Does it seem like you are just barely recovering from the money you spent on Christmas and suddenly Valentine’s Day is right around the corner? Of course, you want to do something special for Valentine’s Day, but you’d like it to be affordable. Here are some affordable last-minute date ideas for Valentine’s Day.
Visit a planetarium- Planetariums are not only educational, but can be fun and romantic as well. Some planetariums, like the Madison Metropolitan School District Planetarium in Madison, Wisconsin and the Morehead Planetarium & Science Center in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, feature special Valentine’s Day programs and specials.
Take a romantic stroll– Taking a stroll after dinner is a great Valentine’s Day activity, especially if you live in an area where the weather is nice. If you live near the beach, this can make the stroll even more romantic. You can walk, talk, hold hands and just be in each other’s company.
Go for a long drive– Consider taking an unplanned long drive. Just jump in the car, start driving and see where the road takes you.
Cook a romantic meal– If both of you know how to cook, create a romantic meal at home. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, just a meal you both enjoy. Play some soft music in the background and add a couple of candles to the dinner table for some added romantic flair.
Watch romantic movies– Pop some popcorn, cuddle under your favorite cozy blanket and watch some romantic movies with your sweetheart. Need a few ideas? 1939- Gone with the Wind, 1993- Sleepless in Seattle, 1997- Titanic and 2004- The Notebook.
Go on a coffee date– You don’t have to go to an extravagant restaurant on Valentine’s Day. Instead, head to a local coffee shop or café, order your favorite cup of java and just sit down and take some time to talk for a while.
Roast s’mores by a bonfire– There is nothing better than a nice roaring bonfire on a chilly Valentine’s evening. What could make it even better? Making a sweet treat, like s’mores, with your sweetheart.
