Valentine's Day Ideas and Recipes

When you say 'Valentine's Day', you might as well say 'Chocolate'. It is estimated, that in the U.S.alone, $1.7 billion is spent on candy on this particular day. Valentine’s Day is the third biggest holiday. With its heart-shaped boxes, it overpowers Easter and Christmas in terms of market share.

Not surprisingly, chocolate is a big winner around the world, with searches spiking in January and February for terms such as “chocolate,” “chocolate covered strawberries,” “chocolate brownies” and “chocolate cake.” Switzerland, Germany, Ireland, the UK and Norway are leading in consuming the most chocolate per capita, according to 2015 candy industry statistics.

With prices at historic highs, Valentine’s Day is likely to cost you extra this year, so here are 14 tips to spend Valentine's day without breaking the bank.
