Last Minute Valentine's Day Dates - On a Budget

It’s Valentine’s Day and you still don’t have plans.

DON’T PANIC! I’ve got you covered.

Even though you might be on a budget and not looking to spend a ton of money on your significant other because well, there are always bills to pay, there are a few ways you can still make Valentine’s Day happen!

1) Picnic at the park. Okay, okay, I get it, the weather isn’t that nice for a picnic, but the fresh air will do you some good. Just pack a few sammies, chips, fruit salad and head to the park! It’s a cheap afternoon date that won’t break the bank.

2) Go out for dessert. You can have a nice sit-down dinner at home and then go out for dessert. Why not try Carol’s for ice cream? Or, if you’re in the mood for cake, Chocolate Moose, Nose Dive, or even a milkshake at Grill Marks are all good option!

3) Stay in and make dinner. Polish off a bottle of wine with a homemade dinner with your significant other. Nothing says romance quite like bonding over creating a dish together. Spaghetti & meatballs, anyone? And, if you don’t want to spend money on dinner, just make it or buy it yourself!

4) Go out for coffee. Grab a cup of joe at Coffee Underground, Spill the Beans, or any other coffee joint in the Upstate!

5) At home spa. Why pay for a spa when you can have one at home? Pamper you and your significant other by giving massages, relaxing with a bath and a glass of wine. After that, watch a movie. Ah, what a perfect night!

So, if you’re in a crunch, choose any of these budget=friendly Valentine’s Day date ideas! Let me know if you pick one! Happy Valentine’s Day!
