Last Minute Valentine’s Day Ides to Fit Your Budget

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Movies and television shows always show romantic trips, gold jewelry, or other luxurious gifts. In reality, Valentine’s Day may not be a budget-friendly holiday. Showing your significant other you care does not mean breaking the bank. The romantic effort should always be more important than the gift.

Budget Friendly Valentine’s Day Ideas

Do not let the pressure of Valentine’s Day get to you or your loved one. The day should be about your happiness and love for each other.

  1. Indoor Picnic

Is the weather not ideal for an outdoor picnic? Bring the fun indoors. Spread out a blanket in your living room. Play soft music. Enjoy a picnic style meal in the comfort and warmth of your own home.

  1. Mixed Tape

Okay, so the term mixed tape is completely outdated. But the concept is still an excellent idea for Valentine’s Day. Create a playlist of your loved one’s favorite songs. Do not forget to add songs with special meaning. For example, what song was playing on your first date? If you are married, remember to include the song from your first dance at your wedding.

  1. Romantic Dinner

Try a new recipe or make favorite to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Add candlelight. If you are concerned about the fire hazard, use flameless candles to inspire a romantic atmosphere.

  1. A Special Dessert

Bake your loved one’s cookies or a heart shape cake. A special dessert is great for Valentine’s Day.

  1. Special Notes

Put your feelings for your significant other into words. Write poems, special memories, or create suggestive coupons. Leave notes in various places to show your love including:

  • On the coffee maker
  • Computer keyboard
  • Bathroom mirror
  • In the vehicle

Get creative. Make your notes heart-shaped.  Or make homemade Valentine’s Day cards.

  1. Be a Tourist

Check out local events. Many different venues may offer free or low-cost admittance of Valentine’s Day. Visit your local museum or art gallery. Being a tourist in your home town is a perfect way to spend quality time together on Valentine’s Day.

  1. Local Brewery or Pub

Your local brewery, pub or bar may be hosting a band on Valentine’s Day. Go listen to a new band.

  1. Staying Home

Often the best way to spend Valentine’s Day is at home. A long work week or hectic schedule may leave you and your loved one in need of a night of relaxation. Put your cell phones on vibrate. Watch a movie or catch up on your favorite television show. Make popcorn. Snuggle on the couch. Simply spend the night together.
