4 Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day on a Budget

valentines dayValentine’s Day is just around the corner! If you are thinking that means pricey gifts and expensive dates, think again. Use these four hacks for an ideal Valentine’s Day that won’t break the budget.


Dine In. Restaurants typically boost their prices when the whole world is going out to eat, so you’ll likely be paying extra just because it’s Valentine’s Day. Instead of going out, cook up a gourmet meal at home. You can easily spend less than half of what you would pay for at a restaurant, by opting to do it yourself. If you both enjoy cooking, prepare your delicious dinner together!



Explore the great outdoors. It may be cold out, but you can still spend some shared time together outdoors. Bundle up and enjoy some winter activities! You can visit a local ski hill, take a hike at your nearest state park, or go ice-skating. Afterward, head home to warm up with a mug of hot chocolate and your favorite movies.



Present them with a thoughtful gesture. Offer to do a household chore you know your partner loathes, like washing dishes or laundry. In a Valentine’s Day card, include a “certificate” that gifts the recipient with four loads of laundry, washed, dried and put away, or four evenings of dirty dishes washed, rinsed and drained. This won’t cost you anything, but it is sure to put a smile on your partner’s face!



Go see a movie matinee. Instead of paying the maximum for movie tickets, see your favorite movie at a daytime matinee for a fraction of the price.
