2. Feel like a getaway?
Can’t afford to spend on a hotel room? Try swapping homes with your friends. Building a fire and watching a video at someone else’s house changes the atmosphere and the mood. For a real escape you can post your home on homeexchange.com and visit another city or even country for free!

3. Make a dinner and keep it in the “red.”
Start with beet salad and then move onto chicken cacciatore with a side of penne with vodka sauce. And finish with strawberries, whipped cream and red velvet cake.

4. Create a CD with love songs that you and your honey can enjoy.

5. String together all the romantic emails you have shared over time and have them bound in a book. (My hubby did that for a wedding present to me!)
6. Make your own coupons.
Let your darling cash in on a massage or breakfast in bed.
