Try these awesomely free gift ideas this Valentine's Day...



1. A Romantic Dinner at Home

Need free things to do Valentine's Day? Try a romantic night at home with candles and a live concert.

Here are a few ways to set the mood:

  • Order in or prepare leftovers you reheat (saves time).
  • Set the table and put out the good glasses.
  • Light the candles and dim the lights.
  • Get all dressed up and make it special.


Stream your loved one's favorite music in the background. Just don't pick the free station with all the commercials (sorry, Pandora). You can play a live concert of their favorite music on YouTube.

2. A Soaking Bubble Bath

Best free things to do Valentine's Day? Make a bubble bath and play footsie.

If you want to surprise your sweetie, run a hot bubble bath, light the candles safely away from curtains where they can't tip over, and put on a little mood music to help them unwind and enjoy a relaxing spa bath.


3. Dinner and a Movie

Best free things to do Valentine's Day? Pick movies to watch together and enjoy buttery popcorn.

Make something together for dinner and bring it into the living room. Pick out a favorite movie or you can get tons of movies online if you start a FREE trial on Amazon Prime or Netflix. Can't decide on action or romance? Play both! Pop the popcorn, dim the lights, and enjoy a relaxing time together. 

Valentine's Day: Rest. Relax. Repeat.


4. Couple's Game Night

Best free things to do Valentine's Day? Play a board game and set a timer. That way you won't get bored waiting for your turn.

A cool way to entertain each other is with fun, nostalgic games like Life or Monopoly. Love cards? Shuffle the deck and start dealin'! If you pick a game like Scrabble, use a timer to keep the pace going. Loser gets to do the dishes. And you'll try to lose, right? 


5. A Walk in the Park and a Picnic Lunch or Dinner

Best free things to do Valentine's Day? Plan a lunch in a park. Just don't head to an area with hungry bears who like picnic lunches.

Depending on the weather, enjoy a casual walk in a nearby park:

  • Look for a mountainous area or lake and take a drive.
  • Bring a picnic basket with snacks and drinks.
  • Even if it's only sandwiches, it's the thought that counts.


Note: Pick an area that doesn't have bears (or they'll enjoy the sandwiches and snacks).

    7. A Site-Seeing Adventure

    Visit a new park or head to another town. But check the forecast.
