5 Budget-Friendly Valentine’s Day Ideas

Valentine’s Day is all about showing those you care about how much you love them. Sharing gifts with your loved ones is great, but there are plenty of ways to show you care without breaking the bank. 

 1. Cook dinner at home. 

Celebratory dinners look a little different than they used to, but that doesn’t make them any less special. Spice up dinner at home by dressing to the nines and cooking something you and your loved one both enjoy.

 2. Create an at-home wine tasting. 

Grab a couple of inexpensive bottles of wine and set up your own private wine tasting. Pair each bottle with a different cheese and cracker combo to create the ultimate tasting experience. 

 3. Serve them breakfast in bed. 

Even a simple breakfast feels luxurious when you get served in bed. Give your loved one the feeling of being on vacation with a tray of freshly scrambled eggs, fresh fruit, and a steaming mug of coffee or tea. 

 4. Pay homage to the year you met. 

Theme your date based on the year you met. Dress up in the popular fashion, listen to chart-topping music, and watch a movie that was made during the year you first came into each other’s lives. 

 5. Have a living room picnic. 

Rainy weather or no babysitter? Turn your living room into the perfect picnic spot by laying out a blanket, packing a basket of food, and playing ambient sounds to mimic your favorite spot. 

Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be an expensive holiday. Get everything you need for a budget-friendly celebration of love – from dinner ingredients to cheese and wine – delivered with Shipt.
