In case you haven’t already heard, Valentine’s Day is only one week away and just because you’re in college—and most likely on a very limited budget—doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it. Being in college means being creative with your money and your free time. It doesn’t mean you have to pretend you can afford an expensive dinner or gift. Although Valentine’s Day can be stressful and sometimes even nerve-wracking, it’s easy to lose sight of the true meaning of the day; spending time with and appreciating the important people in your life. Don’t stress! The holiday’s true purpose is to remind yourself how lucky you are to have these special people in your life—don’t forget that.
Your book can help you remember each Valentine’s Day throughout college by writing down what you did, who you were with and where you spent it whether it was in the dining hall or the nicest restaurant downtown. If you received flowers from a special someone, you could even use your book to press them dry and keep them forever.
What thoughtful, creative ideas do you have for making this Valentine’s Day special in college? Who will you be spending it with? We’d love to hear what you’re planning. Feel free to tell us here or send some Valentine’s Day pictures to our Facebook or Twitter pages.
