What we don’t love is spending tons and tons and tons of money because our calendar says it’s a day we’d better use money to show people how much we love them.
So here’s our challenge to you, #lovelansing friends:
Spend no more than $5.
“What? You tell us how important it is to shop local all the time,” you say. Yes, we do. And it’s super important. We don’t mean go on a budgetary lockdown forever. Instead, use this as a personal challenge: What can you give the person you love that costs $5 or less, yet is priceless to them? Get creative. Really think about your loved one.
If you get stuck coming up with ideas, try some of these. Or these. The point is to focus on love and not the gift. This works for husbands, wives, partners, boyfriends, girlfriends, good friends, moms, dads, kids and grandparents.
This year, make Valentine’s Day all about love.
We love you, #lovelansing!
