When it comes to Valentine's Day -- and Christmas, and birthdays, and anniversaries, and even just day-to-day happiness -- it's all about the experience.
And one way to create an unforgettable Valentine's Day this year is by putting in a small amount of effort and money (like, $5-25) to make the experience special and unforgettable. One easy way to do this: projectors.
Because maybe you don't have time to celebrate Valentine's Week or Valentine's 4-Day Weekend. Maybe all you have time or money for is dinner, or an extra romantic cuddle session.
There is no reason this can't be incredible special and romantic -- especially if you put a little thought into it. For example:
1. LIWUYOU Ocean Night Light Projector with Music Player, $22.99
For any couple who has ever taken a romantic trip to the beach, gone on a tropical dive vacation, taken surfing lessons, or even just visited an aquarium together.
Serve up a special dinner -- perhaps your significant other's favorite meal, or perhaps a meal and drinks you shared during your special waterfront (or underwater) adventure. Turn on the projector, and tell your partner about your favorite memories from that trip, and what it meant to you.
2. Lizber Starry Night Light Rotating Moon Stars Projector, $16.99.
Surprise your partner with this inexpensive, but romantic, special touch. Whether you're eating takeout or cuddling on the couch, you can make this even more romantic by preparing a list of your Top 5 Most Amazing Moments Under The Stars With You.
3. Mosuch Colorful Twilight Romantic Sky Star Master Projector Lamp, $4.27.
Even if your budget is super tight this year, you can still find some fun and affordable romance. The Mosuch Projector Lamp clocks in at under $5. It doesn't have the best reviews, but if you only need it to work once, this is a great and affordable option.
4. McWorks Colorful Undersea World, Multiple Colors Rotating Projector Night Light, $19.99.
Technically, I guess this one is for babies. But if you and your partner have a fun connection with the underwater world, this could be a solid choice. Remember to come equipped with stories of adventures you've shared together.
5. Comkes Valentines Day Decorations Light Projector (Outdoors), $49.99
For campy, silly, and self-aware lovebirds. This projector is perfect for a picnic, cooking out in the yard, or sitting on the porch or hammock.
It's also perfect for singles who are festive -- showing a little holiday spirit never hurt anyone, and this is a pretty easy, stress-free way to light up your whole house and brighten your neighbors' days.

As an added bonus, this projector comes with 16 slides, so you're ready-to-go for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Halloween, Carnival, birthdays, spring, winter, general outdoor decorations, weddings, and more!

Need more inspiration? Take it from Serena Van Der Woodsen, who did kind of a similar thing for Dan for Christmas:
It's always amazing how far a small gesture can go -- something that could have just been bleh turns into something unforgettable, even if it's a little cheesy. Just remember: everything's always worth it.
Happy Valentine's Day!
