10 Ideas For A Cheap Or Free Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day can be one of the most expensive gift-giving holidays if you’re not careful. While I know all too well how much this is a Hallmark holiday, that doesn’t mean I don’t want to spend the day showering my sweetheart in love! Here are ten ideas for a cheap or free Valentine’s Day.
1. Take a Dance Class Together
Many dance studios offer a free trial class or a discount class for Valentine’s Day! Do your research and take a ballroom or salsa dancing class at a local dance studio.
2. Only Go Out for Dessert
If you are on a tight budget, dinner might be out of the question. However, you can save a ton of money and time by only going out for dessert! Pick a restaurant with a fun dessert, and take your sweetheart there after dinner.
3. Check Out Groupon for a Cheap Outing Idea
If you need a cheap date idea, check Groupon around February 1st! Many places will have discount movie packages or dining packages you can use to have a Valentine’s date on a dime.
4. Go Out for Drinks During Happy Hour
If you want to go out for drinks on Valentine’s Day, head to the bar or restaurant during happy hour. They will likely have discounts on Valentine’s Day, and you’ll score your drinks at half price!
5. Go for a Hike to a Place You’ve Both Never Been
A great low-cost or even free date option is to go for a hike to a place neither one of you has been! This is a great way to make new memories and get outdoors.
6. Recreate Your First Date
We all remember our first date! Take the time to recreate your first date with your spouse this Valentine’s Day and take a trip back in time to the night you first fell in love.
7. Watch the Sunrise Together (or Sunset if You’re Not a Morning Person)
There is nothing more beautiful than an early morning sunrise! Grab a cup of coffee and bundle up (it will be cold)! If you aren’t much of a morning person, consider watching the sunset instead.
8. Make a Homemade Meal Together
You don’t need any extra morning to make a special meal together! Whether you’re making spaghetti or hamburgers at home, it’s way more fun when you do it together!
9. Create a Blanket Fort and Have a Movie Marathon
Grab all the pillows and blankets in your home and build a fantastic blanket fort in your living room! Then, gather up your favorite movies and have a movie marathon from this magnificent fortress.
10. Play an At-Home Version of The Newlywed Game
You can never stop learning something new about your spouse, but how well do you know them? Play your own version of The Newlywed Game at home! Print out some questions ahead of time and see how many you get right!
Whether you are planning to go out or stay home for Valentine’s Day, I hope that this has inspired you to come up with a few low-cost ways to spoil your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day.
