Valentine’s Day is tomorrow! Are you still looking for something to do with your significant other? Maybe you’re on a budget and you need some ideas that are not going to cost you to much. I’m always hunting for deals on a budget. I love to save money, so being able to do something on Valentine’s Day with my husband has to be something that won’t cost us to much. I have a list of some great ideas that you can do with your partner so that you’re not spending to much, but still having fun.
- Stay at home and watch a movie. Have some popcorn and pizza with it. You don’t have to go out and watch a movie at the theater and spend a ton of money. You can just stay home and watch a movie on t.v. or rent one from a place like Redbox for a great price. You can even head to your local library and find some great movies there and not have to spend anything. Grab some pizza and/or popcorn and watch a movie at home.
- Dine in at home. You can always have a candle lite dinner at home. You can cook up something great at home that won’t cost you as much as it would if you went out to eat. If you’re not that good at cooking yourself, you can always buy something like some wine, cheese, chocolates, bread or fruit. It’s a simple yet fun dining at home experience!
- Stargaze. Make sure to put on some warm clothes before you head out. You can set out a blanket if you don’t have a porch/deck to sit on. Just sit with your partner and watch the starts. You can bring out some drinks and food as well. Something warm like hot chocolate would be great. Grab some snacks like strawberries, cheese, crackers or even wine if you want.
- Massage. Instead of going out for a massage, just give your partner a massage. You can each give each other a massage. Having your partner give you a massage is always so much better then going out and getting one from a complete stranger.
- Video Games. If you both enjoy playing video games, do that together. It’s always more fun when you play video games together.
- Scavenger Hunt. A scavenger hunt is always fun for everyone! Have your spouse answer some riddles to continue to find all the hidden riddles. Make them lead to something for your spouse. It could lead to a dinner, activities you have planned, a gift or anything you can think of.
- Go Ice Skating. Depending on where you live, ice skating is usually free or not to expensive. This is a great way to be close with your partner and have some fun while ice skating.
- Take a Walk. Bundle up and take a walk. I personally love taking walks, and it’s even better when you are with your loved ones.
- Go to the Park. You may be surprised at how fun it is at the park. There are usually a lot of activities you can do at the park, or you can just walk around. My park has tennis, disc golf, playground for kids and a few other things to do. Check out yours to see what they have.
- Play Games. I love board games! I would have so much fun just staying home and playing some games on Valentine’s Day. It’s fun and it costs nothing! (unless you have to go buy games of course)
- Fondue. If you have the fondue machine at home, this is a great way to spend your evening. Dip some fruits in some chocolate and feed each other. I think it is always fun to feed each other.
- Coffee Shop. Head to your local coffee shop and get something to drink and have some dessert. It’s a cheaper way to still go out and have something. I would eat dinner at home and then go out for some some beverages and dessert.
- Backyard Fire Pit. If you live where you can have a fire in your backyard, do that. You can cuddle up with your partner and roast some marshmallows.
- Go Sledding. Sledding is always a lot of fun. If you have enough snow, go out and find a great place to go sledding.
- Attend a free concert. You may be able to find a free concert at local parks around your area. That way you can still enjoy some music and not have to spend anything.
- Take a Bath. Whether you want to take one alone or with your spouse, a bath is a great way to relax.
There are so many ways you can spend Valentine’s Day together without spending to much. No matter what your budget is, you can always find something to do to spend time with your loved ones.
