happy Valentine’s Day!

Stay safe, in love & within budget! 😉

    Good writing! Btw.. there’s a book by Gary Chapman on this. Title of the book “The 5 Love Languages”.

    Thanks HM, Yes the love languages are based on Gary Chapman’s book.
