Romantic ideas on a budget

Romantic ideas on a budget

Ways to spend quality time with your loved one without having to splash the cash.

We might not have the money to whisk our loved ones off to Paris or have dinner at a posh hotel, but we can still have romance…

1. Take the morning off work
You might relax together as a family at weekends, but every now and then it’s worth squeezing in half a day when it’s just you and your partner. Drop the kids at school then head for a favourite café with the newspapers, or go for a walk together.

2. Plant a tree
Treat yourselves to a new garden shrub or even a small tree (you can get an ornamental tree from around £20-30). Go to the garden centre and choose it together, then spend time planting it together. It’s a simple way to celebrate your relationship and it will grow for you both to continue to enjoy.

3. Go on a ‘mystery trail’ date
Arrange a babysitter for two different nights and then you both have to come up with a surprise date for the other one, including perhaps a set of clues to find in different places that eventually lead to where you are going to meet.

Savvy tip
You’d be amazed how little details can make a difference. Find out what your other half’s birthstone is and buy a small inexpensive trinket made with the stone, or fill the house with balloons in his or her favourite colour – something silly but personal to you both.
