It is said 'money can't buy love'. Truly, it can't but in the times of recession don't spoil the Valentine spirit by worrying about burning a hole in your pocket for buying expensive gifts and other paraphernalia to please your beloved. Let recession pound the world economy, it can't play spoilsport with your love.
Nothing can bring a bigger smile to her face than a bunch of red roses. Make the bunch big, as big as you can to express your love. For that don't think of bargaining with the roadside vendor. For a day get up early morning and drive down to CP's famous wholesale flower market. Buy as many roses or flowers as you want at very reasonable prices. She will appreciate you for making her feel special while you may chuckle for being so smart.
A card bought from the store can only be 'bettered' by the one that you make yourself. It won't have those clichéd expressions and you will be able to say what you always wanted to tell her. This card will cost you zilch and it return it may get you so much more.
Two ways you can get your beloved melt : one is in your arms with a warm bear hug and the other is with chocolates. Gift her a box of heart-shaped rich chocolates or a box of her favourite chocolates. The idea of heart-shaped chocolates may be as old as grandfather's clock but the gesture is still so sweet and how much will it cost really?
If song is the food for love, play it, wrote playwright William Shakespeare. Nothing can match the beauty of a love song that you can sing for your beloved. Else, you can call up different radio stations and keep dedicating songs throughout the day. The idea is unique and it really won't cost anything.
