Cheap & Frugal #Valentine #tips in #Dubai

See the original post here written January 2014

 Are you looking for something cheap and frugal to do in Dubai on Valentines?

Well you’re in luck, whether you’re married, just dating , taking a friend out instead, or doing something special for your mother ❤ (RIP mum) –  and Valentines’ day has sprung up on you I’m going to give you a few cheap ideas on how to celebrate.
– Of course, you could always say that you don’t believe in celebrating only on one day, or that you don’t like celebrating made up holidays that were created by marketers back in the day and that are backed up by capitalism. However, due to peer pressure and expectations I think that’s just not going to cut it.
If for some reason you forgot about valentines, or are haven’t budgeted to do a huge show of valentines, here are a few ideas – I warn you in advance you might find them lame.
Also, if you’re with the type of person that will judge you based on the value of your present then you either dump them or realize that you are like that too!:


Looking your best
Lame I know, but suprisingly a lot of people really just don’t make the effort. Just wear some perfume, a nice outfit and put on a winning smile. Throw out a few compliments and be considerate. It’s free, it’s thoughtful, it’s important to do everyday.
