Valentine’s Day is the one day a year that is specifically branded for romantic couples. Other than anniversaries; it is one of the only times to have a scheduled celebration of your love for one another.
Valentine’s Day tends to give everyone thoughts of extravagant dates, expensive food, and jewelry – can you hear the cash register already? Often we forget the most important part is just spending time with your partner and enjoying your love for one another.
#1 COOK TOGETHER FOR A BUDGET FRIENDLY VALENTINE’S DATE NIGHT A cheap and classic way to spend Valentine’s Day with your partner is by cooking a meal together. You can choose a family recipe, one you found online, or even one you saw on a cooking show.
#2 ROMANCE MOVIE NIGHT Movie nights are a staple when it comes to dates and may be a regular part of you and your partner’s routine, but you can make it special this Valentine’s Day by choosing a few romantic or romantic comedy movies or shows that you know she will enjoy.
#3 ART AND WINE You don’t have to be an artist or spend a large amount of money on the wine for this budget date on Valentine’s Day. You can use sketch paper or find a few cheap canvases at your local hobby store, along with some paint, acrylic, or watercolor, and you can also find brushes for fairly cheap if you don’t have any lying around.
#6 BUDGET FRIENDLY VALENTINE’S DATE IDEA: GAME NIGHT If you and your partner enjoy playing games or even hosting game nights, you can take this Valentine’s opportunity to have some time to pick games you want to play and enjoy them together.
#7 LEARN TO DANCE TOGETHER While you may not be the most graceful, and since this is a budget-friendly article, I will not be suggesting you hire a dance instructor, but you can still teach yourself to dance.
