How to treat your Valentine on a budget of $10

Article by Homes to Love

For a thoughtful Valentine’s Day gesture on a budget, we suggest a picnic basket filled with some simple favourites, and prepared with love


You will need

  • A basket
  • A tea towel or piece of fabric
  • A flower – any stem will do
  • Milk
  • Homemade cookies. Try ones of these recipes for Butter Choc Chip cookies, White and Dark Choc Chip cookies or Toll House cookies.
  • Cherries or any other summer fruit



It’s all in the details

Rather than just piling everything into the basket, think about little details to elevate these simple ingredients.

  • Tie the cookies with cooking paper and twine.
  • Decant the milk into a nice vessel.
  • Add a couple of patterned straws.
  • Pop a few napkins into the basket.
