Valentine's Day: Five ways to celebrate Valentine's Day without breaking the bank

With Valentine's Day on the horizon, it can be easy to get swept up in the occasion. With videos circulating the internet of how others have chosen to celebrate the day, you can quickly find yourself in a situation where you are racking up a massive bill and putting a lot of pressure on yourself to have the perfect Valentine's Day. But in reality, Valentine's Day doesn't have to cost the earth and you'll find there are plenty of incredibly enjoyable ways to spend the day together, without breaking the bank. Here are Eldimaa Fashion's five top tips for an inexpensive Valentine's Day.

Visit a museum or historical site

There are plenty of museums, stately homes, abbeys and more that are free and a great way to spend your day. Roam around at your leisure, enjoying local culture and history with your significant other. Whether you are enjoying your favourite place or trying somewhere new, you can follow up with a nice meal or a drink out.

Go for a walk at a local beauty spot

Valentine's Day is about spending time with the person you love. Why not enjoy each other's company by going for a walk in a local beauty spot, be it a local park, public gardens or nature area. Take a trip to a local national park, or the beach for a romantic trip in the day, and even extend in the evening for a romantic walk under the stars.

Date night in

You don't always have to go out to celebrate the big occasions, why not make the night special by treating your significant other to a thoughtful night in. Cook them their favourite dinner, or cook together to make the night extra special. Create the perfect playlist with all their favourite songs and snuggle down in the evening with a glass of your favourite drink and their favourite film. You don't have to go out to have a great time.

Take a class together

Why not have some fun by taking a class together and trying something new. There are a lot of local classes that you can enjoy from cookery to dance classes, at a range of different prices. You don't have to take it seriously, just have a bit of fun together.

Put the money towards something in the future

Why not forgo celebrating Valentine's Day in the present, and put the money towards something fun in the future. Maybe you could save up for a fancy meal at a swish restaurant, a weekend away in the countryside or an exciting city break in the UK. Alternatively, why not put the money towards a holiday abroad, or agree to use the spending money whilst you're away.
