I’m hearing a lot of singletons complain about all the suffocating pressure to be part of a couple and receive flowers today. You know, guys: I hear ya. To be perfectly honest, Valentine’s Day should be about love. You can love anyone. The most important person you should love is yourself. So if you’re not dating/married to someone who’ll spoil you rotten today, spoil yourself. Go out for a feast with your friends. Do something crafty with your kids. Take a bubble bath and read a book!
It’s still nice to feel a little spoiled though. Which is why it’s important to coupon your way through Valentine’s Day so you get a little extra something for free. It’s not too late to plan a fun night for less. Make sure you follow me in the SnipSnap app and check out my Valentine’s Day coupon bundle to see all the ways you can score free food, clothes, and fun tonight!

Sometimes, I hear adults complain about Valentine’s Day and all the pressure they feel to either 1) quickly find a significant other or 2) pass some Hallmark-issued standardized test to impress with a super-expensive gift. This makes me sad, because Valentine’s Day is fun and you don’t need a lot of money to celebrate. Remember when you were a kid and you got the biggest kick out of platonic candy hearts? No one had to buy you a diamond ring to make you feel special. If you want/need to do Valentine’s Day on a budget this year, remember: you’ll score way more points for being thoughtful than you will for spending hundreds of dollars. As Valentine’s Day approaches, I’m dishing out slightly unconventional gift ideas paired with popular coupons, so you’ll make an impression without breaking the bank.
What’s even more romantic than precious gems? Books. You heard me. Think you know your s.o.? You can’t know for sure until you’ve successfully mapped out his or her taste in literature. If you’re interested in/dating/married to someone who’s a little bit on the nerdy side, books are definitely the way to go. Giving somebody a great read is perfect for any stage in a relationship and, with the right SnipSnap coupons, you can save a lot of money on books, romantic gifts, and even confections.
Check out this coupon for $10 off your $30 Godiva chocolate purchase at Barnes & Noble and this coupon for a free $10 gift card with the purchase of $75 or more in gift cards. You could use the gift cards yourself to do your own shopping, give them as gifts, or a do combination of both.
Want more Barnes & Noble coupons? You have to be a Barnes & Noble Member to access all of the best deals ($50 in new member coupons, exclusive email offers, and free express shipping). Memberships are usually $25 a year, but, of course, there has to be a way to coupon one for cheaper, right?
Check out this offer for $5 off a $50 purchase for non members. The best part about this coupon is you can use it to buy just books or books and a membership.
With a little thoughtfulness and the right coupons, you can easily give the gift of great taste: books + chocolate. Really, nothing’s better.
