Valentine’s Day, the most romantic day of the year, is next week. So many starry-eyed lovers out there put pressure on themselves to outdo their date ideas from last year. Or maybe you are trying to impress a new love interest.
The last thing you want to make a habit of is takeout and Netflix, but you also don’t want to always end up at expensive restaurant.
No matter what the case may be, we’ve got you covered. Below, are five fun date ideas that won’t break the bank:
- Make a Home-cooked Meal
This is the more obvious choice. It is hard to go wrong with a home-cooked meal. It’s personal, comfortable, and the relaxed atmosphere will encourage more discussion.
You can spend the rest of the day or night listening to favorite playlists, having a movie marathon, etc.
- Recreate Your First Date
For those out there who are blessed enough to be celebrating with a long-term significant other, one creative way to show how much you care is by re-creating your first date night.
Walk the same streets. Visit the same spots. Grab a drink at the same bar. These memories will last longer than an expensive gift.
- Spend the Day Exploring Your City
It is surprising how many people have never visited the famous or historic landmarks of their home city. Busy, day-to-day life gets in the way. Kill two birds with one stone and make this a bonding experience with your favorite person, while also learning something along the way!
- Enjoy Wine and Chocolates at Sunset
Instead of going way over budget for a weekend getaway, pack up the essentials – wine and chocolate – and find a romantic location to watch the sunset. Take a hike up a mountain that overlooks the city, or find a nice balcony.
- Go Ice Skating
There is something incredibly fun about ice skating on a date. Maybe it’s the laughter from trying not to fall down. Here, you have a way to show off some hidden talents. This is a great date idea if you want to be active out in public, but don’t want to spend a lot of money.
