If you are planning to celebrate Valentine”s Day in Boca Raton and South Florida there are many things to do and enjoy from free and cheap to super pricey! I have put together some ideas for you no matter what your budget including gift guides to help you plan something special to celebrate the 2019 season of “love!”
If Valentine’s Day includes a shout out to champagne toasts and rose all day then check out one our favorite gifts to give and get! A wine basket never disappoints! Toss in some chocolates and beautiful fruit and who needs to go out for dinner! This always goes a long with with us gals and will with your favorite Valentine too!
If you are thinking you might want to stay in and really save some money you can do something simple like what my husband and I used to do when we were much younger and newly married which is to make a double box of Kraft Dinner, split a couple of stone crab claws or one Florida lobster, watch a movie and just spend some time together. He cooks and I clean!
Seriously though the day can get expensive and just spending time with the ones you love, keeping it simple and frankly cheap is sometimes just as much fun. If you need some great yet inexpensive or even free ideas of things to do on Valentine’s Day (or any day frankly) buzz by Living on the Cheap and 14 Creative and Cheap Valentines Dates for some major inspiration!
