How to Have a Romantic Valentine’s Day under $50

Ah, Valentine’s Day! The holiday that gives couples everywhere an excuse to be extra gushy over one another. When it comes to things to do on the “Day of Love” options are endless. From romantic dinners to private classes, or an intimate night in, there are plenty of ways to make the day a great one. Personally, for me, my boyfriend and I don’t really make a huge deal out of the day. I’d much rather stay in and enjoy the company of the one I love. So instead of putting together a list of gifts to buy and places to go with your partner, I wanted to go a different route. After all, this day is all about love and not so much about material things. Yes, the drugstore candy and roses are cute, but what’s better than good ole’ quality time with the one you love without breaking the bank?

Here are some low-maintenance items you can grab to help you have the best Valentine’s Day Ever!

1.    Set the mood.
Who doesn’t love holiday decorations? I think these rose gold balloons are freaking adorable. They are an upgrade from the typical red, white, and pink decor we normally see.

2.    Tell the story of your love. 
I love this “Knock Knock What I Love About You” fill in journal! It’s so cute and such a great way to spell out exactly how you feel about your boo. Personalize it however you want. I’m sure this book will help get your night off to a great start.

3.    Share a toast.
This is a celebration! A celebration of the love you two share. Why not toast to it over some tasty champagne? These champagne flutes are not only unique they are also stylish and inexpensive! I also love that they can be reused for other celebrations.

4.    Enjoy each other’s company!
Life can get hectic at times, making it hard to spend time with your partner. Whether it’s watching a movie or cooking a delicious meal together. Appreciate the time you share. My boyfriend and I are pretty competitive so playing board games are fun. I love playing Jenga! I feel like it’s a great fit on any occasion.

I hope all you lovebirds have a wonderful and safe Valentine’s Day! XOXO

    Love the rose colored balloons, such a great idea and so much more affordable then over priced roses. And of course agree on the toast, nothing like a little bubbly to say ‘I love you.’

    My husband and I don’t really have much of a habit of celebrating Valentine’s day either. That being said, more than happy to use it as an excuse to toast some champagne!

    You provided some really good ideas here, you do not have to spend a lot on VDay at all, after all how much you spend celebrating is not important as love is priceless 🙂

    I like these ideas for staying in and for having a good budget. I think its crazy how much some people spend on Valentines day. I am single so I wont be up to much, I could do #3 on my own though, haha.

    You’ve raised great points! There is no use in bankrupting oneself over Valentine’s Day, since the basic idea would be to show our love, not the amount of money stored on our bank account. Love is not something we could put a price tag on, and even if you keep VDay simple, it can be magical.
