valentines flowers for men - 5 Frugal Ways to Spend Valentine’s Day

valentines  flowers for men leaves a lot to the imagination.  In fact, frugal guys and gals find all sorts of ways to celebrate February 14th.  You don’t have to rely on overpriced chocolates and flower arrangements to make your sweetheart happy.  With a little imagination and even less money, you can make it a day to remember without all the clich├ęs.   Here’s how you can make the most out of the upcoming holiday:

1)    Plan a scavenger hunt around town. Leave clues sealed in envelopes at different romantic locations.  Make the final destination somewhere the two of you really wanted to go to.  This can be an art gallery, a museum, a concert, play or movie.  Daily deal sites and group coupon sites are great for this purpose.  Visit Groupon or Living Social periodically to see what they offer. Heck, just today before I posted this my daily local groupon was for 50% off flowers. Can’t beat that.




2)    Create a bunch of love notes and place them into helium filled balloons. Help your partner pop the balloons so they can read the messages that are enclosed inside.  If time permits, fill an entire room full of these.  Make it hard for your man or woman to get through the door.

3)    Spread out a picnic blanket and have lunch in your living room. Prepare and eat some of your favorite foods.  Take off your shoes and relax for a while.  Listen to some great music.  Read a book or play a board game.

4)    Recreate your first date together. Go to the same location.  Order the same items from the menu. Get your picture taken in a photo booth.  Take a walk on the beach. Reminisce on the past and look forward to the future together as a couple.

5)    Rent a movie from Redbox and call it a night. Pick up a new release from Redbox and stay in for the evening. (There is a large selection of titles to choose from and you can even reserve one online and pick it up later. Serve movie theater style concessions and curl up together on the couch.)  A good romantic comedy is the perfect end to another great valentines  flowers for men. Even if you don’t have a Redbox near you or if you don’t want to leave the house at all just pull up your cable or satellite on demand listings. A movie might cost a few dollars more, but it will still be cheaper than even a single ticket at the theater.

You don’t have to jump on a jet and fly to Paris to enjoy a romantic evening with your loved one.  With a little bit of determination, you can avoid the high costs associated with Valentine’s Day and make it as memorable as ever.

valentines flowers for men - Games to look out for: Q1 2012

valentines  flowers for men
It’s 2012 already, the holiday season has passed and now it’s time to look forward to a fantastic new year of gaming. If all goes to plan we should be seeing the release of at least two new consoles this year: the Western launch of the PlayStation Vita is right around the corner on February 22 and the Wii U is scheduled for some time in the second half of the year.

While we should be seeing these consoles come to the market with a slew of new games, there are still a huge amount of games coming out for the current generation of consoles. Below you can check out some of our highly anticipated games for the first quarter of 2012.

For those of you who love the Final Fantasy series you’re probably waiting for the next console iteration. Final Fantasy XIII-2 is a direct sequel to 2009’s Final Fantasy XIII and continues the story 3 years after the events of the previous game and features a similar but supposedly improved combat system.

After the Japanese release late last month it has already scored good reviews from Japanese critics, so for Final Fantasy fans you should watch out for when it drops on January 31 on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

I’m personally not much of a fan of the fighting genre, but I’ve heard that the Soul series is one of the better ones. Anyway, Soucalibur V is the next installment in the series and takes place 17 years after the events of Soulcalibur IV. It features a bunch of returning and new characters, including a guest appearance of Ezio Auditore from the Assassin’s Creed series.

If you like fighting games then Soulcalibur V will be out on January 31 in North America and February 3 in Europe; it will be available for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.


Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is an original IP from 38 Studios and Big Huge Games which features Ken Rolston on the development team, best known for his work on The Elder Scrolls series. As you might have guessed Kingdoms of Amalur will be a single-player role-playing game. Apparently there will be four playable characters, three ability trees and five distinct regions in the game, along with a combat system that requires both the timing of buttons and strategy. The style is said to be similar to both God of War and Oblivion.

From what is known about the game it sounds like a pretty average RPG, but with a solid development team and intriguing promotion (how will it be like GoW and Oblivion?) it could be a game to look out for after the reviews come in. It comes out for the PS3, Xbox 360 and Windows PCs on February 7 (NA) / February 10 (EU).


Despite most of the Nintendo 3DS’ game line-up catering for the younger audiences, Capcom is pushing ahead with a mature Resident Evil game for the handheld console. Resident Evil: Revelations is set between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5 and follows the story of BSAA co-founders Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield shortly after the BSAA was founded. The game will be the usual survival-horror style, with an emphasis on exploration and puzzle solving; you will also have the option to switch between first-person and third-person viewpoints while aiming a weapon.

Resident Evil: Revelations was first revealed at E3 2010 and since then it looked like it was going to be one of the better titles for Nintendo’s new portable console. If you are a more mature gamer (it’s rated M by the ESRB) who bought a 3DS, this looks like a good buy when it drops on February 7 in North America; if you’re in Europe you can pick it up earlier on January 27.



Syndicate is a reboot of the Syndicate tactical shooter series that fizzled away in the late 90s, however this time it’s back as a first-person shooter. It’s set in a futuristic world where the world is divided into regions by “syndicate” mega-corporations, with each syndicate battling for market dominance. You are EuroCorp’s prototype agent embedded with a DART 6 bio-chip who must go on a bio-engineered and brutal adventure. Using said chip you can do a variety of cool things such as slowing down time and hacking into your foes.

The game’s description reminds me of Deus Ex: Human Revolution which I recently completed, but unfortunately for me I won’t be able to play it as it was refused classification (and effectively banned) here in Australia. If you live elsewhere Syndicate looks like an interesting game to try out in when it drops on February 21 (NA) / 24 (EU) for the PS3, Xbox 360 and Windows PCs.
