Valentine’s Day is next week. Having the perfect night out doesn’t mean you need to break the budget. Here are eight ideas for an inexpensive Valentine’s Day date.
- Cook a romantic dinner at home instead of eating at an overpriced restaurant. Set the ambiance with some scented candles and music, and save a bundle!
- Make your own gift. Instead of buying a pricey piece of jewelry, frame a nice picture of the two of you or write a meaningful card. The more thought you put into a gift, the more special it is.
- If you’re going out to eat, make sure to check Groupon, LivingSocial and RetailMeNot for deals on restaurants near you before making reservations.
- Skip the wine bottle at the restaurant and pop the cork at home instead. It’s a great way to save on your restaurant bill.
- Explore the great outdoors! It may be cold out, but you can still have fun just enjoying the fresh air. Bundle up and take a refreshing walk under the stars. Or, if it’s snowy out, build a snowman! Then, go home and warm up in front of the fireplace with steaming mugs of hot chocolate.
- Get yourself a great work out and have a fun date by going ice skating!
- Get cultured on a budget by taking advantage of a local museum’s free or discounted rates at specific times or nights.
- Have a good laugh at the neighborhood comedy club. Entrance tickets can be as cheap as $5 apiece. There’s nothing better than sharing laughter with your significant other.
You don’t need to spend a fortune to make your Valentine's Day special. All it takes is a thoughtful gesture to do something nice for the one you love.
