Tweeted: Thrifty Treat Ideas for Valentines Day

I asked my lovely twitter followers for their ideas for thrifty treats we could give our loved ones for Valentines day and as always they came up trumps….

Transatlantic Blonde

Cut hearts out of maps of cities that are significant to you & OH (where you met, married, child was born etc)


Use a heart shaped cutter to make a hole in bread, fry, turn, crack egg into hole. Heart egg in toast breakfast! (in bed?)


The old classic – give things that don’t cost £ – vouchers for “6 lie ins to be used any time in next year”. I’d love that!


Cut out tiny hearts one for each day of the year, with a reason you love that person – pop them in a jar wrap with a ribbon

Smile Hunny

A small meal with wine then a good game of chess with a shot & strip for the loser every time they lose a player


I’m making Heart Shaped Jammy Dodgers for OH.


Time & attention outweighs expensive presents. Cook a meal, light a fire, offer the right words & give a big hug! #Valentines


Make finger print paint hearts on cards to give to your valentine

Penny Alexander

Make brownies, you could cut them with a heart shaped cutter when cooked 🙂

The Ana Mum Diary ?

Buy a pack of love heart sweets, (20p) and glue one to the front of a plain card. Simple and effective 😉 makes about 15cards

Musings from a mum

Love letters/poems to be found throughout the day. In work bag, lunch bag, bed etc. sprayed with perfume. #Valentines

Thank you for your tweets ladies, inspired ideas and I hope you get treated too.

    Thanks for including me! I think all the suggestions sound great and proof money can’t buy you love 🙂 (sorry couldn’t resist…) but that taking time to give the person you love care and attention is really special.
