Valentine’s on a budget can still be Romantic

• If you have an open fire then you could always create a romantic setting and buy all of your favourite food items and have a picnic in front of it.

• Turn off the technology – no phones, no computers, no TV, just you and your partner.

• Create a play list of memorable songs, the ones you associate with the time you first met, an engagement, and so fourth.

• Both choose a poem and read it to each other, or if you are feeling creative write your own.

• Recreate your first date, whether it was ice-skating, walking or meeting at a pub.
