7. THE BIG DEAL
You want to make a big deal out of V-day, but it’s hard to ball big on a strict budget. You can give the illusion that you are doing a lot just by starting early. For example, you can start on Thursday or Friday and do something daily leading up to the big day. Use some of the previously mentioned ideas and just do them on different days. Trust me; this is a big deal. She will rave about you and it may go something like this: the lovely card and balloons she got on Thursday and how you made dinner on Friday and you talked about your dreams, then Saturday was her favorite because you pampered her at home and it felt like a spa and Sunday you topped it off with some special gift made by you just for her! Let’s face it—you are a big deal—especially with your thoughtful ideas.
