Ah, young love! It makes you forget about writing essays, completing assignments and annoying professors. If you have a partner or are just looking for one, college is the best time to experience that strong feeling. However, the financial problem is unfortunately ever-present. Many students find themselves disappointed that they cannot lavish the object of their passion with expensive gifts or visits to exquisite restaurants. Indeed, now that you are cut off from your parent’s money and have to deal with both college and a part-time job to keep yourself at bay, it may be hard to spare a few dollars on a bouquet of flowers or a box of chocolates. That is not a reason to feel down. Fear not, because here are some budget variants that could make anyone fall in love with you at college.
Students are always hungry. Indeed, they spare a lot of calories for stress and often have trouble eating regularly because of the many tasks that they need to deal with. If you have no means to invite your love to a restaurant, you could always invest a few hours into a delicious homemade dish. No matter what it is, a creamy soup, some Italian pasta or puffy chocolate muffins, your partner will adore you for investing your time and resources into making them food. Shortcutting through the stomach is always the quicker way to a person’s heart.
It is not a secret that college is quite noisy. Even if your partner lives with a roommate or on their own, instead of the dorm, it may be hard for them to find a few hours without constant problems to deal with, tasks to complete, readings to accomplish and so on. A great gift that you could give your partner is the luxury of a few careless hours. Find out their schedule and help them to deal with their tasks quicker, and make sure that their phone is turned off for the evening. A nice massage or foot rub could be a great bonus.
Who does not love balloons? Surprise your better half by filling their room with colorful balloons. It will not cost you anything, but happiness and laughter are guaranteed.

If you do not have money for helium, you can electrify the balloon by rubbing it against some cloth or even your hair. This way it can stick to a wall or the ceiling for a short time, enough to surprise your partner!

Walk in the Park
Sometimes the best gift you could give is taking your partner out for a walk. Explore together the best spots in the city, and take a long walk. It will clear your mind from unnecessary stress and give you both a chance to talk longer without interruptions and get to know each other even better because of it. A walk in the park is a great activity during any season, and unlike other active pastimes, does not require special equipment or preparations. Anytime is good for it, and you will both benefit from it.
If you are far away from your love for some reasons, for example, a trip abroad or studying at another college, you can always show your love in the most simple and economical way possible, by sending a postcard with a touching message. Postcards are sold anywhere, especially in big cities, and mailing one is easy and does not require any special effort. A handwritten message will show the depth of your feeling and the fact that you miss your love and cannot wait to meet up with them again.
