Yes that time of year has arrived again. You’ve just received your February pay cheque after struggling your way through the last weeks of January and you want to hold on to it for dear life! Valentine’s doesn’t have to be a flashy affair and here are some ideas that won’t break the bank.
We are all guilty of last minute card purchasing from the local off-licence, supermarket or that craft shop on your way home from work. This usually follows with a raising of the eyebrows at the price before reluctantly dragging yourself to the till out of necessity. A little bit of planning can help prevent this, costing a fraction of the price.
Head to your local Card Factory. They have a range of cards but I’ve picked out these which are just £0.79 each!
Gifts for under £5
Here are some thoughtful gift ideas that might get you some extra brownie points.
