There are plenty of ways to woo your Valentine while appealing to a pocketbook of any size. So join us as we take a look at frugal and imaginative gift ideas for Valentine’s Day.
4. Couples Geocaching
Geocaching is the newest fad, but did you know that following a treasure map can be insanely romantic, too? In this worldwide game of hide-and-seek, a geocacher places a geocache anywhere in the world. He or she pinpoints the exact location using GPS technology and then uploads that information to an online database. Anyone with a GPS unit is welcome to try to hone in on the treasure.
You and your sweetheart can get in on the international game — or you can create your own one-on-one version for Valentine’s Day by hiding a romantic treat and sending your partner on a quest to find your love token.
