How to Make Money on Valentine's Day

How to Make Money on Valentine's Day. Though everyone typically spends money on Valentine's Day, that means that there are plenty of ways to make money as well. 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.

Step 1

Sell items like roses, handmade cards, candy or jewelery. 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.

Step 2

Offer services, such as flower delivery, shuttling or dining service. Valentine's Day is one of the biggest nights out in a 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.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

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.

Step 5

Throw a 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.
