“Just because you go for something budget-friendly doesn’t mean it has to be boring or cheap! We’ve pulled together a whole list of things you can do on Valentine’s Day.
“Whether you’re after a fun filled day or a quiet night in, there are definitely loads of suggestions for a budget friendly Valentine’s Day.”
10 budget friendly Valentine’s Day ideas:
- Spa day
Booking a spa day can be expensive but the good news is this can easily be created at home! Grab some massage oils, put on some calming music and grab some bath bombs for a calming and romantic evening in.
- Candlelit dinner
Why not impress your partner by recreating their favourite restaurant meal at home? Not only is this a thoughtful idea but it will cost you much less than it would to go out. Some high end supermarkets even offer Valentine’s Meal Deals for budget prices so couples can still enjoy a bit of luxury without the price tag.
- Make your own cocktails
If you’re looking for a more creative activity, try creating your own cocktails! Put on your favourite playlist and spend the evening making your favourite drinks from Pina Coladas and Mojito’s to Espresso Martinis and Strawberry Margaritas.
- Have an indoor picnic
It may be cold outside but you can still create a picnic in the comfort of your very own home. Lay some blankets on the floor and make some tasty treats to enjoy like chocolate covered strawberries or a cheese board.
- Build a cosy fort
Create the perfect cosy setting for a fun movie night by building a fort. Drape some blankets and some fairy lights to create the ultimate romantic setting.
- Make playlists
Back in the day people used to make cassette mixtapes for one another to show their love. Each create a personalised playlist and play them for each other on Valentine’s Day over some drinks.
- Pull out a board game
Playing a board game with your significant other is a really fun way to spend the evening. If you want to try something new, you can even get board games and card games made just for couples!
- Bake together
Put on your aprons and challenge your partner to a bake off! Perhaps you can both make one another a cake and see who comes out on top, you’ll also have some tasty treats to enjoy later in the evening.
- Have a movie marathon night
If you’re looking for a chilled out evening, throw on your favourite pyjamas, gather your favourite snacks and cuddle up on the sofa and have a marathon of your favourite movies.
- End your evening with a sunset walk
Take a stroll through your local park and end your evening with a gorgeous sunset walk together.
