With expensive cocktails, flowers, heart-shaped jewelry, and a fancy dinner, it’s not hard to spend a small fortune on Valentine’s Day. But you don’t need to drop hundreds to celebrate with the one you love, or just like a lot. So if you’re looking for a low-cost way to celebrate with your Valentine or just want to do something different this year, here are some ideas for dates that’ll show you care and cost you less than $50.
Plan a wine and cheese night - Why squeeze your way into an overcrowded, overpriced Valentine’s Day dinner at a restaurant when you can customize a romantic wine and cheese night at home for so much less? Head to Trader Joe’s for their impressive selection of delicious yet inexpensive wine and cheese, grab some crackers and lay it all out in a living room picnic. Light some candles, queue up your Valentine’s Day playlist and you’re good to go.
A night at the museum - If you want to get out and soak up some culture with your Valentine, try an afternoon or evening at a local museum. Find an art show or an exhibit you both want to check out and for about as much as you’d spend for a night at the movies, you can shake up your routine and have a romantic Valentine’s Day.
Go out for just dessert - Make a late reservation at your favorite spot for desserts and treat your Valentine to some sweets. You’ll only spend a fraction because you’re not ordering a four-course meal and nothing says “I love you” like sugar does.
