Cheap Date Ideas for Valentine’s Day

Valentine's Day is nearly here, and probably, like me, you are looking for romantic Valentine's date ideas.

For me, Valentine's Day is about showing Mr. Budget how much I care but without compromising our goals for financial freedom and our budget.

That said, it is our thing also to have as much fun as humanly possible!

But what could you do as a couple when you value romance over money?

Here are a few of the cutest Valentine's day ideas I have found, which have been shared generously by the UK Money Bloggers or we have loved in the past.
