Valentine’s has become so commercial now that it’s impossible to avoid buying expensive flowers and chocolates, and going on dates where the prices have been hiked up to oblivion.

Capitalism has made V-day less about sweet, sweet loving, and more about who had the biggest bunch of roses delivered to their office.

That said, there’s no harm in spreading the love regardless of your budget.

Gregg’s showed us that with their £15 Valentine’s menu, and all the major supermarkets have got their deals for dine-in menus. You can also go out to ‘Spoons and enjoy a two-course meal for only £20.

Poundland have gone one better, though, and released a three-course menu you can enjoy for just £5.

The menu goes like this.

Starter

Big spoon or little spoon, Heinz carrot and coriander soup.

Main Course

Netflix and chilli, Prince’s chilli and Uncle Ben’s rice.

Dessert

End the night with sticky puddings, Mr Kipling sticky toffee pudding and Ambrosia custard.

Okay, so this meal isn’t going to be winning any Michelin stars. But if you’re not too flush and you want to do V-day dinner, it’s the most affordable around.

For something more al fresco, Poundland are also doing a meal deal cheaper than anywhere on the high street. for £2 you get a sandwich, crisps, chocolate bar and soft drink.

It might not be much, but splitting a sandwich in the park has it’s own sort of sweet romance.

If you’re not feeling the love for their cut-price menu, there are also some other gifts for a quid. They’ve got balloons, mugs, teddies, and a sickly sweet ‘love story chalkboard’ (equal parts cute and vom).

After all, it’s not about the money you spend but the thought you put in.
