Show her you love her this Valentine's Day with these cheap date ideas that will keep you in her heart, and keep your wallet out of the red.
Free Art Galleries
These are the best places to spark some romance, especially when you're wallet is feeling light. You can pretend to know a thing or two about impressionist paintings with this quick quide on how to view art, and it's always nice to be able to walk hand in hand and share something in common. Even if you don't like art, both of you can snuggle in the corner and make fun of the other people or the weird abstracts that don't make any sense.
Take a Walk in the Park
Girls love chatting about nothing, and unless you're stuck in the freezing ice storm in the eastern states, you can always enjoy a little jaunt through a winter wonderland. Plant some flowers at the end of the walk, or spring a surprise gift on her when she least expects it and she'll be remembering this day for years to come.
Breakfast in Bed
Maybe you're both workaholics and you don't have the time for a romantic dinner, or the money. What better way to start your lovers day than with the cheap date option sitting right there in your bed -- and you don't even have to get dressed. Maker her some banana pancakes, fry up some bacon and a nice french press you'll be cuddling your way to lover's paradise before you have to hit the daily grind.
Stay in Dinner and a Movie
Women love it when you prepare dinner for them. But don't get too extravagant you end up burning your hopes and dreams of some late night tussling into oblivion. A nice simple spaghetti dinner, some middle shelf red wine and a delicious salad are all you need to woo your woman off her feet. You could slip a little something in her hand under the table during your first course or table the wine with a single red rose and the line, "you're the only one I need." Set the scene with an old movie like Casablanca, or even Sleepless in Seattle and snuggle up with some homemade popcorn (not the microwave crap) and she'll be buttered up and ready for some lovin.
What better way to kindle some romance than to grab a bottle of wine, a blanket, some chocolates and ponder your place in the universe together. You could name a star after her, or get a stargazing app for your phone and spend the night lost in the wonders of the night sky.
Be a tourist in your own town
Valentine's day is a day to make you remember that the love you have is special. That's all that matters. No matter where you are, just being together can make you see the world around you in a whole new way. Take a guided tour around the city. Go to a bar you've never been and listen to a band you've never heard of. The $10 cover charge will be worth the memory of stepping in to the unknown with that special someone.
Love doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg. With these cheap date ideas, your Valentine will be remembering you for years to come.
