How to Survive Valentine’s Day on a Budget

How to Survive Valentine’s Day on a Budget

With Valentine’s Day looming, you might be wondering on the best gifts to show your appreciation for your other half. After all, what’s Valentine’s Day without a romantic gesture? 

However, the 14th February can quickly become an expensive occasion, which can create a feeling of dread as the day draws nearer. While it is a chance to spoil your partner, you might also be trying to save the pennies for one reason or another; perhaps you are a student, or you’re trying to save up for a house or holiday.

At Perfume Direct, you don’t have to break the bank to show your other half just how much you love them. We have some great options to impress your partner, even on a budget.

Fragrance gift sets 

Whether you are buying for your male or female counterpart, finding an affordable gift they will love can feel impossible. If you’re hoping for a luxury gift without the hefty price tag, our fragrance gift sets are the perfect go-to.

Gift sets offer the chance to get a little more for your money. Many of our perfume gift sets come with special additions like body lotion, shower gel or travel sprays. Other sets include miniatures of 3 to 4 different fragrances, like this Marc Jacobs Daisy set.

A fragrance gift set is a perfect opportunity to buy your other half a designer present without paying over the odds. Some of the most recognisable brands offer gift sets, like this Paco Rabanne Invictus Intense aftershave gift set.

Perfume Direct gift cards

If you are a new couple, or you’ve run out of ideas for gifts, all is not lost. For those who are unsure of the perfect present for Valentine’s Day, a Perfume Direct gift card is a great solution.

If you’re shopping for your other half but have no idea what to buy, a gift card can take out any risk if you don’t want to buy the wrong thing. Our gift cards are available in values of £10, £25, £50, £100 and £200, allowing you to keep well within your budget while still giving a great present for Valentine’s Day.

Pay later with Klarna

Valentine’s Day can creep up very quickly after the January blues, when many of you might still be paying off your Christmas debts. This can turn a romantic occasion into a stressful one; after all, you don’t want to spend beyond your means, but you also want to ensure your other half has a lovely surprise.

To help ease your shopping experience, we have partnered up with Klarna. This means you don’t have to pay for anything until 30 days after you have placed your order; perfect if payday is still a few weeks away! 

All you have to do is select Klarna as your payment method at the checkout. You will even receive a payment reminder nearer the time. 

Student and youth discount 

If you are at college, university or studying for an apprenticeship, you already know how it feels to watch the pennies. Couple this with Valentine’s Day and you have a financial nightmare on your hands. This doesn’t have to be the case. 

At Perfume Direct, we offer student discount with a helpful 8% off; we also offer discount for 18-21 year olds and apprentices! Take the edge off with cheaper perfumes and aftershaves.

With these helpful tips for Valentine’s Day on a budget, you can’t go wrong!
