Quick Tips

Celebrate Presidents’ Day with Veterans

Presidents’ Day means more than mattress sales. The holiday is also a great day to celebrate those who have served to protect this great nation, like founding father George Washington did. Many veterans provide 21-gun salutes at ceremonies and parades, and non-naturalized soldiers often pick Presidents’ Day to take their oath of citizenship. Support your local veterans in person this Monday, or make a donation at VVA.org.

Thrifty, Belated Valentine’s Day Ideas

Still shopping for a (late) Valentine’s Day gift? There are lots of ways to save without looking cheap. If you’re buying flowers, the local supermarket often has blooms that are as good as any you can have delivered at a much cheaper price. Want to slash costs on dinner while keeping the romance alive? Stage a picnic in front of the fireplace. And if you need to buy jewelry, don’t worry about the size of the rock; set a budget and pick something beautiful.

Celebrate Valentine’s Day with Creativity

Everyone remembers making Valentine’s Day cards out of pink and red construction paper as kids, and you can keep crafting to add a little romance to your gifts and décor as an adult, Martha Stewart says. It’s easy to add cutout paper and felt hearts to windows, place settings, cards, wrapping paper, clothing and more. Whether you’re dating or already married with children, you can observe the season with a dash of creativity.

Roses Are Red (And Other Colors)

When roses are red, Reader’s Digest says, they indicate love and romance. But did you know that other colors can relay other messages? Yellow roses convey friendship, while white roses indicate purity, so they may not be the best options for Valentine’s Day. Lavender roses indicate love at first sight, though, and orange roses indicate passion and desire. The final word, however, is whichever the recipient likes best.
