With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, now is the perfect time to think about how you can make the day special for your partner. Whether you’re going on a first date or taking out a long-time partner, the expectations around Valentine’s Day can be overwhelming – especially if you are doing it all on a measly student budget!
Looking to make a big impression on that special person in your life? Check out some of our best Valentine’s Day ideas for students:
Go on an activity date
Nervous about meeting your Valentine? An activity date is an easy way to break the ice. You could go bowling, mini golf, or even hit a roller disco! Once you and your date are in the competitive spirit, the conversation will be flowing in no time.
Make a home-cooked meal
Nothing says romance like a candle-lit dinner that you’ve cooked yourself! You could go for something classic like a steak dinner, or recreate Lady and the Tramp with some spaghetti and meatballs. You’ll save money on eating out at a restaurant, while impressing your date with your culinary skills.
Are you and your date not-so-secret film fanatics? Valentine’s Day could be a great opportunity to share your love of movies with a late-night movie marathon. There are plenty of romantic movies you can choose from, from famous flicks like When Harry Met Sally to modern day classics like Crazy, Stupid, Love.
Organise a scavenger hunt
Depending on the stage of your relationship, a scavenger hunt will really show you are going the extra mile for that special person. You can leave little post-it notes around your apartment or city, harking back to some of your most memorable moments, and end the night in style at a nice restaurant.
Looking for something a bit different? Why not do something creative to truly make the day stand out. You and your date could pick up canvases to paint each other, make hand-crafted cards or you could head out for a pottery class (depending on your budget!). No matter what your skill level is, you and your date will come away with something special to commemorate the day!
Take a walk around your town
Exploring the great outdoors will give you a great opportunity to learn more about your date, and enjoy some quality time away from distractions. You could visit a nature park, take in your city’s sights and attractions, or head out further for a hike through the woods. Best of all, it won’t cost you a thing!
