Happy Valentine’s Day! Here are some Cappex words of wisdom on how to woo your Valentine on a serious student budget.
3 Valentine Ideas for College or High School Students on a Budget:
1. Snail Mail – Not even college admissions use the ole’ U.S. Postal Service anymore. Everything is digital, even college acceptance letters! But, receiving a sweet letter in the mail that is not a bill is definitely a treat. So make your own card, buy a stamp, write your heart out to your Valentine, and you’ll only be out 44 cents!
2. Cook a Dinner at Home – You don’t have to go out to enjoy a decadent Valentine’s dinner with your Valentine. If you’re a college or high school student on a budget, you don’t need to impress your Valentine with a fancy French dinner, just cook up something at home! Not only will you save moolah, but you will impress your Valentine with your new found culinary skills. *Hint* Easy recipes are as simple to find on the Internet as scholarships are using Cappex.com!
3. Picture You Two Together - If you want to present your Valentine with a nicely wrapped gift but still stay on your college or high school student budget, a picture frame is the way to go. You can find affordable picture frames at tons of places. Plus, the most personal part of the gift is the picture you place inside. It’s an affordable gift that has meaning to it, and it’s definitely better than your other affordable and personlized option: the illustrious mix-tape.
So happy Valentine’s Day! And if none of the above options work for you, why not find some scholarships to save your Valentine money on college? That’s probably the best Valentine they’ll ever get!
