Whether you have been with your significant other for a few weeks or for decades, chances are he or she expects you to come up with something fun for Valentine’s Day. However, if you’re short on funds, planning something memorable without breaking the bank can be a challenge. Try some of these inexpensive date ideas for a Valentine’s Day on a budget.
Ice skating and roller skating rinks are springing up all over the United States for inexpensive retro fun. Skate rentals, dinner and drinks for the entire night can be had on a serious budget. It’s a great way to enjoy an evening and get a workout in. Even if you’ve never skated before, you can have a great time teaching each other or picking it up together.
Many day spas offer discounts for couples. Get a massage or a facial, and come out looking and feeling your best. Couples services like massages on adjacent tables and soaks in private hot tubs are romantic as well as relaxing. If the full spa package is too much, shell out for individual services like pedicures or massages.
This may be how you were planning to spend your evening if you weren’t organizing a Valentine’s Day date. However, an evening of video games can be just as romantic as going out to an expensive dinner. Choose a game that you can be sure you’ll both enjoy. Cute retro games like Mario Kart are fun for just about everyone. You might also want to consider a cooperative game like Portal if competing doesn’t strike you as being in spirit of Valentine’s Day.
Pair any of these cheap date ideas with a cute Valentine’s Day card packed full of photos to give your significant other something to remember the date by.
"I love this 5x7 Easel. It's small enough to fit on my desk at work. It has enough slots to capture my 3 precious children."
"I ordered these for my daughter to give to her friends. They are adorable and the perfect size. I like that they don't have a "to:" line, so she can pass them out without having to fill in specific names first. One will make a cute keepsake for me too."
"I got these cards for my 2-year old son to pass out to his pre-school class and teachers and family members. They are beautifully printed on soft thick paper. I love the size, they are pretty small, but come with their own tiny envelopes! Very happy with my purchase."
"I used this card for our Valentines Day/ birth announcement and I have gotten texts, emails and phone calls complimenting this card how gorgeous it was! If you want a wow factor....this is your card!!"
"We used the pink version of this Valentine's card to send out wedding announcements/thank yous from our November 2013 wedding. The cards are more beautiful in person than on the screen and the photo quality is amazing. We mixed in some color and black and white photos and used the text page to write a note to our friends and families. I highly recommend this product."
