Valentine's Day Date Ideas on a Budget

Valentine's Day is upon us, and it is time to start planning ahead for the big day. While many like to celebrate the day by giving their significant other gifts, flowers, or chocolate, there are many other ways to celebrate the day, like a date night. Perhaps you would rather do both a gift and a date, and that’s alright too. Whichever is the case, the following are some easy Valentine’s Day date ideas on a budget, which anyone can appreciate.


Cooking is an easy and heartfelt way to celebrate the day with your loved one. It can be done any time in the day, and will be a special treat. If you cook at home, you can even make it a fun and playful encounter by throwing some ingredients at one another. After all, the day is about love and laughter. If cooking is not your forte, consider ordering in and plating it like a professional chef might. 


Going for a walk in the park can be more romantic than staying in. The two of you can spend time together, breathe in the fresh air and relax while spending time together. For an even more romantic setting, pick a place at the park to sit on the grass and watch the sun rise or set. This is always a beautiful experience.


Make it a movie night with any and all romance movies. Whether these movies are from Netflix or the RedBox, the two of you can snuggle up and watch as much as you would like. Make some movie snacks or something sweet to have while watching the films. After all, who doesn’t love snuggling tight while watching a steamy romance?


Make it an adventure by making a Valentine’s Day scavenger hunt. This is not only a fun and exciting way to get your loved one feeling special, but they too can have fun. Make the setting for the treasure hunt somewhere that is easy to navigate. You can make a scavenger hunt as in depth as you would like. 



Some suggestions for treasure can be that brand new jewelry you got for her, or that new watch you may have bought for him. No matter what the prize is, be sure not to give in and tell them. Most importantly, help them if they get stuck, after all, you know the answers to the riddles. Don’t let them get stuck. 


Looking for an even more adventure of a scavenger hunt? Check out Geo Caching.


While these are all wonderful ways to spend your Valentine’s Day on a budget, V-Day isn’t always about a significant other. Some folks like to give back to the world and use this day to fill someone else’s life with love. This year spend time volunteering at a local soup kitchen, or preferred organization that you or your loved ones believe in. This is a great way to add love to the world and let those who feel unloved, know they truly are in someone’s heart.


So no matter how you decide to spend your Valentine’s Day, remember


All you need is love.

  1. We normally celebrate Valentine's Day by doing what we always do. I think that once we had kids life changed. We are too tired but we should make more of an effort.

  4. Since my husband and I are in dire need of date nights, I would take any of the above. Gosh, it has been years since we last saw a movie!

    1. I'm not sure about your town, but have you tried looking nearby for discount cinemas? Here locally we have the Grand Sierra movie theater which shows movies for under $5. Maybe something like that. Make a day trip of it, and see a movie. :)

  8. We love to go geocaching. It's just a bit cold here in Michigan to do it. You never know how the weather is going to be come Feb. For Valentines day the hubs and I usually go out of town. We use that as a weekend getaway to recharge our batteries. I also tend to use it as a way for me to sample some new eats to write about on YumEating.com
