For many February is still a time of recovery and rebuilding savings after the holidays, which can put a damper on Valentine’s Day for many couples. The good news is there are some great options for cheap dates for Valentine’s Day.
Make your spouse feel loved with every day moments all about them. While not a traditional date when you find yourself on a budget this is a great way to make your spouse feel loved all year long. Make their favorite dinner, dress up a bit, rent their favorite movie, and put the kids to bed early to enjoy a cheap Valentine’s date night at home that leaves no doubt in your partner’s mind that you love them.
Look for deals on local fun at Groupon. Groupon is a great way to find a fun and cheap date idea. Around valentines you will find great couples activities from lazer tag to spa dates for next to nothing. Not into active dates? Grab a deal on movie tickets or a fun local restaurant that you have never tried before.
Find a new series neither of you have watched on Netflix or Amazon Prime. Put the kids to bed. Grab some snacks and binge watch until you fall asleep cuddled on the couch.
Go out on a high school style date. This is a great way to celebrate with your high school sweetheart. Dig out your Alma Mater’s colors and hit the next basketball or football game. For a few dollars you get to rehash old memories, support your old school, and have a fun night as a couple.
Score a cheap dinner with Restaurant.com. Look for a deal on a nice burger place and go enjoy yourselves with a burger and maybe even a milk shake. You don’t need a fancy Valentine’s dinner to make the most out of a meal together. Live where it is warm in February? Go for a stroll after dinner.
Cook a meal together. Cooking is a great way to bond. Whip up a stir fry or bake a homemade pizza. Laugh, smile, and enjoy the time together. This is one of the best cheap dates for Valentine’s Day and every other day of the year.
Want to give back? Why not find a project you can volunteer for together? Find a cause close to your hearts and spend some quality time doing some good together. Some of the best times I have spent with my husband were volunteering together serving meals or running stands at charity events.
Do a home improvement project together. Not only are you getting cheap quality time together you are also benefiting the entire family. In the end the return on this one is huge. You can get great deals on discounted Gift Cards to the local hardware store for supplies on Card Pool. Do the project together start to finish from shopping for supplies to the labor.
Gather other couple friends and have a potluck dinner. You get to enjoy quality time, build friendships, try new foods, and everyone that joins you gets to enjoy a cheap date night. Does it really get any better than that? Spice it up a bit with a few card or board games anyone has running around.
Got a gym membership to reach your New Year’s resolutions? Change into some workout clothes and go hang out at the gym together for a great option on cheap dates for Valentine’s Day, after all you already paid for it.
