Low-Cost Ideas to Celebrate With the One You Love
Fancy dinners and roses are lovely for Valentine’s Day. But often the costs do not fit into your budget. Using a little creativity, your Valentine’s Day can be just as great without the expense.
- Movie and Popcorn: Cuddle under a comfy blanket while eating popcorn and watching a good movie. Spending some quality time together is a great way to enjoy Valentine’s Day.
- Have a Picnic: Pack a picnic basket and head outdoors. The trip does not have to be far. Go to your local park. If the weather is too cold for an outdoor picnic, set one up in your living room.
- Make a Homemade Valentine: Grab some construction paper and start creating a one of a kind Valentine for the one you love.
- Create a Photo Book: Print some of your favorite photos and create a photo album. Write notes on why the images are important to you. Tell the story behind each photo. Add quotes or poetry.
- Make a Special Meal: Make your significant other’s favorite meal. Or cook a meal together to enjoy as a couple.
- Eat Dessert: If you are not in the habit of making a dessert, find something special to prepare. For example, make brownies and use heart-shaped cookie cutters to cut our Valentine’s Day treats.
- Be a Tourist in Your Hometown: When was the last time you went to your local art gallery or museum? Being a hometown tourist is an exciting way to spend Valentine’s Day. Generally, the cost of admission is low. In many cases, local attractions will host Valentine’s Day events with special discounts.
- Go Hiking: Unplug and hit the trails. Spend an afternoon hiking on your favorite trail or find a new one to explore. Do not forget your dog. Hiking is a great Valentine’s Day treat for your four-legged companion.
- Go for a Walk: If hiking is too much for you, go for a walk. Stroll around your block. Grab your camera, head outdoors, and go for a nature walk. Enjoy your time together.
- Make Valentine’s Day a Family Night: Valentine’s Day does not need to be just about couples. Host a family fun night. Play board games. Watch a favorite family movie.
Make Valentine’s Day special for you. Whether you go out as a couple or relax at home with your family, spend quality time together.
