Ahh, the month of love. It’s already the first weekend of February. I hope your Valentine’s Day date is finally laid out. If you are still thinking about the 14th, do not fuss too much about it. Let me share with you some budget-friendly dates for the most awaited day of the month (apart from 15th and 28th, of course 😜)
If you like going to the movies, then nothing will beat watching your favourite movies or classic romance films together in the comforts of your home. Make the moment more special by building a fort (picture below) and binge-watching with bowls of popcorn.
Dining out is very common during Valentine’s Day. Sure, it is comfortable for you and your S.O. but here are some downsides to dining out. First, there is less privacy because of the number of people going out on a date that night. Second, your selection is limited to the menu of the restaurant. Third, if you fail to reserve a table, chances are you will not get any.
Here is an alternative. Cook your S.O.’s favourite dish at home and have dinner together. You can even start the date right at the grocery store.
Game date (videogames or boardgames)
Another awesome date idea is to play games together. It does not matter if it is just Tekken or Snakes and Ladders. What matters is that you two have so much fun with each other’s company.
Dine out with friends at a local restaurant
Check out your local bar. A lot of restaurants offer group discounts. In Batangas City, D’Brothers Sports Bar and Grill offers a 5-course menu Eat-all-you-can buffet for only P499 per person. You even get a free glass of wine. Here’s the catch. If you are one of the first 10 to reserve AND you come in a group of 6 individuals, you get one (1) free pass for the buffet.
DIY City Tour
Being tourists in your own city is another way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. For the tour, you can focus on a particular aspect in your town. For example, you can visit all the restaurants you haven’t tried yet or go museum-hopping. If your town is famous for old houses, like Taal, you can visit all the heritage sites there. While walking around town, don’t forget to HHWW 😉
Remember, Valentine’s Day is not only for couples. These date ideas are also best when shared with awesome friends.
