16 Basically Free Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day

In the words of JLo, “My love don’t cost a thing.”

1. Decorate a mug.
Grab some oil-based sharpies and add their name, your anniversary date, or an inside joke to their fave mug (or a new one!). To make your message permanent, bake the mug in the oven at 120° for 2 hours. Then, they’ll have a one-of-a-kind piece that will always remind them of you. Awwww.

2. Set up a cheap feast.
Everyone loves a good comfort snack, so how about assembling an array of all your partner’s go-to junk foods? Maybe its McDonalds’s fries, or Oreos, anything to show you know makes them happy.

3. Re-write a song’s lyrics as an ode to your lovah.
Even if you’re no Mariah, it’s a super creative way to let someone know what they mean to you. It can also be something super adorable to laugh at together, especially if your voice isn’t getting you a record deal anytime soon.

4. Cover the room with love note-filled balloons.
Cut some paper into little slivers and write down all the things you love about your lovah. Then fill empty balloons with as many rolled-up notes as you want. Blow them up and spread ’em all over the room. At first glance, the balloons will just look like V-Day decorations, but once the balloons get popped your little love-note surprises will be there waiting.

5. Bundle up with blankets and go watch the sunset.
It might be chilly outside, but nothing is more romantic than cuddling up in front of a stellar view.

6. Build a cozy blanket fort for an all-day movie marathon.
Maybe you’ve forgotten how fun these are to make and hang out in. Set up yours in front of the TV, make some popcorn, and cuddle up to watch movies for as long as you want.

7. Cover their mirror with sweet Post-It notes.
List all the things you love about them on pretty notes. Then, if you really wanna go for it, stick them in a heart shape.

8. Turn off all lights for a candlelit night.
What’s more romantic than candles? Whether you have plans to cook a nice meal, watch a movie, or just hang out, do so with some mood lighting. They’ll make the room feel hella romantic.

9. Surprise them with breakfast in bed.
No need to spend hours making an elaborate meal. Raid your pantry and fridge to whip up something easy (scrambled eggs are always good). Bonus points for any food you can make into a heart shape. Cheesy? Yes? SO CUTE? Also yes.

10. Fill a jar with future date-night ideas.
Brainstorm a bunch of ideas, write them down, and pull one from the jar whenever you’re all like, “So…whataya wanna do tonight?.”

11. Make a “Valen-timeline.”
Highlight all of your favorite past moments together. Print out photos you love from moments you’ve shared, and jot down the details of each event on the back. Try to remember as much as you can, so you both can look back on all the good times. Hang them in order on (you know, like a timeline) them to find.

12. Make a collage.
Grab a picture frame, poster board, or a canvas, and cover it with things like photos and ticket stubs from concerts or movies you saw together.

13. Plan a scavenger hunt.
You can’t celebrate V-Day without some kind of cheesy poetry, so turn your clues into little love poems and hide them at each spot for them to find.

14. Give the gift of handmade love coupons.
In a move that Joseph Tribbiani would appreciate: Come up with a list of inexpensive things your guy/girl would love (a massage, a movie night). Make little coupons they can redeem whenever.

15. Hide little notes all around.
You know how good it feels to find a dollar in your pocket, so imagine how sweet it would be to find random love-note surprises everywhere.

16. Wake up early to tackle their to-do list.
Little acts of kindness go a long way, and you’ll have extra time to hang out and do fun things.
