10 Cheap Romantic Ideas

10-Cheap-Romantic-IdeasI know that we all want to go on a cruise or away to a spa in order to show the love that we have for our partners, but it’s usually not easily affordable. That said, there are lots of gestures that you can make that will cost you very little. Here are 10 romantic ideas that will help you keep your budget intact.

  1. Make Breakfast in Bed – This can be as easy as serving cereal on a bed tray or eggs, bacon and toast, but it’s all about the gesture. Knowing what your love likes to eat and how they take their coffee are things that will make anyone smile.
  2. Leave Notes Around the House – Leaving little Post-Its on the refrigerator, in travel luggage or on a desk is a very sweet way to make someone’s day. You can do this as often as the mood takes you. Change up the note locations regularly just for fun!
  3. Give a Massage – Let’s face it, we’re all exhausted at the end of the day. Giving your partner a foot, head, hand or back massage will make them putty in your hands and give you good quality time together.
  4. Go for a Walk – Taking your partner’s hand and going for even a walk around the block can be romantic! Discuss your day, your hopes, your dreams, the squirrel that just ran by – anything – just be together.
  5. Do the Chores – Completing the chores that usually belong to your mate is a SUPER romantic thing to do, whether you realize it right away or not. Do the dishes, mow the lawn, clean the bathroom – whatever chore you know your partner will have to spend time doing when they get home. When they find that it’s already done, you’ll have time for that walk!
  6. Play Games – Break out the board games, the cards or a jigsaw puzzle and get down to business. Games can be a super fun way to put your competitive spirit in play and challenge your opponent. Have fun with it! Don’t take it too seriously and do something that you never make time for.
  7. Leave a Little Gift – Whether it be a flower from your garden or a piece of chocolate, everyone likes to be thought of. Pick up a $.50 bag of your honey’s favorite chips or draw a picture to leave on their pillow. It’s the thought that counts!
  8. Go on a Picnic – This can be at a park or in your backyard, but packing a little picnic and enjoying the day is a very romantic gesture for most. Grab a blanket, beverages and a snack or full meal (sandwiches, chips and fruit travel well!) and enjoy the afternoon.
  9. Light Some Candles – If you have some candles, light them and turn off all the lights. You can do this at any time of the evening, during dinner or after. Just changing the ambiance is something that can make the most average night a romantic night.
  10. Hold Hands – Sometimes it can be difficult to unwind after a long day, but holding hands might do the trick! It’s the smallest gesture, but it tells someone that you care for them and want to be with them. Whether it be in your house or at the movies, your partner will value the reminder.

There are all kids of ways to be romantic on the cheap! Do you have other ideas? I’d love to hear what you do!
