Let's be honest. Valentine's Day falls really close to Christmas and finding the money for an expensive night on the town isn't always feasible. The good news is there are so many inexpensive ideas that can be just as fun. Whether you recreate your first date or break out the coupons, you'll love these Valentine's date ideas on a dime.
Recreate Your First Date
Chances are your first date was inexpensive, yet it can be so romantic to recreate that night. If you live in the same area, go to the same restaurant or do whatever activity you chose for the date. Your significant other will be really impressed that you remembered all the details of that first night together.
Create an At-Home Spa Experience
Another romantic, yet inexpensive Valentine's date on a dime is to create a spa in your master suite. Light some scented candles in the bathroom, turn on some soft music, and break out the best bath products you have. You can then cover the bed in rose petals and give each other massages before enjoying a relaxing bath together.
Break Out the Coupons
Don't be afraid to break out the coupons. You might score a deal through Groupon or through e-mail newsletters you receive from your favorite restaurants. You can also find coupons for local candy stores, florists, and more. This allows you to enjoy Valentine's Day without breaking the bank.
No one said you had to go out on Valentine's Day night. Not only will the restaurants be super crowded, but you may be able to get better deals by celebrating early. Of course, when it comes to candy and gifts, holding off just one day can save you a lot of money.
Look for Specials
Last, but not least, look for restaurants offering special Valentine's Day dinners. Some restaurants put together amazing meals at incredible prices. You just have to call around and see what's available. Be sure to start calling around early so you can get your reservations in on time.
Valentine's Day doesn't have to be expensive. You just have to be creative. It might mean celebrating early or creating an at-home spa experience. Either way, you can save a lot of money and still enjoy a wonderful evening together. Lastly, don't forget that you can save a lot of money by holding off on candy and gifts until the day after Valentine's Day.
