It’s the love month once again and everyone is going crazy about it. Especially the single ladies and gents out there. If in case you already have a date on Valentine’s Day, you are definitely qualified to read this. I know it’s really difficult to plan a romantic date without going over the budget. So, I’d like to help you out and give you ideas to have a cheap, yet romantic Valentine’s Date.
1. GO FOR A JOG TOGETHER
Valentine’s Day is set for the weekend so ask her to wake up early and go to a nearby park and jog together. Help each other in stretching. Talk about your food choices and diet plans. You can also bet on a race and make her win eventually. Corny but sweet. LOL!
2. PLAY WITH YOUR PETS
I mean, the REAL pets. Hahaha! It will be very romantic if you do it in your own backyard or at the park.
3. COOK OR BAKE SOMETHING TOGETHER
Go look for a menu of a food that you are not familiar with. Buy the ingredients together at the grocery store. Then help each other bake or cook that kind of food. It’s a good way to bond with each other.
4. ROAD TRIP WITHIN THE CITY
Do you have a car? Well, you can roam around the city and find a place to hang out for awhile. Go sightseeing and you can buy your food along the streets. You can have a stop-over and have a drink. Like on top of a hill or along the beach and do this during sunset. And don’t forget to play some romantic acoustic songs to top it all off!
5. SET A LOW-KEY PICNIC
Picnics must be cheap. Take out some food at a nearby fast food chain and use a colorful mat. You can go to a park or you can do it in your backyard. Use tea light candles or scented candles if you have any. Sprinkle some rose petals or any flower petals on and around the picnic mat. Then set a playlist of nice songs on your phone to make it more romantic.
6. MOVIE OR SERIES MARATHON
You can rent DVD’s and watch movies with her. You can do it inside your room or in the living room. Cook some popcorn and buy some sodas. Bring in all your pillows and make a small couch. You can also watch a whole season of your favorite TV series.
7. PLAY VIDEO GAMES W/ BETS
We all love video games, right? Play some two-player games like Street Fighter, Tekken, or whatever you can think of, then the loser will have to do something. I’m sure this is really fun.
8. KARAOKE IS OK!
Go for a sing-a-long together. Sing anything you want and be surprised with her song choices. Maybe you have the same favorite songs too! You’ll end up choosing your theme song.
9. MASSAGE @ THE PARK
Getting a nice massage at the park is cheaper than in a spa. You’ll be sitting next to each other and enjoy watching her get tickled. (I don't have any other photo. Sorry LOL)
10. BUILD A NICE FORT INSIDE YOUR ROOM
Use a lot of blankets and make a nice and cozy fort like this. Turn off the room lights and use some old Christmas lights to make it more romantic. Again, the more pillows the better. Use tea lights or flame-less candles too. Sprinkle rose petals for that romantic touch and spray some citrus or flowery perfume to set the mood.
There you go! Hope this post helps you in any way. Just remember to enjoy the day together.
Thanks for reading my blog! Happy Valentine’s Day! <3
