Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. For those who are planning a romantic date with their significant other, this can be a hectic time. Planning presents and organizing how the actual event is going to go down can be chaotic. There is always the usual dinner and a movie date idea, but that gets boring pretty fast. On the other hand, something over the top is not in everyone’s price range. As much as I want to splurge on Valentine’s Day, my bank account is still trying to recover from the holidays. So I put together a few budget-friendly date ideas to treat your significant other, without hurting your wallet too much.

1. Skating

Ice skating is one of the most romantic dates, especially if you decide to bring some hot chocolate for later. However, if you don’t like to be out in the cold, another option is to go roller skating indoors. This is a fun throwback that will bring out the kid in you and your partner.

2. Go antiquing

Visit some flea markets or thrift stores. It’s amazing what kind of cute things you can find while looking through antique shops. If you have a specific interest that both of you enjoy like music records or books, you can hit up a store that is specifically designated for that too.
