Valentine’s Day is around the corner. Do you have date plans for your special someone already? Don’t get pressured to burn your savings just to have a good time. You know you can still be romantic while on a budget!
Here are good old wise tipid-tips worth considering:
Set a Romantic Dinner at Home
Dining out is very common during Valentine’s Day. Reservations may be fully-booked if you don’t do it ahead of time. So why not have your dinner date at home? Aside from flexibility in your budget, you can enjoy the privacy with your s.o. You can order food for dinner, buy ingredients together or perhaps surprise your date with your cooking skills.
You can still get the romantic ambience like fancy restaurants by creating a setup with candles, flowers and your favorite romantic songs playing on your speakers.
Watch Movie at home
Why not Netflix and Chill? If you are a couple who likes going to the movies, then nothing will beat watching your favorite movies together in the comforts of your home. You can save a lot of money by subscribing to a streaming service instead of going to a mall cinema to watch just one film. You can have a wide selection of shows to watch. Go for a marathon or binge-watch your favorite series and then make it special with bowls of popcorn!
Explore Mother Nature
“Mag-moment” with mother nature! Go hiking, trekking, camping or biking. It’s a great way to make memories, enjoy amazing scenery, and share a wonderful experience. This could also be a way for you and your partner to exercise!
Make Personalized Gifts
You don’t need to buy expensive gifts. Many find personalized and hand-made gifts to be more thoughtful and meaningful. Try DIY Valentine’s Cards with your sweet message or give your partner some love notes. Love letters never gets old as they speak directly from the heart and will for sure make your partner “kilig”.
Need more ideas?
Make couple bracelets using leather cords, print your own couple T-shirts, paint/draw a portrait of your partner or if you’re extra creative make your personal love story book with your pictures and memories. It’s all about creativity and resourcefulness!
Give the Gift of Time
Give your time. This is the most valuable gift you can give to your special someone during V-day– or any other days of the year. You don’t have to spend money on someone to show your love. When two people truly care for one another it is the little things that mean the most. Take a day off from work and do something spontaneous with your partner like go for a picnic or walk in the park. Reminisce about how you’ve been over the years and simply enjoy each other’s company.
