5 Low Budget Date Ideas for Valentine’s Day

5 Low Budget Date Ideas for Valentine’s Day

It’s the new year and the holidays are over and done with, but you have realized that your bank account doesn’t love Valentine’s Day as much as you do. Your significant other has been begging you to go on date, but you have yet to get even think of a gift, better yet a DATE. I figured that a list of 5 low budget dates for this Valentine’s Day would be appropriate! Here a few that might do:

  1. Make a picnic and go to the local park overlooking the city
    Premade sandwiches, cheese tray, grapes and a bottle of wine are the perfect setup for an outdoor picnic; or indoor if the weather doesn’t allow. Go to the local park and take a blanket to snuggle up on. Go at sunset to make it even more romantic. This will both get you out of the house without spending any money, except on the food!

  2. Netflix and Chill
    If it is too chilly outside, take a warm blanket, maybe even start a fire, and start a movie on Netflix. Cuddle on up and have a movie marathon. Here are a couple you can find on Netflix: Remember Me, 50 First Dates, Hitch, Along Came Polly, and many more. I’m sure you have Titanic or The Notebook somewhere on the shelf. (Image Credit)

  3. Couple’s Fitness Class
    A lot of fitness places do first time free classes. Take advantage of the cycling or yoga studio down the street and sign up for a class. Go sweat it out together, or have something to laugh about for the rest of the week.
  4. Couple’s Party
    This would probably be much more fun for the boys that can sit back and relax! Have a Valentine’s Day party!! Girls, plan a fun party and decorate the house with everything pink and with so many hearts. Invite all your couple friends (maybe even the single ones to set up) and enjoy each other’s company while playing games like Cards Against Humanity, the new popular game, Speak Out, and maybe even a game of Truth or Dare.
  5. Go to the Local Museum
    Even though this might not be entirely free, they usually aren’t too expensive. Dress up in your nice clothes, and go to the local museum, art, science, natural history. Help each other learn about the different history throughout the museum and learn something new about each other along the way. (Image Credit)

  6. Get Outdoors
    Make the effort to get outside and enjoy each other’s company. Go hiking, go biking, or even make it a night event and go camping.

Hope these help get you out of the house for some fun time spent with your significant other. You don’t always have to spend lots of money to make a date memorable. Remember to put the technology away and really engage with each other this holiday. Cupid is watching!

About Abbie Clinton

I've always been a social person, ever since I was little. People always told my parents that I needed to get out of my shell (kidding, of course!). I've always been very OCD about everything and organizing things from the first step. Those two qualities combined began my love affair with wedding planning. I graduated from The University of Alabama where I studied hospitality management with a concentration in events. I am currently working full time as an Event Manager in San Antonio, Texas, while doing some wedding planning and wedding photography on the side. I've always been in love with love, so you can say I'm quite excited to be working for this amazing company.
