Whether you’re a struggling student or you’re simply trying to live more financially savvy, you can still treat your main squeeze to a fun and intimate Valentine’s Day without breaking the bank! Here are some of our favorite date ideas that will still keep you on budget!
Take a Hike…Together!
Nothing beats the affordability of your own two feet! Take a romantic stroll on the beach at sunset or gear up and head to your local trail head and enjoy the great outdoors with your special someone! Don’t forget to pack our Chia Squeeze pouches for a snack!
Watch the Sunset (or Sunrise!)
It’s hard to think of anything more romantic than watching the sun go down while embracing your one and only. Something about watching watching Mamma Earth do her thang really sets the intimate vibe! If you can’t schedule in a sunset and you’re both early risers, the good news is this show runs more than once a day and is arguably equally as romantic – it’s just in reverse!
The Classic: Picnic at the Park
Go old school with this timeless date strategy! Grab a blanket and cooler or basket filled with snacks and beverages and head to your local park!
Here is a simple Mini Peanut Butter and Chia Jam Heart Sandwiches recipe that you can include in your snack bag:
4-6 pieces of bread of choice
Peanut Butter of choice
Jam or Jelly of choice
1tsp chia seeds
Mix chia seeds with jelly in a separate bowl
Place peanut putter onto bread with a knife and then spread the chia jelly and onto the other side of the bread
Bring together and use cookie cutters to cut into fun shapes such as hearts!
Put into a container or reusable bag (such as a Stasher Bag) and enjoy!
A two-seater might be hard to get, but a bike ride together makes for a great time together. If you don’t own, chances are there is an affordable bike-share service in your town, perhaps even offering complimentary rides for new service! Cycling is not only a guaranteed good time, but it’s also an environmentally-friendly way to get some cardio in together and explore more of your town! Go ahead and bring along your picnic basket and stop at the park or beach for the ultimate timeless Valentine’s Day experience!
Stream & Swoon
Some might call it Netflix & Chill, but cliche or not you can’t argue with the money-saving affordability of a movie at home. If you’re already spending money on streaming services, you may as well make it a date!
Here is a DIY Garlic Butter Chia Seed Popcorn recipe to snack to ad some class to your home-theater experience:
