A Frugal and Romantic Budget Valentine's Day


Some people feel that they must spend a lot of money in order to impress the person they love on Valentine's Day to keep them from thinking they're cheap. Others assume that there's nothing worth doing that doesn't cost a lot of money. But the truth is that some of the best dates on Valentine's Day (or any other day) are either inexpensive or free.

This year Valentine's Day is Saturday so day time dates are easy, and they are often cheaper too.

* Have a picnic in the park. Eating sandwiches together might not sound like a recipe for romance in any other setting, but packing a simple lunch and enjoying it in a beautiful natural setting can be a really special event. To make it even more special, make it a surprise. Pack the picnic basket, sneak it into the car and ask your partner to go for a ride without sharing the destination until you're there.

* Check out free or low-cost concerts. In the summer, many cities have a free concert series in the park. You might also find live music for cheap at your local civic centre or at fundraisers. This is a great way to broaden your musical horizons together.

* Play miniature golf. It's not just for kids - mini golf courses can be found in any city and many smaller towns. It's easy to play, even if you've never played real golf. And it may be better if you're not a golf pro - the worse you and your partner are at it, the more fun you'll have!

* Visit an art gallery or museum. Some offer free admission, and you can get into many others for just a few bucks per person. This makes a great date for those who are just getting to know one another, because it provides plenty for you to talk about.

These are just a few ideas for dates that won't cost an arm and a leg. If you're willing to look for them, cheap Valentine's Day date opportunities abound. So don't give up on Valentine's Day just because you're on a budget. Get creative and find fun yet frugal activities to do together!
