Here are six more cheap ideas for how to celebrate Valentine’s Day, courtesy of the Debt Diva, a blog associated with CareOne debt counseling services. Instead of exchanging gifts, plan one of these activities together.
Treasure Hunt: Create a map and clues leading to special places and favorite spots. Hide a token gift at the end to wrap it all up.
Movie Marathon: Pick one romantic movie each, make popcorn and cuddle on the couch. Not sure what to watch? Here is a list of 50 romantic movies.
Bring back memories: Pull out your wedding photos, pics from a trip you took together, or watch a video of your wedding.
Live Music: Check out a concert in your town that you both enjoy. There are also local cover bands that play music of a favorite artist at an inexpensive venue or even for free.
Romantic Dinner: Have a nice candlelit dinner at home. Cooking at home costs much less than going to fancy restaurant. Dress up in something nice and make something new.
Wine Tasting: Many vineyards offer a tasting for around $10. This is a romantic fun way to spend the day. If you make a purchase at the end, many vineyards will even apply the tasting fee to the product. If weather allows, bring a picnic lunch to eat between tastings.
