The Only List You’ll Need for Valentine Gifts

Date Night In

Have a spa night, movie night, picnic on the floor kind of night in. These dates can be fun, done after the littles are in bed, and won’t cost too much.

Here are some fun gifts or ideas that will make your date night in awesome!

Date Night Out

There are literately endless possibilities. But, in keeping with budget friendly ideas here we go:

  • Movie and dinner
  • Recreate your first date
  • Each pick one thing (dinner or activity)
  • Fast food/drive through: 5 course meal
  • Dancing
  • Walk around the town
  • Bike ride
  • Snowshoeing, cross country skiing, downhill skiing (cheap if you already have the equipment and ski passes, or renting may be in your budget)
  • Drive inn movie
  • Ice skating
  • Play
  • Laser tag
  • Ax throwing
  • Use gift cards you have laying around
  • Find a coupon to something you haven’t tried

With a little bit of thought and some creativity you can come up with a fun and inexpensive Valentine’s date out on the town.

Gifts Galore

This is where the fun begins! Maybe only one of you gets a gift for the other and switch off each year. You can give each other a limit on how much you can spend. Or maybe you save your money and go out and spend time together instead of buying gifts.

You can use that money to go towards something you both want and need. Put it towards a trip or getaway. But, if you really want to do Valentine gifts for or with your love one, GO FOR IT!
