Now, most of us think that Valentine's Day is over commercialised, but it doesn't have to be like that!
I quite like celebrating either on a different day (restaurants are less busy for starters!) or simply do something a bit different altogether - it doesn't have to cost much money, just a bit of effort -
Maybe try making a homemade card, or making a nice cake or even a whole meal - something you know your special someone loves.
If all else fails, you can't go wrong by buying a unique gift from a designer maker - at least then you know it's often a one-off and not just something from the high street.
