Money Saver: The day of love on the cheap

Make your sweetie feel special on Valentine's Day with gift ideas and savings!

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — It's almost Valentine's Day and we don't want that lovin' feeling to break the bank!

For flowers, you can avoid a high-cost arrangement by creating one yourself. Trader Joe's almost always has a great selection at a fraction of the cost. Buy a cute vase, use a glass or a mason jar and start creating your own arrangement.

If jewelry is on your list, Belk is offering a pair of diamond stud earrings worth $125 for just $30 if you make a $50 purchase. So, stock up on something you need like skincare or a makeup item and then those diamond earrings are at a huge discount and will make your sweetie very happy. 

Now for the chocolate lover. Right now you can get up to 40% off select Valentine's Day items at Godiva. If you would rather shop local, Coffee and Chocolate downtown and Bradleys both have great options for reasonable prices. 

For the practical person on your list, mattresses go on discount around Valentine's Day. Who knew?  

For the whole month, Serta is offering up to $1000 off a mattress. Beautyrest is also offering up to $900 off a mattress for the month of February. 

If a date night is on the horizon, restaurants are booking up on the 14th. So, get on that reservation! Several spots in downtown Knoxville are offering special menus and coursed dinners.
