Valentine’s Day on a Budget

Valentine’s Day on a Budget

We believe that giving experiences is generally better than giving stuff as presents, especially when it comes to Valentine’s Day. Not only experiences help build and strengthen the bond between you two, they are also often cheaper and more memorable than material things. If you are on a tight budget, but still want to do something romantic with your other half, you could consider doing one (or a few) of these things:

– Movie night at home. Rent a movie or 2, make your own popcorn, get boxes of candy, favourite drinks, and curl up on the couch together to watch a movie.
– Have a picnic. Picnic indoors in cold weather, or outdoors in nice weather. Set up a tablecloth with candles. Make sandwiches; buy chips and any other favourite picnic foods.
– Have a sushi/your favourite takeaway night- Grab some meat and vegetables and make a meal together. Afterward you can make dessert together or just buy one at the store.
– Game night with junk food. You choose the game but make it something you both will enjoy.
– Make a memory book with photos.
– Go bowling or mini-golfing.
– Make a cheese platter and have it with some nice wine (you can splurge on that since you are saving money on everything else).
– Buy a voucher from GrabOne, TreatMe, Living Social etc. in advance. They often have great deals on dinners and fun experiences.
– Fondue night and candles, lots of candles. Cheese or chocolate – you choose.
– Go somewhere free/cheap: the zoo, a museum, or observatory. Just relax with each other and have fun.
– Relive your first date.
– Do something active together: go for a run or do a fitness class. Improve your health and get to spend time together!
– Enjoy the sunset together.
Another good money saving tip is to celebrate Valentine’s Day on the 15th of February, that way, you should be able to find cheaper flowers and discounted chocolates and teddy bears.
