How to have a great Valentine’s day without breaking the bank!

Valentine’s day for some is just another day and no different to the rest. However for those of us who do celebrate V’day it can become more and more difficult to keep it up every year. Especially if you are a parent! It is hard enough finding and even having to pay for a babysitter without all of the other costs of doing something on valentine’s day, and we haven’t even thought about the cost of presents yet! On top of the costs for a day full of romance, it can be tricky to come up with new things to do and buy for your other half after so many years of being together. So I have compiled a list of useful tips and the latest deals to help you out this V’day!

Here are a some useful tips on things that will help:

  • Check sites such as Groupon, Wowcher and Living social for local deals on  overnight stays, meals out, spa days etc.

  • Browse the aisles of stores such as boots, tesco and other stores that have had sales on recently as all final clearance stock is heavily reduced. For example in boots there are gift sets reduced from over £30 to around £2!

  • Shop in stores such as B&M and Home bargains, which are great discount stores with lots of gift sets.

  • Poundland may be cheap but it is ideal for padding out a present with little extras such as chocolates and cosmetics (branded make up is sold in poundland!).

  • Use tesco clubcard vouchers towards a £10 meal deal with wine for a romantic meal in!

  • Celebrate Valentine’s day on a different day! This will mean that valentine’s day gifts will be reduced after the 14th and you can grab some bargains in the clearance. Plus some hotels package deals will be cheaper on a different date.

  • If you are going to travel somewhere by train, make sure to buy a two together railcardwhich will give you 1/3 off tickets for 2 people. The railcard is £30 for the year and can save you so much money. Or even better, if you have £15 worth of clubcard  vouchers you can use them to buy a two together rail card at only £15 online at tesco meaning you can get it completely free!!

  • Check 02 priority moments for any deals on restaurants.

  • Before going to a restaurant, have a check on their website to see if they offer a members card or club card that is free to sign up for. For example Jamie’s Italian has a gold club card which entitles members to various discounts, free tasters every time you visit, freebies on your birthday and so on. Places like Gusto offer big discounts on total bill with their member cards.
