5 Ways to Make Money from Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day isn’t just for lovers but for business-minded peeps as well.  Yes, you can take advantage of this overrated holiday (sorry, single thirty-year-old here) by making profit out of it.  It’s a great opportunity to earn cash on the side or if you just need a budget to buy your loved one a fancy gift.

1. Make Handmade Valentine’s Cards

If you are crafty, artsy and good with words, you can create handmade V-Day cards and sell it online.  It’s cheap and doesn’t require a big amount to get started.  You can create a unique line of humorous and sarcastic cards that will guarantee giggles from your buyers, or a line of cheesy, heartfelt cards for the hopeless romantics.

2. Bake Valentine-Themed Treats

Valentine’s Day is literally sweet by tradition so use that baking skill of yours to whip up a bunch of Valentine-themed treats – heart-shaped chocolates, cute cookies, cupcakes with pink icing and colorful sprinkles, whichever is your forte.

3. Plan and Organize Parties

Convert your party-planning skills to cash by organizing a fun-filled and memorable event for Valentine’s Day – whether it’s a proposal, a single ladies’ shindig or a school/office event.

4. Be a Photographer

For freelance professional photographers or someone who just have an eye for good photos (who owns a professional camera and has good editing skills), Valentine’s Season is a prime time for engagements, weddings, parties, etc.  So start selling your photography skills and earn cash from that talent.

5. Babysit or Pet Sit

If you don’t have a date for Valentine’s then use that time to become a sitter for parents  (of both babies and fur babies) who will be enjoying a night out on Feb. 14th.  Whether it’s for a family member, a neighbor or a co-worker, it’s a good opportunity to get extra cash and not be alone on Valentine’s Day.  You don’t want to be alone watching sad and sappy films on Valentine’s Night, right?
