Date Idea #3
We love discount deal sites like Groupon.com during these pricier seasons in the year. You can literally cut your spending in half if you’re planning a night out on the town or even giving a gift certificate as a gift. Just make sure you read the fine print and make your reservations early. You’re not the only one with this bright, budget friendly idea! You may even want to give one of the newer daily deal sites a chance, like GreatDateDeal.com. Their mantra is “finding a wonderful experience together shouldn’t be a hassle or break the bank!” They cater to couples and offer 50% to 90% off everything from restaurants and spa packages to local attractions and major events.
Date Idea #4
When’s the last time you watched your favorite love story together? This might be as simple as pulling a DVD off the shelf or accessing Netflix on the plasma screen. Put the kiddies to bed and pop some popcorn and a little bubbly while you’re at it! What’s more romantic than cuddling up to “Ghost,” “The Notebook” or whatever your all-time favorite love flick is? (And, if you’re really feeling fancy, go the extra mile and throw that fireplace on too! Wink, wink!)
Date Idea #5
Do you live in a place with beautiful natural scenery? The great thing about nature is that it’s literally all around us and it doesn’t cost a dime. Whether it’s a trip to your local beach, a walk on a trail or a view of a beautiful mountain; it can be done for practically nothing, but your appreciation for the outdoors and the one you’re with can make it one of the richest experiences of your life.
Whatever you decide to do on Valentine’s Day, invest the time in someone you love. Remember, you can create warm and fuzzy feelings while keeping your wallet in a happy place, as well. Don’t focus on what everyone else on Facebook is doing. Focus on what you two have built together and not simply what you have to buy for him and what your friends think he should buy for you!
