Celebrating Valentine's Day Without Spending Money

We hold love in our hearts rather than our hands, and we see it only when we give it to another. Simple, heartfelt gestures are the best way to offer the gift of love.


  1. Leave a note on her pillow, a note on her dressing table mirror, a note on the breakfast table, and a note on her car's steering wheel.
  2. Put a note on the bathroom mirror promising to share an afternoon delight.
  3. Fill his car with balloons, each with an “I Love You” message inside.
  4. Find a classic love poem and write it on the bathroom mirror.
  5. Bring her breakfast in bed - with a love note on the tray.
  6. Find his car at work and leave a note on the steering wheel suggesting a romantic rendezvous. Meet him with drinks and snacks and a love note.
  7. Draw a heart on her makeup mirror.
  8. Meet him after work wearing your sexiest outfit and tempt him away to lover's lane. Carry along a bottle of sparkling water and a basket of canapés.
  9. Leave him a series of notes to follow so that you meet in a romantic place.
  10. Use a can of water-soluble, non-toxic aerosol paint to write a message of love on the grass in your yard.
  11. Call her favorite radio station and request a romantic song during the time she drives to work.
  12. Leave a trail of paper hearts, each with a loving message, from the front door to the bedroom for him to find as he comes home from work.
  13. Change the welcome message on your answering machine to an expression of love.
  14. Cook his favorite dinner and serve it by candlelight.
  15. Show up at her workplace, meet her as she takes her break, and whisk her away to a lovely park. Have a picnic lunch, complete with candle and rose.
  16. Wrap up your prettiest negligee in a fancy package, complete with a note that promises a romantic evening.
  17. Or decorate your bedroom in a theme - tropical island, old West, ancient castle - that appeals to his interests.
  18. Write her a long letter, one in which you recall the most emotional parts of your romantic history.
  19. Light candles in your bedroom and lay out a romantic picnic on your bed.
  20. Print out “I Love You” posters on your computer, put them on your garage door and on light posts around the neighborhood.
  21. Ask her to watch the sunset with you - and promise her your love will burn longer than the sun.
  22. Scatter chocolate candy all over the bed.
  23. Open the windows, put her favorite romantic song on the CD player, and invite her to dance under the stars.
