8 Ways To Save On Valentine’s Day

Having the perfect night out doesn’t mean you need to break the budget. Here are eight ideas for a thrifty Valentine’s Day date:

  1. Cook a romantic dinner at home instead of eating at an overpriced restaurant. Set the ambiance with some scented candles and soft music, and save a bundle!
  1. Make your own gift. Instead of buying something pricey, frame a nice picture of the two of you or write a meaningful card.
  1. If you are going out to eat, make sure to check Groupon and LivingSocial for deals on restaurants near you before making reservations. Many restaurants promote special fixed price, multi-course meals to Valentine’s Day Couples.
  1. Skip the wine bottle at the restaurant and pop the cork at home instead.
  1. Explore the great outdoors! Bundle up and take a refreshing walk under the stars. Then, go home and warm up in front of the fireplace with steaming mugs of hot chocolate.
  1. Create a scavenger hunt filled with riddles and clues your sweetheart must answer!
  1. Get cultured on a budget by taking advantage of area museum’s free or discounted rates at specific times or nights.
  1. Watch romantic movies! Share a bowl of popcorn and relive your early dating days.
