If you’d rather stay at home in your apartment in Roanoke, VA and have a special date night on Valentine’s Day, here are a few budget-friendly date night ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
Dress to the nines, light candles, turn on Sinatra and enjoy on a romantic candlelight dinner for two.
Pull the mattress off your bed and into the t.v. room, pile it high with your softest pillows and blankets, pull on your pajamas, grab two spoons and your favorite dessert and snuggle in front of a movie.
Take turns asking one another questions. No matter how long you’ve been together there is always more to be learned about your better half. Don’t worry too much about the quality of the question. Even the most mundane of questions has been known to spark fascinating conversations in our house.
Play a board game. A little lighthearted competition can make for a very playful date night, indeed. If you’re feeling especially competitive put a little something on the line. We’ll leave the specifics up to you…
Purchase a ‘learn to salsa dance DVD’ (or something similar), clear away the furniture and dance the night away.
Spend a night in Italy. Rent Roman Holiday, eat pizza, sip wine and enjoy a bit of gelato. (Or substitute the country of your choice and make the necessary adjustments.)
Make playlists for one another and spend time listening to your favorite, romantic songs. Be sure to throw in a few memory-jogging selections!
