7 great Valentine's ideas for couples

All Woman

THE day of love has fallen in the middle of the month – that time when the budget is tight and you're existing merely on the hope that you'll make it to payday. But love knows no bounds, and even if you have to use your imagination only, Valentine's Day is a time to make your other half feel special.

How can you do this on a budget?

Go for a walk

A walk is invigorating, and a great way to bond and get to know someone. You and your date will be dating and exercising at the same time.

A day at the beach

You don't have to pay to enter the public beaches, so grab some provisions from home, head to Hellshire, and spread out your blanket.

Netflix and chill

There is not a more romantic and cost-effective way to spend the night, even if all you're watching is Pretty Woman for the 99th time.

Indoor picnic

Create the atmosphere right in your living room, with wine, crackers and cheese.

Take a walk in the park

Most public parks will open today, even if they close early. Hop on the bus and take a walk in the park, spend $200 on an ice cream cone, and share it.

Games night

This is a fun idea and a great way to bond. Twister is a great game for this event, and even though it's more fun with more people, you can pretend that you're doing it right, and show him all the ways you can bend.

Romantic indoor dinner

This is a creative way to stay on a budget. If you are a great cook, it is an even better idea.
