Shopping Mall Tips: How To Have Frugal But Festive Family Valentines’ Day

Valentines’ Day is often associated with romance and the love shared between two people. For those who are married or are still living together as a family though, it’s reserved for the parents. This doesn’t always have to be the case however. You can always consider Valentines’ Day, especially if you have your own family, to be a holiday of familial love and not only of romance.

Of course, you don’t have to spend wads of cash to make it feel special. Just like with any holiday that involves gift-giving or tribute, what matters is the thoughtfulness and concern you have for members of your family. That being said, here are a few things you can do to have a frugal but festive Family Valentines’ Day in your shopping mall.

Go Shopping

This might seem counterproductive, but at the end of the day, it’s all about the place where you shop. If you go to most typical malls, you can get tempted to buy gifts and items at its regular price. If you choose to shop in Paseo Outlets however, you  can be sure that there’s always a sale going on, every day of the week.

Located in Greenfield City, Paseo Outlets is one of the most popular retail destinations in the area. It manages to provide a genuine experience of value shopping to customers. With roughly a hundred premium international brands from clothing, shoes, bags, furniture and luggage, it’s easily one of the biggest and most accessible outlet malls in the Philippines.

With sales and promos promising discounts that range from 20% to 80%, you’ll not only be able to show members of your family how much you love them through gifts, you also save a lot of cash.

Explore The Mall

The malls are a great place to hang out with your friends and colleagues. The same can be said when you’re with family. You don’t have to go shopping for new dresses, clothes, toys or any of the like when going out with your family on Valentines’ day. What matters is that you’re together window shopping or just genuinely enjoying walking around the mall.

Of course, given the pandemic, you have to make sure that you’re safe and are following health safety and protocols. You need to make sure that you and your family are vaccinated and wear the appropriate gear (face masks, etc). You also need to bring alcohol spray, sanitizer gels and wipes so you’re sure your hands are clean when you hold each others’ hand or go back home.

It helps if your mall follows health and safety directives when it comes to foot traffic and the presence of people. Paseo Outlets has wide open spaces full of greenery and has most of its restaurants have an al fresco setup on their locations. Paseo Outlets does this and strictly enforces the wearing of face masks, temperature checks prior to entering an establishment and the like. With a mall like this, you don’t have to worry about catching anything that might potentially harm your family.

Have A Scrumptious Dinner

If you’re celebrating Valentines’ Day in a shopping mall, you could always skip on shopping and go straight to just having a nice dinner. Whether you’re just with your partner or you’re bringing your kids to the mall, it’s almost always a given that you have to eat out. 

Dinners are great for celebrating Valentines’ Day for a diverse number of reasons. For one, it might be how you and your partner got to know each other. Secondly, eating and dining is a social activity that prompts people to converse with each other. This is good if you want to catch up with your kids, your partner or your parents.

When it comes to where you could eat, you could just go ahead and ask your kids or partner about their preference. Paseo Outlets has restaurants that can help you sate your diverse appetite. If you’re into fast food, there’s Jollibee and Burger King. If you’d like to have Japanese cuisine, you can eat at Umenoya. If you’re hankering for some Korean food and Samgyupsal, you can go to Samgyupsalamat. And if you’d like to have some traditional Filipino Food, you can visit the Kanin Club or Razon’s.

Ask Your Kids

If you’re not quite sure what to do in the shopping mall, you can straight up ask your kids what they’d like to do. At the end of the day, they’re the fruits of you and your partner’s commitment to each other. So, really, asking your kids what they’d like to do to celebrate Valentines’ Day is a valid expression of love.

Depending on how old your kids are, they might ask to be taken to toy stores or go into the arcade. As parents, whether you listen to their requests is up to you, but if you feel like what they’re asking for is unreasonable, you can give them options. And with Paseo Outlets’ diverse offerings, that’ll be easy to do.

Apart from Paseo Outlets’ wide open spaces for your kids to play in, there’s also a lot of restaurants they can eat food from. You can also ask them to help you choose which item to buy if you go shopping – and with a sale going on every day, it won’t ravage your wallet as much as a regular shopping mall would.
