Fun Cheap Date Ideas for Valentine’s Day


With the soppiest day of the year fast approaching, you’re either thinking of ways to enjoy the day with your other heart or you’re thinking which Ben&Jerry’s ice cream you’ll be sitting alone with. For those who fall into the first category – here are some cheap (but fun) date ideas for Valentine’s Day…

Ice Skating
It’s fun, cheap, and cheerful! And it’s still seasonally appropriate with this cold weather. It’s a nice way to spend one-on-one time together and if it’s a first date, it generally breaks the ice (excuse the pun.)

Video Game Night
It’s the little things we remember! Imagine; snacks, booze, two controllers, and a damn good video game session. A co-op game might be better than a VS game if you don’t want to fall out on the most romantic day of the year.

Lounge Room Picnic
Hear me out, sitting on the floor infront of your telly snuggled up in blankets, watching some classic movies, whilst surrounded by your favourite snacks and favourite person. Don’t forget wine. What’s a romantic carpet picnic without wine?

Local Gigs
Head to a local bar or venue and check out the up and coming talent of the music industry.

Hiking
Not everyone’s cup of tea, but why not go and explore somewhere completely unknown to you both? Discovering new things and places with that special someone makes those discoveries personal to you and make the best memories.

Spa Day
Having a pamper day together doesn’t have to be pricey! Many public pools come with saunas, steam rooms, and jacuzzis!

Arcade Night
Have some pennies lying around? A night of arcade games, candy floss, and eachother is a cheap, fun night out with a lot of meaning.
