How to Spend a 'Sweeter' Valentine's Day on a Budget?

February 2013 will mark our 47th "monthsary!" In short, 3 years & 11 months. Our relationship is not the usual, considered unique by some. Of course, there are ups & downs, it's a roller coaster of emotion. Actually, we've met at Friendster :-) and then as they say, the rest is history. I can't believe we've lasted this long because before, I don't believe in long-lasting relationship. I'm not looking for love back then because I'm kinda egocentric ;-P . Well, I guess that's destiny.

Would you believe that only this year that we've come up with a theme song? Yup we're that weird! I chose "God Gave Me You" because I fell in love with that song the first time I heard it. Next month, will be our 4th year and this Valentine's Day should be a special one. So I want it sweeter. We've been to Boracay, Ilocos, Vigan, Iloilo, Aklan, Antique, Tagaytay, Baguio, etc. as a couple but this month we don't have funds for traveling ;-) But I want this one to memorable. how?! I've searched the world wide web for helpful tips, read on below. Who knows you might pick a tip or two.

Mister Donut Bavarian Doubles.
M- ake a special handwritten letter. I think nothing beat a personalized note for your love one. You can write love notes on post-its and hide them in places like the closet, on the mirror, bathrobe, etc.. I Love You, still the best & inexpensive way of showing your affection. Don't forget to say "I Miss You" and "Thanks" whenever you can.  A S-crapbook that has all your past photos together, is another way. It's nice to reminisce the past fun events together. T-ry Cooking! Though I don't know how to cook many dishes. I will try to cook our dinner on that special day. Wish me luck :)  E-njoy a walk in park! I'm thinking of spending a few hours at the seaside of Mall of Asia. One of my most memorable moments is when I'm with her at the MOA seaside after watching a concert near the area. Say it sweeter with  R-ed Roses plus Mister Donut Bavarian Doubles! Enjoy two delectable flavors in one regular dough nut. Double the smile! Choose from: Classic Bavarian & Choco Fudge, Coffee & Caramel, Choco & Caramel. Only P130.00 for a box of ten!

D-VD Marathon! One of our favorite past time is watching movies in SM North EDSA or in SM Valenzuela and whenever we have extra time, watching DVD is the way to go! Pick some comedy, rom-con or if you both love horror flicks, why not?!  O-ffer a Massage! Everyone wants to pampered, especially if the one massaging you is your loved one.  N-ice Vid! If you are knowledgeable in making videos, make a collage or slideshows of your photos together, and put your theme song as background. A simple 'Windows Movie Maker' can do the job!  U-pload it to Youtube. I'm sure your love one will love and share it your Facebook wall too! T-ake advantage of Mister Donut Valentine’s Gift Set! 6pcs Belgian Bites in a heart-shaped tin can plus a heart balloon for only P120, or all that plus an adorable bear for only P165!
