25 Super Romantic Last Minute Date Ideas for Valentine's Day

We’ve all been there. One day you’re celebrating the start of a brand new year and the next thing you blink and it’s the week before Valentine’s Day! Whether you’re planning a last minute date for Valentine’s Day because you forgot, looking for date night ideas on a budget, or just looking for some super romantic date ideas in general, this list if for you!

When my husband and I first started dating, we were on a seriously tight budget for all of our dates but especially for Valentine’s Day! I’m a huge fan of taking any chance we get to celebrate our loved ones so I truly love Valentine’s Day and getting an opportunity to do something extra special for date night. But being on a tight budget or waiting until the last minute (maybe because of crazy schedules if you’re a military spouse like me) to plan a date for Valentine’s Day can be super stressful and really put a damper on the whole thing.

That’s why I came up with this list of 25 date ideas for Valentine’s Day that are super romantic and easy to do regardless of how much time you have together and even your budget! Heck, some of these date ideas you can even do if you’re in a long distance relationship and can’t spend Valentine’s Day together!
