It’s almost Valentine’s Day, and for the couples out there, that can may mean a night out on the town which often equates to lots of dollar signs. Valentine’s Day is not only a day for lovebirds, it’s also a booming day for the retail industry, with estimated nationwide spending at more than $25.9 billion. According to the National Retail Federation and Prosper Insights & Analytics, the world’s largest retail trade association, 52% of Americans plan to celebrate the day of love, spending an average of $192.80 per person.
The good news is that if you are trying to avoid breaking the bank this Valentine’s Day, there are some awesome alternatives that will help save money. At Home & Texture we value homeownership and love ideas that help homeowners turn a house into a home. So, what better way to play up the comfy, cozy vibes than to celebrate Valentine’s Day right at home. That includes your kitchen, living room or really any room you prefer. Ditch the lines and the hefty bills at those five-star restaurants and bring the party to your house. There are a lot of innovative and creative Valentine’s Day ideas for staying in that don’t include Netflix and chill (but it’s OK if that’s your preference too!)
