15 Valentine’s Day Dates [on the cheap!]


Valentine’s Day is coming up quick! Have you and your honey planned a date yet? Nate and I like to keep a simple tradition we started when we had our first Valentine’s Day together. When we moved to Nashville we were extremely poor, so on Valentine’s Day we splurged a bit and bought a Little Caesar’s $5 pizza and ate it by candlelight. Every year since then, we’ve bought a Little Caesar’s pizza and enjoyed it together, remembering that first year in Nashville that was kind of a difficult one that we conquered together.

If you haven’t planned your day yet, I’ve come up with a little list of some fun date ideas that are romantic, fun, and don’t cost much at all. Some of them are completely free!


+ take a walk in a park together that you’ve never been to before
+ make a blanket fort and watch a movie inside
+ cook a nice dinner at home and light some candles
+ plan your dream vacation together
+ an old classic: breakfast in bed!
+ take a picnic lunch to a park
+ star gaze with a bottle of wine
+ if you have a projector, set up a backyard movie night
+ board game night
+ chocolate fondue & fruit
+ move the furniture and set up a dance floor. Add some lights for a nice romantic glow
+ take a hot bubble bath together 🙂
+ gather some firewood and build a bonfire in the backyard
+ tour a brewery together and taste some craft beer
+ create a bucket list together


There are tons more ideas to come up with. And Pinterest has a ton of ideas as well. If you need some other ideas, I’d recommend visiting The Dating Divas website. I hope your day I’d memorable and special, no matter what you do.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
