1. PICNIC AT THE PARKSkip the fancy dinner table and create a romantic picnic instead! Your partner will love the intimacy and thought put into a picnic. Plus, there’s lots of different picnics you can have. Here’s a little how-to-picnic for those looking to save a few bucks:
- Night Picnic – Make sure to bring a jacket or extra blanket you can both cuddle up with. You can show off your cooking skills by preparing a nice meal and pack it. Plus having a few candles (preferably battery operated) will help put you add the romantic mood.
- Day Picnic – If you want to do more than just a romantic meal, go for a day picnic. You can do a little exploring of your surrounding area, possibly even a day tour created by you and curated for that special someone.
- Picnic at The Park + A Movie – Many places show movies in the park and most of those movies have a specific theme, particularly on Valentine’s Day. But don’t let the park do all the work for you, show up with a few cozy blankets, a basket of snacks (preferably your partners favorites’) and crack open a bottle of wine.
