We all know that Valentine’s Day is a holiday invented by Hallmark and candy companies to make money. So why don’t you stop only spending a fortune on St. Valentine’s Day and go make some money on it? Invest the extra revenue in something for your sweetheart or simply pay rent; there’s no reason to miss this opportunity. A few simple ideas are listed here.
Sell items like roses, handmade cards, candy, or jewelry. These things make perfect gifts for the holiday and are fairly easy to make in bulk. If you’re talented in the kitchen you can sell homemade truffles, chocolate-covered strawberries, or even cakes.
Offer services, such as flower delivery, shuttling, or dining service. Valentine’s Day is one of the biggest nights out of the year for many people. Others buy massages, pedicures, up-dos, and waxes for the big event so any skills in the service industry can be put to good use.
Start a blog or write a book about Valentine’s Day or even the anti-Valentine’s Day movement. These days there are as many people against Valentine’s Day as there are for it, and services like Google Ad-Sense make it easy to generate revenue.
Perform somewhere. Many of the higher-priced restaurants offer openings to provide music and entertainment on holidays and weekends or there’s always your local club, bar, or hangout. Even if you choose not to pursue a professional venue, simply performing a moving ballad on the streets may get some romantics tipping on Valentine’s Day.
Throw Valentine’s Day singles party and charge a cover fee. You’ll be surprised at how many people are dying to get out of the house and meet someone new on a night normally reserved for couples.
