College kids always ball on a budget, so why treat Valentine’s Day any differently? It doesn’t take hundreds of dollars to make Valentine’s Day special. There are many ways to express how you feel on Valentine’s Day by spending time with the people you love. Here’s some ideas for a special day that won’t break the bank.
A Redbox movie and pizza
Send him to pick out a Redbox movie at the grocery store while you pick out a pizza from the freezer section. It’s a simple date but cuddly and yummy.
Search for lingerie on sale and light a candle
Looking for some more intimacy on Valentine’s Day? Order lingerie on sale as a special surprise for your special someone just under $20. Check out the sale and clearance sections on Victoria’s Secret, H&M, Aerie or Forever 21 for some affordable and sexy options.

Grab a quick coffee before work or class for some one-on-one time on Valentine’s Day. The fact that Valentine’s Day is on a Tuesday this year throws a wrench in a romantic evening date plan. The patio at Starbucks may be your romantic spot this year.
Picnic in the park
Grab some sandwiches and a bag of chips for the perfect Valentine’s Day picnic date. At FSU, we are blessed with some sunny afternoons, so go outside and plan a great picnic date for you and that special someone.
Skip the store-bought cards and create your own
Homemade cards are more heartfelt than store-bought ones. They take more time and effort which means so much more. To show your love on this day do something special with paper. Leave him notes on his desk, in his car and in the bathroom so he will see them!
Cheap wine and chocolate galore
Another romantic option is a bottle of wine and box of chocolate. It’s cliché but affordable. He’s expected to buy you chocolate, but a little more can never hurt. Also, a little bit of wine can lead to a little more romance, wink wink!
