Best Tips on How to Celebrate Valentine’s Day on a Budget

Sharing is Caring!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and most of us are now starting to think how to celebrate it. Definitely some will splurge, some will try to find a cost-effective way to celebrate and some will just let it pass just like any other day.

However, Valentine’s day is a day to celebrate love and we should celebrate it. It does not mean we had to break the bank because there are great ways to celebrate Valentines’s day when you are on a budget.

It does not matter if you are just dating, just got engaged, just got married or have been married for a long time. You can still make Valentine’s  Day full of love and memorable.

Below are some ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day when you are on a budget.

Start the Morning Right

There is no better way to wake up in the morning than with your love by your side. You can start your V-day celebration by making him or her breakfast in bed. This will brighten up the mood for the rest of the day. Whether both of you are taking the day off or working all day, both of you will be in a happy mood if you start the morning right.

Go for a Walk/Hike

If you guys are off of work on V-day and both of you love the outdoors, it will be a good idea to plan to go for a hike together and enjoy the outdoors.

This will not only give you and your partner time to enjoy each other but also it will contribute to your physical health.

Give Each Other Massages

This will be perfect after a long day’s work so gather up your favorite lotion or oil and give your partner a romantic massage.

Cook a Romantic Valentine’s Day Dinner

Instead of spending over $100 for a fancy dinner at a restaurant, take half of that amount to the grocery store to buy all your ingredients for a fancy dinner at home. For sure, you will still have leftover money to pick up a bottle of wine.

Indoor Picnic

When it is too cold to be outside, it’s still shouldn’t be an excuse  not to enjoy Vday. It will be the best time to fire up the fireplace, lay down the blanket and have a picnic. How about some s’mores?

Go Stargazing

What would be more romantic than lying down somewhere under the sky with your partner and gazing at the stars. Better yet, making a wish on a shooting star.

Game Night

If both of you love games, why not pick up a board game which is new to both of you or a new video game. It will be more fun since both of you will be figuring out the game together.

Bake Something Together

If you are into baking, plan on baking a cake/cookie that you and your partner like. You will then bake the cake/cookie together.

Outdoor Movie

Gather up a cozy blanket and a bag of popcorn then head out to an outdoor movie theatre. You can cuddle up with your partner, enjoy a movie and breath fresh air.

Have a Movie Marathon at Home

If it is too cold to be outside, have a movie marathon at home. Fire up your Netflix, grab a bag of popcorn and cuddle up with a partner on the couch.

Recreate Your First Date

Since this article is about how to celebrate Valentine’s day when you are on a budget, you should only do this tip if your first date was not a fancy one.

Going down memory lane will stir up happy thoughts. Spend the evening remembering how your first date was, what you guys were wearing, what you ordered, what you talked about, etc.

End the Night Right

No matter what you did to spend Valentine’s day, always make sure to end the night right. You can do this by telling your partner how much you love him/her and how much you appreciate him/her.

You can even write your partner a love letter and have him/her read it before you go to bed.

Celebrating Valentine’s day when you are on a budget does not make your love any less. It’s the thought that counts.

Valentine’s Day is all about showing our love and appreciation to our love ones. Although, we should always show our love and appreciation everyday, it is on Valentine’s Day that we get a chance to make them feel more special.

With our high hospital expenses recently, there is no way we can splurge for Valentine’s Day this year. We will be celebrating Valentine’s Day on a budget.

We will, for sure, be doing one of the tips above. Maybe some Netflix…

Do not forget to add Valentine’s day budget on your monthly budget.
