1. Take a trip to the farmers market.

It sounds strange but spending the day outside at the local market with your love can be a romantic experience. You get to pick your favorite fresh foods, try new ones and work together to create a lovely meal at home.

2. Volunteer together.

Volunteering is one of the most rewarding experiences. Find a soup kitchen or nursing home; it’s great way to bond and honor your love. Spread warmth and kindness not just to each other, but with those who really need it.

3. Have a picnic.

Traditional, inexpensive, yet often overlooked on this special day. Bring wine, goodies, and a special gift for her (a collection a love letters you’ve written over the previous week will show her how much you love her). If you’re in a warmer area take the picnic to the beach. This is great date idea for those who can’t celebrate at night.
