    Haha I love this! Galentine's day is my fav, and this is the first year in 5 years I won't be spending it with my girls! I love the volunteering idea, I think I'm going to run it past my fiance! xoxo

    These are such incredible ideas! Love the idea of cooking together. I think me and my friends are going to stay in, bake some brownies, drink some wine, and watch our favorite chick flicks on Netflix. I love hearing about blogger besties coming together too, our MBN girls are fabulous! xx Merisa | Monogrammed Magnolias

    A gift budget is such a good idea. It can be so awkward when one person spends way more or way less!

    I needed this post because I have no idea what to do for Valentine's Day! Normally, my boyfriend and I just go to dinner, but all the places around here we've been to at least 10 times. I think cooking dinner together or going to do something fun (like a trampoline park) would be a great idea!X,cristinaoncampus.blogspot.com

    Groupons are totally a great way to save on spending! I'll be going on a trip with my boyfriend this year for Valentine's Day — I think experiences are definitely more meaningful!Kayla || Keynotes from Kay

    Groupon are awesome Valentine's (or Galentine's) Day gifts. I also love the idea of hosting a chocolate and wine tasting party. All the Best, Allison | http://www.LiveLifeWellBlog.com

    These are all awesome ideas! Experience gifts are my absolute favorite-I hadn't thought about this, but my hubby and I might hit up this spot in our small town that has tons of those bouncy houses (you pay like $10 for unlimited fun!) We took my niece and nephew before for the awesome slide, etc. and had a blast-so it could be really fun to act like kids ourselves :)xoxo, SSThe Southern Stylista

    This is a great list! Valentine's Day doesn't have to be the expensive ordeal that people make it up to be. I love grabbing Groupons for special events, and Valentine's Day is no different. I also like the idea of cooking together. That's super romantic (and affordable)!xoxo | Sockwun | ExtraExtravagant.com

    I'm actually going to be away this Valentine's Day, but typically we enjoy a nice dinner in the house with a movie. Going to a trampoline park sounds like a really fun time, though! I'll have to keep that in mind!

    My man and I aren't huge v-day peeps, so we never go all out. He's gifting me a ticket to a blogger conference later next month and we're going to our favorite restaurant, nothing over the top!I totally LOVE Groupn! I've used so many of their different deals, wether it be the local ones or the actual goods. It's a cheap way around what are usually expensive products most times. The only bad thing about the products is they take FOREVER to ship!

    Love the wine and chocolate party idea! I hosted a Valentine Making Party for my girlfriends 2 years ago, and am doing another one this year! On actual Valentine's Day, Bryce and I always have a romantic dinner in!

    I love the idea of volunteering on Valentine's Day! I actually work this year on Valentine's Day so my boyfriend and I will be celebrating a day early and maybe just making dinner at home on the actual day. Love the idea of chocolate and wine though!

    I love these ideas so much! I really want to get some single friends together and just have a fun time this year. I love celebrating Valentine's Day, even when I'm single. I think celebrating love, romantic and otherwise, is such a beautiful thing. Can't wait to run some of these ideas past my friends!
