A pot luck is such a creative way to celebrate V-day. Both of you could show off your cooking skills and learn a bit more about each other through the art of cooking.

3. Challenge Accepted!

This is always fun! If you’re an adventurous couple, the best thing is either play board games at home or head out for game night at a bar. Either way, you could get competitive with bae and it might just turn out to be a blast.

4. Binge watch your favourite TV shows

5. Go bowling

Tinkle-toeing into Valentine’s day is perfect for couples who like to have fun instead of having a romantic night.

It’s the cheapest date you could go for but it’s equally romantic. Go for a walk, sit on a bench and have an amazing conversation.

7. Eat up “all-you-can-eat-buffet”

There are many restaurants that have the Valentine’s Day special fixed buffet. It’s unlimited delicious food. And most importantly, it’s romantic! The décor, the food, and the drinks are all special for that day to make you and your SO feel special.

8. Take a ferry ride

A ferry ride from Mumbai to Alibaug is so beautiful. Catch the one in the morning to enjoy the beautiful sunrise, a cup of coffee and the glorious sea.

9. Drive her crazy

Take her for a drive to Lonavala or Pune. Carry some food (or get some on the way). Make sure to load up on her favourite playlist for optimising this plan.

10. Go cycling

Are you a power couple? In that case, go for a run, or go for a long cycle ride. Compete with each other and then head for a nice breakfast buffet. Heath and romance together – it’s a win-win!

Money can’t buy love. And having no money can’t stop you from love either. These ideas are for those who don’t think you need a lot of money to have a good time with bae. As long as she’s with you, the place and activity really don’t matter.
