Your Budget-Friendly Valentine’s Day Guide

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, many are beginning to plan a fun and romantic date night for their significant other. It can get tricky to plan an unforgettable time when you are trying to save money. Don’t worry! We’ve got you covered with some ideas for a budget-friendly Valentine’s Day.

Spa Night At Home

A couple’s massage at a fancy spa might be out of your budget, but you can curate your own spa atmosphere at home. Set the mood by burning candles or diffusing a romantic essential oil from Eden’s Garden like this one. Spa music can easily be found online or on a streaming service. A few items you might need could include pillows, body lotion, facial masks, and moisturizers. 

Meal at Home

The cost of eating out can really put a dent in your budget. Save on this cost by spending time together in the kitchen making a romantic dinner for two. Consider using a meal service box for organic and sustainably sourced ingredients. 


If you or your significant other is adventurous, here is a date idea for you. Grab some warm blankets and hot drinks and drive out to an open area free from light pollution. There are some great apps out there to help find constellations and stars. Download it on your phone and have fun finding planets and stars. No telescope? Try using binoculars to find what you can’t see with your own eyes. 

Build Your Own Bouquet

For the creative couple, choosing a store-bought bouquet might seem cliche. However, bouquet building could change your whole perspective on this Valentine’s staple. Trader Joe’s and local farmer’s markets often sell elements to build a bouquet to fit your unique style. Have fun choosing flowers and greenery to make an unforgettable Valentine’s Day gift. 

Not your thing? Try making an account with The Bouqs Co. They handcraft unique bouquets that you can have sent right to your love’s door.
