There’s no price-tag on romance and 2021 is the perfect year to have Valentine’s Day on a budget! Forget the trinkets, and champagne dinners this year. Make memories that will last a lifetime with our super easy, super cheap Valentine’s Day ideas.

Bridgerton-inspired date night at home

Bridgerton, a steamy, sweet, witty Regency-era show on Netflix has taken American audiences by storm. If you haven’t watched it yet, binge watch it with your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day. If you HAVE watched it, why not dress up as Daphne Bridgerton and the Duke of Hastings and have a little Regency ball right in your living room? Drink lemonade, eat finger food with the fancy silverware, gossip cattily about your friends, and call each other “Your Grace” while exchanging ardent glances across the table.

Cook a delicious home-cooked meal

Don’t worry if cooking isn’t your strong suit. Several meal kit subscription services deliver prepped ingredients and easy-to-follow recipe cards right to your doorstep. Surprise your loved one with their favorite food, or better yet, cook together.

Have a mid-week picnic lunch

If you’re both working, try to arrange to meet at a nearby park you both love and have lunch together. There’s something sweet and romantic about a picnic blanket and sandwiches and it’s inexpensive too.

Get creative with gifting

If you’re a writer, write a love letter. If you like crafts, create a photo album. Use video editing software to make a digital love letter. Creativity is the unsung hero of modern love.

Have a budget shopping spree

Set a budget to buy something special for yourself. The rule is that you have to give the difference to your partner. This could go any number of ways. You might want your partner to get the lion’s share of the money. You might both find something perfect. You might both give up and go to dinner. Whatever. It will still be a lot of giggles and fun – perfect ingredients for romance.
