Valentine’s Day – a celebration of love with these affordable gift ideas

10 February 2023 | Insights Team

In South Africa, Tuesday, 14 February 2023 is Valentine’s Day, the day of love. While many believe that Valentine’s Day should be dedicated to love-struck lovers, Valentine’s Day is really a day to celebrate and share the love we have for all of our significant others, the amazing people who enrich our lives so greatly each and every day. The potential list is endless and includes our friends and friends who are family, our actual family members, children and our adored four-legged soul mates.

Showing those you love how much they mean to you need not necessarily cost an arm and a leg. After all, the best things in life are free, and love is at the top of the list! Here are 5 x utterly romantic (yet sensational) Valentine’s Day ideas to enjoy with your deeply appreciated and acknowledged others.
