100 Ways To Show Your Love For Free

I hate Valentine’s Day. It’s not because I’m not a romantic. I am (but don’t tell anyone). I hate it because it’s a holiday that makes a lot of people feel badly about themselves because of what they may not have on a particular day of the year. It’s worse than trying to keep up with the Joneses with money. The general theme of the holiday is you either have the love of your life on February 14, or you are a loser.

Of course, it doesn’t stop there. You also need to be willing to pay out a hefty sum of money to show this love you have for your significant other, or you really don’t love that person. Like so many other holidays, Valentine’

  1. Very nice. I will be happy to share your tips. I too avoid the Hallmark days but have witnessed the let down expression on the faces of others when they have been disappointed.

  2. Great list. What do I do the day after Valentines? ;-)

    Good relationship advice for Valentine’s Day and everyday. I would much rather my partner do these things then buy me some cheesy gift once a year and call it showing me their love.

    Okay, but you do risk letting down someone who loves the idea of Valentine’s Day. You could buy a ‘romantic’ blank card and write in it, prepare a romantic meal or packed lunch – it doesn’t have to be expensive – a glass/vase with one flower and a few leaves – two pretty thrifted wine glasses – get the drift?

    It doesn’t have to be expensive, it can be cheap. If it fills your romantic partners romantic expectations why not? There are times when spending a little means a lot.

    Ten years ago (almost) my hubby and I got married on Valentine’s Day. I had found a card before the wedding that I have given him every year since. This year I slurged on a new card and cards that I sent to my boys (and got extra bucks from CVS in the process). I don’t send Christmas cards, but I know how much my unmarried son loves to get ‘real’ mail and so several years ago started that little thing just to make his day. My other son and his wife just got married last summer so this is their first Valentine’s as man and wife. I realize it isn’t ‘free’ but it is that little way I try to let them know that I love them, even though we tell each other. I do believe that having a good relationship and being treated kindly and lovingly is better than any bouquet of flowers or box of chocolates. The important thing is to let your loved ones know how much you love them and that doesn’t cost much at all.
