Improve your relationship (with money) this Valentine's Day - Raiz Invest

Valentine’s Day is not just about expressing love for your significant other; it’s also an opportunity to rekindle your relationship with your finances! Though not a typically sexy topic, by adopting mindful spending, smart saving, and strategic investing habits, you can set yourself up for financial and romantic success!

Mindful Spending:

  • Inexpensive Date Ideas: Instead of splurging on an expensive dinner, consider budget-friendly date ideas that are just as special. Picnics in the park, home-cooked dinners without screens, or a scenic hike can be memorable and cost-effective alternatives that don’t skimp on romance!
  • DIY Valentine’s Cards: Express your feelings without breaking the bank by creating personalised DIY Valentine’s cards. Handwritten notes and thoughtful gestures often carry more sentimental value than store-bought cards. Check Pinterest or Tiktok for DIY tutorials.

Gifts that keep on giving:

  • Potted Flowers & Plants: Swap traditional cut flowers for living potted ones. Not only do potted plants last longer, but they also symbolise growth and longevity, mirroring your commitment to sustainable financial habits. Whatever you do, don’t let your love fern die!
  • Joint Savings Goals: Use Valentine’s Day as an opportunity to discuss and set joint financial goals. Whether it’s saving for a dream holiday, a first home, or an emergency fund, aligning your saving goals can strengthen your financial partnership with your Valentine.


Strategic Investing:

  • Investing in Experiences: Instead of spending money on material gifts, consider investing in experiences that you can share with your special someone. Whether it’s taking a cooking class together or planning a weekend getaway, these investments create lasting memories.
    • Pro tip: Raiz Rewards is a great way to earn cashback invested in your Raiz account when you book travel, experiences, gift cards and more with eligible partners!
  • Automate Investments: Show your money some love by setting up automated contributions to your investment portfolio. Consistent, automatic investments can help you grow your wealth over time, ensuring a more secure financial future.

By incorporating mindful spending, smart saving, and strategic investing habits, you not only strengthen your financial foundation but also create opportunities for a more secure and sustainable future with your loved one.
