Valentine's Day doesn't have to mean fancy dinners. Here are a few fun ways to spend the 14th without feeling the need to overspend or stress.

Last-minute date ideas


1

Go for a romantic walk. Hold hands like you did when you first started dating.

Cook dinner at home. Light candles and feed each other chocolate-covered strawberries.

3

Put on some slow tunes and dance the night away.

4

Pick up some new lingerie and have a sexy Valentine's Day fashion show.

5

Rent some romantic movies, eat popcorn and cuddle on the couch.

6

Write down the things you love about each other. Read them aloud.

7

Have a living room picnic. Spread a quilt on the floor and enjoy fruit, cheese, bread and wine.

8

Recreate your very first date, or the moment you knew it was love.

9

Start sexting (while sitting in the same room) and see where the high-tech love messages lead.

Write down your bedroom fantasies, exchange them and then act them out.
