Valentine’s Day is here. This means some of you may have the perfect date planned and the perfect gift planned out weeks or months in advance, but for others … it’s not that easy. Many people think Valentine’s Day means taking out a small loan just to afford a necklace or a bottle of wine at the most expensive restaurant in town.

We are here to tell you, that is not the case.

We are writing this blog with full intentions of showing all of you that Valentine’s Day can be celebrated without spending a boat load of money. I know some people who would argue the creativity and thoughtfulness behind Valentine’s Day is more important than the amount of money spent to celebrate the day.

In the remainder of this blog, we are going to share with you the amazing gift and date ideas that are totally doable and can be a lot of fun!

Here are 10 pretty generic but still cheap and fun Valentine’s Day date ideas…

  • Go to a museum
  • Bowling Trivia Night
  • Movie and Wine Night (At Home)
  • Karaoke
  • Go to your local brewery or winery
  • Have a game night
  • Cook dinner
  • Ice skating
  • Couples Massage (A little bit on the pricier side but doubles as a date AND a gift)

We also thought of some super creative and fun date ideas for those who like to think outside of the box! (Still inexpensive and fun!)

  • Home-hosted Iron Chef Competition
  • Play the penny game
  • Let the map decide your fate
  • Create a scavenger hunt for your significant other
  • Indoor amusement - Trampoline park, Indoor skydiving, Go-Karting

Now for the gifts, we’ve certainly come up with a few. Here are a few inexpensive gift ideas for both men and women!

  • Chocolates and Flowers (DUH)
  • Candles
  • Personalized Jewelry (Etsy, check it out!)
  • A Date Night Memory Book
  • Bath Salts/Bath Bombs
  • Coffee Mugs
  • A New Wallet
  • Table Top Air Hockey
  • Beard Trimming Kit

We could definitely think of many, many more but hey you’ve gotta do your own research too! At least hopefully after reading this you can realize Valentine’s Day does not always have to mean going broke. You can have fun while saving money and STILL show your significant other how much you care about them!

We hope you have the best Valentine’s Day and if you use any of our ideas, let us know! We’d love to know we could help someone out!
