My Love Don't Cost a Thing

We're all feeling the effects of the recession, and many of you ladies might be finding it hard to think of special ways to celebrate this Valentine's Day without breaking the bank.

Here are some creative things you can do for your man that are either totally free or super cheap:

1. Cook him dinner—wearing nothing but your sexiest lingerie and heels. Believe us when we say that it won't matter at all what the meal actually winds up tasting like!

2. Serve yourself up for dessert. Grab some of your favorite condiments (think honey and chocolate syrup), lay a towel down (you'll thank us for this pointer later) and turn yourself into a jumbo banana split sundae.

3. Role play. Ever have a naughty nurse and patient fantasy? Or maybe you’re more of a sexy maid and butler type? Whatever your fantasy may be, dressing up like different characters can add a sexy spark to any V-day rendezvous.

4. Make like a Pussycat Doll and treat your man to his very own personal lapdance. My favorite song to get down to? "Kiss," by Prince—the slinky beat and sexy lyrics set the perfect mood.

5. Run a luxurious bubble bath...for the two of you. You can get really yummy smelling bath salts and oils from most chain drugstores these days. Light candles, throw on some slow jams and relax.

6. Give him a sensual massage. Lay him down and turn him to putty in your hands with a full body rubdown. Be sure to use massage oil or lotion, or the friction created by your hands might be too much for your man to handle!

Have any other great ideas for celebrating Valentine's Day on the cheap? Let us know!

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
