What's red, full of love,
& less than a week away?
Yep, you guessed it!
And thankfully ThriftyGrl
is here to save the day!

Stumped on what to get your loved one for Valentine's Day?  Let ThriftyGrl help!  From insanely cheap to absolutely free, we'll help you stick to your budget while still keeping it romantic and sweet!  Now do be sure to keep checking back throughout the week, as we'll be updating this list as more deals, ideas, and offers come our way!

It's up to you if you send or deliver, but just remember that giving them yourself is always wayyyy cheaper!  And the grocery stores sell flowers way cheaper than online stores or even local flower shops (as much as I love to support local).  Be sure to watch the papers for the best deals - roses are usually pretty cheap at area stores such as Kroger and Walmart.

Godiva:  Become a member of their rewards program and pick out a piece of their delectable chocolate for FREE!  There's one that looks like a clam shell with a chocolate pearl in the middle (cute yet stands up on it's own).  Their truffles are mouth-watering and their chocolate bars are to die for.  Pick up just your freebie or browse in-store specials (which I'm more than sure they'll be having due to the time of year it is!)
Edible Arrangements: Get chocolate dipped strawberries (yummm!!) starting at just $25! Plus Get $5 off with the coupon code "INET0210" on orders placed by 2/10.
Make your own:

Victoria's Secret:  Become a Pink Nation Member and log into your account to get her a FREE lace panty and mini purse with any Pink purchase!

Miche:  New month, new shells!  Guys, if your girl has a Miche, chances are she'll LOVE a new shell as a gift!!

1928 Jewelry:  Vintage jewelry with a modern twist!  Get her a beautiful piece for 25% off!  Simply use code 25LOVE at checkout and be sure to order by February 9th!

Speaking of jewelry, now is a great time to remind you all of that romantic, "I love you to the moon and back" necklace from Charitable Creations Jewelry!

Kissable Curves:  Spice things up with some lingerie!

Entertainment Book:  Give your sweetie the gift of savings!  Get $14 off plus FREE shipping! For the medical person in your life: A Littmann® Limited Edition Breast Cancer Awareness stethoscope for $75 ($5 is donated to breast cancer research and awareness).

Get your sweetie the gift of radiant skin! Check out the phenomenal February deals going on at Elings!

More ideas... tickets to his/her favorite sporting event, an upcoming concert they are dying to see, or how about an experience the two of you could have together (sky diving, hot air balloon ride, golf lessons, etc.) Never underestimate the power of I.O.U. coupons - you may think they are silly, but redeeming them can be tons of fun for the recipient! : ) There are so many other things (especially with the group buying sites - what a way to save money!) Vouchers for a manicure, massage, or even to his/her favorite hairdresser. I think sometimes it's just about the little things for most of us; just spending time with the one you love, knowing how they feel about you and that they love you to the moon and back : )

Mimi's:  Three course dinner for 2 is just $25.99!

Bob Evans:  Dinner for 2 (including an entree for each of you and a dessert to share) for just $19.99!

Outback Steakhouse:  Huge dinner for 2 (including:  Bloomin’ Onion to share, two 9oz Outback Special Sirloins, choice of Freshly Made Side & Signature Salad per person, and Classic Cheesecake to share); prices vary by area.  Check with your local restaurant before heading out.

Red Lobster: Share a seafood dinner for 2 for just $29.99!

Misc. Ideas a bit off the beaten path...
"Steal" his/her car.  Clean it out, get it washed, fill it up.  Cheap gift, but seriously, this would make me ecstatic!

Gift cards to his/her favorite place.  It's such a treat to have "rainy day money" to a place you love to shop!

Loved one got a lingering errand on his/her to-do list that is simply overwhelming them?  Give them a hand and do it for them.  It'll be way more appreciated than you know.

Try out this cute new heart shaped Post-It note dispenser and literally cover the walls with quotes, notes, and all things that you love about your special someone.

Looking to get away?  Myrtle Beach has a TON of great discount, deals and packages!

You could just do what ThriftyGuy and I do... play it low key and spend the night at home, alone, together.  If you need dinner ideas, be sure to check out our Thrifty Meal Ideas
