I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one low on cash considering it's "tax season". so i've found a couple of ways for us all to relieve our patience at over-crowded restaurants, and silly gifts that will either end up in the trash or the "goodwill donation" bins.

**Spa night @ Home

Sometimes a nice relaxing evening can do wonders on a relationship! Grab some simple and cheap tealight candles. Draw a hot bath or shower sprinkle some inexpensive scented bath salts (lavender smells great on both guys and gals and has very relaxing traits as aromatherapy). Then grab any lotion u have at home and maybe even treat them to a nice massage! *** "happy endings" optional, but suggested! j/k,.... maybe

** "Rocker" Valentine

here is something I love for myself and all the true rock listeners. Buy some cheap guitar picks and with some sharp scissors cut the picks into heart shapes then file the edges down. (optional: personal them like sweetheart candies with colored sharpies.) Place picks back in bag with cute ribbon and love note.<) <3

** Homemade chocolate-covered strawberries

 

Everyone knows strawberries and chocolate go with Valentines day so lets heed the sensual treat! real cheap and easy!

1- carton of strawberries (est. $1.75)
1- bag of chocolate chips (est. $3.00)
1- unsalted bar of butter (est. $1.50 box of 4 bars)

Melt the butter in a small pan in a double-boiler method. Once butter has melted dump entire bag of chocolates, stir till melted. (add more melted butter to adjust the consistency. Dip strawberry one by one and set on a tray of wax paper and place in refrigerator for a couple of hours.

Also, a personal touch for around $8-11 at Walmart or Sam's grab a bottle of any brand "Moscato D'asi" its a great bubbly, sweet wine that deliciously compliments the strawberries.
