A few years ago, I started doing 14 days of Valentines for Hubs, but really you can make 14 days of Valentines for anyone! Not only is it a frugal and fun way to celebrate Valentine’s Day, it’s also versatile. You can switch it up – for kids, siblings, friends, whoever – by changing the tags to fit the items you give.
The 14 days of Valentines concept is simple. Basically you give a (very) small gift everyday beginning on February 1 and ending on February 14. Each gift comes with a tag that features a fun (and cheesy) play on words.
Sometimes I leave the gift to be found in the morning, sometimes in the evening. I also switch up the places I leave it. When I did this for Hubs, I left gifts in his closet, truck, by the coffee maker, in his lunch. You get the picture.
You can pick up most items at the dollar store, or at Walmart or Target for between $1-$2. The idea is to not spend alot of money, but have alot of fun.

Tips for Making Valentine Tags
If you’re printing Valentines tags, remember that colored ink can be expensive. You can save money by buying colored cardstock at Hobby Lobby and using black ink only. You’ll be able to create a fun, colorful tags like the ones in the image below without using up all your colored ink.
No printer? That’s ok. Buy colored cardstock and use a black sharpie to create “clip art frames” and write in the puns. Or buy white card stock and use colored markers.
