Did you know the average person spends almost $140 on Valentine’s Day? Coming so soon after the Christmas holidays, that can be a real blow to your budget goals! If you’re trying to save money this year, check out these ideas for inexpensive ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
Visit us at Southwestern Skate Center! You may not have thought of skating as a romantic evening, but that works out in your favor in several ways. First of all, it shows your date that you’re creative and unique. Second, it means you don’t have to fight the crowds at most restaurants. And third, it’s inexpensive! You’ll keep to your New Year’s Resolutions (remember those?) by saving money and getting a little exercise without sacrificing fun and romance. Ask the DJ to play your song, hold hands on the skate floor, and do it all without overworked waitstaff breathing down your neck.
Instead of going out for a crowded, expensive meal, stay in and have a picnic just for you two. If the weather isn’t cooperating, no problem; bring your picnic indoors! Spread a blanket out on the living room floor, light some candles, turn the lights down, and indulge in your favorite romantic treats.
Make gifts for each other rather than buying expensive trinkets. Not only are handmade gifts more meaningful, but you’ll save a ton of money that can be better put towards your future together. Consider a collection of poems, a hand-written love letter, or even a retro mix CD of love songs.
No matter how you choose to celebrate each other, remember: it’s the thought that counts. We can’t wait to see you and your sweetie this Valentine’s Day at Southwestern Skate Center!
